Rockstar Games' classic titles are being rated by ESRB
There's a lot of titles from Rockstar Games coming to PlayStation 4—if a new ESRB listing is to be believed.
The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, and Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition for release on PlayStation 4.
The listings offer no real additional information on whether these are planned remakes of the games or if they're just PlayStation 2 to PlayStation 4 ports that you can download from the PlayStation Store. Chances are they'll appear without enhancements or improvements, just simpler ways to play some of Rockstar's older game catalogue.
Both Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories originally appeared on PSP, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3. Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne made its way to PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2. Similarly, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition was available on PSP, PlayStation 2, and Xbox originally. All were fairly entertaining endeavors, so if you missed them in their various incarnations, this could be a good opportunity to give them a try.
Unfortunately, there are no dates or official confirmation from Sony to accompany these ratings. Hopefully those are coming soon. In the meantime, if you're hankering to play any of those games now, you may not have to dust off an old console to do so after all.
