A simple bit of news this. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is coming to the US PlayStation Store from tomorrow according to the Rockstar News Wire, meaning you can head back to Los Santos and get down with the Grove Street massive once more.

Spread your green gang colours across the map, eat burgers, beat people with a purple dildo while wearing a gimp suit, jet pack around, fly a fighter jet and gamble all your hard-earned dirty cash at the Las Venturas casinos... It's all in San Andreas.

And it'll all be on the PlayStation Network from tomorrow, December 11th. You can get the full details when we do our usual 'This Week on the PSN' post tomorrow.

[Thanks, Chris]

#2 Yeah, they should make it like those collection games and just add trophies. Must have platinum, though.

I hope that one day, there could be an HD remake, a long with a hidden map area of new easter eggs, how neat would that be?

Loved this game on PS2, played the crap out of it.

Sadly, trophies are it. So...not trophies. No buy.

Might buy it (at some point). Don't have my PS2 and the game available at the moment. Even though there are no trophies, it's still a fantastic game.

Not excited by this, really. Played it on ps2 and that was good enough for me. Maybe if it had trophies. But I still don't know if i'd pick this. HD remake + trophies...then it's prolly a go. But my ps2 version works just fine.

Was playing this on PS2 the other day -- still great. Killer soundtrack, though the graphics are a bit on the ugly side. Anyhow, no real reason to pay for it again... really wish they'd make these playable on Vita somehow, though.

It's on PSN only for a reason, that's why it isn't in HD. If they were to make a HD version, they put it in a HD collection with other GTA titles then they will port it over to PSN like every HD collection titles. But for the time being, it's better to have an old San Andreas for PS2 and stick it in your PS3 to play.

Eh...I've been told I need to play this, but there's something about playing old games...I mean, I'm one of those people who doesn't give a crap about backwards compatibility, but I'm willing to play an older game like the PS Collections if it's remastered because there was extra effort made to make the game not look like a Game Boy port. I didn't play many games during the old PS2 days, but if this is just a copy of the PS2 release then I feel like it's worth skipping since it's really not anything new.

@26: You can get it cheap in nearly every steam sale and play with modded graphics on a 5 year old PC.
It's more than worth to play - but an eye sore with old graphics and lost potential without trophies unless you are one of those who go for 100% regardless.

(And people hope the PS4 will have backwards compatible) when they can just stick a PS2 port onto the PSN and make $$$, and you wonder why they pulled it from the PS3. Seeing as alot of you are happy, i can safely say people are there own worst enemy.

I love San Andreas, but as I already own the PS2 and PC versions, there's no incentive to get a PS2 Classic version which is essentially the same thing.

While I generally don't like the idea of buying old PS2 games with no new content added to them, my copy of GTA:SA broke, so I'm actually tempted by this.

SA was lacking, it was too much of a sim and had the worst main character of the PS2 GTA era.

Give me Vice City any day, better music, better story and cooler setting.

i'm really getting sick of "no hd no trophies = no buy" comments and i also find it ironic how people are not willing to buy a game they may already have for their ps2 but if it had achievements, they would buy it instantly... should be thanking rockstar they are even releasing these for the ps3 for those who've never played these games before

What's wrong with people stating that they won't buy it unless it is updated with HD visuals and trophies? This might be good for the few people who have never played it but most gamers interested in this have already played it countless hours and would like an HD update.

I don't think there's anything wrong with Rockstar releasing GTA as a PS2 Classic but I also understand people being disappointed when they see it isn't an HD update.

On another note I just recognized your username. You're the same person that argued with me on the GTA 3 article. Your response to everyone complaining about GTA 3 not being an HD update was "don't like it don't buy it". When people see that it isn't going to be a HD update they're going to criticize it. You don't respond to that criticism with "don't like it don't buy it. It's not a valid counterargument and it doesn't address the criticism at all.

@39 so having better graphics or trophies justifies buying the same game again and as you have stated for those who have played countless hours on it... in the end, you are still playing the same game? the pc version has better graphics so i guess people will waste money on that version when they realize it's the same damn game they played on their ps2... instead of all these whiny complaints, these people should be thanking rockstar

You haven't explained how it justifies buying the same game again? How the hell do trophies or HD remake change the core of the game? You are still playing the same game no matter what.

How does that forum make me a hypocrite? I'm simply stating what I'm stating here that most of the vita games are already games that are out on the PS3 even though the Vita versions have minor tweaks. If anything, the best version between Vita and PS3 will be the PS3 version anyway (EX. LEGO BATMAN, LORD OF THE RINGS, CALL OF DUTY, NINJA GAIDEN, ASSASSIN'S CREED FOR VITA ALL GOT AVERAGE TO NEGATIVE REVIEWS COMPARED TO PS3) even though you can't really compare the power of a full console to a handheld. People here are so obssessed with trophies even though I know it's a trophy site but what the hell do they do for you? They complain about no trophies or HD even though it will be the same game but if it had trophies they are willing to waste money on it again. I'm grateful companies are making Vita versions of their PS3 counterparts but when most of the games get mediocre reviews.. there's really no point except to just go with the PS3 version.. GTA however is a different matter.. it was already a great game on the PS2 and just ported over to PS3. Talking about a PS2 game that's released on a newer console than comparing a vita game to a ps3 game is a totally different matter.

You completely missed the point. Refer to post number 5 of the link I provided. You got irritated at someone because they said "don't want it don't get it." If that's not hypocritical then I don't know what is.

"You haven't explained how it justifies buying the same game again? How the hell do trophies or HD remake change the core of the game? You are still playing the same game no matter what."

What's the big mystery here? Those things are absolutely enough to make me want to buy it again. And obviously there is a decent demand for HD re-releases with trophy/achievement support.

What are you so confused about?
