I hate to be 'that guy' but this screams "cash grab" to me. Why would they include the GTA 4 expansions without including GTA 4 itself? At $60, it's not a particularly great deal and it just seems like a strange combo with MC in there.

Having said that, they're all decent games, but who's going to want all of them that doesn't already own at least a couple?

Afterthought: Holy hell, how many Xbox discs is this combo going to come on? I'm counting at least 6.

Maybe it's because all the haters and Saints Row lovers keep saying GTA4 sucks?

Lol never played saints row but gta 4 does suck

The only game that interest me in this collection is red dead redemption and I could probably pick that up for $20
PS3Freak  +   689d ago
GTA 4 definitely doesn't suck.

Get over your irrational fanboy hate.

Grand Theft Auto is one of the greatest series of all-time.. and coming from someone who has played all of them, and only about an hour of Saints Row 1, GTA 4 was terrible. The worst Grand Theft Auto game made.
xGrunty  +   688d ago
It's not that GTA4 sucked. Imo though, Ballad of Gay Tony and RDR were definitely the better games.
RustedMan  +   688d ago
GTA4 didn't suck.
it was overhyped.

just out of curiosity, how do you define, "suck"?

I think this is super smart and great for any newbies. Ya I dont think it can come out on Xbox unless they charge the full $60 for it. A lot of collections don't because of the DVD situation and price.

wait...you're saying this isnt a great deal.
4 games for $60?

am I mistaken by thinking thats a wicked deal?! especially for those who havent played any of those.

(I only own the episodes of liberty city)
kupomogli  +   689d ago
Midnight Club and LA Noire are both pretty crappy games. You might have heard good things about LA Noire. You more than likely heard all the hype everyone showered the game with, similar to Max Payne 3 which also isn't very good.
Wingman  +   689d ago
That's not a wicked deal. You'll save a few bucks but I guarantee I could walk into Gamestop or go onto Amazon tomorrow and buy all 4 of the titles in this pack for $70.

I think the bundle that would've made more sense would be GTA 4 and all expansions, the GOTY edition of RDR, and the GOTY edition of LA Noire. That, by itself, would've been worth the $60 and it's a bundle that makes sense. All open-world games with that signature Rockstar spin.

Instead of that we got two pieces of GTA 4 without getting the main game, 2 other good open-world games without their expansion, and a seemingly random racing game that has nothing in common with the other titles, with the exception of who it's made by.

Just seems odd.
xtremeimport  +   689d ago
so wait...you just admitted you'd rather go in and buy each individually and spend more than this?

explain 1 more time how its not a good deal?
I agree that itd be a better deal if they were goty editions, but still..its a pretty good deal considering. Look at the positives!
soundslike  +   689d ago
I dont own any of these anymore and will highly consider getting them since the value of the ones I never had is still more or equal to the asking price of the collection.

Sweet friggin deal.
irepbtown  +   688d ago
GTA 4, and Midnight club are the only two I previously owned. I never got around to play LA Noire or the extras for GTA so this will be great for me (I know GTA 4 isn't included).

Red dead Redemption I borrowed from a friend, didn't like it that much but maybe that was because I rushed to get online. LA Noire looks like a beautiful game. Midnight I did enjoy a lot. And from what I'm told by my friends, Ballad of gay tony and Lost & Damned are brilliant.

$60, I'm guessing they'd sell it for £40 here. Well worth it. I just hope it will be out before Christmas time.

Sounds like an excellent way to take advantage of a triple layered blu ray disc. All these games on one disc might make the universe collapse.

Ok first with UBI not including AC1 with AC collection or the dlc and now RS who I have a lot of respect for I mean come on how stupid do you think consumers really are?

GTA complete edition not included
Red dead GOTY not included

Make a great collection include everything because IMO in the Long run that will generate more sales because more people who already have all those games might consider just buying me collection who sold their games or traded

But whatever I have all these games
torchic  +   689d ago
I have none of these games and this is an excellent deal. as a person who waits for games to go cheaper this is a definite day one purchase for me.

excellent value well done Rockstar
Gamehard  +   689d ago
The AC collection is actually an "Ezio collection" so part 1 isn't really necessary. And AC1 kinda sucks in comparison to the others...

But yeah, this collection is pretty silly.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   689d ago
It is a good deal tbh, but it's like you said, a majority of gamers are gonna have a few of these games included in the bundle already. This buy is good for someone who has been out of the gaming scene for awhile(military,dads,moms,etc) or it's a good gift to buy the kids for xmas.
Cam977  +   689d ago
The answer: no discs - it is only coming to Ps3.
shiver130  +   689d ago
You don't need GTA 4 to play the expansions. They're standalone and have their own story.
Slugg3r  +   688d ago
I doubt that the RDR ain't full experience either. Should have included GTA4 and the expansion and RDR GOTY.
r1sh12  +   688d ago
surely if you buy all of those games used it would be less than $60.
DasTier  +   688d ago
Because GTA 4 sucks, the expansions were infinitely better.
dedicatedtogamers  +   689d ago
If it was for PC (perhaps it is, but the article didn't say) I would grab it. It's not a bad deal, even if you've already played some of those game.
Wingman  +   689d ago
I know Red Dead never came out on PC (something I'm still sad about), and I don't think Midnight Club did either.

