San Andreas Trailer "Later This Week"

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:08 AM MDT | By Neil
Eurogamer.net recently attended one of Rockstar's secret press meetings, where they received a 40-minute-long preview of the game in action. More interestingly though, is their confirmation of a date for the long-awaited trailer.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is due for release on October 22nd. Check out the official trailer later this week, with more first-hand impressions and chats with Rockstar in the coming weeks.
-- Eurogamer.net, August 16th, 2004.


That's official, you'll be seeing GTA: San Andreas in action in just a few short days' time. Have fun waiting!

They need to do their GTASA theme site soon, maybe they'll do that sometime today or tommorow, they usually do the theme site, then the trailer, so here's hoping they stick to their guns. :D

Yeah, I hope they'll release the trailer and simultaneously launch the "real" teaser site. Either on the official site or as a spin-off like Kent Paul's site for Vice City.

"The Daily Mail will be tut-tutting at the very prospect of glamorised street violence. We can see the frontpage headlines already. (In fact, we have seen them already.)"

That's a quote from the article. Does that mean that there'll be an interactive newspaper that reports all the crimes that happen in the state? :)

The trailer is a minute long exactly, but about 10 or so seconds are just the logos and RP signs, which kinda sucks, since we all know what its gonna be rated and who its made by. But anyway, its a good trailer, I've been rewatching it all morning. Like I said before, I can't share it yet because Rockstar hasn't, or I could be fined, which would suck. Also while I was at Rockstar I got to play the game for like 5 minutes, they snatched the controller from me after that because they didn't want me to find out too much, but to play basketball, you go to a basketball court and press R3, then a whole bunch of thugs come in (you can also bring your gang along with you if you want) and a game starts, its a lot like NBA Street, theres even a boombox playing in the background and people watching, the crowd really gets riled up over the littlest thing, like passing the basketball through the other teams legs, its really fun to play.

You people are too freaking gullible. #73 never played the game and he's never seen the trailer. I think we all know the trailer will be a min. long, and anyone can make up that shit about basketball.

Well, the car damage was pretty much the same as the last two, I didn't play long enough to see any dirt build up on my car, but I did see some dirty cars, so I stole it and the guy ran to a payphone and called the cops! It played the phone call like in the cop cars how you hear the radio chatter, so you know how the cops found you, and the cops came to the one area but didn't find me, I parked inside a garage at a house and closed the doors, the cops went by right outside (I could hear the sirens), and unlike the past games, they didn't automatically know where I was! After they left I went outside and started a basketball game. I wasn't in the game too long before they snatched the controller away. They also told me that when you go to Pay n' Spray, you get to pick the color you want your car painted. Also if you have any upgrades on your car it costs more than a normal respray. I think normal ones were always $1000 in 3+VC, but I can't remember.

There weren't that many body upgrades though, maybe you have to unlock newer ones later on, but there were only 3 body kits total, and they were all pretty ugly. They told me that there would be plenty more races this time, which is why they decided to add upgrades.

Tomorrow the trailer comes out, Rockstar just contacted us (IGN, and yes, I have played the game for 5 minutes before they took the controller away from me :P) and told us they will put up the trailer tomorrow around 8PM EST on their site, which is when we can put it up too.
