Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Released

Rockstar Games announces the release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, the updated bundle of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Here's word on where and when to find this: "Available directly from the PlayStation Store, the Microsoft Store, Nintendo eShop, and the Rockstar Games Launcher, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will also release physically for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on December 7 — and will be coming to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022." A couple of notes: An article from NVIDIA describing how these games benefit from DLSS support on RTX graphics cards. Also there's word on IGN on cheats that have been removed for "technical reasons" and PC Gamer details over 40 songs missing from in-game radio stations. Here are trailers showing the improvements on San Andreas, Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto III. Here's the quick explanation:
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition features across-the-board enhancements such as GTAV-inspired modern controls, graphical and environmental upgrades including higher resolution textures, enhanced lighting and weather and more, bringing the iconic locations of Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas to the latest platforms, honoring the experience of the original titles while enhancing them for a whole new generation of players.

Aaaaand it's getting even better: it seems the game on pc has been... uuuuh... "unreleased"? And can not be even bought anymore? What the hell is going on?! As I said ActiBlizz with D2R and now GTA Trilogy may be signs of game companies being headed now by people that are less interested in games and more in other things?
Damn, I want the 80s and 90s and maybe even some of the 00s back.

So some marketing droid told them that today's children have never heard most of the tunes in the game and don't get all the DJ pater or the relevancy of the adds, so they did not pony up to renew the licenses. Then they replace that stuff with some current trash that cost the least money to include. That and break all mods and things like player created vehicles ( I won't play San Andreas without my Captain America chopper.)

Has anyone actually played the new stuff that have also played the originals, love to hear your impressions.

According to the Rockstar Service website, Rockstar Games Launcher Service is currently down. And yes, I cannot download the game... GREAT JOB! It seems that all gaming companies are now officially run by half braindead monkeys. It is really not even funny anymore.
If only this company had behind it the money of Amazon and the power of AWS. Then everything would have worked out just like New World.

I think San Andreas: Definitive Edition was added to Gamepass today, but not on PC, only on consoles.

/edit
After seeing a bunch of reviews it is clear why R* shut down the modders who improved the originals so well.

It looks okay but there's just not enough improvements to justify the purchase. And there's some changes (like solid hedges) that sound awful if true.
The originals with mods is good enough for me.

I kinda like the way they 'updated' the character models. They look more like the art, that way.
I would have rather had all three redone in the current engine, but you roll with what ya got.

The characters look like Rockstar ran their models through a Yahoo emoji program.

Looks neat, I never played GTA3 or San Andreas. Is this trilogy not going to be released on Steam, Epic, or GoG though? I see that its at least on the Microsoft Store and Rockstar Launcher, but I'd prefer not to buy it through it those.
Even if you buy Rockstar games on Steam, you will have to use the Rockstar launcher nevertheless. Therefore, it does not matter where you buy it.

Can you play your own MP3 files in the games though to make up for missing tracks?
