SA Goes Gold!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 07:55 PM MDT | By Zidane
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is complete, ready and waiting to be shipped and played!

You can check out this little bit from www.insidegameronline.com, to see a little bit more about it.

As we know, San Andreas is rated 'M' for Mature. But to clear something up, the PC version will be available in the summer of 2005.

Source: Planet GTA

* Edit: For the viewers confused about this announcement, the term "Gone Gold" means development is completed and the game is sent to the publishers (Take2) for production (the many hundreds of thousands DVDs/Manuals and packaging). The announced release date still stands, and Gone Gold in a way is the final confirmation of that date. Not much longer to wait! :)
- Shawn.

Now, the most important question of all - did they decide to lock San Fierro and Las Venturas before going gold? Hmm...

If you can't wait two weeks, try waiting for the PC version! :P

While true, they CAN release it as early as tomorrow... but it wouldnt be fair to release it one state @ a time.. They can only produce so many copies in one day, it'll basically be one state a day..

Going "gold" dosen't mean the game will be ready to ship the next day, it simply means that the code is final and the game is ready to be published which in reality takes a few days to make all the copies (since San Andreas will be popular, R* will probably make more units, so more like a week). I would be a strech but R* could ship it on the 19th (which they won't) but it is impossible for it to ship tomorrow.

As another example, Halo 2 went gold on Monday, but is not being released till November 9th.

They can't just wave a magic wand, then they're able to be shipped. There's a lot of work, and a lengthy process to it.

Glad we can put an end to all those damn "y izn tis gaim goold yit?" questions...

Oh and thanks for unbanning me on the comments section Zidane, but I still can't post on the boards....

Also, since I know you guys are going to get around to it, I might as well say it here and now... Please post a disclaimer when you report the "news" article from SPonG.com, they're not a reliable source of info and should be considered to be on the same level as a supermarket tabloid. I'm not saying it's 100% BS because I don't know for sure, but due to the source and how the original article reads, , it just doesn't look too reliable...

It seems like the more Info I find out about SA the more I lose interest because it takes the fun out of exploring the game,so I may not visit any more sights and just wait for the release date.

i hope spongey is wrong about the co-op, R* really should think before they jump into making the second (co-op) player female i mean if you have a friend that you want to play coop wit it may seem kinda gay and all what with him playin as ur girlfriend, and i mean seriously who's lucky enough to have a girlfriend that actually wants to play Grand theft auto! most of them are to buisy on their phones to give a rats ass about a game.... sigh

All of us here think "Spong" is wrong which is why we refuse to even post about it. But hey, maybe they're right, we'll find out soon won't we. We just won't give credit to an article of this content from a site that does not have a history in reliability.
