Screw guides like these man. I rather find this stuff myself. I don't understand why people buy them.

I preordered the LE guide last month. I never purchased a GTA guide before. This just seemed like
a really good collector's item.

I won't be using it for help with missions at all. However, after I beat the game I will definitely read it to
see what little things I may have not picked up on on a first play through.

With 432 pages I'm sure this thing will have some cool details I didn't
know about.

That's why I have pre ordered one, wait until I have finished the game, but I will have a quick browse through.

They said that it was the first time a GTA series guide was done in hardcover. I think this LE will really be a good collector's item.

It's a nice looking thing for after you completed the storyline with maps that are a hassle to print out and nice artworks.

But then again you have probably payed a lot of extra money on the game for a little bit of worthless dlc right?

Play.com are doing the Limited .edition cheap.

I don't like buying from them. I sent the page to Amazon to see if they'd price match it but they haven't done it yet. I'd much rather buy from Amazon.

I wish this came with the collector's edition. It looks great, but I'm spending so much money for this game already (collector's edition, xbox live, 60gb hardrive, and a new mic). sad.gif

Hopefully it will be availalbe down the road at some time.

It looks SEXY. I have mine paid off. You get a % off when you buy it with the game. So on the 17th gamestop will actually be giving me money smile.gif

I want this for my coffee table. I will read the intro probably, and then keep it aside until I need to hunt down collectibles.

Is the V on the front cover embossed? Or is it just how the art looks?

Yeah they charge you full price when you pre order it. But if you get the game and the guide on day one it is % off.. So, since I have the game and guide paid off, they will have to refund me the %.

Or that's what the manager said.

I hope the information in regards to certain aspects like collectables is better than the San Andreas one some of those Horse Shoes were a pain to find due to being moved locations from what the guide said. Although on the other hand you did get to see some of the hints to ideas from the beta like having the gang wars over a larger scale than just in LS.

Really cool, im a big fan of these books or leaflets or paper books including cool stuff about the game. I mean, it gives so much more to the game. Ofc there is no chance of me holding one of these books in my hand but still cool.

I would love to get the book. I think it's a good investment. However, I rather explore and discover things on my own first. Having the book at my side assures me if I get stuck somewhere or need to know something. I will have a look but keep it short and explore as much as I can.
