Isn't the PS2 exlusivity a part of a deal that Take Two inked with Sony? I would assume they'd put the game out as soon as that deal allows them to put it on other platforms.

The exclusivity contract ends on december 31 2004. Any games released before that date are subject to the terms of the contract (1 year of exclusive release on the PS2) However I don't think this contract stretches to cover PC's or Handhelds.

Mark your calenders to the first tuesday after 10/26/05. Thats when you X-box owners can play this game.

Thanks for all the info guys. I can't believe I got to wait that long to get san andreas for the box. Guess I'll have to go to that other thread and see how cheaply I can get a ps2.

The tractor is my new fav vehicle. I love towing other cars (and 18 wheelers too!) to their deaths. (press down on the right stick to engage the tow, press up to let it go free)

Did anyone else buy the Brady manual? 272 pages! Geez.

I played it for about an hour the other night. The city seems a very big. I did the first couple of missions. Now you have to eat?! Enough to keep your energy up but not too much or you'll get fat?!?! This game is absurdly deep, and I'm loving the BMX bike and the swimming (!).

I don't imagine myself EVER getting to 100% on this.

I know everyone who has this game is too busy playing it but I am surprised there isn't a proper review up yet. As you can see I am also too busy playing to give it a deep review. But I am having a hard time learning my way around the city. As such I am stuck on the fourth mission. There are just too many asses to kick around the city to actually play the missons. My favorite weapon of choice has to be the can of spray paint. I mean damn, what a horrible way to die. Your a hardcore gangsta yet you get killed by being spray painted to death. I love this game.

Alright, I'm way low on 'chedder' here. What do I need to do to loot houses? I've taken box trucks, parked at houses, but I think I am missing something. Can anyone lend a broke assed rookie OG a tip or two?

How could someone POSSIBLY review the game when there is SO MUCH to it? It seems an impossible task to me.

Is the fourth mission the one where you go beat up the crack dealers? I was trying to find a gun after three or four times failing that because I kept getting beat down by the first guy, but I ended up getting in a fender-bender, and the guy I hit had a shovel, so that go me through the first dealer without taking any damage. AND I jacked one of the police motorcycles and drove around a while looking for an Ammunation, which was cool.

The spray paint always reminds me of Tony Schiavone and his "that coffee is HOT" call on one of those Nitros way back when. "That paint is TOXIC!"

Have you done the mission where you

, cause it won't work until then. And even then, you need that particular type of truck. Then it's just a matter of hittting R3 after the sun goes down.

Inside Track Betting is by FAR the best way to earn money fast. Play the horses, bet smart, bet often, and you'll have more money than you'll ever spend.

If you can build up a few thousands as a starting base (Ambulance missions being an excellent low-risk way to build that up), hitting longshots will have you multiplying that in no time. I'm at 2.7 million myself and could take it much farther than that.

Yup, I did the mission in question. I just don't remember if I'm looking for a Boxton or a Mule.

Off track betting sounds like fun, I wasn't even aware that it was in the game.

I find myself using my ammo much more wisely as I'm still getting my one gun from that crazy dude or by killing other gang members.

I'm nowhere in this game so far and I'm amazed by the stuff I find everytime I play. This could take a year to get through. Which is of course a very good thing.

I wish the off-track betting allowed exactas, trifectas, etc.. It's jut bet on a horse and see if it wins. I guess it might be too complicated to put that in, but I would love it it a 2 dollar bet would get me a grand, like in real life.

I think my first tip for you is that you can't be a rookie and an OG at the same time.

Mini-Spoiler AHOY!


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Just about the coolest little bit of continuity I have seen in this GTA world happened in one mission. Basically at one point you are doing missions with Catalina (hard nosed man-hating woman who loves stealing money), and the final mission is racing three other cars in a race. She shows up before the race with "her new boyfriend," a guy who looks kinda familiar.

So after you win the mission, she comes back and finishes off the cutscene by saying that her boyfriend is leaving to go to Liberty City.

Then suddenly it clicks for me. This is the main character of GTA III. Now I'm excited to see if I run into Tommy Vercetti later in the game. It would be fun.

Boy, do I not know how to play the ponies. I've lost a ton of money (for a broke ass rookie OG, that is) at the track betting on the wrong horses. I've tried picking the same color over and over, the ones with the best odds, the ones with the lowest odds and I lose lose lose. Now I have a gambling addiction to boot.

This is a GTA game - are you supposed to try to get to the track and shoot the other horses?

I just spent an hour or so getting CJ to look just like Mr. T. You can get the haircut, buy some camo, and then go buy some bling. Now if only they had a two-tone black/gray van with a red stripe and spoiler. A black Rhino will have to do, I guess.
