PlayStation 3 users can now re-experience Rockstar's biggest GTA (until Grand Theft Auto V
comes out this spring) by downloading San Andreas from PSN under PS2 Classics for $14.99. File size is 4.2 GB. It is available in North America today and tomorrow internationally.
Rockstar has also added "The Introduction" to their website
which gives more background about the events in the game:
"The Introduction is told from various characters' viewpoints, which are intertwined together to reveal the network of organized crime forces operating throughout the state of San Andreas. Tension builds as threats are carried out, stakes are raised and communication breaks down. In Los Santos, a drive-by shooting in Grove Street Family's territory ignites a series of events to be further explored in the game.
And quite timely in the midst of our Vice City Anniversary celebrations, "The Introduction" also helps provide some insight into characters like Ken Rosenberg and Kent Paul who made the trip from Vice's sunny beaches in pursuit of fortune and fame in Los Santos in 1992."
Like the GTA III release this is not an enhanced version of the game and there are no extras - only the game as you remember it. If you don't remember it, you will after playing it.
Xbox 360 users are already able to play San Andreas from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace
