Rockstar Games has today announced that it will release a pack containing both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox later this year. It's not yet clear whether the games will in any way improve upon the PS2 originals other than the improved visuals for the Xbox version, but today's announcement is sure to please Xbox owners who, until now, have been without a GTA game of any description.
The PlayStation 2 pack priced at $39.99 is currently scheduled for release in North America on October 22, with the Xbox version priced at $49.99 following on November 4. We'll bring you more information on the games as soon as it becomes available.
