There is a slight downside that comes with the physical release though as it doesn't currently have an exact release date. All we know from Rockstar is that GTA 5's disc version on PS5 and Xbox Series X will be out in April.

It's a shame that this hasn't been locked down to a specific date yet as not all players will be keen to commit to a digital purchase of the game. It's part of an ongoing debate of whether it's better to buy your games on disc or via digital marketplaces.

We also have no idea of what the cost might be for GTA 5 on next-gen systems. Despite a lengthy announcement regarding the release and content that is coming, Rockstar have failed to offer a price point for the game.
