There currently seems to be a sale on the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas remaster released today for Xbox 360. The announcement said the game would be sold for $14.99 On Demand in the Marketplace, but the North American marketplace on the console, website, and mobile site all are selling the game for $3.74. I've had success on the mobile site, and I don't know if the price shows on other marketplaces around the world. I've just head the USA and Canada. The price has been this low for an hour before this post.

Edit: It may just be an anniversary sale, as this source says the UK price is £2.99.

I just bought it on the console and know others in the XBL thread did too.  I'm not in any hurry to revisit the game since I can't imagine it held up well (even with a bit of touch up) but for that price with added achievements, why not.

I can confirm this price shows up on the Xbox Live Marketplace on console. I'm downloading now. So excited! :3

It's probably just a sale, really. It is the 10 year anniversary after all

Also hear it's just a port of the mobile version

Just turned on my Xbox 360 and saw that price on the Marketplace. Bought it for under $4, thanks OP!

Has anyone played it yet?  I already have it on pc, so I'm wondering how the xbox 360 version stacks up and if it has any changes.

Oh the joys I've had in that game. Anyone remember going to the airport at the start of the game, and climbing on a truck to jump the fence? How about after you found the "elevator" that takes you to the parachute, then you tried to get into other buildings?

Tried buying it from the marketplace webpage, but it won't let me use my credit in my Xbox account. I have $150+ currently, this is disappointing.

Is this the new they've been taking about? Or am I wrong?

Thanks, I was going to wait until it went on sale but I guess this was earlier than I expected.

Thanks OP!  I was planning on getting it for $15 - so this is a no brainer.

Based on XBL credit being on sale more often than PSN credit this is like it being $3 on PSN

This solves my debate as to whether I'd pay $15 or wait for a sale. Thanks OP.

For anyone that has played it yet, are the graphics truly a step up from the xbox version? With GTA V coming out next month, there's no reason for me atleast to have 2 GTA titles.

I was really hoping for this on PS3. I'd much rather have trophies over achievements. I haven't downloaded a game on 360 since Geometry Wars, but I can't pass up San Andreas, especially for this price.

 

How is it, graphically?
