A Look At The Rare GTA Trilogy On PS2

CGUK writes:

"With Grand Theft Auto: V due in mere months, now is the best time to relive any of the PS2-era GTA games you wish to revisit. With this in mind, we at CGUK utilized this opportunity to highlight a rare-trilogy of classic games that has shot-up in value since its 2009 release. Featuring 3 of the PS2's most controversial yet most appreciated open-world games, the GTA: Trilogy is the easiest way to grab the 3 included classics in a hurry; however, as time has had its effect, the value of this convenient package has skyrocketed since its debut 4 years ago to heights greater than its original RRP." (Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, GTA 3, PlayStation 2, PS2)

Not only are they not rare, they are the censored / edited versions of San Andreas and Vice City (Vice City being the version with the Haitians that have been changed from their original appearance.

This is the PAL (european) version, as shown by the royal blue case.

Im not sure of the rarity of the PAL version, but in some occurrences PAL games are rarer than it's NTSC counterpart...

Case in point... The PS1 game "Blues Clues: Blues Big Musical" in NTSC format is common as they come, but the PAL version of this game is one of the rarest titles in the PAL PS1 Library.

I guess it's only rare in the UK

The NTSC version isn't rare, it's a different story for the PAL version. Look at it on Amazon.com then take a look at it on Amazon.co.uk. See what I mean?

Rare? Even in Australia where a game with excessive farting gets banned was this trilogy pack readily available (and probably still is).

These aren't rare at all... And you can get them for fairly cheap.

And GTA 1 and 2 are free on rockstar's website
Cam977  +   550d ago
And this isn't dollars, it's pounds because it's the PAL version - not the NTSC version which ISN'T rare.
ZBlacktt  +   550d ago
Nice approved story, lol.
InTheLab  +   550d ago
I own Intelligent Qube for the PS in like new condition. Paid $7 and it's worth $60+ on Ebay. That's rare. These GTA trilogies are everywhere, not to mention, it's rare label died when the games went digital.

Same thing happened to Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the Ps2/Xbox/DC. All were up to over $100 and dipped down to almost nothing when they went to Live and PSN.
