Considering Max Payne 3's mild success and the fact that it doesn't have a big holiday title out, Rockstar may not have had the most impressive year in 2012. However, next year's Grand Theft Auto V is certain to be a hit, and, in the meantime, the developer is pushing its older GTA titles out to platforms they have never been on before.
Just one week after Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was released for iOS and Android devices, Rockstar has released Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the PlayStation Network. It's available in North America today for $15, and will be available in Europe starting tomorrow for €15 or £12.
To celebrate the game's new release, Rockstar has re-released a video called "The Introduction." It's a 20-minute prologue that sets up the events and characters seen in the game. From that announcement:
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.
Sounds like it's time to kick back, enjoy some hot coffee, and relive one of the classic GTA games.
