I'd say no. Special Edition is likely the better choice. But its your money, you are the ultimate one to ask, not us.

Personal opinion is what counts on this one really.
I got 3, 1 for the 360 and the PS3 and an extra for the 360 to keep unopened for years and be a proper collectors one.

Just getting standard myself. It's less than 1% extra added to the game. For the sake of a few extra vehicles, shirts and what not, I couldn't give a damn.

First you pre-order the collector's edition.

Then you ask people if it's worth it.

I would honestly buy it for the in-game perks, but it was sold out everywhere when I checked so I ended up buying the PS3 bundle. Kind of sucks, 'cuz I really wanna drive the HotKnife.

Only the standard edition worth.
this is just a game, tomorrow or later comes a better game and it all ends. confused.gif
digital content can be available for sale in the future, and even that is unique to a few people, represents a small part of the game like 1%~2%
the book of artwork is only valid the first read, after seeing all the artworks it will be stored in the closet.
the blueprint map is for little use, as it will have a lot of information on the internet, then there will be no secrets
the cap I do not need to comment
and money bag I still do not know what it is for.

Man you almost convinced me to downgrade from special to standard... Lol. But nah, I mean it's only $20 more for the extra content. I believe the collectors is a rip off. I do however want that extra DLC. I could care less for the cosmetics.

Agreed with everything said here. Don't make the mistake in thinking these editions are the only way to get the in game content because they will be avaible to everyone down the road.

I think the special edition is the " best bang for your buck " .....if the digital content that comes in the special and collectors editions are NOT gonna be offered at a later date....if the extra stuff becomes available later on, then it kinda defeats the purpose of preorders.......

I have a question, does the blimp only come with the collectors edition? or does it also come with the standard edition if you pre order?

How so? The in game content with these editions are NOT pre order bonuses and adding more to the point with the blimp if you pre order you get it for free and get it several months before others. Others will have to pay for it and wait a while for it to be avaible. That's the incentive to pre order.

Personally I don't think it's worth it.

In the UK it cost 120. I'm not interested in the physical items and all the digital content will be released at a later date.

If I had to buy either the SE or the CE I'd pick the SE. I wouldn't mind the steel book/map and most of the digital stuff is in the SE.

If you want it, then yes. If you don't, then no. It's not hard.

But if you're talking about physical resale value, no.

That's a real waste of money.

OT: It's what you feel. I got the Special edition just to get that DLC. Only $20 more. The collector's edition is $70 more then the special edition. If you want my honest feedback then no it really isn't. They will release the DLC later for a couple dollars.

from my understanding. the collectors addition has dlc, that doesnt come with the special addition.

I dont know about you guys, but I've been waiting for five years. I want all the cars, garages, guns, etc that I can get

I hope they do keep the dlc exclusive to keep everyone else who decided not to shell out the cash angry.

He could cancel if it's not worth it.

(Hopefully)

I'd say it is if you want the gear. I believe eventually you'll be able to purchase the extras later but why not get them early with extra stuff at that? whatsthat.gif
