GTA IV will be the same price on both platforms

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 01:32 PM MDT | By Neil
Earlier this week a number of websites began writing stories claiming that the PlayStation 3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV would cost more than the Xbox 360 version in the UK. The rumor began at Videogaming247 and was based on a poster hung in the window of a branch of WH Smith.

The recommended retail price of games is set by their distributor and like all other Rockstar Games titles released in the UK, GTA IV will be handled by Gem. On its website today, Gem lists the Recommended Retail Price of GTA IV on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as being 49.99.

The RRP of a title is a guide for retailers to follow when pricing titles. It's not the price which the retailer pays for each unit (this is considerably less) and it is the retailer's decision how much to discount each title, if at all. There are hundreds of retailers in the UK which sell video games, so if it's not being sold at a fair price in your local store, try further afield.

At the time of going to press, the cheapest available price in the UK was 34.99, advertised by Amazon.co.uk for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
