Even More GTA V Discounts On Consoles

Yup, because apparently this still sells really really well. While the PC and last-gen sales did confuse us a tad, discounting the game on the PS4 and Xbox One makes sense to the extent that it gives last-gen players more incentive to upgrade. Not that the lack of any further DLC for GTA Online being released on the 360 and PS3 wasn’t incentive enough, but hey, spending money in video games may not be a priority for some.

However the timing of this particular sale should not be a surprise to anyone, considering that next week is Black Friday, the annual shopping spree holiday which is nothing more than a construct of consumerist society, and a minimum of five American people will be trampled to death by rabid crowds who just have to get that thing which is 50% off or something. (/rant)


Amazon is holding a special pre-Black Friday sale event for their Prime subscribers, who can nick some special deals. A whole horde of video games had been discounted quite significantly, with some special edition pre-orders among them. If you’re a PS4 owner and are looking to pick up GTA V cheap, and also happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you’re in luck. The PS4 version of Rockstar’s record breaking blockbuster is discounted by 43% in the Black Friday Prime sale.


Now, in the beginning of this article, we did write “consoles“, so members of the Microsoft crowd need not feel left out – in fact, Amazon is more generous to Xbox One owners, as they can get GTA V at a 43% markdown even if they’re not Amazon Prime subscribers.

Most other video game related sales this Black Friday focus on either very recently released titles, or highly anticipated upcoming releases – with heavy emphasis on special editions.

Amazon Offering GTA V For Only $39.99


If you’ve been thinking about buying Grand Theft Auto V for some time now, and for some crazy reason haven’t, then this new deal from Amazon might be just the motivation you need.

They are currently offering GTA V on the various platforms (ie PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One) for only $39.99 with free shipping.

There’s no much more to say than that really. This is a steal for one helluva game. Head to Amazon and buy it

Amazon France and Germany GTA V PC Leaks Were Accidental


Rockstar still hasn’t told anyone if GTA V is on its way to PC, Xbox One, and PS4, even though retailers have begun to list it as available for preorder. These retail listings began with Amazon France and Amazon Germany, which caused a flurry of speculation due to Amazon’s general reliability.

In fact, a PC and next-gen GTA V wasn’t the first game to appear on these sites before its official announcement—Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition appeared on Amazon Germany before it was official, and that turned out to be true.

Now, we aren’t conspiracy theorists, but it would be a great way to build hype for a release by leaking information like that. When Edge asked Ketu Patel, the Amazon UK Category Leader of Video-Games and Software, however, he replied in no uncertain terms that it was an accident and that they would never do such a thing intentionally.

Nevertheless, even if the accidental listings aren’t marketing ploys, we’re still holding out hope for GTA V’s release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Amazon Germany Also Lists GTA V for PC


Rumors are rampant that Rockstar plans to release an official PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, something many players want. Although such rumors have existed for quite some time, they received a dose of credibility when Amazon France listed the game for preorders. Now, Amazon Germany has done the same.

The listing on the French site seems to have been removed, but the German site still has it up. Amazon is known for reliable information, so these events are a good sign that a PC release is really on the way.

While fans await GTA V on PC, there is also much talk about versions for the PS4 and Xbox One. The game, which released on September 17 with an online game following on October 1, is currently available only for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Rockstar has yet to make an official statement.

Amazon France Lists GTA V for PC


Fans of Grand Theft Auto V have been clamoring for a PC version for quite some time. Rumors of its release have circulated for months, and modders have been working on their own unofficial versions, while Rockstar has remained silent on the matter. Recently, the rumors have begun to support one another, and now it might be safe to say they are more than just rumors…

The French site for Amazon has GTA V on PC available for preorders. Amazon is a huge online retailer and is normally very reliable, so this should be a sign that the official game is on its way. On the other hand, some fans claim it has been listed on the site for a long time (in fact we can recall rumors of this, but can’t locate the records…).

Either way, if Amazon is allowing players to preorder the game, it sounds like good news for fans. Most reactions to the news have been optimistic – it’s now up to Rockstar to make an official announcement one way or another. Do you think they will or is this just another “mistake” in a long-line of similar occurrences for GTA V on PC?

Amazon: GTA V for PC Announcement Due Christmas Eve


Someone decided to ask Amazon support (in Germany) when Grand Theft Auto V would be arriving for the PC. Given that GTA 5 has not been announced for the PC platform as yet, the response received is pretty surprising…

According to the chat log posted above, GTA V for the PC will be announced on Christmas Eve, 24 December, and will then be released in the United States on March 3 and in Europe on 14 March.

