Sony is getting ready to unleash two awesome last-gen games on the PlayStation Network: Grand Theft Auto 3 and War of the Monsters, both of which will arrive on July 31, 2012. The PS2 Classics release was revealed on the latest PlayStation Blogcast (via Siliconera), along with the news that PSP versions of The Warriors and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will soon be PS Vita-compatible.
Rockstar Games' GTA3 should need no introduction; the open-world action game set a standard that just about every other open world title from this gen and the last one built upon in some way. War of the Monsters is a 3D fighting game in which monsters resembling Godzilla, King Kong, and other giant-sized beasts do battle in a variety of urban settings. For those who haven't played before: it's glorious. A definite PS2 era gem.
