Happy 10th Birthday San Andreas!
The San Andreas re-release we reported on the other day is out now on the Xbox Marketplace, featuring 720p resolution, increased draw distance, and achievements. The game costs £2.99 / $ 3.74 / €3,74. This remastered version is not compatible with the older Xbox Originals version, so if you own that one then unfortunately your save games won't transfer across. Look on the bright side though, you'll get to play through this great game again!
Today marks the game's 10th anniversary since it was originally released on the PS2 back in 2004. Why not fire it up on whatever platform you may own a copy of the game on for some nostalgia?
In related news, the iOS version of San Andreas was updated yesterday with native support added for the new iPhone 6 and 6+ screen sizes.
As part of the celebration of San Andreas' 10th anniversary, Rockstar have removed the Xbox Originals version of the game from sale in the Xbox Marketplace, and will be re-releasing it as part of Xbox 360's Games on Demand service. This re-release will feature 720p resolution, enhanced draw distance and support for achievements. As of yet there is no word on pricing, but we'll update this as soon as we hear anything.
Rockstar have confirmed a list of achievements that will be available on their support page. In addition to those mentioned there will also be 11 hidden achievements, if you want to know what those are you'll have to wait, as even XboxAchievements.com does not yet seem to know what they are.
NOTE: Customers who had already bought the Xbox Originals version will still have access to that. But if they decide to upgrade to the re-release on Games on Demand, their save games will not be compatible.
Meanwhile, Rockstar are offering 40% off on the mobile version of San Andreas, as well as Vice City and GTA III. If you don't already own any of them, check out the links below:

Rockstar have today released yet another free update for GTA Online, which celebrated its 1st anniversary yesterday. The Last Team Standing update adds 10 Last Team Standing jobs and also opens up the LTS creator mode allowing you to make your own. Other additions include new high powered weaponry featuring a Heavy Shotgun and Marksman Rifle, and three new vehicles; two motorcycles and the Furore GT. Finally, there's also some new outfits and stuff to equip your character with. As with other recent title updates, patch 1.17 also fixes a ton of issues.

Marking GTA V's first anniversary this 17th of September, Rockstar have released a ton of official artworks as wallpapers, 27 to be exact. Many date back a good few months from when they were first used as promotional artwork for the free DLCs that have been released, while others show characters from the game's supporting cast.
There's also one brand new piece of artwork featuring Michael, Franklin and Trevor, and an one of the Hollywood starlet recently used by Rockstar to announce the release dates of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of GTA V.
Check out these and the 25 other high resolution wallpapers on our GTA V Artwork page, where you'll also find links to download from Rockstar's site in many different resolutions for whatever device you might want them for.
As promised with the release of new information and screenshots about the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V posted by Rockstar earlier, a new trailer has been uploaded to show off the game. Watch "A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip" below.
Rockstar promise there's more details coming in the weeks ahead.
