But why would that justify a full price listing? Even though the game had a relatively stable price over time, you often had good deals and I can't see high demand for paying higher prices just because more stuff is already on disc. Bundles with Shark Cards also are quite common already.

If we assume this isn't just a bullshit listing, it has to include something of value. If they are making a Pro / X patch exclusive to a rerelease they would get a mighty shitstorm and deservedly so. So what would be in such a box that you can't have with the base version? Strange...

Easy - some form of currency for GTA Online, a cool exclusive car, etc.

Nah they won't be stupid enough to have a pro/x1 patch being exclusive to this package, but they will certainly offer some exclusive GTA online stuff plus stuff like the Shark Card and the likes.
Bascially a package for newcomers that are new to GTA and get a good headstart.

Also there is only the X1/PS4 PEGI and USK version listed, so no need to even speculate about the Switch.

Interesting, maybe we will get a definitive edition for PS4, Xbox (Pro and X enhancements) and a Switch version. So basically the Darks Souls and LA Noire route.

The new Rockstar works like that. It is called premium for a reason.What the game comes with will be a couple of cars and weapons, a high end safe house and some kind of business property and GTA dollars.

New Rockstar sucks.

If that means that the base version will get cheaper I'm all for it. Feel like the only person in the world who hasn't played this. I don't need any online crap.

The only interesting prospect of this for me is a Pro patch. I still haven't finished the story. If this is real, a patch would be very likely.

I really don't see this happening. If they really wanted to, they could have added it in one of the past updates. The fact they didn't make me feel it would never happen.

This is real btw.

You're kidding yourself when you think this will include DLC or anything of the sort when Rockstar is already scrambling to finish RDR2.

They already do a GTAO Beginner’s Pack on Steam, maybe that’s what it is.

Oh, I get it.

Such a shame they didn't make any SP dlc. The game would have gone from a 6 into a 9.
They were planning it at some point. But I think since they did the porting of the current gen versions internally and because GTAO took office it just meant that they kinda pushed it aside. Plus like I mentioned, GTA4's had to play a role. While they never gave specific figures for how it did, TT said that it wasn't as successful as they'd thought. So that likely made them hesitant to pull the trigger on more single player DLC given just how well GTAO is doing.

And you are kidding yourself when you think that Rockstar will just drop GTA V because RDR2 is coming out. It's still selling truckloads!

I could see it happening for a number of reasons
1) They might have wanted to wait until both enhanced consoles were out
2) Adding enhanced modes along with goodies in a re-release would encourage anyone who swapped (XBO to PS4Pro, PS4 to XB1X) to double dip
3) Adding enhanced modes means that players on the upgraded consoles will want to try them out, just bringing them online where they can spend money on microtransactions

Mentions of a Switch version...

GTA V is around 63gb in size. Won't be on Switch until the 64gb cartridges are on offer from Nintendo next year and maybe even after they go down in price even.
How do you know the Switch version has the same size as the PS4/X1 version? because I don't think so.
