GTA 5 arrived on next-gen consoles last month, well, digitally at least. The physical launch came a month or so later, and those copies are now in the wild — and they look a little odd.
At first glance, it looks like Xbox is testing a new style of box art, with a fairly large border around the game’s artwork. However, it seems that this design is specific to GTA 5 only. This is the first time we’ve seen this in a Series X game, and it reminds us of those ugly ‘Greatest Hits’ cases you see from generations:
The digital version of the Xbox Series X and S version of GTA 5 also has the same gold border (albeit not as pronounced), so it seems Rockstar chose this design as a way to differentiate between the versions of GTA 5 the last generation and the current generation. The PS5 version has it too.
An odd choice if you ask us, but an interesting topic nonetheless!
