Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK: Issue 50

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 06:22 AM MDT | By Neil
The latest issue of Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK has just been published, and it includes a 3-and-a-half page feature about Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. A little more information is divulged about the countryside, with place names like "The Back O' Beyond", "Shady Creek" and "Flint County" all coming up. It is also suggested that to cycle from Los Santos to "The Back O' Beyond" would take around 40 minutes, showing the sheer scale of the game. One new screenshot is included, and you can see it below:



Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK is now available from newsagents, priced 5.99.

40 minutes to get somewhere in the game? I like the fact that SA is going to be big, but don't you think that's a little obnoxious that it will take you that long to get to an area? Just my 2 cents.

Is that all the new info, just the 40 minute thing?

Pretty sweet either way, it just means that the replay value will be tremendous. Remember that PS3 won't be out for a couple of years. And this is the last GTA for a while.

Like I've been saying.... I think that when they mean San Andreas is four to six times the size of Vice City, they don't just mean four to six Vice Cities put together...

Anyone know if there is a scan or write-up of this newest OPSM2 mag yet? It's a little hard to come by in the US without a subscription, ya know?

With all of the room to run in this game the police chases could go on for bloody ever. I love it. Get a white Bronco and go OJ on them all. Ha!

In response to #12, the screenshots, specifically the Las Venturra one, has been proven fake by snuggles03, because he said... here's the original picture

And a Big Mutha Truckers review including the same picture
http://www.sk.co.yu/2003/06/siop16.html

For anyone wondering if they were real or not.

That mag didn't have any gruesome throat-slashings during a house-robbery, right? :)

About the 40-minute thing, aren't there places in the game that are farther from Los Santos than "Back O' Beyond?" That's a long time. But I think it is greatly exaggerated. I think that time would be cut significantly if you're using the freeway system and you know the shortest way to get there. It shouldn't take much time at all if you're using a dodo or a chopper or even a flying tank. :)

they did say it takes 40 minuits on a Bike, a Pedle Bike that is.

So it will be shorter with a car or plane ect.

But still 40 minuits on a Bike, and i dont think its just because the Bike is slow because think how slow it would have to be to take 4o minuits... Very slow.

I hope the PS2 can handle this game. In the previous highlighted articles on this website, it said that the game sort of lagged when they gave a preview of it. I sure hope we don't have to go out and buy a hard drive either.
