Fans are using Steam reviews to urge fellow gamers to buy the original GTA trilogy before Rockstar Games delists them.
Last week, after countless rumours and speculation, the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was announced. This remastered collection will include GTA 3, GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas.
As reported by Eurogamer, following the announcement of the remastered trilogy, Rockstar Games also revealed that they plan to delist the original games on digital platforms for PC and console. As it stands right now, you can buy the GTA trilogy for £16.99 on PC and £28.99 on PS4.
“To prepare for launch, we will begin removing existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week. For more information, please visit Rockstar Games Support.” Reads the post on Rockstargames.com.
So, with the original GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas being delisted this week, fans on Steam are utilising user reviews to encourage fellow gamers to buy the original trilogy before Rockstar removes them.
- “Make sure your ass owns the trilogy before it gets nuked off Steam,” wrote a user in a GTA 3 Steam review.
- “Buy this before it’s delisted in the next week,” said a fan in a Vice City Steam review.
- “Buy it before it’s removed,” said a user in a San Andreas Steam review.
The Remastered Trilogy will have improved visuals and gameplay
The GTA Remastered Trilogy is set to release later this year and will come with improved visuals and gameplay. However, there are rumours that the remastered trilogy might command an RRP of £70/$70. If true, you can see why some gamers are trying to encourage others to grab a bargain before it’s gone.
Of course, if you already own GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas digitally, you can still download them even when removed from the digital stores. However, new customers will not be able to buy them. So, unless you already own the games, they will be gone forever.
In saying that, the improvements for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition might be worth the price of admission. That said, I think it’s safe to assume that we will not be able to pick up the remastered trilogy for just £17.
