Microsoft has announced that the next title to join its Xbox Live Originals lineup will be Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The game, which was originally released on the PlayStation 2 in 2004 , will be available for download on October 20 for 1,200 Microsoft Points (or $15).

San Andreas is often remembered for the controversial “hot coffee” scandal, but the game is also notable for having the largest world yet seen in a GTA game, spanning three massive cities, and for the wide range of vehicles available to play with. So if for some reason you’ve never played the GTA series, this is a good opportunity to go back and try the game.

Also coming to Xbox Live is Portal: Still Alive. The game is essentially a standalone version of the hit title bundled in Valve's Orange Box but with some added bonuses, which include 14 new levels and six “advanced maps.” Portal: Still Alive will be available on October 22, for 1,200 Microsoft points.
