GTA 5 PS3 bundle priced ahead of UK release

Sony has confirmed the GTA 5 PS3 bundle price ahead of the game’s eagerly awaited release date, with the Grand Theft Auto themed deal to set wannabe owners back £250.

Pairing a copy of the game with a new Super Slim PS3 console, the GTA 5 PS3 bundle will be available on the September 17 GTA 5 release date. Despite landing just a few weeks earlier, the latest PS3 bundle deal is just £100 cheaper than the £349 PS4 price that was recently confirmed by Sony.

In an effort to further tempt gamers, adopters of the GTA 5 PS3 bundle will also benefit from a GTA 5 themed Pulse Elite Edition headset and custom audio mode.

“The custom Grand Theft Auto V audio mode for Pulse – Elite Edition takes full advantage of the BassImpact technology embedded in the Pulse – Elite Edition headset to provide the ultimate Grand Theft Auto V experience,” an official Sony spokesperson stated. “This exclusive mode enhances the game’s most epic moments like car crashes, explosions and more.”

With the bundle’s price now set at a penny shy of £250, the GTA 5 PS3 partnership looks set to offer gamers some dual-purpose shopping convenience rather than any money saving benefits.

While the same 500GB PS3 model can be snapped up for just under £200 on its own, the GTA 5 game will be available for no more than £50 from a number of retailers meaning the bundle deal might not be the best deal for some.
