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.