Besides, Steam sales offer way better deals than this package.
Slugg3r  +   689d ago
How can anyone disagree with you? RDR never came to PC. I should know, I waited for the PC version all these years and just recently managed to accept the truth that it's never coming to PC and just bought it for my PS3. And yes, Steam sales do offer better deals from time to time, you some times get ALL of the publishers games for $60.

the GTA collection on Steam has GTA 1-3, Vice City, San Andreas, GTA 4, GTA 4 Episodes.

during summer sale all that for $12.49!
iXenon  +   689d ago
Regardless if it doesn't have GTA 4, all of those games (with the exception of Midnight Club) are must-buys. Getting it all for $60 is a steal

With the exception of Midnight Club? Your on crack dude.

Don't you mean with the exception of Midnight Club "and" LA Noire.

Cool collection! Heard it comes on 8 discs for xbox 360 owners.

Blankman85  +   689d ago
Cute. The original games all fit in 5. Why does this need 3 more?
Vortex3D  +   689d ago
Production cost of printing DVD discs going to be more pricey. Is PS3 version going to use dual layed 50GB Blu-ray disc?
Pekka  +   689d ago
Actually, it isn't pricey. Even printing 5 discs cost around 1 dollars. Printing manual and cover cost a lot more than discs. Heck, you could even print 8 discs and it still wouldn't be pricey. To speak the truth, 1 dual layered BR disc cost more than 5 DVD's.
Drenchk101  +   689d ago
I already know that xbox is going to have more than 5 discs.
BigStef71  +   689d ago
I already got the gta4 rdr and la noire complete editions. All im waiting for is the max payne 3 to come out
ZeroChaos  +   689d ago
Its an interesting take on the collection stuff I'll give them that, but looking at it there is no DLC with LA Noire or RDR. So most likely this is just a collection for the main games.

Not bad, but I think people would have liked a complete collections =/
medziarz  +   689d ago
Midnight Club LA is also an awesome and must-play game
medziarz  +   689d ago
but you can get it on PSN seperately if you're not into GTA derivatives
RurouniKaze  +   689d ago
Theres pretty much a little something for everyone in there
josephayal  +   689d ago
They're releasing the same game over and over
All the consoles are dead, this gen is done...... I think it's time for a new console generation WII U, XBOX 720 AND of COURSE the PS4 ...DEAL WITH IT
Vortex3D  +   689d ago
And with 5-10 games to play? I don't even count every launch title true next gen graphics. No thanks because even with the launch titles, I don't always want to play them and it takes 2 years before there will be enough games made for the next games to make the console very fun.

And then they will probably be selling for $80?

Aren't games usually re-released when the next gen is around the corner? I wouldn't mind another disc bassed MC LA, as I lost my copy (i want the map it came with) and I already own the dlc for it.

Uhhg red cases!!! (i like mines translucent)

taquito  +   689d ago
they're selling rich women their own fat asses back to them.
Vortex3D  +   689d ago
With LA Noire taking so many DVD discs on X360, is there a chance Rockstar is turning most of the episodes in DLC that must be downloaded from Microsoft? The game is designed like episode "plug-in" for all the cases. In theory, the game is playable even there is zero case left to solve. You just drive around LA and do whatever idiot things you like to the people and cars on the street as long you don't kill them. There's even an achievement if you can cause x dollar amount of damage in the city and vice versa. When the game ships on X360, amount of discs will immediately tell you if any of the LA Noire episodes get moved to DLC.

GTA4 Complete Edition. Includes GTA4 and Episodes. $25 on PS3, $29 on 360 at Amazon.

Red Dead Redemption GotY. $30.

You're paying less and getting the best games in this collection plus the amazing GTA4. Skip this garbage collection. Midnight Club LA and LA Noire are not good games.
kingPoS  +   689d ago
People have there preferences, in fact I prefer Midnight Club LA over Burnout Paradise due to way my logitech wheel handles it. MC LA may be a bad game to you, but it's the opposite for me. (i can't play it without a wheel) lol
jd666  +   688d ago
Yeah It's the only open world racer that work well with a Logitech DF Pro wheel!! NFS USED to last gen too, I bet Most Wanted doesn't have wheel support!
Magic_Spatula  +   689d ago
Would probably get this for LA Noire (which I haven't played yet) and RDR (brother sold my copy). I already have the entire GTA IV Collection on my PC and couldn't really care about Midnight Club.
Orionsangel  +   689d ago
Oh yeah this is great. If I had been living on a deserted island for the last 4 years.

Edition 1?

Sounds like they are leaving the option open for more collections. Hopefully they get around to doing a few collections with HD versions of PS2 games.

RDR to PC would be nice (I know, not gonna happen)
RivetCityGhoul  +   689d ago
this is really cool we don't usually see a collection with games from different series anymore. it cool to see this, back in the PS2 days we saw alot of these types of collections.

I've already rebought LA Noire, RDR and GTA4 Complete Editions for £15 each!
The__Banka  +   688d ago
I think its a great deal, only problem i see for it is that most people will have probably a couple of these games already so will avoid buying twice.
The__Banka  +   688d ago
they should bring this out next gen on one disk like they did with all the old sega games
