Rockstar have spent much of October celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the PlayStation 2.
The centrepiece of the celebration being the release of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas HD for the Xbox 360. This new version of San Andreas runs at a native 1280x720 resolution and includes achievements and various graphical improvements over the original console release. Several tracks have been removed from the in-game radio, presumably due to some licensing issue.
Rockstar recently ran a San Andreas beta, suggestion a PC update may be forthcoming. There is no word at present on a PlayStation update.
In addition to running San Andreas related competitions there was a San Andreas anniversary weekend event for Grand Theft Auto Online as well as an anniversary special update of San Andreas inspired player-made jobs.
While on the subject of Grand Theft Auto Online, on the weekend of October 3rd through 5th Rockstar held a Last Team Standing event where you could unlock an in-game hockey mask inspired by the “Please Stop Me” mask worn by the Smilies in Manhunt, by playing through the event play list.
Unfortunately I didn’t find out about it until after the event was by with and was unable to participate or share information regarding the event. Images of the mask can be seen on the Rockstar Newswire and in the Grand Theft Auto V thread on the forums. Congratulations to those that were able to take part! Hopefully Rockstar will run another event to unlock the mask in the future.
