Hey guys. I just wanted to say that I got this version for free because I already digitally own the main version. I switched my Xbox region for free and the Japanese version showed up in my ready to install!

That didn't work for me. But I was able to buy GTA V (JP) from the Japanese Live Store even though it's rated Cero-Z, but I had to buy it through one of the bundles with Shark Card, but that's on Black Friday sale now. I had to use my Microsoft balance to buy it, I had enough YEN left over from another purchase.

Yeah, don't have the regular version installed and switch to jp marketplace and find GTA v and install it. It should be the jp version that gets installed.

Did you buy the game with a shark card bundle when you originally bought it? If so, that may be why you're able to download the JPN version.

Why would that matter?

Got to try this myself finally. Didn’t work.

Amazon had a promotion a week ago where digital codes for this game were $15, and you’d get a $15 Amazon credit after purchasing, effectively making it free.

I claimed my code, already having had the game installed from owning it on disc. I switched my console’s country to Japan, and the JP version didn’t appear in Ready to Install. Tried looking in the marketplace. I found a listing for the JP version, but it was showing as 5400 Yen rather than owned.

I haven’t tried uninstalling the international version to see if it’ll let me install the JP version, but I doubt it.

Okay, it's really works. Just change region console to Japan, restart console and then find GTA V in the Store. Press "Install" and you'll see another GTA is downloading.

Still doesn't work for me. The Japanese version has a price tag.
