In yet another wave of sales GTA V has been discounted on the PS3 and PS4. This particular sale doesn’t really have a specific reason for being, not that retailers really need explanations for their sales (though they do take every chance to make up excuses for one).
A few rather popular titles on Sony’s consoles have been discounted on the Playstation store. This coincides with Steam’s Lunar New Year sale, which also features a cheaper GTA V among just under 10,000 other discounted games. That’s Steam for you.
Among the several big-name games that have had their prices slashed is God of War 3 Remastered and Destiny: The Taken King alongside Rockstar’s cash cow. Techically the latter isn’t part of the same sale as the other two, not that it particularly matters. If you want to experience Kratos’ ultimate adventure on the superior hardware of the PS4, you’ll need to pay £15.99 instead of the regular thirty.
Coming to GTA V, prices differ depending on platform. Naturally the older PS3 version is the cheaper of the two – and the lesser. Last-gen gamers can pick up GTA V for £17.49 compared to the original price of £49.99. We’ve spoken about how steady GTA V’s price has been all this time despite its age, however even that doesn’t justify keeping the last-gen version’s price that high.
The current gen version got itself a smaller discount but it’s still something. Rather than the regular £54.99, you can now pick up GTA V on PS4 for just £36.84. The discounts on the three games last until the 17th of February.
GTA V, despite having originally been released almost three years ago with current-gen version having been around for a year, will be seeing a promotional console bundle package together with the Uncharted collection.
Are any of you guys picking up either GTA V or God of War 3 Remastered during the sale?
