Just when you thought the seemingly endless stream of discounts for GTA V were at an end, Amazon has arrived to prove you wrong. Over the months, GTA V discounts and sales have been following one another back to back, with the PC being the most prevalent among them.
Even so, the PS4 and Xbox One version have been getting plenty of attention from various storefronts. This year, the more important sales were the Steam Lunar New Year sale and the Playstation Essentials sale earlier this year.
GTA V’s sales are ever increasing even so long after launch, leading to Rockstar’s and Take Two’s rather grandiose plans for the game’s future.
Of course these sales are a pretty significant contributing factor, seeing as they allow gamers with a somewhat tighter budget to jump in as well. GTA V is a prime game in that regard by default, considering the sheer amount of content you get for your money.
With both the massive single player campaign and GTA Online with its constant stream of free updates included, this is one of the best valued games currently on the market.
Currently, the Playstation 4 and Xbox One version of GTA V are discounted on Amazon’s Canadian site. The prices are slashed by 43%, meaning the game can be bought for CDN$ 39.99 instead of CDN$ 69.99. Add to that free worldwide shipping and you’ve got a pretty solid deal.
Possibly the only downside of cashing in on this discount is that any version of GTA V bought from the Canadian Amazon site will not contain the one million in-game currency for GTA Online most current-gen versions of the game come with.
Considering how difficult it is to accumulate money in the game, that one million is a solid boost, however there are plenty of ways to grind up that amount through gameplay.
While sales and discounts are aplenty, it is quite surprising that GTA V has managed to retain its full price for such a long time. Games like this are only released ever so often when the planets align and the ancient prophecies are fulfilled – not only has the average number of sales slightly increased over the years since the initial release spike, the price has remained constant.
Despite the numerous discounts, countless people are still buying the game full price, which is quite the feat as well.
Have you guys upgraded to current-gen GTA V, or are you waiting for an even better discount?
