While most gamers were disappointed that GTA V was not shown at this year’s E3 expo, publishers Take Two are convinced that high demand for GTA V will see them get through all potential criticisms. More specifically, Take Two also believe that sales of the game will not be affected by the launch of next-generation PS4 and Xbox One consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
GTA V is not coming to these next-gen consoles of course, a fact that still surprises many gamers considering the prospect of how amazing GTA V would be on next-gen hardware. Having said that, the game is still looking unbelievable on current-generation hardware and Take-Two has defended the move to just release on Xbox 360 and PS3 at launch.
To spite the fact that GTA V was not shown at E3, there was a GTA V announcement. Sony revealed at E3 that they'll be bundling Grand Theft Auto V with the PS3. This bundle will be launching alongside the game itself this September. The GTA V PS3 bundle includes a 500GB PlayStation 3, a Blu-ray copy of Grand Theft Auto V and a 30-day PlayStation Plus trial membership. This package is priced at $299.99.
Sony and Rockstar also collaborated on a Grand Theft Auto V Pulse - Elite Edition headset. This headset, priced at $179.99, is green and black with the GTA V logo on each headphone. A custom audio mode can be downloaded for free to enhance the explosions, car crashes and other key sounds in GTA V.
GTA V, the PS3 bundle, and headset will all be available on September 17th. Check out the headset below and, as always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