Here’s a loose translation of what the Amazon rep had to say:

Welcome to Amazon Chat. My name is Fatima. According to our information, GTA V for the PC will be announced on 24 December and it will be released in the USA on March 3 and [in Germany] on 14 March.

We’re posting this purely to keep you informed and think that in all likelihood (and unfortunately) this rumor is probably not true. Given that 24 December is literally tomorrow we don’t have long to wait to find out though!

Amazon selling GTA V ridiculously cheap today only


I’m gonna go ahead and assume that most of you are here for cheat codes for Grand Theft Auto V – meaning you already have the game! If (for some unknown, crazy reason) you don’t though, or you know somebody else that doesn’t (weirdos!) then read on.

Amazon is currently selling GTA V on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for just $33.99, which is exceptionally cheap! It also represents perhaps the greatest value for you gaming dollar we’ve ever seen. Pretty much the greatest game ever made (in our humble opinion) going for so cheap means that anyone who hasn’t picked it up yet definitely needs to. And just remember that even once you finish the story line, there is the entire world of GTA Online to get stuck into.

Jump on this deal now though, as it’s only for today!

Amazon Offering GTA V Preorder Bonus Credit


Here’s a deal if you’re considering preordering Grand Theft Auto V.

Right now Amazon are running an offer where if you trade in $10 worth of games, consoles or accessories, you’ll get an additional $10 bonus credit towards GTA 5 (amongst other games). So if you trade an old PS3 game for $10, you’ll get $20 worth of effective preorder credit.

If you want to take advantage of this offer, save some money on GTA 5 and clear out some of your old games at the same time, this might be how to do it. All the details are here at Amazon.

GTA 5 Special and Collector Editions Priced and Detailed

Rockstar Games has today announced details of the special and collector’s editions of Grand Theft Auto V and from a guy who does’t usually bother with these things, the extras look pretty enticing!

For $79.99 you get the special edition which includes the following:


  • The game (yup, gonna need that…)
  • A “steeelbook” with never-before-seen artwork of Michael, Trevor and Franklin.
  • A 21.5” x 26.75” blueprint map of Los Santos and Blaine County.
  • Special Ability Boost – the special ability bar of each of Michael, Franklin and Trevor will regenerate 25% faster. This is pretty bug. There has to be a cheat released for it too (we hope)!
  • Stunt Plane Trials – you can do additional aerial challenges in the game.
  • Bonus outfits and tattoos.
  • Free Weapons – you’ll get the following weapons for free from any Ammunation store: the Pistol .50, Bullpup Shotgun and melee Hammer.  Always handy!

Coming in at $149.99, the collector’s edition will get you everything above plus:


  • A “real” 10.75” x 8.5” GTA 5 security deposit bag with logo key.
  • A GTA V New Era 9FIFTY Snapback Cap. This would be sweet!
  • The ability to use classic GTA characters from previous games in the online character creation system.
  • Instant access to a garage to store custom vehicles as well as the following actual vehicles in single player: 1930’s style Hotknife hotrod and CarbonRS sports bike, as well as the high-end Khamelion electric car in multiplayer.

To be honest, I never purchase collector’s or special editions, but if there is one time I am gonna do it, GTA 5 surely has to be the game!?  Plus some of the extras are very attractive.

PS: Rockstar also announced that if you pre-order ANY version of GTA 5 between now and September 17, then you’ll be able to pilot the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle (picture below). Pretty sweet. Pre-order here: PS3 and Xbox 360.


PPS: while the prices above are in USD, the preorder availability of both editions is worldwide from participating retailers.

The Game in GTAV, PC Version Confirmed?

The Game in Grand Theft Auto V?

Are we going to see The Game in Grand Theft Auto V? Apparently so if the image below, posted from a Facebook account, is anything to go by.  As you can see, the pic is in the usual “Rockstar style” and features the US flag, The Game of course and the GTAV logo. It looks pretty bad ass.


If The Game does indeed feature in Grand Theft Auto 5, it won’t be the first time he’s been involved in a GTA title. You might remember him as Mark Wayne/B-Dup in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.  In any event, given that the release window opens in just over two short months, fresh GTA 5 info should be just around the corner…

PC Version Confirmed by Amazon?

Amazon has had its GTAV listing up for some time (see here), but recently some European versions of the website saw fit to add a PC version of the game to the mix. As you probably know, a PC version has not been announced by Rockstar as yet (with the game arriving on Xbox 360 and PS3 only to begin with).

That said, it is widely believed that a PC version will eventually come, just not at launch. Well, if this page at Amazon France is anything to go by, a PC version of GTAV could be closer than we think!
