Get GTA 5 with 1600 MS Points free via Microsoft

Microsoft hopes to draw gamers into pre-ordering the Xbox 360 version of what will inevitably be one of the biggest games of the year with the promise of free Microsoft Points for every pre-order. (Grand Theft Auto V, Xbox 360)

that's actually a pretty sweet deal.
I still wish amazon would renew their $20 credit for buying new games, but 1600 ms points is pretty cool.

hopefully, i can get a good arcade game with this.

don't know why you got two disagrees for what you said, but 1600 ms points sounds pretty good too.

As long as they dont announce exclusive dlc for a year I dont care if they offer 50000 points

They actually do this for a lot of games.
Seems better to order from them than Amazon, anymore.

Sounds like they know DLC is coming for GTAV

Only thing that sucks about this is its US only :(

Done now give me my points .
I'd rather get the superior PC version that comes with free mods & better textures.

GTA + PC = Superior Version? They are awful ports, GTA4 was a pile of festering unoptimised shite.

I doubt anyone will do that. I would rather go to a store and get it day 1 rather than waiting for it.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   878d ago
Well this is just basically competing against sites like Amazon.

Many people like to save money usually at the cost of having to wait a few days for shipping.

This is targeted to that crowd that would like $20 worth of MS points to put towards DLC or other games just for waiting a couple days.

Really? I'd much rather take the $20 bonus and get it day 2 or 3.

Microsoft's own store?? :(

I admit I like my Playstation more than my Xbox 360, but if this deal were to be on retail stores too, i would seriously not even think about the PS3 version, and just get the Xbox 360 version and take advantage of this awesome deal (granted Microsft would lose millions of money, but would have more sales for the 360 version).

Well, they can do it because it's $15 worth of credit to the user, but it works out as MUCH less for MS. Plus, they get to show it as a loss on their taxes. It probably comes out as them losing nothing in the end. Corporations have really savvy accounting people, so they can do stuff like this. If it does cost them something, it's marked up as advertising money.

Isn't 1600 MS Points $20??

I hope MS does this for retailers too. It'd be sweet to buy GTAV, then see you get 1600 MS Points, which you can use on the Season Pass if there is one, buy San Andreas on Live, or whatever you want.
guitarded77  +   877d ago
My bad... $20. My statement still stands.
iamlegend9999  +   878d ago
Nope, i'd rather have gta 5 on release day instead of a couple of days.
konnerbllb  +   878d ago
Do they bill you now or later? I'd rather they billed me now.
KaBaW  +   878d ago
I believe they bill later. But, I could be mistaken.

This sounds really good for xbox users. Although I have a strange feeling this is just to sway peopole from the ps3 version, which will be on one disc to the xbox version, which will likely be on multiple discs.

Here they go again, too scared to play on a level playing field!!
koh  +   878d ago
Sony could choose to do something similar if they wanted, so the playing field is pretty level from where where I'm standing. Seems like a deal that's both user- and indie developer-friendly honestly.
cleverusername  +   878d ago
You must be in the cheap seats, last gta they made out they had exclusive content when the truth was it was 'TIMED' exclusive, this time they're offering people money to buy their version!! (but only on the condition that you spend it in their store of course)

This isn't a timed exclusive tho (which is bad for a certain percentage of gamers), this is a deal that is either good for consumers of has no effect on them. In what way does this offer hurt PS3 gamers?
lastofgen  +   878d ago
what are you talking about?
ms has a good deal for xbox owners and you manage to turn it into something negative??
stage88  +   877d ago
Nice try Microsoft, nice try...
StreetsofRage  +   877d ago
Well judging from most rockstar games and open world games, I'm picking the 360 version regardless of points.
