Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC priced Rs 2,499 in India

In a surprised move, Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC has been priced at Rs 2,499 for India.

Why is this a surprise? Well, because its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto 4, launched at just Rs 499. Granted that that was in 2008, but this price is also significantly higher than other Rockstar PC releases in India. For instance, Max Payne 3 launched at Rs 999 on PC, and that was a simultaneous launch alongside consoles.

In fact, most PC games from distributor E-xpress Interactive tend to be priced below Rs 2,000. That includes games from Ubisoft, Warner Bros, Square Enix, and even 2K, which along with Rockstar, falls under the Take-Two banner. The exceptions are games from the likes of Bethesda and Namco, which are fully imported.

The Xbox One and PS4 versions had been up for preorder for a while, priced Rs 3,499, and those prices have remained unchanged.

We should mention that these prices haven’t been officially announced by Rockstar or E-xpress, but are listed on Games The Shop’s website, but the retailer is owned by E-xpress, so these prices are probably accurate.

Grand Theft Auto 5 released on PS3 and Xbox 360 last year (check out our review), and is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year.

  11. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  21. Good post. I learn something tougher on different blogs everyday. It’s going to all the time be stimulating to learn content from other writers and apply a bit something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

  22. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing talents and also with the structure in your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it your self? Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

  23. obviously like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll surely come again again.

  24. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  25. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  26. I am extremely inspired together with your writing abilities as smartly as with the layout for your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way stay up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to peer a nice weblog like this one these days..

  27. One other issue is that if you are in a situation where you don’t have a cosigner then you may actually want to try to exhaust all of your educational funding options. You can get many funds and other scholarships or grants that will offer you funding that can help with school expenses. Thank you for the post.

  28. One more thing. I do believe that there are lots of travel insurance web sites of respectable companies that allow you to enter your holiday details and obtain you the quotes. You can also purchase your international travel insurance policy online by using your credit card. All you should do is always to enter the travel details and you can start to see the plans side-by-side. Merely find the package that suits your financial budget and needs and then use your bank credit card to buy it. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to take a look for a trustworthy company regarding international travel cover. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  29. I like this web site very much, Its a really nice situation to read and incur information. “Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.” by Ludwig Wittgenstein.

  30. You could certainly see your skills in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times follow your heart.
