And now, two games united only by the details of their release, and nothing else. Next week, on January 29, Platinum Games' hair witch project Bayonetta, and the PS2 Classic Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, will be available on PlayStation Network for PS3, for $20 and $10 respectively. Both games will be available the next day in Europe.

One important caveat: the PS3 version of Bayonetta is not the ideal version. A patch fixed loading time issues, but users continue to report framerate and texture loading issues in Sega's PS3 port.
