Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 Marked “Free” on PSN Store by Mistake

Looks like Electronic Arts isn’t the only one making pricing mistakes today. Sony Computer Entertainment put Grand Theft Auto V on the North American PS4 PSN store marking it as “free.” (Grand Theft Auto V, PS4)

Do you think if you bought it while it said "free" they would honor it?
Abriael  +   354d ago
Nope, mostly 'cause you can't.

If you could, the PSN is known for honoring purchases made due to mistakes.

Who every wants the games already has it. This would just take up HDD space. Not like you can sell it.

I wanted the game very much but decided to wait for the PS4 version (I thought it would be available earlier mind you). I still haven't played the game as I want a fresh experience when I do.

Angeljuice cool story bro

Yea I never bothered getting it because I had other stuff to play at the time. Now I have a PS4 and will probably end up getting it

This is a prime example of just how good value PS+ is giving away GTA V on PS4.

I can never tell if your trolling is intentional or not.

Sigh...back in the "open zone" days, there were so many brilliant intentional trolls.

Haha, I remember the Open Zone.

Those were the days where if you were bored and in need of entertainment, just take a gander at the Open Zone.

SuperBlur  +   353d ago
its the video that is free tho

all video trailers on psn are labelled as free
ZombieKiller  +   353d ago
Get it while it's hot! Haha

As much as I am against preordering digitally (come on, will they run out of copies or something?!)I am buying this one digital
a.) So I don't have to get my lazy ass off the couch to pop in the disc to my most played game

-and I'm preordering it because I'm so damn excited for it, I wanna stare at the sale.

Lol, I know you guys probably will disagree, but looking past the glitches, looking past R* and the greed/want for money GTA V, to me, is the best GTA so far. I have a crew of 18 that love to play online everyday, and since we are a fairly close crew with some mature gamers, we really enjoy not only each others "in-game" company, but also the crazy awesome world that is ever changing, and filled with so much already. I hope they keep updating this game for the next 5 years as I will be playing it for that long! Glad to see a PS4 version coming!

You can't buy it or preorder it on PSN yet. The free is referring to the the preview video of the game.

Such a tease...
Codewow  +   354d ago
Surprised the burst of word of mouth didn't cause the PSN servers to explode in a fiery glory from people trying to get it free.

I tried already this morning, it came up with an error message, I was like dang it.
jnemesh  +   354d ago
Isn't there supposed to be some sort of "upgrade pricing" for those that bought GTA V digitally on PS3? I seem to remember hearing something like that when the game was first announced on PS4, but haven't heard anything about it since...
KwietStorm  +   354d ago
Haven't read anything about that, and I wouldn't expect it either.

Then you heard wrong. Neither Sony or Rockstar have announced a release date, a price point or an upgrade option.

This game will come out for $59.99 and I will buy it day one! I'll import my Xbox 360 progress and continue wrecking havoc online on PS4!
SonyWarrior  +   353d ago
yea its going to be worth the $60 price look at the population increase so much more traffic just like in real life LA.. Plus upgraded textures resolution smooth game play... fast load times. The list goes on
SuperBlunt  +   354d ago
I thought it was funny. Kinda cruel but funny

You know when EA accidently was charging for demos (which anyone who didn't know it was an accident is absolutely stupid) on the X1 this site when absolutely bonkers, calling EA and MS evil, uncaring, thieves.

Now it happens on the PS4 and instead of claiming bait and switch, and that Sony is misleading its consumers. Its all fun and games.

I mention it to point out the hypocrisy of the people on this site.

OT: I would love a game everyone knows is going to be $60 for free.

@below Up in arms that they said something was free and then changed it. How dare they!!

Someone accidently priced a demo, which we all know are free, and people act like it was done on purpose. You sir are the perfect example of the hypocrisy I'm referring to as both were CLEARLY mistakes.

One is charging and the other one is giving away for free. Why on earth will people be up and arms about that. It's common sense that it was an error where as in MS and EA's case the price for the demo was coincidently 5.00$
Eonjay  +   354d ago
The EA error they were referring to today was charging $300.00 for BF4 DLC on Xbox Live. Later it was lowered to $200.00. So I think you can understand the different reactions.

SilentNegotiator  +   354d ago
Oh please, 99% of the comments were aimed at EA, not Microsoft. What a pathetic, desperate attempt at a "teh hypocrizyz!!" call out.

Would make for an excellent PS+ title.
Angeljuice  +   353d ago
Lol @ disagrees, it's not even an opinion, it WOULD make a great free PS+ title. The only people who could possibly disagree would be R* and jealous/bitter Xbox One owners.

It would also make a great free game on gold btw.

Gtav will out sell tlour just counting ps4 sales. Im rebuying gtav, i dont know the big deal about tlou, i played it and it did not capture me, seemed over-rated and i stopped playing it. Well im rebuying it for ps4, so ill give it a second try.
Bathyj  +   354d ago
Too many 1's and 0's floating around on the internet. Every now and then they crash into each other and things like this happen.
GeofferyPeterson  +   354d ago
Agreed, they need to add 2, 3, and 4 into the mix.
Bathyj  +   354d ago
Thats crazy talk.
SilentNegotiator  +   354d ago
Don't blame the 1's and 0's. It was probably some drooling intern.
FayZ_  +   353d ago
psn - where mistakes are always made.

zeeman  +   353d ago
I will be getting this for PS4 and most likely digital. I need to sell off my ps3 version though.
uth11  +   353d ago
I saw this when I logged into the store.

In my mind I decided they couldn't be referring to the game, they must mean that watching the trailer is free :)
tweet75  +   353d ago
sony never did say they will be charging for it
