You know how it is with ballbusting blockbuster games. Developers can't resist another slice or two of our cashtacular, and will re-release the damn things again and again and a-effing-gain. Because dollar dollar bills y'all, as Wyclef Jean once said.
How many different editions of Street Fighter II appeared? Too damn many, that's how many. We're all up to our scrotes in HD remasters and re-releases, and it's getting kinda crazy. I recently realized that I own four different versions of the original Resident Evil, and I felt some kind of way about that.
But that's just how it is. The classics never die. When the remake of Final Fantasy VII was announced at E3 this year, the laundry bill for all of those shat underpants must have been huge. Fans have been howling for that for about a decade now.
So this was no surprise really. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas hit PSN yesterday.
In the place of 2012's PS2 Classics edition, we have what appears to be the same re-release that hit Xbox 360 a while back. Which, y'know, is surely great news for… whoever it is that was still asking for this. Still, Trophy support is probably enough to get a lot of PlayStation players back on board with the game, depending on the price point.
Can you be tempted into CJ's world again?
