About a week ago we asked our visitors to submit their San Andreas questions. Today we have the answers. One of our own, Jordan from our partnersite PlanetGrandTheftAuto, was treated to an hour long 1-on-1 preview of the PC/Xbox version of San Andreas at E3 today. Besides being able to get past the security and into Rockstar's "booth" (which was more like a parking lot of pimped out buses), he was able to have a chat with a Rockstar representative who answered all our questions.

I recommend reading through Jordan's preview writeup for the full effect, summarising it here wouldn't do it any justice. Also have a look at the photos Jordan took at the convention.

Thanks for all the hard work Jordan, you've definately been an asset to the GTA community.
I've been keeping my eye on Planet GTA the last few days and it has been very informative reading through all of your coverage!

"19. Will Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas be the last PS2 game?

Yes, it was the last in the trilogy. No more GTA on the PS2."

WTF ???

I hope he means only on PS2.

A little disappointed that they didn't comment on any of the glaring issues in the PC version like the lack of mip-mapping and the frame limiter, which leads me to believe that it's same ol' same ol', particularly in light of the replay feature apparently being exactly the same as before. I have to believe that the "medium" pop-in detail level isn't really all that important.

Mipmapping is completely different from LOD scaling. Mipmapping controls how well textures fade into the background, LOD scaling is completely replacing both the models and textures into the background to ease the overall graphics load.
