by Thomas on May 20, 2002 @ 5:30 p.m. PDT

Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing division of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. announced today that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 3 is now available in stores.

Grand Theft Auto 3 received worldwide critical and financial success when it was released for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system last October and quickly became the undisputed number-one selling video game of 2001.

The early word from journalists has been nothing short of outstanding, focusing on the enhanced PC version's features, including improved graphics and sound, additional controls, as well as several brand-new options for players to customize the game.

"With this release, we've been able to take the time to maximize the gaming experience for the PC platform," said Sam Houser, the game's executive producer and president of Rockstar Games. "We are delighted to share the Grand Theft Auto 3 phenomenon with an entirely new audience, as well as the huge numbers of diehard fans who have patiently waited for GTA3 to come out on the PC."

"We were thrilled to add even more features to enhance the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 3," added Les Benzies, the game's producer. "The only way to follow up on the stupendous success of the PlayStation 2 version was to bring even more immersive functionality to an already amazing mind-blowing gaming experience."

About Grand Theft Auto 3

Featuring a fully three-dimensional, living city, a combination of narrative driven and non-linear gameplay and a completely open environment, Grand Theft Auto 3 represents a revolutionary leap forward in interactive entertainment. Players are put at the heart of their very own gangster movie and let loose in a city in which anything can happen...and probably will...

Additional Features of the PC Version of Grand Theft Auto 3 include:

Customizable Skin. Players can change the skin of the main player. Will you play as Tony Soprano? As your girlfriend? Now it's up to you.
Create Your Own Radio Station. The radio stations in Grand Theft Auto 3 are world-renowned for their quality and sense of humor. Now you can add to the mix with your own MP3's.
Replay Saves. Want to see that jump again? Now you can enjoy it over and over with the brand new replay save feature.
PC Control Layout. Now that the game is on the PC platform, a new mouse and keyboard control scheme allows targeting-free gameplay. Or attach a PC gamepad and play classic Grand Theft Auto 3.
Since its release in October 2001 on the PlayStation 2, Grand Theft Auto 3 has continued to be a phenomenon gracing the top of the national charts everywhere it has been released. In its first six months in retail, the title has taken the videogame industry by storm. In addition to receiving more than 25 awards, including several "Game of the Year" commendations, Grand Theft Auto 3 has garnered critical acclaim from all corners of the media. From articles in The New York Times, The Associated Press and USA Today to a cover story in SCEA's Official PlayStation Magazine, the press has unanimously praised the game for its technical innovation and groundbreaking design.
