When TLATD was first released as a downloadable game on XBLA as a stand alone, it was also sold in stores as a retail version. It only had a card board case, and map, and a code inside (no disc.)

Now even though a disc version of the game is easily found on mulitple formats, ebay and amazon sellers are trying to sell new copies of stand alone version for 80 dollars. Whether people pay for these or not is another question.

But my question to you guys is this; is the original stand alone version rare? Would you agree new and used copies are all the same because no matter what the code expires in 2013? How much would you price a used copy? Would serious GTA collectors find this to be a true rarity in the series?

I always look forward to digitpress' thoughts on these topics. Thanks.
