The feeling when you finally bought the thing you wanted is the excitement that fills the meter of joy quickly! And these hands can’t wait to rip the plastic covering the box or DVD case of my favorite games. Seeing videos from famous Youtubers and their reaction when they open that collector’s edition of HALO 5 or other things they consider to be worth it. Most of the people usually make unboxing feature videos or write up an article of their moment of revealing the precious item inside the box. Now, I will be one of those gamers who is filled with happiness and excitement to feature an unboxing article of the recently well-critiqued and possibly the 2015 Game of the Year, Grand Theft Auto V or also known as GTAV. Most of my friends bought GTAV through Steam and I never saw any pictures of them having a physical copy. Now, my dear friends and readers, let me take the honors of doing an unboxing article of GTAV. This will be a short one.
To give you a summary of the game:
“When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber, and a terrifying psychopath f ind themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.” (Source: Grand Theft Auto V summary behind the box)
We’re back in SAN ANDREAS! And this is our first Unboxing article in Sirus Gaming!
Let’s start with the main cover art box of the game. Rockstar Games, the studio behind the astonishing open-world sandbox title, still retains the well-known comic-art that features main characters of the game and also the famous Grand Theft Auto logo. The game has 7 discs total because of the mammoth 60GB size. Most games nowadays require a minimum of 25GB to 60GB hard drive space and this is because of the considered next-generation graphics and how big the engine is used in the game.
The physical copy of Grand Theft Auto V includes the well designed DVD case featuring images of the main protagonists and the 7 DVD discs that you need to install the massive GTAV. It also includes a black box with the GTAV logo and inside of this is a pre-order bonus of $1,000,000 in game (500k online / 500k story mode) flyer, the manual with the game key, and most importantly the big map of Los Santos. I actually didn’t expect that there would be a big map of the whole Los Santos since this is just a standard edition copy. Just a side note, the game key is actual not a Steam key but for the Rockstar Social Club. Pretty much, this is all I can show since it’s only a standard edition of the game.
The physical copy was released 3 days after its actual release on April 14 since according to iTech their shipment was delayed due to some unknown reasons. And as for the infamous Datablitz, they said that the provincial cities was delayed for more than 3 days due to some issues with their supplier. Waiting for the physical copy was totally worth it and this baby will be part of my collection of big DVD boxes.
