Max Payne 3: Buy the Game and Score GTA 4 for Free at Target
By this point it should be quite clear that the Max Payne and Grand Theft Auto series are being marketing and, to some extent, being developed with an eye towards each other. As we reported earlier, crews you create at Max Payne 3 will be transferable to Grand Theft Auto 5. Talk about a seamless and smooth experience.
You also get to maintain previous relationships with other players, and your crew just moves from one game to another. No wonder some observers claim that Rockstar might revolutionize multiplayer gaming. We are not going to drink the Kool Aid just yet since the verdict is still out on just how awesome the crew system is on a large and sustainable scale. I do have to admit that the concept does seem to have traction and is quite scalable. Besides the crew system, Max Payne and Grand Theft Auto refer to each other in marketing. How? If you get a copy of the latest installment of the highly anticipated hard-hitting action game Max Payne series, Max Payne 3, you pick up a nice bonus. It is no skimpy title no one has ever heard of either. Nope. If you score Max Payne 3, you hook up with a free copy of Grand Theft Auto 4.
How awesome is that? If you have not played GTA 4 yet, then this is a great opportunity to find out why many gamers and game blogs have voted GTA 4 as the top open world game title in history. Hyperbole much? There is only one way to find out. Besides, GTA 4 might have a few years under its belt but its rich storyline and superb character development still pack way more value than much of the fluff that pass for DLCs nowadays.
