GTA 5 Come With 1600MS Point Rebate

Microsoft has every new game set for release in 2013 available for preorder, with a substantial rebate. (Grand Theft Auto V, Xbox 360)

flappersack  +   993d ago
Unsure whether to pre order this for PS3 or 360 just yet.
omi25p  +   993d ago
360 for me, All my friends will be buying it for 360. I prefer Achievements to Trophies.

I buy every multiplatform for 360 simply because i prefer it. My PS3 is solely for Exclusives.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   992d ago
That's honestly how my friends do it. Buy all Multiplats for Xbox and PlayStation for exclusives. Which makes sense seeing how Xbox "has no games right?" Sarcasm* ( YES NO {Sorta} )

I know its seems odd to N4G that allot people tend to play "MULTIPLATS"<< <(key word) on Xbox and buy the many AAA's exclusives on PlayStation.

That's the point of the rebate. M$ is trying to get people to buy it on an inferior platform.

THis is probably going to be the best selling video game of all time.

I believe it will sell MORE on the PS3 than any other platform since 360 and PS3 are the only options and playing it on the 360 will require a subscription fee for the online service and will also require you to use multiple dvds instead of just 1 bluray.
BeAGamer  +   993d ago
still getting this for my PS3. I don't want to deal with my 360 and have to swap discs.

Plus, Grand Theft Auto is more of a Playstation franchise. Have to stick true to the roots.

If that the case then you should also play it on Windows & Game boy Color
kingPoS  +   993d ago
That's true, but Playstation was the main platform most people paid attention to when the GTA series became popular. It also didn't hurt the you could experience virtually all of the GTA games on the playstation brand.

I'm still waiting for the first three to show up on Live and PSN. (fingers crossed)
DrugAddict-  +   993d ago
I really don't get why you just told us all you're going to do.. Just say, no, I'd rather get it for my PS3 and shut up..
DigitalSmoke  +   993d ago
You dont want him to talk about the joke of a game being on 2 discs these days?

Well it is, and yes its prety pathetic.
SPAM-FRITTER-123  +   993d ago
@flappersack. buy it on the PS3, that way you're paying more and probably going to get the worst version without timed exclusive DLC.

@BeAGamer. LOL Roots? GTA started on windows and DOS and has been released on windows ever since.
Also is it too much hard work to get yourself out of your chair to swap a disc? i will be getting it for PC myself as it will have great Mod support. I would rather a 2 second disc swap on an Xbox than a mandatory 1 hour install on the PS3.

i was just going to say i was getting it for PC BUT as you had to tell the world why you don't want the 360 version i just thought i would point out you will probably be getting the worst version.

spam---flapper will not be payin more because if it has online of course free on ps3 cost 360 money, last i heard and i seen an article here way back its being worked on by the ps3 and 360 will be the port...and timed exclusive who cares thats just M$ way into getting u to buy their system so u can get stuff first....i am a sony gamer and always will be .....ok back on topic...its cool with the rebate save it up to get 1 add on for free when it comes out
Cam977  +   993d ago
That's right, make assumptions without seeing a thing about the game. You do know that what we've seen ha been on PS3 and not Xbox, doesn't that tell you something. Stupid fanboy.
unchartedxplorer  +   993d ago
SPAM-FRITTER-123 Who said there is going to be timed exclusive dlc? Rockstar said they are doing nothing of the sort.
The chances of it getting timed dlc on the xbox is less because the demo was shown on the ps3
To be honest it did have roots on the playstion. When GTA III came out sony got a couple of year's exclusivity for the grand theft auto series. Look up on you tube Rockstar history ep 2 by machinima and skip to the 6 min mark and you'll know what I mean.
Plus I think taking out a disc about a billion times is worse than installing for ten minutes ONCE.

gta 5 on 360 will be a mess

I don't know how you did it but you managed to insult the 360 and the ps3 communities.

Also all the demos they have shown the press have been on PS3.
HappyTrigger  +   993d ago
Was it really necessary to waste two bubbles telling us you're going to get it on PS3? I think we got your point the first time. lol

In any case, pretty good promotion. But I already have mine pre-ordered at Gamestop (Yes, that evil store :P) and the fact you have to go the store to redeem it is a bummer since the MS store is a pretty long drive.
Ha ha ha ha. Irregardless!! You ignorant hick.
1nsaint  +   993d ago
If it is 2 disc, it will probably be like forza and halo 4, where u just install disc 2 once and then never use it again, much like how it goes with install discs on pc..
RuleofOne343  +   992d ago
*its currently 2013* But yet we still use tissues for wiping. its unacceptable. ha ha
IAMERROR  +   993d ago
so MS actually gives gamers a great deal and they still complain? lmao! "pathetic" really? What's more pathetic than hating on a piece of plastic? "Xbox3fixme" really dude? Grow up. When I said Sony fanboys would never let it go... I was right, literally.

And since was multiple discs an major issue? Was this even confirmed? More of playstation franchise? I disagree, that's like saying Final Fantasy is more of a Nintendo franchise cuz that's where it started. Xbox wasn't even around back then, they just put it on whatever platforms are popular. GTA also sells better on Xbox, so maybe it's more of a Xbox franchise :) hahaha

You might as well get it for ps3 because going by that comment i doubt you have a 360.
RandomEclipse  +   992d ago
Is that why the PS3 version of gta4 was the inferior version compared to the 360 version?
BanBrother  +   993d ago
Not complaining, but I would love to be able to buy stuff from the Microsoft store in my country. Freakin awesome deals, Americans don't know how lucky they are.

