Well-deserved for GTA, given all the free DLC that has been released over the years.

GTAV’s still barely ever spent much time on my PS4’s hard drive. Fun multiplayer with the right people and right game modes but the story mode still just feels nasty and padded. No like.

It just goes to show that some games will always stay relevant if they’re made available to play on modern consoles. I doubt GTA V would still be enjoying this level of sales success if it was only playable on PS3 or Xbox 360 in 2018. It was a missed opportunity for story DLC though, hopefully that doesn’t become a trend for future Rockstar games.

Still no last week PlayStation Store update post. Come on, blog staff, do your job.

i might be the only one that still doesn’t have it

I don’t either!

Don’t have it. By ‘it’ I mean GTA V. But I will someday.

That’s impressive for Firewall considering it was released at the very end of August. Still waiting for my copy but I’ve heard it’s great fun.

True, and I lot of people may have gone for the aim controller bundle. So less digital sales.

This is what happens when the PS blog staff completely forgets to mention August’s biggest and bestest release, Yakuza Kiwami 2. All those poor souls buying GTA V because they just didn’t know they could spend their money on quality gaming content …

(JK, I think GTA V deserves its critical and continued commercial success, and I think that a “notable releases for the last week of August” wouldn’t have made much difference in sales numbers. Still, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is great and could have used that promotion.)
