You didn't think Rockstar would release a new Grand Theft Auto game without doing it up right, did you? Come September 17 there'll be three ways to get your Grand Theft Auto V on — the $59.99 regular version, a $79.99 special edition, and the $149.99 collector's edition. What's the return on your investment?
I've got enough clutter in my place, so I'll stick with the regular edition myself, but I can see the appeal of the lovely blueprint map in the special edition, and who doesn't love hats? People without heads, that's who. And say, is that Niko Bellic I spy up there? Here's what comes inside the big-money boxes:
The Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition includes:
- Full retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V;
- Collectible SteelBook with Exclusive Artwork - features custom color and metallic treatments to bring out the detail of the Michael, Trevor and Franklin artwork created exclusively for this SteelBook;
