We understand your skepticism at the title of this article, because rumors of Grand Theft Auto V coming to PC and next-gen consoles keep circulating without anything coming of them. This time, while we still don’t have official confirmation of anything, we’ve got a little more than a store listing the game for preorder.
It started that way—a Portuguese store called Worten listed GTA V for PS4 for sale. When questioned about it, the store’s representative said it isn’t a mistake. Customers can preorder a PS4 copy of GTA V from them, although there is no known release date. SuperGamer Czech, on the other hand, has GTA V preorders available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and believes they will release on June 13.
There really isn’t much we can say at this point. Worten certainly thinks the PS4 version of GTA V is a reality, but Rockstar has remained silent on the matter. You can add this to the collection of rumors and join us in waiting for an official announcement.
Retailers continue to accept preorders for the as-yet-unannounced PC version of GTA V, and UK retailers are the next to join the list. Gamereactor received word from a source in High Street retail that customers will be able to preorder the game from them soon.
We previously told you that the Nordic retailer Elgiganten was preparing to take GTA V PC preorders, but that has been postponed. However, Czech retailer SuperGamer has taken it a step further than any of the others. They have GTA V listed for PC with a release date of June 13.
Rockstar still hasn’t said a word, but with the way the rumors keep stacking up, we’re starting to believe GTA V is on its way to PC. Could it be coming this summer, as SuperGamer reports? We’ll keep you updated.
If you still haven’t pre-ordered GTA 5 and own a Xbox 360, here’s your chance to score a pretty sweet deal (and the Atomic Blimp pre-order bonus vehicle of course).
If you order right now via the Microsoft Store you’ll also get yourself a total of 1,600 MS Points. With Microsoft recently starting to convert everyone’s points into local currency, this is effectively the same as receiving a $20 credit for the Xbox Live Marketplace – definitely nothing to sneeze at when the game is only costing you $59.99.
Check the deal out here and remember – there will definitely be some DLC for GTA V eventually. It will be nice to have some points/Xbox Live credit ready and waiting for when it drops.
Rockstar Games has announced that pre-orders for the Day 1 Digital edition of Grand Theft Auto V have gone live on the Playstation Store in North America and Latin America.
So now instead of worrying about getting down to your local store at midnight, you can kick back, and provided you’ve got a fast internet connection, start downloading and playing GTA 5 in the wee hours of September 17.
It was also confirmed that all digital pre-orders will still receive the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle, just like those who make “physical” game pre-orders. Not only that though, but all digital pre-orders will also receive a free exclusive PS3 theme as well as 75% off any full priced Rockstar games on the Playstation Network (this discount will be available from when you make your pre-order so might help kill some time until GTA 5 is released!).
Regarding Day 1 Digital pre-orders for the Xbox 360 version of the game, Rockstar has advised that the Xbox Games on Demand service does not offer the ability to pre-order games or make them available on launch day. So if you own a Xbox 360 and want GTA V on launch, you’ll still need a physical copy. Rockstar does want to make GTA 5 available to download from Xbox Live as soon as technically possible though.
No word yet on whether the PS3 pre-order offer will be made available to those of us outside North America and Latin America.
Two questions: Have you pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto V yet and do you like the keychain below? If you answered no then yes, keep reading…
“Exclusive pre-order offers” are pretty common these days, especially for big games like GTA 5, and depending where you shop you can pick up different loot with your selected title. While everyone who pre-orders GTA V will get the chance to pilot the Atomic Blimp in the game, different outlets are running different “side bonus” deals. Check out our list here.
But back to the new Walmart offer, pre-order with them today and you’ll get the GTA V keychain, which we think is actually one of the more practical bonuses you’re likely to receive anywhere. Keychains get used every day and this one in particular looks very cool (it’s GTA – how can it not!?).
Anyway, head over to Walmart and reserve your copy of GTA 5 today to also pick up the keychain – Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 version.
It’s been a while since we got any fresh artwork or images for GTA V, so the two new pieces below are most welcome.
As you can see, two new pre-order display images (taken from a GameStop) look like they will be rolling out across the country. One shows a bank robber making his getaway on a motorbike with a police helicopter overhead, while the other shows a different bank robber with pantyhose masking checking his watching during the middle of a heist. The name of the jewelry store being robbed is Vangelico’s.
Vengelico’s, in case you didn’t know, is a jewelry store that is robbed by Michael, Franklin and two others in the first GTA 5 trailer. With GTA V’s release window opening in just over two months’ time, expect more media like this to be released.
