San Fierro: The Details Emerge

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 03:56 PM CST | By Neil
play Playstation, a German PS2 magazine, has confirmed many details about San Fierro, San Andreas' version of San Francisco. Readers of the eight-page article get their first glimpse into the layout of the city, with Chinatown taking a prime location in the center. While you're there, you'll find yourself playing a number of the game's alleged 150 missions, working for people like Wu Zi Mu, a blind Triad leader. One such mission involves attending "Hushbury & Garcia Joint Festival", where you'll see a lot of hippies. One screenshot shows this festival, with CJ standing alongside a vehicle which bears a resemblance to a Volkswagen Bus. Another depicts CJ on a boat with two motors at the rear, underneath the huge Gant Bridge (San Fierro's Golden Gate). A different sports car, which looks like a cross between a Ford GT40 and Dodge Viper, with its red body and white racing stripes is
shown, with a caption suggesting CJ will be able to steal the trams (or 'Trolley Carts'). Suggestions are also made to the rumoured car customisation feature. Apparently, CJ will be able to drop into various garages (like 'Pay and Spray') and change the colour of the car, and purchase upgrades like spoilers and nitro boosts. Pressing a button will activate the speed burst, which starts a blurry effect, similar to that seen in games like Burnout and Need for Speed Underground.

You can view a low quality digital camera shot of the magazine here. (Thanks to GameFront).

This hasn't been officially confirmed by Gamefront nor Rockstar, so don't take it as official until later this week, when we'll have scans.

this better be real, all of the shots in the pic look real, but the red sportscar kinda looks like it is from another game, we need scans, not digital pictures

Before anyones asks -- I posted it late because I was contemplating it's authenticity. I decided to post it after I noticed most other sites had it online.

#8, it's already confirmed the mag's out for release, and their official site shows a preview of the mag.

but remember, mags can also draw their own pictures and modify them for fun ;)

so don't be surprised if this info is fake. though it sounds good, cept for the digipad talkin to people thing and the nitro thing

Is it me, or does it look fake? i have a good point for this :

Tthe red car was on the cover of Play Playstation magazine #2 2004 issue, but then mirrored and as Gran Turismo 4 : http://www.playplaystation.com/img/titel/04/2s.jpg

Why does the Gamefront Sign at the top of the page go across the middle of the two pages? Looks fishy...

adidas, they do that so they get part of their name on the new screens, as you can see its also on the bottom left screeny and not the bottom right(because that screen isn't new)

That fact about modifying a car with spoilers and nitrous sounds like bull to me. It would be cool if it were true, but I think it may be too good to be true.

"Some of the cars have body upgrades, they're the more sporty cars like you'd see in Need For Speed: Underground, other cars, like the Manana, a car not embraced by street race culture, does not have body upgrades such as skirts and hoods and the like, however you can still add nitrous, and other components Rockstar wouldn't go into."
