Are you ready to relive the glory days of late-90s gaming? 

If so, we have some good news for you: Rockstar's legendary crime-glorifying games Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto 2 recently received ratings by the ESRB for PlayStation devices, which strongly suggests that a release on the PlayStation Network should soon be in the cards.

Joystiq reports that the games have been rated for the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and PSP, with Grand Theft Auto receiving a rating of "M" (Mature) for animated blood and strong language.

Grand Theft Auto 2 received a more mild rating of "T" (Teen) for suggestive themes, strong language, and violence.

We don't know when to expect these games on the PlayStation Network just yet, but a release over the summer seems likely since the ratings have already been secured.

A search on the PEGI website showed no ratings for a PS Vita or PS3 version of either Grand Theft Auto game, but hopefully that will change in the weeks ahead.
