Rockstar Games, after months of complete silence and a ton of rumours and leaks, finally unveiled GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition, which is essentially 3 remasters of what has been dubbed the PS2 trilogy of Grand Theft Auto Games – III, Vice City, and San Andreas. There is a palpable sense of excitement around the upcoming remasters as the older GTA games still have a devoted fanbase that continue to play the games.
Thus, remasters seem like a good idea for Rockstar and according to an online retailer, base.com, the Definitive Edition will cost players a pretty penny on next-gen consoles. According to the listing, GTA: The Trilogy Definitive Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be available for £70/USD $70, while the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch version is listed on the site with an RRP of $60/£60.
GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition will cost players USD $70 on the PS5/Xbox Series X/S
So @base_com have listed the price of “Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition”
It looks like £60rrp for PS4/Xbox one & Switch and it will cost £70 for PS5 & Xbox Series X.

Fans will remember that the new $70 price point isn’t exactly new for Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar’s parent company) as previously, games like NBA 2K21 and 2K22 have shipped at $70, and the publisher firmly believes that the community is ready for the new price point. In addition to the games coming out later this year, the games’ existing versions, including the bundle, on all digital storefronts (including PlayStation Store, Steam) will be removed – which is kind of worrying.
This essentially means that players will no longer be able to play the previous versions of the GTA PS2 trilogy – even if they are comfortable playing a slightly inferior version of the upcoming remasters. Details have been pretty scarce on the “Definitive Edition” and what exactly it means and what kind of enhancements players can expect.
While base.com has “revealed” these prices and opened up pre-orders, they seem to also be the first ones to have opened up pre-orders for Marvel’s Wolverine, that doesn’t have an announced release date yet. So, there is the possibility that the information could be a little inaccurate. Rockstar has confirmed that the games will receive visual improvements as well as “gameplay enhancements” in line with modern games, which sounds pretty vague. Rockstar will likely divulge more as we head towards the 20th Anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, and hopefully, the publisher releases some concrete information soon.
