San Andreas PC - On Sale Now (well, almost)!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:36 PM MDT | By Neil
It appears that several retailers across the US have broken the street date for GTA: San Andreas' PC version, with screenshots from the game and photographs of the boxart and disc appearing online earlier today. It should be noted that these images were sourced from people who legitimately purchased the game. The only people 'in the wrong' were the retailers for breaking the street date.
First up, a look at the physical aspects of the game.

These photographs clearly show the game's DVD disc, a page from the new darker manual and some sort of cardboard box. This box probably won't be the exterior, there are no screenshots on it. My guess is that the game will be packaged in the fold out fashion as seen in Vice City's PC version. Next, the five screenshots which have appeared online.

These screenshots were resized to allow those using lower resolutions to view them in full on screen. It won't be long until everyone can play the game. Hang tight and check back often for all the latest updates from those lucky enough to have the game already!

the first picture looks like the "novella" as apposed to the box, especially the bottom which says "This ____________ recommended by the San Andreas Travel Board"

nice pics, I really like reading that portrait of san andreas, it really feels like you are about to go on a tour guide on vacation, so much fun. Im kinda disappointed with that Tenpenny f***er artwork on the disc, I would rather have that hot blonde chick like the ps2 version

I definitely agree [sanandreashalo] why da fauck did they have to put tenpenny's ass on the disc art? Should have put the grafitti girl on the disc art instead of his shnit

yeah they'd look a lot nicer with aa an af on :O
which is what i'll be playing with on a bfg 6800 ultra muahahaha :D

oh and by the way if you are somebody who sets their resolution to 1280x1024 like our friend navomicron who got the game early, i'm here to tell you that is WRONG , the correct resolution you want is 1280x960, i know it got me at first too because 1024 sounds right but lets see why it isnt.

lets look at our old friend 1024x768, it's the aspect ratio os 4:3 which is what most our monitors are and tvs. the aspect ratio of 1280x1024 is 5:4, this isn't what we want, the aspect ratio of 1280x960 is 4:3 , as is the lovely 1600x1200.

anyway a 74 page book! i'm buying this mofo

I know You all problaly want this game NOW (I want it too), but don't worry You will have it quite surely TOMMOROW. And for me it's even more terrible. While the game come outs at the early morning in USA then I will have to wait seven hours after morning. I try to have a long, long sleep :P
