Recently many games in the GTA series were discounted on the Playstation Store to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the initial release of the first iteration of that legendary gaming console. With the Playstation players getting their fill, it is time for the Xbox players to get some sweet deals as well.
Deals with Gold is the discount service accessible by Xbox owners with an Xbox Live Gold or Silver subscription, which also enables certain online and multiplayer features. The service also includes Games with Gold, which allows subscribers to play games the haven’t bought, with a different selection available each month.
It seems logical that Rockstar would put a discount on the GTA games at this time, as the announcement and subsequent release of the massive GTA Online Freemode Events update has put the global entertainment spotlight on the blockbuster video game franchise once again. GTA BOOM has previously theorized that the launch of GTA Online 1.29 will attract a large number of new players, and now with GTA V being on sale, that number can only get larger. If you know anyone who has been eyeing GTA V, now would be a good time to urge them to jump in.
The games on sale are GTA V, going for $47.99 on Xbox One, which is a 20% discount, and $25.20 on Xbox 360, meaning you save 58%. There are also discounts on other GTA games, including GTA IV and GTA San Andreas on Xbox 360, and the price of various shark cash cards for GTA Online have been slashed on Xbox One. Games which aren’t related to GTA are also on sale, so if you have a few extra bucks kicking around and you’re looking to add to that backlog of yours, now would be a great time to do so.
Do you know anyone who’s jumping on to the GTA bandwagon thanks to the 1.29 release, or even due to this sale?
