Grand Theft Auto 3: San Andreas was recently ported to the PlayStation 3. You can buy it for $14.99 on the PlayStation Store.

The PS2 Classic version of the game, which was released for PS3 in 2012, is now unavailable. Polygon writes that the game’s trophies are identical to the Xbox 360 port of San Andreas that Rockstar released last year, but that the game’s platinum trophy takes the place of a trophy called “Trickster.”

This trophy was awarded when the player completed 10 pimping missions. (Uh, okay.)

Other than that, the PS3 port is virtually identical to the Xbox 360 version. When that came out in 2014, Richard Leadbetter said it looked most like Rockstar’s mobile port of the game, which wasn’t exactly a compliment.

“What could have been an opportunity to produce the ultimate, definitive version of GTA: San Andreas comes across as something of a missed opportunity,” he wrote.

On the other hand, this version has improved draw distance and ultimately takes up less space than the PS2 version of the game. The download is 2.1 GB.
