San Andreas Logo

Rockstar Games has finally brought Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to Windows Phone 8 devices.  Currently, the game is only supported on the following Nokia Lumia devices: 1520, 1320, 822, 820, 810 and HTC’s 8XT.  Consumer reviews on the game indicate that it is running fine on the Lumia 920 and 928 devices.  The game is available on the Windows Store for $6.99.

While it’s great that Rockstar is supporting Windows Phone, it is a bit disappointing to note that this release of San Andreas doesn’t take advantage of Windows Phone’s Xbox support.  Yep, no Achievement support for GTA on your Windows Phone.
