JAPAN: GTAIV goes budget

Rockstar’s next-gen opus Grand Theft Auto IV is getting the budget treatment in Japan with news that the Capcom published title is to be ushered in to the PlayStation Best discount range.

Kotaku reports that that the new version will be released on August 27th and will cost YEN 3,900 – around 24.

The GTA series, which alongside titles such as Halo is in many ways the very essence of Western gaming, has never traditionally performed well in the East.

However, GTAIV was the title that seemed to reverse that trend. Upon its release last October it managed to outpace rival debutant LittleBigPlanet, with sales bettering Sony’s title by a ratio of 3:1.
