I usually buy games online and i never pay more than 50 Euros for new games, games in stores here cost between 55-65 Euros. I noticed that the online store i use had GTA5 for 55 Euros, but since i dont care for GTA5 i didnt worry with it.

Now i just had a phone call from a friend asking if i knew where he could get the game cheaper, because he just went to pre-order at a local store and they want 75 Euros for it!

WTF? 75 Euros???? (+/- 100$) And for the basic version!

Why couldnt they settle for the traditional price?

I had to pre-order from my online store for him, he was panicking at the thought of 75 Euros... 20 Euros difference is a lot of money!

looks like you are getting ripped off. I am paying £40 from shopto.net. still, most games wont come anywhere near the amount of content and quality GTA usually offers. GTA 5 will be GOTG.

People would buy gta5 even if it were 100+ euro's, wait 1-2 months.
The price will be below 50 euro's.

Yep that local store is trying to rip someone off. The game cost me the same price as any other new release ($59.99).

yeah, i guess the stores here are trying to rip people off and the online ones are also jumping in that train a bit.

He wants the game at launch and with Portuguese subtitles, so i cant suggest him UK amazon version (they usually strip all extra languages from UK versions).

Dirty stores...

Through gamestop in the UK if you trade in 2 of a number of older titles you can get GTAV for £4.99, lol.

The blimp is in the game, the preorder is to have some new skin on the blimp.

A lot depends on where this is. In the UK, retailers set the prices arbitrarily (generally based on supply v. demand), while in North America, they are forced to abide by supplier costs.

I paid $80 USD at GameStop for the Special Edition PS3 version. Worth every penny. :cool:

With how much they spent to make the game, I bet they hate consumers like me. I am not buying GTA5 until it releases on PC and drops to $5. Got WAY too many unplayed games as it is to be bother with buying it when it releases.

It's expensive as hell here in Australia (unsurprisingly). $90 at JB-Hi Fi, a store normally known for relatively generous prices.

I don't care though, it'll be worth it. :D

I can't blame you... I should be doing the same thing... but I can't stand the idea of everyone else enjoying GTA V and me sitting on the side lines.
