I really want everyone to get the blimp. I am going to pay the same amount of money as the guy who pre orders, because he pays upfront he gets the blimp that Rockstar showed from the first piece of screenshots. I think it's unfair to those who will not get to fly the blimp.

Pre-Order costs $5 bro.

Don't drink anything other than Water for a week.

Why not just preorder? There is no disadvantage to it.

Hopefully all that stuff will be DLC at a later date anyway. Not too late to pre-order even so! I see where you're coming from, though. It is exploitation for a quick buck and all that.

Want to see the view from the blimp? Parachute on top of it. Want to pilot the blimp? Why would you want to? Blimps are slow.

I just want to know what's the point of pre ordering when you can go to the store on the release day and pay 60 bucks and get the game?

Also if you don't drink anything other than water for a week you'll end up saving money.

Free Blimp with Pre-Order or Paid for Blimp Without


Not a hard choice if you care about the Blimp.

Because if GameStop only orders 500 copies, and you're the 501st customer, you're gonna' be upset.

The other point of preordering is apparently to get the blimp.

you'll be able to avoid the long lines and you'll probably get the game a day before release

How late is too late? I intend on waiting for a good offer for a while, and also need to wait til I've freed up a bit of cash!

Yes there is. I hate pre-ordering but I did so at gamestop. It limits in where you can buy.

No idea how late is too late. A friend of mine told me they had heaps at my local games store here so I haven't bothered yet either.

it will be available at some point as dlc for like 99 cents anyways if i pay upfront i think i deserve some kind of exclusivity even if it's temporary

Think of it as an incentive, especially since the blimp will form a tiny, tiny amount of the gameplay, so you'd not be 'losing' much.

Because if you can buy GTA V, you can preorder it. It's also a fact that blimps are slow as f*ck, so R* knows it's a weak preorder bonus.

LOLOL... you sir, have not been to a Midnight release of GTA before have you? Huge crowds. Atleast here in the states. I didnt pre order GTA4 and game stores will just tell you pre order or no game for release day

You know you can put down a pre order and just pay for the game when you pick it up right? Even if they want a deposit it'll be knocked of the price you pay. Personally I pre order online, pay it off a week before it comes out then when it's delivered most the time it's a day early and I get the pre order stuff.

Still if you don't want to do that the codes are inside the box so there is a good chance you can get a case with the code in without making a pre order. Plus I've no doubt all in-game content will be avaible to everyone at some point. We also don't know if this is the only blimp in the game or just a skin. Do whatever you please and don't think you'll be missing out because you won't be.

Look, I suppose it is a way to show customer loyalty, that you are definitely going to get your game no matter what and you want it first.

It is also a way to get quick cash for those shops who charge you for a pre-order.

Nevertheless, preorder the game. And if you are not in a territory where you can preorder and get bonuses (like me, I am from Guatemala) just do what I always do and order online with a company that will bring stuff from the U.S.

Helps bolster Rockstar's reputation too...not that it's need at this point though.

Continued HUGE pre-order numbers give the publishers a clear showing of the demand out there. Obviously it doesn't encompass all purchases....but 10,000 preorders is vastly inferior to 1 million of them.

This is a GTA game were talking about... I don't think you'll be able to find a retailer that has copy on release day.... and even if you do Its a pre ordered copy, I recommend you pre order as SOON AS POSSIBLE, or else you'll have to wait a couple of days till your retailer gets more copies ( Believe me this happened to me on GTA 4 release day)

pre order just has access to it sooner I believe, everyone will still have access to pre-order content, just as you progress through the game.

This is what I'm thinking.

They specify a lot that it's the "Atomic" Blimp. As we know, Atomic Burgers is a new business in GTA - probably competition for Burger Shot.

This pre-order blimp is probably just like the golden guns for Red Dead Redemption. Just a retexture, a small gift for pre-ordering the game.
