value is based on perception

rockstar knows people will pay for it at that price, therefore they charge that price

Same in Australia.

Unfortunately it's also in the most bought list.

I got the game delivered to my door on release for less than half of that.

It's 49.99 on UK Marketplace, and the cheapest its going for on Amazon is 36 with free delivery.

Why would you pay 14 extra to not have the physical disc :-/

Every new Digital game has been 49.99. It's a joke but don't be fooled into thinking people buy it, the sales of those 50 games are very very low.

It's a rip-off and considering they STILL haven't fixed the texture streaming issues they can stick it. The first patch sorted the ground textures and it all looked lovely, as soon as TU3 came along it reverted back to horrible, ugly textures and I've stopped playing it until they sort it out. I bet the digital version is no better.

Rockstar have really surprised me how slack they've been about it.

Just a thought....did you install both discs to the same storage device?
Because that can never be "fixed" since it's part of the game's design. Uninstall the Play disc.

If you're going to do anything, get a USB stick with a high read speed and put the Install disc data on that and install the Play disc to your hard drive.

No, I'm not talking about pop-in. I installed to USB stick and HDD, the game runs great just some of the texture maps refuse to load in leading to really blocky ground textures, it's especially nasty in the countryside. TU2 did fix it for me, there was a bit of pop-in on the texture maps (if you were driving at speed and slowed down) but at least they loaded properly and it was a lot more detailed, for some reason every since TU3 they disappeared and the game looks ugly again.

Try installing both disks now on the HDD. They may have switched things around lol
