GTA San Andreas hitting major mobile platforms in December

GTA San Andreas hitting major mobile platforms in December
Rockstar has been in the zone with pushing out mobile versions of its Grand Theft Auto series as "10th Anniversary" editions. GTA III hit iOS 10 years after its original release in 2001, and GTA: Vice City came to mobile 10 years after its initial release in 2002. But, Rockstar is jumping the gun just a bit with GTA: San Andreas, which was first released in 2004.

Of course, this is all just good news for us, because it means we get the game a bit earlier. Rockstar has announced that GTA: San Andreas will be released next month, and the best news is that it will be coming to all three major mobile platforms: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Usually, Windows Phone either gets left out of the equation, or is at least forced to wait for a big release like this. 

Interestingly, it sounds like Rockstar is planning on taking advantage of the horsepower available in current mobile hardware, because it is promising that this will be "the best-looking version of San Andreas yet." The on-screen controls are going to be improved with new contextually-visible controls, and full support for controllers using iOS 7's controller support

Rockstar has set the release window for December, but no specific date has been given.

I can't wait for the era where smart phones are going to play Xbox one/ps4 console graphics. Thinking about it gives me goosebumps.

I hope its true FULL CONTROLLER support. Vice City on Android had various features stripped out of the game (such as the ability to change Radio stations, talk about a major oversight). I just cant see San Andreas even being playable without a controller.
