Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2 coming to PlayStation Network

Rockstar has been releasing its entire Grand Theft Auto library slowly but surely on PlayStation Network. But now that the two "Stories" games have hit, it's running low on the modern-era games. What to do? Why, release the classic overhead ones, of course.
A pair of ESRB listings (via NeoGAF) have outed both the original Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto 2 for the PlayStation 3, Vita, and PSP. Other GTA releases were similarly revealed through ESRB ratings, though occasionally we've seen a long span of time between the rating and a release.
These early GTA games were shown in overhead perspective, rather than the third-person 3D camera that became the series standard after GTA3. It's quite a bit different than the modern games, but it can still serve as a bit of nostalgia while we prepare for Grand Theft Auto V. While you wait, why not check out our retrospective on the series?
