Release Date for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PSN
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas represents the culmination of the GTA trilogy on PlayStation 2, a game released at the height of the series’ popularity during the last generation. It’s the best-selling game of all-time on the PS2, and has sold 27.5 million copies on all platforms, according to Kotaku.
And now, thanks to the PlayStation Blog, we know when Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be coming to the PlayStation Network in the form of a PS2 Classic. The ESRB rated San Andreas for release on the PS2 back in October, so we knew it was en route at some point. Today, we learned that the release date is mere days away.
The PS2 Classic version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be available on the North American PlayStation Store this Tuesday, December 11th. No price point is mentioned, though it’s safe to assume that it will cost $9.99, like all other PS2 Classics on the PlayStation Network. There’s no word yet on if and when it will be released in other territories.
Grand Theft Auto III is already available on the North American PlayStation Network as a PS2 Classic. Strangely, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was rated by the ESRB for release on the PS2 back in January, but hasn’t yet been released on the PSN.
