The story is too old to be commented.

You're actually losing 10 bucks. just think about it.
Why not 'get xbox, get gtaiv for free"

There isn't anything worth 50$ in BEST BUY!

You will actually buy a camera or something that will cost $120 and you'll be giving away more money to store.

Just wait for better deals. If you make purchases in best buy mostly, then buy it.

edit: you're losing 10 bucks in the sense that you won't be getting GTA completely free with an xbox360.

I am just saying that you committed to their store, now you can look at this as a bad thing or a good thing, it your opinion.

That seems rather odd. Buy a 360, Buy a GTAIV and you get $50. Where is the loss?

As for "stuff" in BB that is under 50 bucks you could always buy music, cds, dvds, blu-rays, etc. ad nauseum. Or regift it...

You mean like an extra controller, a headset or one year of xbox live.

It's a good deal for people who want a 360. This is a good move on MS's part.

I dunno really not a bad thing for those who need a new 360 cause their warranties expired...
Still better off buyng it on pc but if im going to play it on a console ill take the one that works...

imo Ps3 will sell more units over its lifetime and the free online pawns any best buy voucher.

fenderputty3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

from all the Sony fanboys. lol

How is this NOT a good deal for someone who wants a 360 and this game? They can walk right over to the isle where live gold cards are for sale and get a year free.

Come on ... I dare one of you to actually step up and explain your fanboyism.

There is NO comment that is safe from disagrees. I bet you ten dollars that even this comment will get disagrees.

on-topic
I'm surprised Sony hasn't announced a 40 gb GTA bundle yet for the states. 340 dollar console, plus gta would be an easy way to make huge hardware sales. Probably not quite cost effective yet I guess.

fenderputty3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

They're offering a bundle in Europe. It's assumed that a similar bundle will be offered in the states but nothing has been confirmed yet. I agree with you though. They should do this. If they don't, I feel as though they are passing up on a good opportunity.

Actually, your pretty much buying GTA 4 for only 10 bucks, not losing 10 bucks..

hades073652d ago

Along with this offer if MS was willing to give away the first part of the DLC then it would be a hard bundle to beat. Not only would their be alot more downloads for the DLC but it would work as a form of advertising for the exclusive DLC to the average consumer who doesn't even know about it.

Science_NERD3652d ago

Only complete morons would fall for this one. Why would anyone in their right mind blow $300 on a garbage system, just to get a gta4 game for 10 dollars? Youre better off going to ebgames and trading 3 games for gta than you are buying an xbox, save yourself the $300 and embarassment and just buy a ps3, or trade in your old games for gta for whatever system you may have,

Its $349.99 for a Xbox 360 Premium and $59.99 for GTA4...which is $409.98.

Its $399.99 for a 40GB PS3 with GTA4 (rumored)

Come on sony do this...and you won!

t-0_ot-3652d ago

"which is $409.98." okay.. now subtract $50.. That equals 359.98.
Why subtract $50? Well, because with that deal then that means that GTA4 is only $10.

craymoogy3652d ago

you can now get an HD-DVD extension for 50 bucks

HD-DVD * 360 Premium * GTA 4 = Awesome for MS.
Blu-ray * ps3 40 gigs * GTA 4 = Awesome for Sony.

Two awesome things cannot coexist.

I don't care. I have both 360 and ps3. I'll get this game on ps3.

Here it is, folks. Best Buy's (and probably Microsoft's) Grand Theft Auto IV savings kamehameha. Buy GTA IV along any version of the Xbox 360, and get a $50 gift card as a sweet bonus. If you've been one of those woulda, coulda, shoulda gamers still holding out on this generation of systems, it's probably not a bad time to make the leap. We'll keep our eyes peeled for similar deals like a PlayStation 3 equivalent offer...other than that bundle on the way to Europe.
