XBL Content Roundup: October 26th, 2014

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
For those who are unaware, today marks the ten year anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on Playstation 2. Since then, the game has been released on many other platforms, including the Xbox Originals section of the Xbox LIVE Games Store. Earlier this month, that version of the title was removed and has now been replaced with a Games on Demand version, complete with achievements.

Although neither Rockstar nor Microsoft confirmed the price of the re-release, but it has been released today with a surprisingly low price point. Many people, like myself, believe this to be a sale price, although we have no idea for how long this price will remain. If it is anything like the current sale for the GTA Trilogy titles on mobile devices, the price could be as low as this until November 9th, although we really do recommend picking up the title as soon as possible. The title is not yet available in Australia or Germany -- we'll be sure to let you know if this changes.
