Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories coming to PSN for $9.99 each next week

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories will be available as PlayStation 2 Classics for $9.99 each on the PlayStation Store next week, publisher Rockstar Games announced today.

Both games were originally released on the PlayStation Portable — Liberty City Stories in 2005 and Vice City Stories in 2006 — before being ported to the PlayStation 2 in 2006 and 2007, respectively. As PS2 Classics for PlayStation 3, they'll be re-releases of the PS2 versions, not HD remakes.

Liberty City Stories, which is set circa 1998 in the Grand Theft Auto chronology, stars Grand Theft Auto 3 side character Toni Cipriani of the Leone mafia family. Vice City Stories features Vic Vance, a brother of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City's Lance Vance, and takes place in 1984.

Vice City Stories appeared in a batch of six Rockstar titles that were rated by the ESRB in mid-December for a PS3 release on PlayStation Network. The other five games — Bully, Midnight Club, Midnight Club 2, Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix and Red Dead Revolver — are already available on the PlayStation Store.

Rockstar also said that more of its PS2 titles will be "coming soon" as PS2 Classics.
