I live in California and I reserved at Best Buy but the one near me wouldn't put it out on the 25th. However they would have put it out where I used to live. Those bastards. Then I went to GameCrazy and they wouldn't it sell it to me because I didn't reserve with them! They are bastards too, but I think I'll reserve with them next time since they put it out early. It was just sitting there, glowing in all its majestic glory. Seriously, my eyes welled up with tears. I envy you guys that already have it. I can't complain though, I'll get it the 26th and those poor fellows in Europe have to wait. To them I say, I share your pain....at least for another 14 hours. Have fun everybody!

For those of you who don't have it yet, all I can say is HOLY SHIT. This game is perfect in every way. All the things we worried would ruin the game infact help it out. Buy it as soon as you can! This blows VC out of the water! It actually made me feel like I had a life in SA and that I was really a gangsta. I love it.

well, being a broke college student (well, plenty of money in the bank for a game), I didn't want to waste my own money when its slightly possible I can get it for Xmas. I also don't have my PS2 with me at school, so theres no point in getting it, even with me going home on some weekends, cause then I won't be able to focus all week waiting for the weekend, if the game is really that good. I definately looks like it got the feel of GTA3 back. I hated that bright Vice City, didn't feel right and it felt like a cheap version of GTA3. Anyway, I asked for the game for Xmas, I doubt my parents will get it for me, but I'll wait and see if I get it, then I'll buy it when I most likely don't get the game. You all are a bunch of losers it seems, your life revolves around GTA. Because of that, you're going to flame me, but because of the first part you'll say "whats wrong with you man, go buy the game!!!1!!"

I live in Australia, I got to wait 2 more days for it to be released. This Friday I'm picking my copy up at my local games store, and let's just say "You will not see me for atleast 2 months after the Australian release date which is Friday, 29th October 2004". I can't freaking wait for this game.

I have pre-ordered it, so it should arrive Friday morning in the post!
£27.00 (from Play -10% voucher)
I have Friday off, so can play it all day long.....but I have to go to Blackpool for the weekend Friday afternoon, so my time playing for the first time, will be short lived!!!
but can't wait...i'm dead excited!

You know, everybody from europe, why don't you guys buy at a store who ships to outside of the U.S., it would take probably 1-2 days to get there, so why don't you guys stop complaining, geez, it's only 3 days, remember 5 months ago, well, now people are playing, 3 days from now you will be playing and won't even remember that you waited 3 days more than the americans, and 7-10 months from now i will be playing it too (assuming that i'm still alive) and it won't matter how much i waited, because the more you wait, the sweeter it will be.
Funny how seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks and months pass by so fast, i turned 20 years old in 10/02, now is 26, the time flew by so fast, now 3 more days to you guys are nothing.
Think like this, americans are are luckier than the europeans who are luckier than the PC owners who are luckier than the japanese who are luckier than the Xbox owners who are cursed, lol, now doesn't that make you feel better/happy?

Any brand new screens and videos would be great. Post post post.

Yes, all the other citys are locked until you finish all the missions on the first isaland, but if you do manage to get into the locked city E.G Dodo, you get 4 cop stars and they shoot your plane down

People around the world, from america to australia .... i have news that is just shocking .... everyone know's about the Q & A that R* provided to everyone. one question said that they started working on gta san andreas right after VC ... i have a proof that destroys that stupid comment from R* .

On the Main Menu of GTA III , there is alot of images on the people in that game. notice on the fat guys stomitch is the evedance that show's R* had already planed for san andreas from that time... We can clearly see on his belly the GTA SAN ANDREAS logo in the GTA SA font ... People please check it out and tell me if its true....

It was'nt me who figured it out , but it was one of my dear friends ... if anyone has gta 3 left with them ... plz check if its true....

CANT WAIT UNTILL SAN ANDREAS COMES OUT IN AUSTRALIA, I ORDERED THREE COPIES, INCASE ONE GETS SCRATCHED, SO I USE THE OTHER >> LOL

All of you who have the game are really lucky. I probably should be getting it by next week cause i live in Nicaragua and i have preordered from Amazon.com. I just imagine how great that game is and is really a nightmare not been able to get it faster so the only thinh i got left is to wait. It will be great to have stores here that have the game but i must said that if san andreas tends to be sold in Nicaragua it will cost like about $100. That's expensive for me. Good gaming all you guys i hope not to be the last one to finish the game.

"hey guys what about area 51 in las venturas is real?"

San Andreas is a mixture of California and desert regions of Nevada. Area 51 is in Roswell, New Mexico. Nothing to do with Las Vegas, therefore nothing to do with Las Venturras.

I've got about 4 hours playing time logged now. So far, I am very impressed with the quality of the voice and sounds in the game, as well as the depth of the missions (almost all of them have more than one single objective, they are more like "Go here, do this, then go here with so and so and do this, then take so and so here," as opposed to "go here and kill so and so" and you're done)

I have not unlocked the other parts of the island yet, as I'm having a little trouble with the fork-lift mission, but no big deal, there's still plenty to do until I get the strategy guide (or just get through it on my own!)

I really like the way you have to build up the various stats through eating, working out, driving and riding bikes. Really adds a lot of depth to the game (not that it's lacking in any way).

I also like the new Spray Tags instead of the hidden packages. It's a lot more "realistic".

More to come, happy gaming to all.
