Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 Marked “Free” on PSN Store by Mistake

Looks like Electronic Arts isn’t the only one making pricing mistakes today. Sony Computer Entertainment put Grand Theft Auto V on the North American PS4 PSN store marking it as “free” as you can see in the picture at the bottom of this post.

Before you scramble to take advantage of the mistake, unfortunately clicking on it only returns a “The content cannot be selected at this time” result. Looking for the game on the web store returns the correct $59.99 price.

Someone at Sony probably messed up a checkbox that caused the PSN store to use the demo template, as indicated by the “Check it Out!” message instead of “Pre-Order Now”

The mistake is most probably bound to be addressed soon enough.

        Everybody would’ve been turning on they’re PS4s soon as this got leaked. Im guessing we’re about to get a release date being that the game is now in the Ps store

      You can’t Ive been trying LOL all it does it send you to the page with a watch icon.

  • SkinnyAssGamer

    Yep its official. Or its been official. Sony cares about the gamers they were going to give us a free game from last gen. While EA and Microsoft wanted to charge us $5 for a demon and $199 for DLC for BF4. Yep Sony cares more about the gamers and wants to offer us a bigger bang for our buck on PlayStation

    • Dan

    • Bliss Seeker

      While EA and Microsoft wanted to charge us $5 for a demon

      You mean demo? haha

    Actually… It is marked “free” because it is a video of the PS4 version of the game, and you can download it for free. Not because the game is for free. The misprint is not the price, but the “type of content”. It is apparent because of the video attached to it.

  • Abrar Auditore Jahin

    Its still Free xD! I just checked it!

  • Jan Compaf

    it should be FREE since i already have GTA5 on PS3 and all i need is the online part anyway or R* should just sell the Online part for like maximum 30$

  • Why So Serious?

    I wish they would snatch this for PS Plus but it ain’t happening any time soon.. I haven’t played it yet and I totally need to.

  • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

    Looks like its just a video for it which would be free so looks more like someone trying to make a story out of nothing.
