Gamers Spending $500 to Get Grand Theft Auto V Early

Posted 2013/09/13 by Treezy in Gaming


Getting a game early sometimes is a real nice treat. Sometimes gamers are willing to pay a little extra just to get the game a little early before everyone else. Of course there is a difference between just a little extra and a down right insane amount.

Grand Theft Auto V is without a doubt the most highly anticipated game this year. It’s obvious that there are people out there who just can’t wait to get their hands on the game. My question is, just how much money would you be willing to spend just to get a game before anyone else?

Apparently there are people out there who would blow $500 for a regular copy of Grand Theft Auto V! While there are certain scenarios where I could see people doing this (like getting the game months in advance), this is the amount some people have spent just to get the game on Saturday September 14, 2013! A whole two days before the whole world will get to wait outside at a midnight launch and then proceed to go home and play the game. Think it’s ludicrous? Check out the sold listings here and here to see for yourself.

What makes me laugh the most is that there are rare special editions and console bundles with GTA V selling at a lower price than that.

How much extra would you be willing to spend on a game just to get it early? Let us know below.
