Xbox San Andreas Confirmed, PSP Version Rumoured.

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 03:32 PM MDT | By Neil
It's official, the time has come to cease sending us those feedback submissions enquiring whether San Andreas will be released on Xbox. In a press release issued today, Take 2 Games confirmed that an Xbox version of GTA: San Andreas is on the cards, and unveiled the release dates for Europe and North America.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the Xbox® and PC will be in stores in North America on June 7th, 2005 and in Europe on June 10th, 2005.


In a near simultaneous press release, Take 2 revealed its plans for 2005 alongside financial results for Q4, 2004. However, most interestingly is a statement referring to Sony's forthcoming Playstation Portable Console, which is already "available" in Japan.
Additional products planned for fiscal 2005 from Rockstar include a new console title based on a proven brand from Rockstar's internal studios, titles based on two of Rockstar's premier brands for Sony's highly anticipated PlayStation®Portable platform (PSP™) and the release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in Japan.


Could this be confirmation of a PSP version of Grand Theft Auto? We can only wait and see, but one thing's certain, Xbox owners can join in the fun starting in June 2005.

This is great news. The game's going to be available on more systems, meaning it's available to more people. I don't support console wars at all.

I'm just getting the PC version. Still good news though. More money for R*!

I don't think either will have online. And if one does, it will be the PC.

Wow gayness, they have games like halo and halo 2. Those games are great, why don't they just play those. They shouldn't get any GTA, isn't rockstar rich enough??? Also, all those Xbox freaks are going to start talkin crap about how its better on Xbox. Maybe better graphics, the controls will suck. *sigh* .......no point to it. the only good thing that might.....might come out of it would be some Xbox stunt vids besides that.....not cool just not cool.

ugh, while I would usually not care...this is where I make an exception...

I mean, all the Xboxers say GTA: SA sucks, that Halo 2 is better...now you know the minute they get this they will bel ike "SA ROCKS! WE GOT THE BETTER VERSION BECAUSE IT HAS SLIGHTLY BETTER GRAPHICS AND WE CAN DOWNLOAD OUR MUSIC INTO IT!1111!!!"

and totally forget that they said it sucks...

but yeah, besides that, its good...more people play, more money for Rockstar...

And a PSP GTA would certainly get me to buy the PSP...

I think they mean SanAndreas on the PS2 for Japan, as it is obviously yet to be released.

I wouldn't play gta sa on xbox cause the controller is retarded, and the xbox controller looks like it was made by a blind 10 yr old, as for the pc version, i dunno how people can play games on the pc, it's shit for games and just doesn't feel right, but at least the gta mod geeks can boost their little egos when they starting modding sa on the pc version

I doubt a PSP version of SA will appear. Why? Because as people can tell (by the noise the PS2 makes when playing) the disc is constantly being scanned, as this is the way to make the size of San Andreas the way it is. Putting this on a portable unit won't be the brightest choice, since the battery will only last a short time by the constant running of the drive. But who knows, maybe they'll figure something out....

They didn't say it'd be SA, they said it'd be based on one of their franchises, GTA being one of them. Concequently they'll come out with a game that is based on GTA (I mean, what other game could they be talking about) as they did with the GBA GTA game recently. Clearly PSP isn't powerful enough to run somthing has complex as GTA3, VC or SA.

They could easily make GTA3 for the PSP. Just look at games like Gran Turismo 4 mobile. The game looks amazing on the PSP. It would just take some tweaks to the engine. Ig the game ran on the SA engine but with GTA3 or less graphics, it would be possible.

I can say now, it will not be San Andreas on the PSP.. They just can't fit the stuff on the small discs.. From memory, the UTD discs (not sure if I used the correct name there), are only 1.3~6GB

You know it is possible for a GTA on a PSP... I mean if you compress GTA III with the latest compression technoligies, you can definitly put THAT on a tiny UMD for a PSP... So it is very possible with all the latest and greatest technoligies we have today.

i hope it has more flexible settings above all video settins since vice city didnt support that. and i would want they include a vibration input device. i have gamepad like the ps2 controller and i'd want to use that feature.

I don't get what offends you all so much with the fact that San Andreas is coming to Xbox. You shouldn't even care, they're just consoles.
