Will Sony Port All PS2 GTAs To PS3?

We may not be getting backwards compatibility, but Sony hardly wishes to leave the glory days of the PS2 behind.

Not only do we have the God of War Collection coming, but a recent leakage of documents outlining the content of a meeting between SCEA and Sega have hinted at the return of many PS2 titles on the PSN and on top of which, other developers may give their classic last-gen titles a high-def makeover. Now, we get to bring Grand Theft Auto into the mix... According to PS-Insider, Sony and Rockstar have been in talks regarding some sort of exclusivity deal, but it's not about a new project; it's about the old GTAs. It seems they want to bring back the likes of GTAIII, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas, complete with the updated visuals the GoW franchise has received. This isn't really a series that requires stunning visuals to succeed but we won't balk at the possibility of a high-def Tommy Vercetti. Furthermore, wouldn't it be sweet if the PS3 could play every last GTA ever made since the release of GTAIII way back in 2001? All these remakes would be a great way of paying homage to last-gen classics, all the while upping the current library of the PS3.

We might hear more about this before the end of the year; there are no more major shows scheduled, so such an announcement might just pop up out of the blue. We'll have to wait and see.
