I'm getting the Special Edition... The Collector's is totally not worth the money

exactly this. The blue print I will frame and hang, the lockbox I can put on a shelf. Dont know what Id do with a bank pouch and though the hat is cool those two things are not worth an extra $70 to me. The in-game stuff the CE gives I dont care about.

I am now feeling the same. I have the CE pre-ordered and paid for at Gamestop, but after the initial wow factor wore off, I kept questioning whether it is actually worth it and came to the conclusion that it is not. I can live without the physical stuff as I have no idea what I would do with that stuff cause anytime I try to collect stuff and display it somehow it just ends up sitting in a cabinet gathering dust. The digital content just isn't that great to me once I start thinking about everything else that will be in single player and multiplayer, the vehicles, the guns, the customizable multiplayer character items, etc... that will all be brand new to me anyway.

 

I am gonna switch my preorder from the CE to the special edition, pay $10 more and get a 2nd special edition for my brother so we can shoot the sh*t out of each other online. So thats +1 to the special edition and -1 from the collectors edition on the poll. lol.gif

I agree with the initial gotta have it wow factor, and after i finally received a reply weather the 3 vehicles are exclusive as it sounded like they are, or just something you start off with, i already made my mind up last week about getting the SE and if i can get the deposit bag on ebay for cheap i might buy one. I will however keep my CE preorder for now, just in case, and yes they are exclusive, at least till GOTY comes.

Blimp - Should be available without pre-order

 

Steelbook/artwork - A cool little thingy.

 

Blueprint Map - pretty cool. Although it'll aprpear online pretty much right away.

 

Cap - Who cares?

 

Bag & Key - Who cares?

 

Plane Trials - Meh

 

Bonus Clothes/tats - Should all be in the standard game

 

Custom Multiplayer characters - Nice

 

Ability Boost - terribad

 

vehicles + garage - Should be in standard game

 

Bonus Weapons - Should be in sandard game

 

 

 

 

I'm still going to get the collectors edition because I was going to get it anyway, and honestly, I want the extra stuff. I'm compromising my morals to do so but I guess I just don't care enough in order to stand for what I elieve in this time around.

I want the one that has all the in-game stuff.

The special edition is just that right? The in-game stuff without the physical items (Hat, Bag,map)

 

And what's up with "Ability boost"? I like to play games for a long time, so I dont want my characters to level faster or start with an edge. Is that waht that is?

Can you toggle it off that you know of?

I bought the Collectors edition, mostly because the 'Los Santos' hat looks just like Ryders' hat in San Andreas. Also I got it for £95 on PS3 from Tesco so quite a bit cheaper!

I've waited too long for this to turn round and say I'm getting the lowest tier edition. It feels like fate has made the decision for me to get the Collectors' Edition.

Standard, because I haven't lost my mind and I understand the value in not wasting money. Seriously people, just buy the normal edition. No matter what you get the full game, don't waste a hundred dollars on bullsh*t; that's just sad.

Spending almost a hundred dollars/euros more for the CE content is just bad use of money no matter how rich you are. I mean that extra stuff isn´t worth the money. That´s why I am going with the standard edition.

I'm clearly not a troll. Did you read the thing that says I'm not a troll but stating facts/opinions. If you did then you see I'm stating both a fact and a opinion in that short sentence.

 

Funny how people that disagree with you is a troll. I wonder who really is the troll?

Collectors edition seems to be sold out everywhere I look in my area in Ireland, so Special edition.

Even if it wasn't sold out I wouldn't get it. 150 euro for a hat and a bag? No thanks.

man, i'm 33 years old. i don't buy many games anymore because a lot of them bore me. Rockstar makes great games and they have incredible replay value. the kid in me is spending his adult money on a rare treat that makes him very happy. it's puppy love.

I never said my opinion is fact. I stated that buying the same product is stupid. ( You can try to wrap it up all you want but it's stupid to buy the same product that does the same thing and keep them both. ) So what I stated was I agree with the fact that it's stupid which makes it both.

 

I really think you need to get your head looked at if you really think buying the same product to keep them both around is smart. Because it isn't.

Yep I'm homeless. Paying for Internet, Cable, Mortgage, Car, Water, etc... Then buying a new TV, New controller, 3 new games, Plus tons of Restaurants to eat. All this money in just June. I'm far from homeless but I got money to spare. What I might add is I GOT ALOT OF MONEY. But someone like you who lives pay check to pay check won't understand someone like me. One day you'll grow a brain. I just hope it comes sooner then later.

Yet you're not defending why its ok to buy both copies and keeping them both? Who really is the ignorant one in here? I have my points while you got NOTHING backing you up. Also that goes against what you say. Buying 3 games is the same as buying 2 games. It's stupid.
