Rockstar Games has confirmed that it's releasing two classic Grand Theft Auto games on the PlayStation Store next week, in the form of GTA: Liberty City Stories and GTA: Vice City Stories.The GTA titles have delivered some great experiences over the years, not just on full-fledged consoles and PC but also on portable devices like the PSP, which received not one, but two prequel titles called Liberty City Stories, which explored events from before GTA 3, and Vice City Stories, which acted as a prologue for GTA: Vice City.
Now, the two titles are coming to the PlayStation 3 in the form of PS2 Classics, meaning they're upgraded to work on the home console, but they don't feature any extra things like improved visuals.
In case you forgot about the two games, check out their descriptions below, via the Rockstar Newswire.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Toni tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.
Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, its growth fueled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drugs trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal.
As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed.
Both games will appear next week on the PS Store, on April 2 in North America, and April 3 in Europe and the rest of the world for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 each.
