GTA V Special Edition Leaked?

Recommended Posts

Dominik1411

Some onlineshops like "gamesonly.at" showed the content of the special edition of GTA V. It contains:

 

- SteelBook with exclusiv Artwork

- World map

- Stunt-Planes challenges

- Online-Store concessions

- Bonus outfits

- Bonus Tattoos

- Special Abilities Booster

- Exclusiv weapons

 

EDIT: The price of that edition was 90€ which is like 120$

 

EDIT2: I have to admit that the germans exchange rate is very stupid. So if something in the US costs 100$ it would cost 90-100€ in germany (1$ = 0,76€, 1€ = 1,31$). Videogames cost 50€ (cheapest, rare to find) to 70€ (expensive, mostly found in big shops). So from 65$ to 91€ for a normal game, no SE. So you can see that its more expensive in germany than in the US or UK. The SE doesnt have to cost 120$. It could cost 100$ as well. Just by the way^^

 

R* didnt confirm it so far but the online shop itself confirmed it.

 

It seems that they did delete it. R* wasnt so happy about it, to get leaked.

 

I got it from a german website, so most of you wont be able to check it out.

If already posted, just delete.

No, please god no. I swear to god, if R* adds the exclusive weapons and ability boost I'll be extremely mad. That's some EA type bullsh*t right there. R* will lose ALL credibility in my books, no matter how good V is. You mean to tell me that, because I didn't buy it without seeing any gameplay on the first day, that I won't be able to have the complete experience? How f*cking lame is that? I'll answer that: very.

Why is it that everyone's solution to everything on this forum is "Throw more money at it, Stopped! No worries!"

 

It's not that simple, especially if you're making your own money and living on your own trying to survive post-secondary education. I have to worry about food, rent, and tuition. $60 a game is already steep enough as it is. Why should I have to settle for an incomplete experience just because I have real life to worry about as well?

I hope that it comes in an all black box with nothing on it but the "V" logo. But the game itself comes in the actual box art because I want to display it on my game shelf with the actual no art

I remember I didn't buy the GTA IV special edition because the standard was $89 and the special was $149 (Australian prices). JB Hifi usually has great discounts on brand-new games, yet they never applied it to the special edition for IV. I didn't care because it wasn't in-game content. If it's in-game content for V and $60 more again, f*cking hell, how is that fair?

Your acting like $20 is an entire months wages. I don't have a lot of money either but in still willing to pay the extra $20 for a game I've waited 5 years for. If you don't want to do it then don't. But then don't complain about "incomplete experience" the stuff that's added is most likely very trivial and small anyways. Your still going to get 99% of the game if you but the vanilla version. Comparing rockstar to EA is going too far I think.

Actually, the OP as been edited. The price is 120$ wich the double of the price for thing that doesn't worth all that. Even if it's GTA V.

Oh damn. I read the descriptions he gave and assumed it was just a simple add on to the game and a special case. What could be in there to justify doubling the price? I might not even get it now.

Well, lets take into consideration my expenses, shall we?

 

I live with my girlfriend, and we net about $1200 a month between us. Our rent is $600, so we have $600 left. We also need to do groceries, which is about $200 a month. Now we have $400. Then how about typical couple activities? easily another $150 a month, leaving about $250 a month for everything else. What about gas? $160 a month easy. Now what? $90. How much is a game plus tax? about $70.

 

Life is hard enough as it is, I'm not dropping $100 on a special edition. Simple as that, so why should I not be able to play the full game?

Been waiting for news about a collector's/special edition so I could preorder V but all this crap about exclusive content is weirding me out. Also an in-game store? This really is a big jump for GTA, be it bad or good we'll just have to wait and see. Still, I'll most likely preorder it though.

I guess that makes sense then. Damn after hearing that I'm never going to live outside the house like that for school. When I go to school next year I'm just going to stay home. I'm going to work this summer for $12 an hour at my moms company so I should have about $6k saved up meaning I should be able to go to school without working while I'm in school. But if I rented an apartment I would have to work while I'm in school and probably end up in your situation. Good luck dude hope you guys turn out alright.

Thanks man, we make it work. Without eachother we'd be f*cked... I guess that explains why we've worked out for all these years wink.gif

 

If I came off as being a dick here, I really didn't mean to be. I'm just frustrated with this decision by R* (if it turns out to be true, of course).

Then how about typical couple activities? easily another $150 a month, leaving about $250 a month for everything else. What about gas? $160 a month easy. Now what? $90. How much is a game plus tax? about $70.

 

Life is hard enough as it is, I'm not dropping $100 on a special edition. Simple as that.

How the hell do you guys net $1200 a month? Are you working for less than minimum wage or something?

Half of our paychecks go into saving up for next semester.

I guess that makes sense then. Damn after hearing that I'm never going to live outside the house like that for school. When I go to school next year I'm just going to stay home. I'm going to work this summer for $12 an hour at my moms company so I should have about $6k saved up meaning I should be able to go to school without working while I'm in school. But if I rented an apartment I would have to work while I'm in school and probably end up in your situation. Good luck dude hope you guys turn out alright.

Thanks man, we make it work. Without eachother we'd be f*cked... I guess that explains why we've worked out for all these years wink.gif

 

If I came off as being a dick here, I really didn't mean to be. I'm just frustrated with this decision by R* (if it turns out to be true, of course).

Yeah I was probably the one that came of as a dick though. sorry anout that. I'm now mad about the decision as well considering the damn price. $20 price increase I would get it. $60 price increase hell no. I can't see how they can justify charging any more than $20 for that package. That's barely anything.

Wouldn't call it a leak yet until it's been confirmed, anyone can make up bonuses for a game and publish it on a website

No, please god no. I swear to god, if R* adds the exclusive weapons and ability boost I'll be extremely mad. That's some EA type bullsh*t right there. R* will lose ALL credibility in my books, no matter how good V is. You mean to tell me that, because I didn't buy it without seeing any gameplay on the first day, that I won't be able to have the complete experience? How f*cking lame is that? I'll answer that: very.

Dude just get the special edition. It probably won't be more than $20 more than the standard edition

Why is it that everyone's solution to everything on this forum is "Throw more money at it, Stopped! No worries!"

 

It's not that simple, especially if you're making your own money and living on your own trying to survive post-secondary education. I have to worry about food, rent, and tuition. $60 a game is already steep enough as it is. Why should I have to settle for an incomplete experience just because I have real life to worry about as well?

Your acting like $20 is an entire months wages. I don't have a lot of money either but in still willing to pay the extra $20 for a game I've waited 5 years for. If you don't want to do it then don't. But then don't complain about "incomplete experience" the stuff that's added is most likely very trivial and small anyways. Your still going to get 99% of the game if you but the vanilla version. Comparing rockstar to EA is going too far I think.

Can't stand it when people say day one DLC is good because it's "bonus". No it's pieces taken out of the game which leaves other (most) players with a game that is missing pieces so to to speak. I was really hoping that Rockstar would make a SE similar to IV's which contained all physical merchandise. That was a true and epic SE not with these so called, "bonuses".

Seriously? Just stop buying balloons in the park with your girlfriend for a month and save up for the best damn version of the best damn game thats going to be coming out in the next 5 years. When we are talking about GTA, just throwing money at it is the only way to live with yourself while you play the game.

Better start saving now biggrin.gif that's the point, a special edition is for the people who are willing to pay more to get more. You have 4 months lol