I'll just stick to the Ps3 version, although I expect to be paying $100 with no freebies :(
Cocozero  +   993d ago
360 version all the way GTA4/RDR were superior on the 360 GTA5 will be no different

MS points are just a bonus.

Wrong, this GTA got build on the PS3, and then ported to the 3fixme.
dazzrazz  +   993d ago
and then somehow it still managed to have 20% more rendered pixels because PS3 ran at 1152x640 I guess that 256MB of ram was not enough on your super cell advanced machine lol

Insignificant details that barely matters to the untrained eye. Try GTA 4 at 1920x1080 60fps & you'll see how much better it performs than '3fixme' & 'super cell'.

There will be no real difference between GTA5 on either platform, if you have both, then play it on the one that your mates play (for the online).

I don't know what is more pathetic, microsoft giving out money to plz stay on their system.
or the xbox3fixme player who don't know its a small part of their own money they get back for paying to use their own internet on their own console...

What a joke.
die_fiend  +   993d ago
Speaking of pathetic, read what you just wrote. To actually hate a console...you should get that checked maybe pal! Is it pathetic to get incentivise people to buy their version of what will be one of the biggest selling games ever? Seems quite sensible to me. And about paying for Xbox live...u know that you can talk to your friends while playing on the console yeah? That's one hell of a phone bill I've saved
aPerson  +   993d ago
I'd bet my left nut that if it were Sony offering the deal (obviously they wouldn't use MS points), you'd be praising them for it.

I'll tell you what's pathetic: console loyalty and brand fanboyism.
NoobJobz  +   992d ago
Finally someone with some sense. While I do prefer one console over another, I still hate when fanboys of my preferred system say the things they do. Fanboys in general are immature. I'm hoping fanboys are little kids because immaturity in that case would at least make some sense. But if you are an adult spouting nonsense, that is flat out embarrassing. Grow up.

aviator189  +   993d ago
you're hating a company because they're giving free $20 worth of points with a game and spinning it as pathetic??

Jovahkiin  +   993d ago
Read the fine print. When the game is released your sent out a coupon with the game. You then bring the coupon to a Microsoft store and they'll give you 1600 MSP.

List of stores show they're only in USA and Canada.


Stay smart guys!
iamnsuperman  +   993d ago
I get the American only thing but having to physically take the coupon into one of the few shops to get the discount is a bit sneaky of them
kingslayer1000  +   993d ago
ill be getting it for ps3. You just can't play gta on dvd discs these days, they are outdated.

DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   993d ago
I have no problem with disc swapping.
Ace_Pheonix  +   993d ago
I'll be getting it for PS3 regardless of whether it has a very minor, unnoticable performance difference or not. Swapping discs whenever I cross a bridge or switch characters would be a hassle, and I simply prefer my PS3. I own both consoles. I don't hate my 360. I just don't like it, really. Red Dead and GTA3 were splendid on my PS3, and I'm sure 4 will be no different.
chcolatesnw  +   993d ago
Again with the childish fanboy talking about a game that hasn't even released. And so idiotic to assume that you'd have to change discs when you cross a bride or switch a character. Did LA Noire do that? No, you'll have to change discs based on story progression, not when you want to take a boat ride. And i made that assumption because its the only efficient way to split a game and it has been precedented by LA Noire. So take you stupid dumbfck childish ps3 live long play bullshit and go back to school you 12 y/o imbecile.

I doubt that there will be a disc swap. Probably just install a disc or two. Or, I guess the game could fit on one DVD, but I find that unlikely.
Ace_Pheonix  +   993d ago
Yeah, not fanboyism here. Simply stating my opinion or preference. I didn't say "Yo, XBOX is lame and shit, blah blah personal attack" quite like you so ineffectively did. As stated, have both consoles. As stated, prefer my PS3. So you can play your console of choice, and I can be happy for you playing your console of choice, because here in America, variety is the heart of capitalism and why the world is great. Not 12, 26. Not a fanboy. And if you can't be happy for me playing on my console of choice, you can go fuck yourself.
chcolatesnw  +   992d ago
i have ps3, 360 and gaming pc so i'm neutral, but you said you gonna get ps3 version for a false reason. you said you don't want to switch disc every time you cross a bridge, thats false. so yes, it really does show that you clearly don't own a 360, otherwise you'd have known discs arent split like that, hell you dont even need the console, just some common sense that you pick up in 5th grade
Ace_Pheonix  +   991d ago
My gamertag is AcePX if you don't believe me. I played Geometry Wars on it, and Halo Reach. Personally hated Reach, so I haven't really bothered to turn it on since then. To each his own. I've never played a next gen multidisc game, so I really don't know how they do it. If they split it the way you suggest, it's not too big of a deal to change a disc once through a playthrough. And I also said "and I simply prefer my PS3". Primary reason for me buying it on PS3. I just hope they fix the online lobby system and lag. GTA4 was way fun playing online with friends, if they can fix their matchmaking, party system, lobby system, lag, it'll be incredible.

This post and http://n4g.com/news/1156003... proves this community is SFB heavy. The once "Xbox fans claim the Xbox has no games and Kinect Kinect blah, blah and claimed they turned into a Sony fan boys because of it.

But when MS does good they continue to bash them. It seems like MS cant please anybody on here. That's fine it'll please those almost 2million Xbox's that sold through Nov and Dec a little site this doesn't matter just a blip in the gaming verse.

On topic: I think its great MS giving away MS points if you pre-order through the MS store. It would be even great if this was retail deal also (gamestop, Walmart etc).
