GTA 5 Celebrates San Andreas, GTA SA HD for 360 is 4 BUCKS! (UPDATE)
A GTA San Andreas-themed job in GTA V (GTA Online).
(UPDATE: As of October 27th, the HD port of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is still being offered for $3.74 on the Candian Xbox Marketplace, via Xbox.com. Its uncertain how long this price will last, or if it is a new, permanent price. In any case, at under $4, this is a no-brainer for any Grand Theft Auto fan to purchase.)
The Ganton Gym. Cluckin’ Bell. Mt. Chiliad. Caligula’s Palace. Ten years ago today, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas launched on PlayStation 2, and Rockstar is celebrating the anniversary with special events in Grand Theft Auto 5, ending today. Because everybody likes to party sometimes, C.J.
Ten user-created missions evoking the 2004 game are available now in Grand Theft Auto Online, with callbacks to San Andreas’ BMX riding, jet flying, and bloodring demolition derbies, as well as rumbles in latter-day Grove Street.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has already gotten a high-definition re-release on Xbox 360, launching today for $14.99. When it launched in 2004, the game received many reviewers’ highest-ever scores. As of 2011 it sold more than 25 million copies across all formats, and that was before its re-release on mobile devices. Fans disagree whether it is the best game in the series, but it’s undeniably a landmark title in video gaming.
Correction: Evidently the game is on sale for $3.74, which appears to be special anniversary-day pricing. The download is 2 GB.
GTA San Andreas for Xbox (the new 360 version should look noticeably better).
