Hollow gesture. Should be the other way around; if you have the original games you should get the definitive edition free or at least heavily discounted. Most people probably already own the original trilogy. I bought it on steam years ago for around Β£5.

Not counting the state of the game, Rockstar Launcher and launch problems the fact they removed the OG trilogy from stores so people would buy the DE instead is also shameful. Can’t remember being this disappointed, unfortunately it seems to be the norm nowadays. Gaming is fun, right?


just wait till they see how they screwed up with the DE and will need to do damage control from the mess that the company they outsourced to do the work has made. but many companies do the same and some even have the courage to admit they messed up its rare but they have done it
