Manhunt and The Warriors headed to PSN

Published at 7:27 PM PST

Rockstar has announced that the original Manhunt will be released on PSN next week, May 14th. For $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 it will join nearly all of Rockstars' PS2-era games - including Grand Theft Auto III through GTA Vice City Stories, Midnight Club 1 & 2, Red Dead Redemption and Bully.

The announcement also mentions that The Warriors will be joining Manhunt on PSN in the near future.

The only remaining PS2-era titles in Rockstar's backlog now are Manhunt 2, Max Payne 2, The Warriors and State of Emergency. I've mentioned before that I can't see State of Emergency being re-released, however Max Payne 2 is near guaranteed to be seen on PSN in the future - it would complete the collection.

Manhunt 2, on the other hand, could be more tricky; if they re-release the censored version I can't see an issue, however with the controversy surrounding the game, it's hard to say whether it's a contender or not. That being said, the original Manhunt had no easy ride on the market either, and they've made is PSN ready, so let's be optimistic. Manhunt 2 was originally released uncut and adults-only on PC, until the reseller was acquired by another company who chose not to store AO games.

We'll keep you informed of any new announcements. Until then, be sure to download your copy of Manhunt on PSN May 14th.
