Rockstar has announced a pair of limited editions for Grand Theft Auto 5, each featuring a variety of exclusive digital and physical items.

The GTA 5 Special Edition features a copy of the full game, alongside a collectible steelbook, a 21.5" x 26.75" map of Los Santos and Blaine County, and various digital items, including a boost to each character's special ability boost, Stunt Plane Trials, bonus outfits, extra tattoos and additional weapons.

Meanwhile, GTA 5's Collector's Edition includes all of the above, plus a 10.75" 'security deposit bag' (a wallet, in other words), a Los Santos cap, classic GTA characters for use in GTA 5's online multiplayer and additional vehicles.

Neither edition has yet been priced for the UK, but in the US, the Special Edition will retail for $79.99 and the Collector's Edition for $149.99.

Meanwhile, players who pre-order any edition of GTA 5, including the standard retail edition, will be offered access to the Atomic Blimp - an in-game flyable blimp.

You can also combine that code with other current promotions (google them), such as spend over £50 and get £50 off. Zavvi offers free shipping to UK and Europe.

So it's up at £120 for the collectors edition on game, want this one but that's a lot to drop on gimmicky stuff, I like the cap as a cap wearer it would get used but the rest would just go in a draw, i do like the digital stuff though like that hot rod will have to wait to see if they will be releasing these items as DLC before making my decision otherwise it will just be the special edition for me.

Have no interest in this game. If I do end up getting it it'd be when they release the GOTY or whatever you call it edition.

!!!!!!! Ok, so the Special Edition listing is up... £65.

And extra £25 for a steelbook, map, and a few in-game clothes.

I'm going to have to think carefully about whether I shall be upgrading my preorder here... given the significant likelihood that the content will see release later on...

The burning question of course is "Which one will Dave be getting?"

"Or will he get both?"

Almost every single day of my life I find space for a Simpsons quote. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Also, I would quite like that Los Santos New Era cap. I can't justify the collectors edition just for that hat.. Can I?

Ah, ShopTo have the Collector's Edition listed - I meant the Special Edition (the middle tier one) as exclusive - at least, that's what Game's twitter account claimed (unfortunately).

But cheers for drawing the other listing to my attention! £120 is... yes... too much for what is included at that tier, IMO.

'Hey there, blimpey-boy, flying in the sky so fancy free...' *sob* :p Now that is a fun preorder bonus!

I must admit, that Hotrod in the Collector's Edition does look funky, alas... I really cannot justify spending that much. :-/ Still, I think the Special Edition warrants serious consideration. Might be worth mentioning that it is apparently exclusive to GAME over here though, so add on an extra £5 ripoff tax as standard... >.<
