    i think this should be news... gta san andreas just got updated on steam

    the update removed some of the best songs on the game, according to rumors, because licensing issues...

    people are all over complaining on steam forums about that.. some appeal they bought the game before the license issues and its illegal they get removed because people bought the game with them...

    i personally want to say, welcome to digital era, where you don't own anything and either you agree to be a slave of their decisions or you are forced to quit from using the service...

    GTA SA HD on the 360 received an update recently and it made jumping to the Pause Menu quicker whereas previously it took a while 'cause it was lag, due to this being a port of the mobile version.

    I'm really enjoying it especially with all the cheats and lol the game starts to break itself with the cheats activated. :P

    So if the songs were removed then they might've just disabled than physically extract but then again, I listen to my own custom soundtracks so I don't care.

    i can't find real "evidence" but steam foruns is full of people talking about it

    i launched the game and i confirm the songs are replaced\not longer there....

    they also removed the intros, you launch the game shows the logo then jumps to main screen, xinput support was updated (its working fine with my controller)

    Yes.
    So you should now be able to use Dualshock 4 with your San Andreas, if you want, for some reason.

    Not a fair reward for the price in cut songs you had to pay.

    Hopefully its just due to a shitty patch job instead of outright removing content. They basically swapped the game for the new 360/android version.

    The menu of the Android to 360 version looks rather off but at least it's faster than before.

    welp, time to go download the game and replace all the files for the music. Then again, I use a custom soundtrack.
