GTA 5 is probably going for a Guinness World Record for “game most frequently discounted” or something like that with all these sales going on all the time. We’ve always said that it’s technically on sale all the time, as there is almost definitely some kind of discount on one of the platforms at some distributor somewhere, at any given time.
The game has managed to retain the same full price that it had upon launch, which is rare when first release happened three years ago. Not even the biggest AAA rivals keep their value for so long, but it seems that the game is compensating for the $60 regular price tag with the constant sales.
While the PS4 version of the game is trying to keep up, it is undoubtedly the PC version that sees the most discounts, simply due to the high number of third party digital distribution sites available for the platform. In fact, GTA 5 has hit its lowest price ever on PC last year, going for less than thirty bucks.
While this most recent sale gets close to that, it isn’t breaking any records. The base game and some Shark Card bundles are all discounted on GreenManGaming, a third party game-key distribution site.
The standard version is discounted by 33%, the Great White Shark Card bundle by 35%, the Whale Shark Bundle by 40% and finally the Megalodon bundle by 45%. Add to this a stacking 20% coupon code “DEALZON20” and the prices are slashed by an even greater degree.
Not only is this a great way for players to upgrade to the definitive edition of GTA 5, but it is also a prime time to nab some of the bigger Shark Cards for cheaper. For example, the stock price of the Megalodon Shark Card is $100. With these discounts, you can buy a Megaloson bundle for $59.83, which is a pretty solid markdown, plus you’ll have a spare copy of the game to gift to your friends, for example.
The other card bundles don’t quite offer such epic savings, but all of these are solid discounts, perfect for any player still looking to upgrade, or to acquire some in-game cash the easy way for cheap. GreenManGaming often hosts sales on many popular titles, so even if you aren’t buying in now, you should keep an eye on their store page to catch any good discounts.
