A gussied up, remastered version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas hit the Apple Store yesterday. It's playable on the following devices: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod Touch 5th gen, iPad 2, 3rd and 4th gen, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPad Mini with Retina Display. But, hey, who has a third generation iPhone, right? Not even poor people! Maybe micro bacteria and their dumb fingers don't work on touchscreens.
Priced at a reasonable $7, something tells me this could blow up, riding the wave of Grand Theft Auto fever loosed by GTAV. It's an intravenous nostalgia hit to many smart phone owners, I'm sure. Not that Rockstar needs anymore money.
Android and Windows Phone versions are dropping next week. Wow -- even Windows Phone!
Anyone biting? With native controller support (if you have one of those peripherals), this could be the best way to play San Andreas, given the updates.
