Updated version of GTA: San Andreas hits Xbox 360 next week, 2007 me rejoices

This is a bit of a weird one. Some rumors from earlier in the week were confirmed when Rockstar announced yesterday that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would see a slightly updated re-release on Xbox Live October 26th, just in time for the game’s tenth anniversary. I say “slightly updated” because it really only seems to have bumped up the resolution to 720p, added achievements, and increased the draw distance.

The Xbox originals version of the game was removed from the marketplace to make way for the updated release but previous owners of the Originals version will still be able to download and play it. That said, they will need to purchase the new version if they want the added features.

There’s currently no word on the updated version of San Andreas hitting platforms other than the Xbox 360.

And… Wait… This just in. I’m getting word that Red Dead Redemption is rumored to finally be getting the hotly anticipated Wii version sometime later this year.
