Grand Theft Auto III (RAGE Classic) looks Awesome
Listing on PlayStation Asia website indicates Rockstar's PlayStation 2 action gaming hitting PlayStation 3 next week following delay.
Grand Theft Auto III will arrive on the PlayStation Network September 25, according to a product listing on the PlayStation Asia website. A Rockstar Games representative was not immediately available for comment.
Rockstar Games' 2002 PlayStation 2 action game was supposed to arrive on PSN July 31, but was delayed indefinitely due to an "unforeseen complication."
When GTAIII does launch on PSN, it will be a $10 download. The rerelease will not be updated with high-definition visuals or receive Trophy support.
If you want HD graphics just buy the game on Steam. You can even use a 10x draw distance mod to make the game looks more awesome.
Trophies and HD graphics would be nice but I honestly don't give a crap. I just want to play the game. I wish that they would bring SA and VC to PSN also. Wouldn't mind repurchasing those.
I hope they make your PS3 backwards compedable soon or re-releace most of the other games Rockstar made, like; Bully, Midnight Club... etc
Here's a few more details
That's called exploitation of no backwards compatibility. The sun will not shine for gamers as long as current trends continue to be.
Why no HD remake? I would have done it all over again otherwise, awesome game that it was and still is!
even though all pc's made within the last few years can run it with better resolution settings....? even the iPhone/pad versions are HD....
thoroughly confused by the no HD decision.
Don't mean to be a party pooper here, but I cannot get stoked for a ten year old game that I have already played a couple of times. Same goes for most all of the other old games that get re-released over and over. At least we have the choice to not play it.
Wierdly as much as I enjoyed the game, I never seem to go back and play old GTA games, tempted to give it a shot through PCSX2 now though.
well i still have my ps2 i can just play it there since it wont get better graphics or trophy support nice try though on getting gta on the psn before gta 5
I have a BC PS3 and the disc versions look horrible on an HDTV. If they really did nothing about the visuals... well, if they don't care why should anyone else.
for lazy people that don't want to get up and put a disc into the ps3/2 ...for the price of two ps2 classics you can get a nice ps2 slim and still play a few of their games online with official servers
