    GTA: San Andreas (1200 MS points) is available for download today via XBL. I'm sure at this point, most people that had any interest in playing this game have already played it. However, the Xbox version is graphically light years ahead of the dark and muddy PS2 version (even playing it on the PS3 can't help this thing). The downloadable 720p version of GTA:SA could very well pass for an early 360 game if it wasn't for the bland textures. It's crisp looking and surpasses the PC version from a few years ago IMO.

    I would think this downloadable version has a pretty limited audience. Especially considering all the must-have games dropping right now. Even so, it's nice to have the definitive version of this game available to play right from the 360 dashboard.

    At one point I had the PS2 and Xbox versions but ended up selling the Xbox version on ebay. My rationale at the time was even though the Xbox version looked better, I had 60+ hours of progress on my PS2 save file vs. 5 hours or so on the Xbox. Now that I have this new version, I can't wait to start a new game. If I can even fit it in, that is. Too many good games, too little time.

    It's an "Xbox Original" or whatever, right? And they don't offer achievements, right?

    I agree with what you've said (I beat GTA: SA on my PS2 back in the day), although I'd be tempted to pick it up *if* it offered me Achievements. I *loved* SA - so much so that at first I was down on GTA IV. By the time I beat IV, though, I came to love it equally I figure, maybe a little more.
