    I'm still on the fence with this one, so close to just buying it on Steam.

    Maybe I will help you make the decision with this, think back and ask yourself how much you loved GTA games and how much you really enjoyed the 4th, if yes then why not ?

    Because it's cheaper to buy a million or so of those dual layer DVDs for pennies than it is to buy a million or so flash drives. It's the same reason why we might never see pc games on bluray discs.

    tl;dr

    It's not cost effective.

    Flip a coin, once its in the air and before it lands, think which way you would like it to land, whichever way you chose is the one you need to act upon.

    They would have to buy 7 times less flash drives than DVDs though

    But yea, sucks, if they gave the option of adding £4 to the price of the game if it came on flash instead of 7 DVDs, wouldn't you? I would

    I would have no problem paying a "convenience" fee if I was giving the option between a 7 disc install or 1 flash drive.

    Flash has a tendency to be unreliable, unless its manufactured carefully. I suppose they could firmware protect drives to be read-only, however I would guess that it would still cost more than a digital download version from Steam.

    I find that a peace of mind is sometimes worth a premium and with steam , your games will always remain in the same library, no matter which desktop you are on.

    Yeah, it would be cool to do some heists with the crew. What I'm looking forward to the most, are those silly over the top races(jumping from one skyscraper to another, doing loop the loops, etc. seems fun as all hell.)


    I bought it from steam on Wednesday and didn't mention anything about the 1.2 mil cash bonus. Launched steam now and apparently GTA5 does have the pre-order bonus. I just hope I got the money as well.
