Sony really likes porting GTA games to new platforms under the radar.
Recently we reported on the low-key release of the mobile port of GTA San Andreas on the PS3 via the Playstation Network. There were no notable announcements regarding the launch, and the only way most people realized that it happened was via the news reports that went up after someone accidentally came across it.
It seems the same thing happened again today, with a few more GTA titles. Though considering these games has mobile ports as well, not to mention the push towards backwards compatibility is big this generation, it was to be expected.
GTA 3, Vice City and (again) San Andreas have all been released for the PS4 platform. Yeah, PS4. It seems that while Sony has made it clear that they aren’t planning on making the PS4 backwards compatible unlike what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox One, they are porting a number of PS2 games to the new system.
Along the three mentioned GTA games, the announcement also included Dark Cloud, The Mark of Kri, Rogue Galaxy, Twisted Metal: Black and War of the Monsters. All together, that’s 8 classic PS2 games making their way to the current-gen console.
GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas were the three console games in the franchise which got mobile ports for their 10th anniversaries, and were sequentially released for the PS3 as well as the Xbox 360 in recent years.
The PS4 ports of the games feature an upscaled resolution, meaning they will be running at 1080p, and will be compatible with a number of PS4 features such as Remote Play, Live Broadcast, Share Play, Activity Feeds, and Second Screen support. The three GTA games will be purchasable through the PSN for $14.99 each.
