Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now available for download in the App Store, after being announced back in late November. First introduced back in 2004 for the PlayStation 2, GTA: San Andreas was the third 3-D game in the series.

The game includes remastered graphics with enhanced shadows, a larger draw distance, and a richer color palette, along with enhanced character and car models.

Nope. 5 years was pure optimism by the way. Just played some SA for 20 mins. It look alright but still lags occasionally. So yeah we're probably 10+ years away from a game as complex as GTA IV on a mobile device, frankly.
10+ years away? You clearly aren't a computer science major... Just use Moore's Law and look at it. We will probably get to GTA 5 graphics in 10 years.

I actually am and I was very involved in modding the RAGE engine back in the day. You're a bit optimistic/deluded if you think a tablet will run a game as endlessly complex as GTA V by the end of the decade. It's a 38GB install by itself and barely runs on a PS3. Keep dreaming.

RAGE isn't as simple as you think, and GTA IV/V is RAGE overdosed on steroids. You have no idea what you're on about.

It's funny saying that I'm deluded when all you have to do is look up that companies like Nvidia are releasing mobile devices with GPU's that are almost 2 times MORE POWERFUL than the ps3... NEXT YEAR. And you think in 10 years we won't be able to run current console games?

If a company will now release a Bluetooth controller my setup will be complete. I just bought my iPad Air but still want to maximize all of the screen.
