Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Now Available for Download on PSN - Watch "The Introduction"

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now available to download from the PlayStation Store. The game is currently available at the PSN Store in North America and it will also become available later today, Wednesday December 12 th, when Sony updates the PSN Store in Europe.

To help prepare you to go back-back to SA, what better to watch than "The Introduction" - the original 20-minute prologue video that highlights the action in the days before the story in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas begins. The Introduction is told from various characters' viewpoints, which are intertwined together to reveal the network of organized crime forces operating throughout the state of San Andreas. Tension builds as threats are carried out, stakes are raised and communication breaks down. In Los Santos, a drive-by shooting in Grove Street Family's territory ignites a series of events to be further explored in the game.

And quite timely in the midst of our Vice City Anniversary celebrations, "The Introduction" also helps provide some insight into characters like Ken Rosenberg and Kent Paul who made the trip from Vice's sunny beaches in pursuit of fortune and fame in Los Santos in 1992. You can find an embed link for "The Introduction" below or as a new entry added to our Videos section at

Xbox 360 players can also get San Andreas from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
