Bully, GTA: Vice City Stories rated for PS3

[UPDATE] Bully, Red Dead Revolver, and Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix now available through PlayStation Network at $10 each.

[UPDATE] Rockstar Games today officially announced that Bully, Red Dead Revolver, and Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix are now available to download through PlayStation Network at $10 each. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and other titles, will be available on PSN "soon," Rockstar said.

The original story follows below.

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board this week rated Rockstar Games' open-world game Bully for PlayStation 3, suggesting the game is headed for a release on Sony's latest console. The listings were spotted first by PlayStationer.

In addition to Bully, a pile of other Rockstar Games titles were also rated for PS3 in the past week. These include Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Midnight Club, Midnight Club 2, Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix, and Red Dead Revolver.

That game was canceled by Capcom in 2003, with Rockstar later picking it up.

Rockstar has not announced any plans to bring any of the above titles to PS3, and the company was not immediately available to comment.

Just my personal opinion: when I bought bully at launch for the 360 I tought it would be really cool, but it ended up to be a very repetitive game which eventually left me dissatisfied for most aspects.

I had Bully on the 360 and it froze every half hour.  I bought it on ps2 when I sold my 3Shitty.  The pc version's pretty good, too, but if it's the Scholarship edition on PS3, I'll buy it.  Otherwise, the original works on my ps3 just fine.

Man I just can't imagine how awesome MC3 can be on PS3,runs at 60 fps most visceral racing game ever! 

Remembered the game was too fast for PS2 and it frequently drops below 15 fps.

Bully is so good. I have no problem paying for it multiple times. Viva la Rockstar!

None of this means ANYTHING to me until 'The Warriors' gets the HD treatment. 

 

And do it right.  Don't just port it.

I love bully, I had it for the Xbox 360, but the game broke. If they actaully added anything to it, I'd possibly buy it for the PS3, but more then likely it's just a straight port.

Why bother make an article out of this...did they come up with a worse-than-M-rating now? Maybe they should in light of this caliber of game and all the soulless developers who are massing behind them through the floodgates...

Bully was awesome. Toned down a lot from the original concept. But I have to say that was arguably the best game soundtrack ever made.

More HD remakes coming to PS3. or Playstation 2 Classics on PSN. Either way these game are worth another go.

Nice... Midnight Club II was one of the first games I had for PS2 along with Zone of the Enders the 2nd Runner. Great memories I'm happy to finally be able to have MCII and MC3 DUB playable on PS3. I never got to Tokyo but I will love to drive around LA at night again. I still hope they make a sequel on PS4/720 but it sounds like that's probably not going to happen.

Hopefully they release these older games in a bundle for cheap.. that would be awesome!

I don't get it, what are the ratings then?  Why make the article about the ratings if you don't tell us what the ratings are?

Damn, I didn't realize Rockstar actually bought the rights for Red Dead Revolver. Probably the best move they've ever made, Revolver and Redemption are easily two of the best westerns of all time.

 @Giganticguyver4 State of Emergency was soooo hard but so good in story even though it was all text if I remember correctly.

 @dannybrown93 I was trying to explain how much better that game was compared to the movie to my girl last night.  Its almost impossible to understand. :D

GTA V is coming next year. One game a year from Rockstar is more then enough. I doubt releasing old games takes away from any new titles that may have or may not yet have come into development.

 @daniel_chacon Bully was so awesome but the missions where you had to infilatrate the nerd headquaters was so damn frustrating along with the mission where you have to protect the gate from the jocks.

 @Landsharkk It's not about the ratings, it's about the fact that they were rated, which usually means a game release is unofficially "official", but I don't really put too much stock in that anymore. Prince of Persia HD and Splinter Cell HD were rated for 360 and never came out.

 @Landsharkk Its the fact that it means theres a good chance of them rereleasing these on the PS3.

 @maxshep4520 Yes, Yes, 1000x YES.  Out of all of Rockstar's games, The Warriors is the one game I want to see get the royal HD treatment the most.

 

Can you dig it?  Because apparently, Rockstar can't.

 @maxshep4520 I'd love to have a 1080p The Warriors re-release. Even the Xbox1 version could do 720p.

 @ABakedAlien  @Hardstyler2012 I never said that releasing old games takes anything away from games in development, so don't know what you're getting at? i don't know about anyone else but i'd love a couple of games a year from R*

 @sunyatanada76  Back when it came out.  Sold my 360 in 08.  They took too damn long to patch it.

 

It was a shame.  Bully was one of those games I liked to play for hours between saves.  The 360 version was basically unplayable.
