The choice has come to purchase Grand Theft Auto V on PS4, or Xbox One, with a digital download price versus a retail disc option at the likes of GAME UK. In the United States this might be a comparison with the likes of GameStop, but today we wanted to see how the GTA V PS4 digital price found on the PlayStation Store compared to the UK price at GAME.
If you head online to the PlayStation Network Entertainment Store you will see GTA V for PS4 costs $59.99 to download. On the UK PS Store, you can expect to pay £54.99 for the digital version on PlayStation 4.
GAME UK is selling GTA V for £49.99 on both the PS4 and Xbox One, which includes a bonus of $1,000,000 in-game cash that can also be attained with the digital download. The price difference isn’t as much as we’ve seen with other game launches, so in a nutshell you will be paying an extra £5 for the PSN download when compared to a retail boxed version at GAME UK.
Benefits of digital Vs retail – chances are, most of Product Reviews readers will already know exactly the option they will choose between a download or retail box. One of the PR team always goes for digital downloads, as they have two PS4 consoles and can use the same game on both systems. This is cheaper than buying retail, although on some occasions they opt for a boxed version when a good deal arrives at the likes of Asda, Tesco, or Sainsbury’s.
Why do you prefer boxed or digital versions of a game? In relation to Grand Theft Auto V for PS4, the difference in digital price versus disc is tiny, so feel free to leave a comment explaining the option you went for and exactly why you made that choice.
We know a few of our readers would like to see digital prices lower than boxed versions, although this isn’t the case right now. You can see the GTA V price at Asda and Tesco within this article that reveals prices starting from £40 for new console platforms.
