GTA San Andreas has been available for Android and iOS for over a month now, with both versions already receiving updates. However, the Windows Phone 8 port has eluded the platform so far, but that is until today, as GTA San Andreas for Windows Phone 8 has finally gone live.

GTA San Andreas for Windows Phone 8 supported devices – Before you get too excited we need to inform you that not all WP8 devices are supported, so for now only the Nokia Lumia 810, 820, 822, 1320 and 1520, as well as the HTC 8XT will be able to play the new gaming app.

We shouldn’t look at the negatives here because it is good to see a game from the GTA franchise finally make its way onto WP8 handsets, and in time the supported GTA San Andreas list will expand to include some of the other popular Windows Phone 8 handsets.

GTA San Andreas for Windows Phone 8 vs. Android vs. iOS – Like we said above, the app has been available on the larger platforms since December and it would be silly to try and compare them to the WP8 version seeing as though the hardware on those handsets are nothing like the Galaxy S4, HTC One and even the iPhone 5S.

The price for GTA: San Andreas on the Windows Phone Store is £5.49, which is 50 pence more than the Android and iOS versions.
