Vice City Now Available on PSN; more PS2 Classics on the way?

BullyGTA IIIGTA: San AndreasMidnight Club 3Red Dead Revolver, and now GTA: Vice City. Rockstar Classics are finding a second (third for some mobile-friendly titles) life through the PlayStation Network at the moment, and it appears that there is more to come. Rockstar signed off their release announcement today with this tantalizing tidbit:

"Stay tuned for future announcements on additional Rockstar titles being added to the PS2 Classics collection very soon."

Back before Christmas, along with Bully, Midnight Club 3 and Red Dead Revolver, it was noticed that GTA: Vice City Stories and the original Midnight Club 1 & 2 had been re-rated by ESRB for PlayStation 3 also.

The assumption would be that these three will be the next to be added Rockstar's PSN catalog. There are, however, memorable titles which have not yet appeared on ESRB's website which would be good contenders for re-release - including GTA: Liberty City Stories and The Warriors. Either way, more to come is guaranteed, so keep an eye out!
