GTA: San Andreas - Official Boxart

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 10:43 AM MDT | By Zidane
Richard from R* has sent us the official boxart for San Andreas!
Hey guys,
I wanted to let you know that we are about to release the official box art for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. As we thought you would want to see it as soon as it came out I have attached it to this mail.
Thanks for the support and let me know if you have any questions.

R* Webmaster




Rockstar have also updated the Warehouse (their online store) with a new image:



I just made my own SA Box, but my camera batteries are dead, so I'll post a pic up tonight or tomorrow. :)

I see an AK. Why does every AK in the gaming world has to be a 47? What's wrong with the AKM or VEPRII?

Because AK-47 is the generic/standard A.K weapon, and I don't think it's worth spending alot of time to get the rights to use a different style gun.
Let them do their thing, man!

Yes, this is the art that will be printed as an insert for the DVD box. Of course, they've not included the spine or back cover because they're probably not designed yet.

Thats a good cover, But will this, like somone already asked, will this be the same for UK abd USA? Because Vice's was i think.

And where are they planing to release this? GTAGaming has got it before its propperly relased like he said in the mail. But will this be released along with a new teaser site maybe?

Adidas.

Enough about the teaser site. This is just a standard box art release.
And it will obviously be the same for both UK and US. GTAIII's box art was different ofr both however GTA:VC's box art was the same for both.

#16 what do you mean "where are they planning to release this?" It will be released as the box art for the game when it comes out in October.

Well, this is def. my favorite box art cover out of the other two. It looks damn awesome, and I'm glad they got the AK-47 on the front ;) Hopefully they add it in the game this time, unlike Vice City. It showed Phil Cassidy holding an AK, but it wasn't added :(.

This box art looks friggin awesome!! Its funny how a game like GTA still has to do the RP business on the box. Its not like this game is going to be rated Teen or E.... AO perhaps? 8O

I'm hearing a lot of people thinking it's the golden gate bridge on the cover:

I think it looks a lot more like the San Francisco / Oakland Bay Bridge:

I noticed one screen with perhaps smoke driving (drive-by on the bottom) also, notice the artwork with the hands and the gambling? It looks an awful lot like Donald loves' hands or even Don Salvatore. (Observation from planetgrandtheftauto.com) :)

Trolleys, street signs, great new info. Also in the bottom right, the jumbo jet has been added. It wasn’t there in the original drawing (which I think was printed on page 16 of the PS2 Au issue). I wonder if there trying to make a point,… maybe you can fly it.

@30 Of course it won't be AO. I don't know of any stores who sell AO games. Rockstar would want their game to be in more stores rather than hae more bad content. The two previous gTA games have been rated 'M' so why shouldn't tis one? Trust m, itl lbee raed 'M'.

(GRR, STUPID KEYBOARD! I'm only pressing those buttons ONCE! Not five times, or not at all, I'm pressing them ONCE. I'm about to throw you out the window, stupid keyboard! Well, maybe not, because now you're working.)

Beh, I wasn't expecting it being so bright either. It doesn't really matter. Don't judge a book (or game) by its cover.

And onwards, I agree with Switch. I WANT THAT GAME. Right now, I wonder if somewhere RockstarGames employees are playing.. Having 110% satisfaction..

#48 ..you idiot, why would you want a game cover to be dark? it would just look dead to me. thats why it's bright so it can catch peoples attention. i believe it will catch alot of peoples attention and will want to buy it on the spot.

I agree. People, stop complaining, just check out the cover. Three most obvious things from one square. One, trams are now confirmed, the Golden Gate Bridge is also there, so trams are in San Fierro (I was right with my post yesterday then :D).

Also, there is a street post in the square, as with other squares. This is proof of the incrediable detail.

Thats a nice cover, better than what I excpected. Imagine a mission where you have to play a game in the casino with the Koza-Nostra guy on the front. And if you win, you might end up in a fight, and you both pull out revolvers, hoping your shot will be first, that is

That would be sick... in a good way
