Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories For PSP Spotted

The PSP can't really handle the all-encompassing worlds of Grand Theft Auto that appear on the PS2, but they do get the "Stories." You know, handheld versions of the popular console GTAs, like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

This being the case, wouldn't it stand to reason that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories would eventually come to the PSP? Well, we've got the first visual evidence of just such an occurrence, as QJ.net reader Xeinix has stumbled across a HMV listing for the game, and it has PSP fans all excited. Anything GTA sells relatively well on any platform, so something like San Andreas Stories could really help to boost PSP sales. Furthermore, if our weekly poll is any indication, it seems as if the PS2 iteration is a big favorite - perhaps it has something to do with flying planes and jetpacks? - so let's relive all that in a slightly smaller world! We'll await official confirmation from the publisher on this issue, but we're going to label this rumor as 99% plausible. There's really no reason why they shouldn't come out with this game, and the timing seems to be about right. We won't have another next-gen GTA for a while yet, so the fans are gonna need something to keep their attention, right?

We'll let you know if and when Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories for the PSP is confirmed, or if we come across any additional evidence.

And Patapon. And Loco Roco. And Crisis Core. And FF: Dissida. And a number of decent RPGs.

The PSP not having games is another old argument, similar to the PS3, that I would like to see die.

As for the DS, most of its games are shovelware, much like most Wii games.

no YOU got it mixed up. The psp is a mini genesis, ps1, game boy advance, nes, snes among many other things, since it has the ability to play games from all those systems

i considered it more of a portable ps2/gamecube. it does use the same disc as a gamecube?

San Andreas doesn't need another story. The original wasn't very hot to begin with.

I should pop San Andreas into my PS3 and see if the software emulation can hack it.

Oh yeah! gta is the reason why I purchased a PSP back when it was released. So I could take gta anywhere - hell I played LCS for a couple of months after it's release until my PSP 1000 was stolen but now I have a 2000 and I'm jus' waiting for a 4000 model or SAS to come out, or which ever comes first.

Yo mustang, my Psp got stolen to...and to add insult to injury, it was during my aunt's wedding. I had 3 Umd movies and 4 games all convieniently placed in my carrying case along with the psp itself. I left the PSP in a back room nobody should have been in (in a church mind you) and when i came back an hour later, it was gone!!!

i hated Vice City Stories, all thoughs little bussiness's kept on getting in the way of the game. it was annoying, loved Liberty City Stories though. but to be honest i doubt i'd get GTA:SAs I've gone of the series now to be honest.

Totally agree, although I cannot wait for GTA SAS! Here's hoping it's nothing like VCS.

This was proven false within a couple of hours. Click the description they even say its not coming, but wishful thinking. Also been listed since 2007.

what intruiges me is that someone went to the effort of design the boxart, but just used thesame images on the original San Andreas box art... but it is weird that it appeared on the HMV sit eif anything.

I don't think this is true...because the images in the HMV cover are from the San Andreas cover...and the Stories images are usually different...it's my take on it anyway, believe what you want.
