The GTA V Price Is About to Soar On PlayStation

Grand Theft Auto V has been trundling along for years now and seemingly refused to die. But it's still working for Rockstar Games. The developer's monolith has been a money mill since its launch in 2013, and now, it's spanning three different console generations - a feat that not many titles can boast.

It's a big deal, and though GTA V is massively adored, the practices that followed the game have always been deemed as a means for Rockstar to milk more money out of fans. Naturally. And now, its price is about to skyrocket on new-gen consoles.

Why Is GTA V's New-Gen Port Getting More Expensive?

The GTA V Price Is About to Soar On PlayStation

We've been waiting for another reason to give Rockstar Games more money, so this is a real treat. The introductory price for the new-gen version for Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S is about to expire.

Once again, the record-breakng GTA title is about to be much more expensive than a game that was initially released just under a decade ago has any right to be. Is that stopping parent company Take-Two Interactive? No, no it is not!

Players on Xbox have been able to make use of a 50% off discount bringing the new-gen port down to $19.99/£17.49, while PlayStation users have had it even better with a 75% off deal. This means Sony fans could grab GTA V for just $9.99/£8.75. If that wasn't enough, players could claim the new-gen version of GTA Online for free if they had played the game on PlayStation 4 before. But this era of reasonable pricing is about to end.

 

How Much Is GTA 5 Now?

The post-launch discount period officially comes to an end on June 14, which means that the game is going up to its full price from today. For those still planning on picking up GTA V, you're now going to have to pay a whopping $39.99/£34.99 for the full GTA V package on both consoles, and GTA Online alone will cost $19.99/£17.99.

It's irritating to see GTA V leap up in such a way, especially considering the automotive giant has been out so long - but it means that if you don't have it now, you may have simply missed the boat unless you're really willing to fork out for it. Don't worry, we're sure Rockstar will be releasing a souped-up version for the PlayStation 6 eventually - insert eye roll here.
