GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 07:51 PM MDT | By Kodo
Edit: One new screenshot added, see below.

PSM, an unofficial Playstation 2 Magazine, has new screenshots and information in the United States August issue. A lot of what all the magazines know came from the same showing in the secret room at E3, but this issue does have a few new screenshots and some more detailed information. Newly confirmed information:
- On the game map Los Santos is only a tiny bit in the lower right corner.
- You can wear a lot of new clothes.
- Dual wield multiple gun types.
- More mini games.
- Vehicles get rusty and dirty as time goes by.
- Carl's customizations include: Hairstyle, Physique, Weight, Driveing Skills, Clothes, Possessions, Weapon Skills, Chracter, Relationships, Gang.
- The art team has snuck in plenty of special pictures and messages for fans.
- For the first time in a series the game will adjust its diffculty if the player becomes stuck. Rockstar assures that that the adjustments will be minimal and almost invisible to the players, so the missions won't become a breeze.
- At least once every couple of days your characer has to eat. If you skip meals he will be come weak, and if you feed him too much he gets slow and then gets fat. There is a wide selection of places to eat... so what you eat counts as well. Strength will effect his punches, but bulk up at the gym too much and he will loose speed...
- San Andreas has its own version of Hollywood called Vinewood.
- When the OGF fell from power, the new rival gangs The Flats and The Ballas moved in.
- Brian Johnson is CJ's 10 year old brother that died in an accident and the reason he went to Liberty City prison for five years.
- The Johnson family is in disarray as Carl and Kendl can't get along with Sweet.
- Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Polaski know CJ from when he was in juvenile hall, and now they harass him in SA.
- Cesar, a new Latino character wearing baggy slacks, an undershirt, tattoos, and a buzzcut has been confirmed.
- Old Reece is CJ's old barber that still gives him haircuts anytime he comes in.


New Screenshots Below:



Check the rest of the shots out on our San Andreas screenshots page.

wel who is going to keep 1 car long enough for it to get rusty. In 3 hours I would have changed cars about 40 times.

you know what will be really funny shit? A popped tire on a bicycle. Funny ass shit riding a bicycle with a flat tire. I don't know why it is funny, but it is funny. Especially if it is a fat black man like Carl riding a bike with a flat tire. I just laughed maybe 20 minutes thinking about that garbage. Well done.

Everything is nice but only one thing still confuses me- where are white people??? And I'm no rasist but I'ts weird to me that there isn't even one single pic. with white person in it and I repeat that I'm not rasist I'm only saying that the game would be weird if only black people would walk araud the streets and if no white person would be included in to storie. And if CJ had 10 years old brother would that mean that there are children in the game?

Kodo, isn't this like the second time you guys have mentioned CJ being in prison for the five years he was in Liberty City? Why is it still being said here? No where in the magazine does it say that he went to prison, please fix that.

He simply moved to get away from the gang life and probably from Frank and Eddie due to their harassing him.


PSM does say that he spent time in juvenile hall and that he first encountered Frank and Eddie during that time. Why was he in Juvie in the first place? (Yay! now it's my turn to speculate)

I'm betting that his time in juvenile hall (say he went in at 15 or 16) is something that also involved the death of his little brother. He got out, probably when he turned 18. Then after a few months of putting up with Frank and Eddie's harassment and tiring of the gang life he moved to Liberty City and didn't come back for five years. He of course returns because of his mother's death, his brother still blames him for the death of their little brother and probably for abandoning the "family". By family of course I mean, his actual family and also his gang.
