^Yep, exclusive for the guide. For the game they must give you a poster http://www.ebgames.c...poster-2-lg.jpg did they?

I only pre-ordered 9 days ago, so it should be in the post now I hope smile.gif

Aren't you supposed to get it in the store when you pre order?

I pre-ordered online, it says on the website that for online pre-orders they'll be posted out within 7 days of your order.

Just went to my GameStop today but they didn't have the lithograph. I still pre-ordered the limited edition strategy guide and hopefully if they get the print in they'll give me one. I did manage to get one of these promotional boxes though. As you can see it has the old Spring 2013 date but it also happens to be my favorite artwork from the game so far (and was the first released).

Rockstar posted about it on the Newswire:

http://www.rockstarg...ive-lithog.html

QUOTE
Pre-order the Official Grand Theft Auto V Signature Series Strategy Guide from BradyGames and you'll receive a free exclusive lithograph of the illustration above, where Michael, Trevor and Franklin are preparing to take down an armored car in one of the GTAV missions that was demonstrated for select press outlets back in May.

The Signature Series ($24.99, 400 pages) features a complete walkthrough for Grand Theft Auto V with mission maps that identify key objectives along with thorough coverage of all off-mission activities and maps that detail every square mile of Los Santos & Blaine County.

The hardcover bound Limited Edition ($36.99, 432 pages) includes all the content featured in the Signature Series edition, plus an exclusive bonus lithograph and a collection of GTAV illustrations.

Both the Signature Series and the Limited Edition will be available with the game at launch on September 17th.

Does this mean you only get the lithograph if you buy the more expensive version? Or just that it's free if you pre-order?

Do you guys think the pre-order for the limited edition will still be available in the week before the release of the game?
And do I need an address to pre-order something from Gamestop/EB Games or can I just go there, create an account and pay with real money at the release time?

Don't know why people buy strategy guides. Doesn't it feel cheap looking at walkthroughs and not doing it yourself?

It's not about the walkthroughs or the tips, it's about collecting an item for a game you have been expecting for a long time. And also, if you are a fan (and I am), it's about the artworks and illustrations.

Exactly. That and as far as getting 100% completion, I will use the strategy guide for things like stunt jump locations and whatever this game's equivalent of hidden packages/pigeons. Never once used one for the story mission walkthrough.

Places you can Pre-order this at.

Amazon (Maybe)
Gamestop (Yes)
EB Games CA and AU (Yes)
Tesco (Unsure of this yet as i'm not a UK resident)

It also says it comes with Exclusive DLC So could the $40 - $48 Be worth it?

My Image from another post about it.

As you see, It does Say it comes with EXCLUSIVE DLC, and some Speical Art. I think it's worth it, But i'll wait till the game comes out to buy it.

Amazon.co.uk will include the lithograph.

I have the standard edition guide pre ordered. I don't know if I should change it and get the limited instead.

Oh look, only available in the US, Canada, UK and Australia. Great, once again we are being ignored. As if the Google's new Chromecast (only in US for now) is not enough.

I am really tired of this crap. Long live the new Anglicism, huh? dozingoff.gif


PS: Yeah, sure we can order it internationally.. but with extra shipping costs and times.

It says exclusive BONUS content, not DLC. It means there could be posters, stickers or something else, but not DLC

I knew Amazon was wrong haha happy.gif

They listed the regular edition at 448 pages and the Limited Edition at 400 Pages.
So now correctly as told by R* the Regular edition is at 400 pages while the LE is at 432. icon14.gif
