Late last month, reports confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC would be getting delayed not just for the first time, but for the third time. Originally slated to hit stores in November together with the PS4 and Xbox One versions, Rockstar Games used some vintage positive scripting in explaining why the PC version would be pushed back to January, and then to March 24 – it wanted to make sure PC gamers got the best gaming experience possible. Now, it looks like Rockstar Games is claiming that it wants the PC port to be “as polished as possible” before it touches down, hence the GTA 5 PC release getting moved to April 14.
Why are we mentioning GTA 5 for PC in an article that otherwise focuses on PS4 games? Since PC gamers are still waiting for a chance to return to San Andreas and play as three different characters, we’ve noticed that the PS4 version of GTA 5 is now selling a bit cheaper on several retail sites, including Amazon. Yes, it’s been four months alright since GTA 5 for PS4 got released, and we shall now tell you how low it costs on Amazon, while also bringing you some other PS4 game deals courtesy of the retailer.
Right now, you can get yourself a copy of GTA 5 for PS4 on Amazon for only $52.88, which isn’t much of a price cut off the original $59.99 price, but one of the lowest amounts you can pay for this blockbuster title’s PS4 version. But if you’d rather wait until it gets even cheaper, then that’s fine – Amazon has several other new and popular titles selling for much less. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is now selling for $38.96, while Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor can be yours for $41.71. All of these prices are discounts off the original price tag of $59.99.
Now, The Last of Us Remastered isn’t exactly a new title in the truest sense, but it is one of the more popular Sony console exclusives out there, especially in re-mastered form. Original pricing was $49.99, but Amazon will let you buy this game for $41.67, or $8.32 off full retail. There’s also Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, an older, yet still hot title previously sold for $39.99, but now available for $5 off, or for $34.99.
And while it’s selling for only three cents off, you might also be interested in Minecraft, which Amazon is offering for $19.96 – considering most PS4 games cost $59.99 or $49.99, you can consider that price a deal in itself.
We’ve enumerated a good number of well-loved titles for the PS4, but we’re not quite through running down those deals and helping you save money the next time you head to Amazon and buy a new PS4 game. Last, but not the least for today’s recap is one of the bigger discounts we were able to see among popular titles – Watch Dogs for PS4, which is selling for $24.12. That’s more than 50 percent off the previous price of $49.99, and a very sweet price indeed for one of 2014’s higher-profile debuts.
