Release date: March of 2008
GTA IV Grenade
It could be said that Rockstar Games is well known for having a style when it comes to promoting their games, and that
always goes one step further when the new Grand Theft Auto is released. You can certainly expect some cool treats in the
form of some bag of surprises. Well, at least if you are somewhat known and recognized as a Rockstar games and
Grand Theft Auto promoter and devoted enthusiast who continues to keep producing quality content in regards to the
GTA IV was no exception, and during its promotion right after its release, Rockstar sent out this one as a " Hidden Package #5 "
to various fansites as a way to promote the game itself, but of course as well as to put smile on the faces of the franchise devoted
admirers and fans.
* To our current knowledge there were couple of these promotional 'events' where Rockstar was sending out the various
goodies - or let's just called them what they really are - " Hidden Package " goodies and swag , and GTA IV Hand Grenade
was part of the " Hidden Package #5 ", received alongside with other numerous items.
Numerically, it is highly unlikely that there were actually hundred of them, but our knowledge reaches up to six of them, with each
containing different promotional material.
Known hidden packages promotional packages: #1,2,3,4,5,6,7.
Status and Availability:
Considering it was given only to a handful of people and is specifically targeted at mentioned fansites, even though they could be
numerous, this one could be regarded as Extremely Rare specimen. The very occasion itself also testify to that, since there was no
retail availability for this one or it was ever mentioned that any additional copies of this particular item has ever been a part of some other
later giveaway, unlike some other items from the " Hidden Package " items. Even though, number of units is unknown, it could be easily
assumed it is in hundreds - and that being the worst case scenario.
