I'm absolutely gutted about the weapons/blimp access type DLC's. really, disappointed.
-not so worried about the map as that is probably literally just the seafront section of LS.

If you pre ordered the game even the standard edition gets to fly the blimp. Even pre orders before this was announced get it. I do have a question about the guns and cars though. Are they still in the standard game and by getting the special or collectors edition give you access to them sooner or free?

I am not paying another $90 for some random junk I'll never even use. I'll stick with my regular retail copy. I get the blimp, so I'm happy. smile.gif

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.

Blame the 12ie's my brother.

this is indeed a c*nty move by R*. the people that buy this sh*t are getting robbed. the people that buy the basic game will be left feeling like they bought a fragment and R* look like the kind of corporate douchebags they often satirise.
it's a sad, lose lose situation. and surprising.
maybe they want their share price to drop for whatever reason.

The collectors edition costs way too much, 150$ bucks is ridiculous.

The GT 5 collectors edition was $300 here.

''Pre-ordering either of the editions, including the standard one, will grant you access to the fabled Blimp''

Just in case anyone forgot how to read. Pre-ordering any edition will give you access to the blimp. All the other sh*t i don't care about. So if you know you're gonna buy the game, just f*cking pre-order. What's the big deal?

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.

Sometime later after the game releases R* will put the exclusive DLC content in the pre orders for sale on the Playstation Network Store and XBOX Live Market Place.They did the same thing for Red Dead Redemption's DLC pre order bonuses.Most of it won't be free and will be around $1 to $4.99 per each DLC content a person decides to get.

Just have to wait it out.

Lol about some people. Getting robbed for buying the CE, seriously? No one is forcing you to buy anything. Instead you can skip buying the game at all and cry at home, Rockstar won“t give a f*ck about your broke ass. Instead they can focus on us who are true fans of Rockstar and wants to show our appreciation for all the hard work they have undoubtedly done for the past five years by buying this very nice collectors edition.

Exactly. I don't want most of the physical items, just the custom content. I'll get the special edition, but the custom garage seems so tempting! sad.gif

Unfortunately you can't do anything. You certainly can't talk sense in to people as loudly as big game companies can market their spin.

So it's tough sh*t i'm afraid. Many of us who helped Rockstar become the company it is today will just have to settle for it and have some content cut out of our game.

The majority rules, that's just the way it is... Socrates warned us all this would happen.

The number of people not caring in the last 12ish hours has risen from 2% > 18%, incredible!

Whilst people approving the first R* special pack has stayed steady at 6%. (41% - 35%)

Collector's edition is too expensive.

Special edition is only available at GAME/R* Warehouse (UK) who can't guarantee release day delivery.

I'll be getting the standard version. They better release the digital content for everyone at some point down the line.

So will the "classic characters" be released AFTER the game is out as DLC?
They are the only reason why I want the collector's edition and I'm not spending £120 on a game ESPECIALLY if I plan on getting it on PC as soon as that is possible.

I'm hearing there pre-orders in Australia for the Collectors were barely stocked, this is f*cking pathetic by Rockstar and EB Games Australia.

And Take-Two lol, take my two f*cks T2.

Rip-off to UK customers; we're paying at least £20 more than the U.S.

£120 at least, compared to £99 for the U.S.

Standard for me.

I personally think the collectors edition is a bit over priced, for what you get. But the special edition is the perfect price for what you get. If the collectors edition was maybe $100 bucks, then yea I would buy it, but 70 dollars (150-80 (special edition)) for a hat and bag? That is too over priced.

Being a "true" fan isn't defined by how much you pay them.

If I remember right, The Grand Theft Auto IV Collectors Edition was essentially the same as this, except it was a safebox, which I'd prefer, instead of a bag. I'll see how much it costs in my currency, otherwise I'll probably just buy the Special Edition.
