Quote:
Summary:

Recently, Dan Houser, Producer Co-Founder RockStar North, declared for the Italian Official Playstation2 Magazine that GTA: San Andreas will take at least 150 hours of gameplay in order to complete the title (Thanks TotalVideoGames). Stay tuned for more news!





Full Story:

Rockstar Games Announces Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

NEW YORK - March 1, 2004 - Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing division of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO - News), is pleased to announce Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the next iteration in the globally successful Grand Theft Auto franchise. Developed by world-class designers Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and is expected to be in stores in North America on October 19, 2004 and in Europe on October 22, 2004.

"In the past couple of years, we have put an enormous amount of pressure on ourselves to ensure we do everything possible to exceed people's expectations with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," stated Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games. "Even though we still have eight months to go, we are starting to become very proud of what we have achieved and we can't wait to get the game into players' hands."

Leslie Benzies, President of Rockstar North, stated, "We are extremely humbled by the success of the Grand Theft Auto series and it has made us push ourselves further than ever to create a title in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that will hopefully redefine the Grand Theft Auto series and revolutionize open-ended gameplay and video game production values."

Over 30 million units of the Grand Theft Auto franchise have been shipped to date, including over 11.5 million units of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and over 10.5 million units of Grand Theft Auto 3.

From what I've read most recently, San Andreas will include 3 cities (each as big as Vice City), analagous to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, including the distance between them.

I was feeling kind of ho-hum about it until I read that.

Those screen pics looked pretty nice. And vice city is actually one of the better games I have ever purchased. I can't wait until the new one comes out.

Heres some new stuff..



Basketball game.. Look at those graphics, Wow!

http://ps2.ign.com/articles/538/538541p1.html

You can get a haircut now..
But more interesting, You can get new clothes (like in GTA:VC), but they have their own effects.. Like if you wear gang colors around that gang, they'll help you out, while rival gangs will go after you.

Little stuff like this, Swimming (Although thats gonna be a bitch to find hidden packages now), and the other little additions rockstar adds just make these games awesome.. I can imagine a few more hundred hours going into this game.

Not sure - They went after you for just wearing the stuff in the game?
I thought it was just while on the missions against them?

I don't believe it. I bet you will have to pay for a plane ride or drive a few minutes on the highway until you are magically teleported to the other big city.

In the pictures, it looked like they put a little 'transition' space between the cities, like a mountain road.. Probably just about the distance from one city to another in GTA3..

EDIT: New pictures of the san francisco area..

Omi, b'lie' DAT!

You can drive the entire state of "San Andreas" without loads, including the forests, deserts, etc. between the 3 major cities, AND various small towns scattered throughout. The entire square mileage of San Andreas is supposed to be FIVE times that of Vice City.

Other things you may not have known:

You can roll with your crew, and the whole fuckin' posse will bust out on a drive-by.

Food and exercise will effect your physical condition.

Your skill with specific weapons increases with use.

You will eventually have the opportunity to buy a working casino in the Vegas analogue.

Set in the early 90's, so jump to all the conclusions you like about soundtrack.

Since the game seems to feature mostly black street gangs, I hope we will not get too much rap.

So, when is it coming out?

The hatians go after you when you complete the cuban missions. But ur right, its mainly in the missions where they go after you for wearing a certain outfit.
