Rockstar has announced GTA 5 Special and Collector’s editions. Offering a range of physical and in-game items, including access to additional weapons, unique vehicles and custom characters, both editions will be available to pre-order worldwide beginning today at participating retailers.

Additionally, customers who place a pre-order for any version of the game (including the standard retail edition) ahead of its September 17 release date will receive access to pilot the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle, “the most iconic and leisurely aircraft in the Los Santos skies”. Full details of the Special and Collector’s editions follow:

GTA 5 Special Edition ($79.99)

    Not paying that much for that stuff

    I like some of the bonuses that come with the Collectors edition, but the hat I would never wear because it's not my style, and I don't need a locking bag with a key. If I'm going to pay $150 for something, it better come with something I can display or something I can spend a few hours sifting through and reading. Essentially, it'd need to be more like Halo 3/Reach Legendary Editions. The special edition I might swing for.

    This is getting the Chronicles of Riddikulas.

    So the reward for paying extra is that they make the game a bit easier for you? Did they accidentally make it too hard to begin with? How much do I have top pay to win the game without even playing?

    I remember seeing the price of pre-orders for GTA 5 at a local EB Game's being sold at $120 for just the base game (this is in Australia btw), god knows how much that collectors edition version would cost here.
