‘GTA III’ to finally arrive on PSN this week

Following a nigh-on two month delay since the original announcement, Grand Theft Auto III will finally arrive on PSN tomorrow.

The Rockstar hit was originally put back due to an “unforeseen complication”, but the PlayStation Blog have today confirmed it will indeed be joining the PS2 Classics range in this Tuesday’s store update.

The download will be the original title, rather than a HD remake, and will set you back $9.99. At present it has only been confirmed for the US PSN, with no word on other territories.

You can read the official blurb below:

“From the days of the PlayStation 2, this downloadable game allows you to play the classic original on compatible PlayStation game systems.

Mob bosses need favors, crooked cops need help, the street gangs want you dead; so to compensate you’ll have to rob, steal, and kill in order to stay alive.

Developed by DMA Design, GTA3 is the first installment of the series to utilize a fully three-dimensional living city with open environments and non-linear gameplay. Additional features include a cast of hundreds of different characters, more than 50 types of vehicles, three hours of professionally recorded music, and a huge array of deadly street weapons.”
