So what's up with you guys and this headphones? You know there are better ones that are cheaper? Is it just for the logo? If so just buy something better and write a V with a marker, you won't see the difference anyway because you will be playing.

son, I have these headphones (not V edition of course) and they're beast.


Hopefully this V Sound mode will be available for download on the online manager.

I believe you, but you just haven't tried any better headphones. There are better alternatives and for fewer bucks. Just saying. If you add a few bucks the sound quality is a lot better. If you take the step to actually use headphones while playing PS3, then at leased make it worth it. Anyway, nothing beats a home theater, but that's off topic.

Wow, so the infamous headpones cost $179. That's more than the collectors edition of the game lol. It's not even out yet, and the bill for its full content is $329. Good money milking R*!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he mention that it also came with a sound scape, possibly referring to a soundtrack CD that comes along with it (with the in-game score)? Seems like he was reffering to the audio quality/headphone design.

Hopefully all of those new screenshots get published online soon.

There is a free download of some sort that enhances the audio for the game with the headphones.

in the bundle it says it includes:

"6 Additional games unlocked for your PS Vita™ system"

I know it's unlikely but what if this included all the past GTAs since 3??

as a vita owner that never uses it, this would be amazing.

this could be some of the "additional information" they mentioned.

http://www.gta5cheat...ndle-announced/

''Update: we have since confirmed that the headset DOES NOT come with the bundle. It must be purchased separately and is only listed on the bundle box as an additional accessory. We think it’s pretty deceptive packaging''

So this bundle is literally a PS3 with GTA V packaging. The headset is sold separately.

The bundle comes with:

- 500 GB PS3,
- a copy of the game,
- a 30 day Playstation Plus trial membership
- you also get a “custom audio mode” for GTA 5, which is meant to take full advantage of the headset (sold separately).

So unless your planning to buy a new PS3 in September, this bundle is pretty pointless. The headphones will probably be $50-$100 anyway.

Having said that, Sony did say they had more details about GTA V coming in the next few weeks. So we'll see what they announce.

For now though 360 players, this bundle is really nothing to worry about.

edit: the headphones will retail for $179. UK pricing not confirmed but i'd guess they'll be around £80-£100. - http://www.digitalsp...at-e3-2013.html

As for the console, I'm real disappointed that it is just a plain super slim in a 'GTA V Branded Box'. confused.gif


The 'GTA IV' & 'Lost & Damned' Xbox 360's were much nicer (albeit competition pieces)

Hmm I already own Turtle Beaches P11. They are pretty great, but I also really want this because its GTAV themed and it is no doubt going to give superior audio, ultimately providing a better gaming experience for all games especially V.

If I find out that PS3 mics work on the PS4 (Rumour is they won't), I may consider buying these. The only issue is the money... $179 is a huge price tag for somebody in my position.

Plus with all the PS4 games I want (20 and counting), not to mention the console itself, I need as much money as I can. As much as I love V, I don't think the tradeoff will be worth it. I could buy 3 PS4 games with that money.

How many people are actually going to buy this? With the PS4 coming out soon after. and just being $100 more dollars? They should reduce the prices of all PS3s if they hope to sell them after the PS4 is released. Same thing with Microsoft and Xbox 360s.

Sony is going to lose money. So my guess it will be really limited.

89 $ for a 500gb ps3 is still a lot...lel...considering it's 7 years old etc...and ps4 wil be out soon etc...for 399 $ etc....yeah etc

I swear to god if R* won't release a PC version and try to sell this to the PC people I will be very mad....
Now if they sold a TV along with the bundle I'd consider...lol....but no way no how I'm buying this package. I don't want to own a console anyway...I don't need that god-daamn joystick sh*t.....well maybe, JUST maybe I'll get me a PS4 at some point...the PS3 is at its end, PS4 is to be out soon and only costs 100 $ more...simple math...but I don't want GTA on a console. I want it on PC. And yeah I want it on PC so bad I wouldn't wanna play it, would it remain exclusive to consoles. Yeah it might be THE game and everything I had hoped for....but I won't compromize the experience at any cost...either all the way...or no way at all.

this bundle is a NO WAY at all scenario. This better just be a plot to throw out the last damn oldie consoles to...people...and make some last bucks.

I emailed Rockstar about this bundle. Looks like the SE/CE stuff will be available after a few months (or so wink.gif )

"The PS3 Bundle shown at E3 includes only the standard version. As for the digital content, currently, the only way to guarantee access to the digital content from the Collector’s Edition or Special Edition of the game is to pre-order or purchase those specific versions."

Hopefully this helps some people out.

What is the point in it being branded at all then?
You are paying for a cardboard box that says 'GTA V' on it.
It is exactly the same as any other PS3 console.
It doesn't contain the branded headset and contains no extras.

They could've at least made it a custom colour.

(These branded 360's sell in excess of £650 [$1,020] in auctions..)
