Xbox One Deals: Best Buy And GameStop Offer Free 'GTA V' When You Buy New Console

Five things to know about the Xbox One X

Grand Theft Auto fans who are looking to purchase a new Xbox One console are in luck, as retailers GameStop and Best Buy have launched promotions that allow gamers to get a free copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

Grand Theft Auto V may have been released in 2013, but the open-world title is still a very popular one. In fact, the game is still the most discussed title on Twitter for 2015, with 30 million tweets talking about it.

The Best Buy and GameStop deals cover all purchases of a new Xbox One console, whether it is a standalone purchase or a bundle that comes with other free games.

In addition to the free copy of Grand Theft Auto V, buyers will also receive a Great White Shark Cash Card, which entitles them to $1.25 million worth of in-game dollars that can be spent on Grand Theft Auto Online. The cash card is worth $20 if purchased separately.

Grand Theft Auto V is described as the "biggest, most dynamic, and most diverse open world" game that has ever been created, and comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, which is the title's online play version. The game has players take on the roles of three criminals named Michael, Franklin and Trevor as they carry out various heists in Los Santos and Blaine County.

The title's online version has largely contributed to its success, but its popularity is now being challenged on Twitter by Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which ranked second on the most-discussed video games on the social network last year with 25.5 million tweets. Fallout 4, one of the most anticipated titles released last year, only gained 5.4 million tweets, but that could be because it was only released in November 2015.

Nevertheless, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online are still great games to have in any collection, and for those just buying their Xbox One consoles now, the Best Buy and GameStop offers are too good to pass up.
