Gamers are raging over reports Grand Theft Auto 6 will cost $150
| Last updated
It's been 10 years since Rockstar gave us the last GTA and fans have been begging for a new instalment rather than just updates to GTA 5.
The developer and publisher has been hard at work trying to give us a game that is living up to the hype.
While it's unclear when we will get to finally play it, rumours have started circulating about how much it will set you back.
Dexerto reports the sixth instalment to the long-running franchise will cost $150, which is nearly $100 more than the previous game.
People couldn't believe their eyes and said they would have to start saving now if they were going to be able to afford it.
"You know inflation is outta control if GTA 6 is set to come out at $150," said one fan.
Another added: "I better be able to teleport in the game if they except me to pay 150 dollars for GTA 6."
A third said: "Me trying to comprehend why a f**king video game would cost 150 bucks."
However not everyone was convinced with the speculation.
One said: "Why is everyone running with this rumor that GTA 6 is going to cost $150? You’re out of your mind if you think they are randomly gonna sell it for DOUBLE what the standard price is of $70. Maybe a collectors edition will sell for that much. Not the base game."
When GTA V was released, it cost $59.99. There was a special edition that was priced at $79.99 and also a $150 exclusive GameStop edition.
Some believe these rumours of $150 for GTA VI would be for a similar special edition and wouldn't represent the base price.
Interestingly, Grand Theft Auto's publisher Take-Two Interactive recently revealed where they believe the benchmark should be set for the best titles.
During an earnings call with investors, CEO Strauss Zelnick said they haven't seen much push-back from consumers about AAA games costing $70.
“What we’re seeing is consumers are seeking to limit their spending by going either to the stuff they really, really care about, blockbusters, or to value, and sometimes it could be both," he said (via Kotaku).
"And the good news is, we have a bunch of blockbusters and we have a wonderful catalog.”
So, it would be pretty surprising if they jacked up the base price by double after making this statement.
