    That DLC is for GTA Online and completely optional gamewise. Which is making this version seem more and more unnecessary unless there is Single player content, which has already been dismissed.

    Wait there was DLC? I thought there was only money packs for online.

    They are at over 90 million copies shipped, and it is still consistently one of the best selling games 5 years after release. 4 sucked, but V is awesome.

    I love the GTA series and I have since the first one I played (which was the first one.) But it’s starting to look like Rockstar is in a bit of a hole here. They seem to be only focused on GTA 5 and I am really wishing for a spin off game like the old days.

    All GTA 5 DLC is free, so if all this contains is "the base game and 4 years worth of DLC" it seems completely pointless.

    Just the base game and starting pack on Online - COD has been doing the DLC edition stuff for full price ages ago.

    Technically GTA Online killed GTA V. It was pretty good, but lacked stuff to do on the side. But now that will never happen because Take Two only cares about raking in that online money.

    This is just an excuse as R* really doesn't want to reduce the price of the game. That is all.

    GTAV could of being great but they scaled back with alot of things that could of made this the new generation San Andreas, with a gym sitting there unusable, waiting years for a jetpack, stores closed off completely or un-robbable till active online, story is pretty generic, no gang turf wars etc. Online is fun for alittle while then becomes boring too as most (not all) missions online are to same old repetition or just a grind kinda game that's taken the fun away.

    So far it really seems as anyone that ever wanted a sequel of sorts or in similar vain as San Andreas, Saints Row 2 is the only one that comes close, with lots of activities to do out of the story within the sandbox & not just a empty canvas as GTAV with all that terrain only to be used for story missions and even if that sometimes if not only for online. SR2 aint without it's faults too but it's got that over the top fun that made GTA San Andreas really fun, not sure if R* will ever capture that feeling again (either will Volition with the zany out there Saints games these days, Agents of Chaos with out the Saints name is what it's turning into since i bet they did'nt know how to continue after that ending of Saints Row)

    END Rant here

    Not exactly DLC, but 5 had the Lost & Damned and Gay Tony stand alone expansions.

    Edit: sorry, that was 4

    They're trying to remedy the dwindling player base by making it feasible for new players to join in but from what I've heard the starter pack only gets you in so far and is missing some key things to get you started. Since they also haven't fixed the greater hacking issue on PC and it regularly goes on sale there, it's unlikely to get a PC version... A Switch version would be neat if only because it would be purely new accounts with access to all the major DLC, much of which screws with the balance immensely.

    I really lost interest when Rockstar started to make sharks cards a thing. Good thing I have a modded account though :^)

    So just the base game with a free $1.2m to start with? That’s like one car...

    This sounds good for someone who did not get it before. I still have to get it for the Xbone or the Ps4 so now might be the time, especially with so many older copies flying around.

    Also, unpopular opinion i know, but have followed the series pretty much from the 1st game and all of them are great except for 4, which i thought was the worst and i still cannot understand how people get their knickers in a twist with San Andreas too. I mean its fine, but the GTA series is not about the micromanagement etc. Somebody said 5 sucks because of a missing gym etc. If i wanted to play a life sim, i would play sims. Driving, shooting, doing whatever you want is the important part of the GTA core and 5 provides this in spades along with heists and cool characters.

    There's so much coming to the switch, i wouldn't be surprised if they port it to switch (even if the graphics got dumped down and it runs at 30fps it would still be fun) :toot:

    game wasnt bad at all on ps3 and switch is abit more powerful than wiiu and wiiu was abit more powerful than ps3 so yeah they can make a decent looking game between ps3 and ps4 on the switch if they wanted to, but i dont think they will tough.

    LOL to all the nintendo fans who are begging for it to come to the switch....... irony is funny when this is one of the titles they'd always quote for being crap, violent, blood n gore when defending the usual same old nintendo recycled titles.

    how can you all slate it yet be crying for it to come, must mean really you hate it because R* rarely bring its GTA titles to nintendo..... because its classed as a kids toy.

    Can you show me anyone ever saying that, because I've been gaming since the 80's and lurking here for years and I've never seen one person say anything of the sort.

    Backup your crap with facts, not just baseless hyperbolic allegations or shut the hell up for once.
