    The GTA IV thread PRICE SPECULATION ONLY

    *********************
    I'm disapointed that so many of you went on and pretty much ruined the purpose of this thread by bragging on about how good/bad the game is and any other random and pointless bits of your life. I'm about to ask a mod if he/she could clean this up, but there'd be a lot of posts to delete. if you want to chat ****, start your own thread.

    *************************

    I've found it hard to keep track of where places have this game available and for how much, so i thought we could work on updating the prices in this thread.

    personally im after the xbox 360 version but feel free to post prices for the ps3
    up to now i believe the prices are as follows (high street, for cardiff anyway)
    HMV : £45-----hmv cardiff are sold out, but they were selling at £49.99
    Game £50!! ----- at merry hill £45
    Gamestation £45
    woolworths £39.99
    Tesco £45 --- cardiff - sold out
    Asda £39.99 ---possibly £37? --- cardiff - sold out
    Zavvi £45?
    Blockbusters £39.99 (cardiff specific: sold out, taking pre-orders for next batch arriving end of next week?)

    these are the prices i obtained from phoning around. A lot of the time the CS told me the prices could change, usually lowering the price rather than making it higher.

    HMV is open at midnight, so are the main supermarkets, the other stores open around 8-9am. note, this doesn't apply to all hmv stores, check locally first if you're store isn't that big


    PLEASE NOTE : some game stores have told me they will be very strict on id-ing people who look under 30. Don't forget an ID

    this thread is purely for speculating prices, i don't want any bloody comments about how good or rubbish it is. I will, and urge anyone else, to report those who do.

    cant you go to tesco and as about the price promise and wouldn't they beat the cheapest price you find?

    This isn't a deal though... it should be in Misc or Deal Requests...

    An advert in the paper said Asda are doing it for £37 from Midnight instore.

    Found it on ebay for £27 delivered but takes 7-14 days. OK for me though :-)

    That'll be from HK though so could get hit with customs which is not so much the money but the delay, last time customs stopped something of mine they took 6 weeks to forward it on.

    FYI the 360 version is region locked if you think you've spotted a bargain from the USA etc

    think i'll go asda 2nite around 11pm-ish for my weekly shop and pick this up on the way out

    Just called my local ASDA .. they said they selling from 1 minute past midnight but dont have a price yet ... and they have 50 of them ... wonder what time i should go down ..?

    Col ..

    As early as you can be bothered. I'm gonna head down to my local Asda (Earley) for between 10 and 11 I think. I'll take my DS so it won't be such a bad wait.

    i can't figure out whether to wait and hope the price drops or just get the game at asda for hopefully £37 or at worse £39

    Can someone help me round up the Xbox 360 hardware bundle deals?

    So far I know of Woolworths selling the Premium console with GTA for £199. (Play.com also)

    Aparently it's better on the PS3, if you have a choice. Much reduced loading times and far better draw distance. Must gall MS, considering all the money they threw at the developers to give the 360 extra content

    I work at asda and the 360 version is deffo £37

    Game Merry hill £45

    its not up 2 much anyways i was let down by it

    SuperEd

    movietyme.com/cat…ffb
    states £31.99 which isnt bad and states region free for ps3

    Not so much better, but a wee bit smoother than the 360 version.

    Asda it is then.

    got mine today :-) ASDA online.

    You havent actually got it right now though surely?

    I pre ordered mine at shopto a few days ago but it hasnt gone from the pre order bit yet, does anyone know if ill get it tomorrow or not?

    Not all HMVs are opening at midnight. The one in Northampton isnt, but it is opening at 8am which is ealier than usual

    oh mine has gone to processing now, cool!!!!

    £37.99

    Tesco are doing it for £45 (there was a advert in the news paper).

    Probably depends which Asda store you goto as well. When COD4 came out I went to get it on Release day from a 24 hour store at 8:30am and they didnt have any out!! They said they were all still waiting to be unpacked and I would have to come back later!!

    Game posted mine out on Friday at 4pm so should be here tomorrow...

    I preordered mine from gameplay for £34.99 delivered ....cant wait until tomorrow !

    I'm off to Castlepoint in morning... that gives me the choice of Sainsburys, Asda, WH Smiths and Zavvi... I'll be really annoyed if they've all sold out.

    PCWorld - Scans in @ £49.99. There is a customer offer in Eclipse for £39.99 though. So mention that!

    Ordered from Play last week, about £32 after 5% discount code and Quidco (when bought with PGR4).

    Currys in Solihull (the new one on the corner of Stratford Road and Marshall Lake Road) are opening at midnight for one hour for GTA IV - they are charging £39.99 tonight and £49.99 tommorow - they have about 20 of each in stock. Obviously they price match though so if it is cheaper anywhere else tell them.

    According to the guy in there most Currys were going to open at midnight but the company hasn't got enough stock so its only the Solihull store in the midlands anyway.

    :roll:
    Let me guess what console you have?
    :roll:
    You HAVE to install the game on the PS3 (ironic being a CONSOLE 'n' all), this installation helps with draw distance and load times.
    However, you have the option to also install part of the game onto the 360 in order to help with the same problems... bringing them on par.
    And MS/360 will still be getting the extra content, as promised - so that point is quite irrelevant. I also suggest you research into what deal was struck, as MS gave them an advance, they didnt simply pay them all that money. Depending on how many extra content packages they sell.

    just went into my local blockbuster, in crossgates leeds, they are staying open until 1 am tonight and are still accepting pre orders. £39.99 but comes with a £5 voucher off any game priced £20+ plus a free rental

    I went to ASDA yesterday, they scanned the product and it was £34 for the 360, or £38 for the ps3

    Wrong

    Great post, don't evaluate on that then.

    Shopto: order dispatched, should be with me in the morning!!!

    Woohoo.

    'Will definately' would have been better than 'should' though.

    Yes i have the game now. Delivered this morning. I did pre-order it in like, August!!

    can anyone tell me if there will be a limit to the amount of copies you have from asda, i ask because i have to get one for my mate who is on nights

    Paid £19.98 for mine...
    Used the Lovefilm deal to get a £20 dvd.co.uk voucher. So ordered it from there and used the code they sent.

    They have it in stock and ordered yesterday. got confirmation this morning that it has been dispatched.

    Bargain! Now lets hope for Royal Mail to be on form (for once!)

    ok. heres an elaboration.

    You are wrong. There is no install at all on the 360. Kotaku said that the xbox suffers slight more from popup because of this.

    I suspectby the time i can get to any store - 5pm tomorrow - there will be none left anywhere

    I read that also, it seems the PS3 version has a slightly better draw distance and a bit less loading time, while the Xbox 360 version has better colour and seems to run at a higher resolution. (IGN's video review).
    I'm going for the Xbox 360 version for the Achievements and the 360's exclusive extra missions etc. in the Autumn - plus most of my friends are going to be playing the multi-player over Xbox Live.
    The game looks fantastic on both formats to be honest, I'm just counting down the hours. :viking:
