Dissapointed, really

collector edition doesnt even had soundtrack CD!

Well, R* is hardly in a position where they can sell the music they use, considering it's not theirs. Sure, the ambient music is, but that wouldn't be a prober soundtrack.



But for f*cks sake people, don't act so surprised, this isn't the first time R* did it, and if you didn't see it coming, you're a f*cking retard.

(I don't mind it, and I'm most likely gonna get the Special edition)

Not really Colonel jackass.

I don't want the cap or the bag, I just want the digital extras along with the blueprint and artwork. It sucks to pay so much more for little digital extras. Why did they have to split it like that? They could have added all digital extras onto the special edition and make the collectors edition have additional physical stuff. Everyone would be happy that way, but now they kinda force ppl like me into buying the most expensive set. Man, I hate where the gaming industry is leading to

Today is really a sad day indeed... I never expected such a move from R*.

I don't think it's fair, if you buy the special edition you get all this stuff that gives you an advantage over people who bought the normal version.

Special Ability Boost
Michael, Franklin and Trevor each have a unique special ability. With this boost, the special ability bar will generate 25% faster.

You will also start with a extra car you will get for multiplayer.

Rockstar = Jewstar

I've being to the Holocaust museum.. even though it's scabby of them I don't like people using the word Jew as an insult.

Didn't mean it like that, i edited my post.

Thank you, didn't wanna seem cruel but the sh*t I saw.. the sh*t Nazi Germany did was disgusting.

And this has any relevance to the thread because?

Also there are many types of Jews, get over it.

First, DLCs and collector packs are not just made by EA, they're made by everyone. Including Rockstar.
Second, where is the "It's awesome, but I will not buy it" option? Because I would buy it but I don't have the money for it.

Can't be bothered getting in a fight with someone over it on a forum that has nothing to do with it, clearly you're young or just ignorant.

That was the most immature reply I have seen yet.

Listen, just drop it, I am not gonna get on a flame war in here just because you don't like the word Jew.

I would like to get the PS3 Collectors Edition but i think 129 for the game and 249 for an already obsolete console are way too much. That money could be spend on better things. I just wait for the PC version and if there isn't one then i just don't buy the game.

I am upset you cannot get the hotknife, bike and the electric car unless you pay an extra $90 for the CE. I don't want any of the physical stuff, just the vehicles. The whole game is about driving cars and now I can never have them all even though I paid full price for the game. But these days that's not good enough, you gotta pay extra. I was hoping R* was above this BS but I guess not. I can only hope you can still acquire the hotknife, etc. by somehow unlocking them later in the game, but I'm not so sure. Like maybe they're just an early unlock with the CE, but everyone else has to earn them. But then people who paid the $150 will be upset others are getting them free in-game later. No one wins that way. I can't justify spending $150 on one game when I can buy a console for that. Amazon's got the Wii up for $150, the 3DS is only $10 more, and I paid less for my PSP. The CE should have been physical goods only - in-game stuff should remain in-game as unlockables.

why are people complaining about the preorder to fly blimp. You only have to put down $5, at least at EBG/Gamestop, and i think $10 at Bestbuy, Futureshop....

I'm gonna stick with the standard edition. Not paying 120 for hat!

Hopefully the extras will be DLC at some point.

I don't mind DLC as a rule. TBOGT really extended the life of IV for me (especially with the addition of the APC)

If i remember correctly GTA IV Collector Eds price was reduced by $10 before it came out. Here's hoping the same happens this time, except its $30+ lower.


its somewhat coming back to me, i think it was on sale not reduced.

Publishers who want to release Special/Collector's Editions of games should price it for what is really in the box. You're pretty much just paying for the packaging these days.

Kind of doubting the game is as big as they claim it is now. Rockstar was the last company I trusted with making quality games. Hopefully this is not another Saints Row The Turd or I'm done with gaming.

I actually use my IV collector lockbox all the time to use as my weed box lol. And the art book is cool to look at every once in a while to see the work they put into the game. But I don't ever see myself wanting a purse or a SnapBack so ill pass on the collectors edition. May get the $80 edition if it really seems worth it. Gotta ponder if the bonuses are worth $20. Wonder if the base game will have a map anymore or if its just the blueprint version now.

I might go for the special edition for the PS3 because I'm a fan, but not a fanatic. The physical contents in the $150 package are completely useless to me. I hate "collector's" anything, so I'll pass on that anyway.

I probably won't be able to enjoy it until the holiday season because the release date is around the time my classes begin.

Priorities, dammit.

My first reaction : Goddamnit Rockstar.
Then I remembered I was hoping to buy on release anyway.
Then I realized I couldn't support this bullsh*t so I COULDN'T buy on release.
Then I noticed I'm a PC gamer now, this isn't even relevant for me.

However this SHOULD NOT be acceptable. It is a shame that Rockstar, one of the last bastions of reasonable DLC practices has done something like this. I wish I could do more to stop this than just not buying it, I've done not buying since these practices started and it has had no effect.
