In the US, Grand Theft Auto 3 is arriving on the PlayStation Store as a PS2 classics game - and users will be able to snap it up by the end of this week. It was first released on PlayStation 2, and now many more consoles have had it rolled out.
Apple’s iOS and Android were the latest platforms to have gotten in, featuring in its 10th Anniversary celebration. The official description reads:
“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”.
