[Help Wanted] GTA Director's Cut Big Box PC

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I've been trying for ages to get a GTA 1 Director's Cut for PC (big box version). Found some on Amazon, but always incomplete (no box, manual, etc). Does anybody knows where to find this edition? I really would appreciate some help.

 

It looks like this:

 

Grand Theft Auto: Director's Cut - PC                   71NWEJHW17L.gif

                                          

                                          Front Cover                                                                                                                   Back

Hi,

 

I saw it once on a French Craigslist alike website back when i started my gta [only pc] collection. I asked the seller to put it aside for a couple of weeks. I forgot about it and 3 weeks later when realising it was that rare, he sold it to another buyer for only 40€!  

I never saw it again with the box, no videos, on amazon like you said, ebay, nothing. I emailed the gta series videos crew and they didn't know the box existed, thought the director's cut was sold without -like the ps1 version...

 

I can tell you it was only released in the us, so for me in France i don't think i'll ever come across it again, i still browse from time to time the us Ebay but without much hope...

 

The good thing to remember is that i got a perfect Gta 3 Australian edition with the box from the same seller...

ps: the box is not the size of a 'classic' pc big box. It is more the size of the Vice City soundtrack. 

I don't know why the pictures are this size.

Yeah unfortunately this edition is so rare that even images are hard to find. I still look for it sometimes, but only saw one for sale about 3 years ago - and never again. Hope I can get it someday lol

You might find ut on ebay. Ebays got your all gaming needs, plus most sellers there ship worldwide whereas amazon ships us/uk only.

I can confirm that I've never even seen it on eBay.

pic?

 

Edit: found one that sold, there's no f*cking way that sold before I even saw it because I have it as a saved search. Someone must've REALLY wanted it. Looks like it sold like two minutes after it was posted, lmao.

I saw one for sale on eBay in 2017 for around €50. I didn't buy it at the time because I already had GTA 1 and GTA London big boxes complete, so I felt that I didn't need it. Never knew it was so rare though.

It's not so rare, it is just more common on USA. I think a GTA 1 Limited Edition (a complete version, including soundtrack disc) is harder to find. Took me 4 years to find a copy.

Sorry for the late reply, I do get emails but they're always a day late unless I'm hogging eBay on my phone 24/7, and when I do, I eventually get a visual notification of a blue dot to the right of the saved search whenever a new one is available.

 

Good luck with finding this game though. I've been on the hunt for GTA London and Director's Cut too so I can complete my big box GTA collection. They're both equally difficult to find and it looks like people really want them. Like again, someone bought the copy I sent literally two minutes after it was listed. At this point it's about whether you're on at the right time or not.

There are two London game on the eBay now, which are for sale. I think not so really hard to find one.

Edit - Sorry, EUR version. I don't mind  about USA/UK/DE versions. Limited Edition is UK exclusive IIRC.

Sorry, my fault. I didn't pay attention that you are from the US and you are looking for american versions.
