"If gamers want the ultimate GTAV gaming experience, it can only be found on PlayStation," said SCEA president Jack Tretton on the stage.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17.

Obligatory PC elitist comment: "GTAV sucks anyway since it won't be coming to PC"

I already have a great head set. The Playstation head set cost $100 and sounds great. So this bundle doesn't help me. Will this version come the the sports car, bike and garage? Will we eventually get a garage or will we park our vehicles in a 2 sport parking space like gta4?

R* have shown so little of GTA V to the public, they could probably hold their own Grand Theft Auto even to showcase the latest title !!!

This hardly sounds essential. Keep your marketing bull to yourself Tretton.

I plan on getting this because I think it's a great deal. My PS3 only has 120 G and that fills up really fast. Also, I don't intend to buy the special edition of GTA V. I plan on playing on PS3 for at least 2 more years so I'll probably give the one I have now to a friend and finish my backlog on a new machine.

Sounds good, as long as R* doesn't put V on PS4 then i'm good!

I will wait for PS4 or even better PC versions. I am sure Watch Dogs will keep me busy until then.

@KrazzyDJ They do that with every game. It's fun actually. I don't watch alot of previews of games once I've decided that I will buy them. Hate having things ruined for me, or have me expecting on thing, only to get another.

@tionmedon uhhh 300 dollars will get you a video card sure. Nowhere near the best, or anything that will last long. But take 300 and subtract 60 for the game, and however much else for the headset. Then see what you are at. Just buy the latest card and be done with it.

@tionmedon A good video card will not work well if your CPU and Mboard is shit. Most probably it'll just bottleneck and run just a tab bit faster.

@HomieHesAKlown GTA5 is 60 bucks. plus cost of headest. it's a good deal. And PS4 isn't backwards compatible at launch so why not?

@valium88 @HomieHesAKlown The PS3 is so old by now that most people who are interested in it already got it. What with the PS4 soon launching I don't know how they think this bundle will be successful. It's a good bundle and quite tempting if you don't have a PS3, but how many of these bundles will actually get sold.
