Info I've heard so far:

- not available on Xbox

- eating is a requirement to maintain health, not just to get it back like in GTA: Vice City

- character needs constant exercise to stay in shape

Can I still use the max weapons cheat and play sniper on top of a building?

My preference is to use the flying cars cheat plus the tank cheat and just fly around in the tank laying waste to everyone and everything.

It's fun not to have to land if you don't want to.  Big thumbs up

I'm a fan of the tank cheat and the nutter weapons on Vice City. Nothing like taking out the police choppers with a Gatling gun. This game alone almost makes me wish I had a PS2 instead of an XBox; I have GTAVC on my PC.

Im sort of 50/50 on it. I mean, after like a few hours, that game gets SO repetitious. Don;t you guys find that it gets somewhat boring?

You need to workout to increase size, the bigger you are the slower you are. Eat daily, if not you will become weak and slow.

I dunno, I saw a commercial for it on TV and the graphics look hideous if you ask me. I think they could have done a lot better, so I'm really confused as to why they look so bad.

Tbar- alot of the time, the graphics look crummy on preveiws but are stunning when actually played. I'm 100% sure SA will be better than VC in terms of graphics.

Speaking of graphics, a friend of mine (who also has an Xbox) said that GTA:Vice City has much better graphics when using Monster cables instead of normal ones. Will GTA:San Andreas be the same, I wonder? Will it even matter, since it won't be released for the Xbox?

Ja. Its coming out on PS2 first. PC release isn't for about another 10 months.

£29.99 on PS2 at Argos, probably one of the cheapest places you can get it in the UK, I see a mad demand for that game this year!

Actually the cheapest prices are always at www.simplygames.com (for UK residents only). With that and Halo 2 out soon, it's going to be a great few weeks!

EGGD- are you kidding? Halo 2 is the most anticipated game of the year. San Andreas is just adding to the legacy of GTA.

VC on GTA3 was most likely THE most waited for/anticipated game of all time. Rockstar has hit a goldmine with those games. Half Life 2? Come on now son.

No way is Halo 2 the most anticipated game of the year. Half Life 2 has been waiting for release for 2 years now (since the original clips came out) and I've never seen so many discussions about it over the internet. However, Valve have kept very hush about it and therefore it has had very little PR coverage. By comparison, GTA:SA has received loads and seems to me to have been way overhyped, its nothing revolutionary and I'm hoping its not going to be like Vice City (rehash of an older game with same graphics and very little improvement, just an inferior environment).

Halo 1 was one of the most successful and popular games ever made. I personally don't like it, but everyone else does.

SA: Has receieved alot of covereage, but it such a complex game that the coverage is hardly going to ruin any surprise. SA has so many more side games within the general game. No game will be able to touch it. Racing, drug deals, killing people. Ah its amazing.

Halo 2 is IMHO the biggest game of the year. Just because the 1st game was so breathtaking - Microsoft sold a ton of Xboxes on the strength of that game alone (heck, that's why I bought mine - I went into GAME, saw Halo running and 20 minutes later was walking out with an Xbox and Halo - the game is THAT good!).
