Rockstar Games is pleased to announce Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Special Edition for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, which will include on DVD "The Introduction" and Rockstar's debut documentary film, "Sunday Driver". Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Special Edition will be in stores on October 18, 2005.
Highlighting the action in the days before the story in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas begins, The Introduction is told from various characters' viewpoints, which are intertwined together to reveal the network of organized crime forces operating throughout the state of San Andreas. Tension builds as threats are carried out, stakes are raised and communication breaks down. In Los Santos, a drive-by shooting in Grove Street Family's territory ignites a series of events to be further explored in the game.
Sunday Driver is an all-access documentary film chronicling the Compton/Watts chapter of California's low rider car club, The Majestics. A cutting edge and uncompromising film, Sunday Driver is an evolution of the Rockstar brand into film. Directed by Carol Strong, the documentary offers an incredible portrait of a community working together to build the ultimate customized vehicles while struggling to legitimize their lifestyle under close scrutiny by the authorities. With an upfront look at the men behind the chrome, Sunday Driver explores the origins of the Majestics' car club and, by using first person interviews, explains what it means to be a Majestic. Dedicated to creating the definitive modified automobile, The Majestics come together to help each other realize their dreams. Sunday Driver will also be released separately on UMD, a format used by the PSP(TM) (PlayStation® Portable) system. For more information on Sunday Driver, including the official trailer, clips, stills and more, check out the official Sunday Driver website at www.rockstargames.com/sundaydriver.
The Special Edition is the complete Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas experience.

As the vast many of you are making your way through an epic adventure across Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas, and all points in between... The critical word streams in...
IGN.COM: "I'm not going to beat around the bush. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the single best PlayStation 2 title I have ever played... it has a production value that's second to none, boasts a faithfulness to '90s source material with an eerie accuracy... In short, it's a terrific unending masterpiece of a game -- and one that will never fall victim to an over-exaggeration of its lofty status. It's the defining piece of software for Sony's successful sophomore system, and it's almost impossible to imagine a PlayStation 2 library without it. San Andreas is... a world that can offer different people different things... Live the life you want to live; do the things you want to do, it's entirely up to you. But however you choose to do it, do it now. Drop everything and do it right now. This is the best PlayStation 2 game ever made. Period."
OFFICIAL PLAYSTATION MAGAZINE: "The term 'big' really doesn't do it justice. It's huge, massive, colossal, stupendous, and somewhat humbling in its enormity. No matter what expectations you've developed based on the information that has dribbled out over the course of the past six months, you are wrong. If you're expecting Vice City, only set in the 90's and with some RPG bits, you are wrong. If you believe that they can't possibly push it as much as they have before, that it can't really be that good, you are wrong... the truth is it's spectacular... The game promises just about everything and somehow manages to deliver even more than you expected."
CHIGAGO TRIBUNE: "San Andreas moves toward the next generation of consoles and the kinds of evolving human tales waiting to unfold."
TIME MAGAZINE: "An extraordinary experiment in interactive storytelling... San Andreas combines the richness of art with the freedom of real life to create something entirely new, totally unclassifiable and really, really cool."
NEWSDAY: "A masterpiece."
GAMESPY: "This is precisely the kind of experience that reminds why, exactly, we play games: to be liberated from the constraints of reality, and explore living, breathing worlds."
THE GUARDIAN (UK): "Elaborate, extravagant... a truly epic videogame... the ultimate digital playground."
BBC (UK): "...it builds and expands almost immeasurably upon the last two games... it is hard to envisage anything topping this barnstorming instant classic."
PSW (UK): "The most complete, enchanting, immense and rewarding experience ever seen in gaming... What's been done here is nothing short of magnificent... San Andreas truly redefines gaming for a new generation"
