Well, this was bound to happen eventually. Following the successful release of GTA3 and Vice City, Rockstar Games has announced a mobile port of San Andreas. Coming next month on "select" iOS, Android, Kindle, and Windows devices, the upcoming portable version of the game will include full controller support, including Made for iOS controller capability introduced in iOS 7.

Like previous releases, the mobile version of San Andreas will feature "newly remastered graphics," including dynamic shadows, greater draw distances, an "enriched" color palette, as well as enhanced character and car models. It will be the best-looking version of San Andreas, Rockstar claims--y'know, if you don't count Los Santos in GTA5.

      Awesome! If only the previous two games were playable on a touchscreen.

      I can't imagine the controls being anything but frustrating. Were the previous ports any fun?

      Holy shit. Yes please. If controls are an issue, I'm sure there will be a portable gamepad that would work just dandy.

      I can't get any of the classic GTAs to work in Windows 8 and yet they all have updated ports on my phone. Something is wrong with this picture...

        The game industry is sinking into a quagmire of mobile and F2P garbage.

          Dev's have to go there. Steam is a closed platform, and nobody wants to spend any decent money on a mobile game.

          Do they spend thousands of dollars on a PC game in the hope they get enough Greenlight votes, or just make a F2P game and make tons of cash? It's not difficult.

          But I mean shit like Unity makes porting easier, but no one bothers. All these updated iOS ports and yet my steam copies are still shitty and made for Windows XP. Take Peggle for example - the game is HD on my phone. On steam it's still the original tiny blurry mess.

        Playing gta iii on pc is a miserable experience. The resolution is fucked up, controls are a mess.. ugh. I wish they would make a nice windows 8 version that works with gamepads. They would easily sell dozens of copies.

          Out of all the GTA games on PC, I would say that III had the best controls, if only for the fact that you really didn't need axes to maneuver, as you only had cars and boats. When Vice City came out, you really needed a controller. And yeah, Logitech controllers actually work pretty well, except for aiming, which is way too sensitive to use a stick.

      Hey, here's a thought; VITA RELEASE. EH?

        That would rock. I've tried GTA3 and VC on my iPad but just couldn't get past the touch controls.

          Oddly enough, you know what Rockstar game works awesome with the iOS touch controls? Chinatown Wars. It actually takes advantage of the original DS release's touch minigames, has the graphics of the PSP release (possibly better, never made a direct comparison to check) and even has the entire soundtrack from the PSP version as well, with awesome audio quality. It's an amazing game, and it's real cheap, if memory serves.

        This is a bad idea for many reasons.

        Reason #1 - I will get fired from my job.

          Please tell me that's the only reason, and your many was just smoke and mirrors to detract from your inability to separate the GTA-ness from the jobby-jobb.

      This social network is a getaway from everyday life, family, job and even yourself. Bad side of Facebook is less visible and the [url=http://www.fifa14coinsale.co.uk/]FIFA ultimate Coin/url] not lot of people talk about it, but it takes huge space inside every human who uses it. Some strange feelings may be born while looking other people's Facebook page:Jealousy. Yes... exactly. People try to make other people jealous every day in hope they will appear more important and more valuable. Jealousy can make bad things happen, even to terminate friendships.Desire to compete. Of course, like in everyday life, people like to compete with each other. But, who will post better status or who will post better photo, reminds on children's game. Unconsciously, grown people become children.
