All Right, Who’s Ready To $pend An Untold Amount of Money on the GTA V Collector’s Edition? (Besides Me)

Video game companies must think we’re all suckers. Truth be told, they are spot-on with that assessment. They keep cranking out these massive special editions full of geegaws and whatnots, and we, the video game playing public, keep snapping them up. To what end? I’ve never used the GTA IV lockbox I got with that particular special edition, yet I’ve dragged it to four different apartments (NYC: We Move A Lot). I have so many art books I use them as coasters when all the friends I’ve abandoned to play video games come over to drink heavily.  Now it’s just de facto for any AAA-title to come out with the most overstuffed special edition (usually in tiers, as well, which leaves me in tears haha j/k) to try and pawn off on their particular niche.  The Call of Duty franchise is probably the worst offender. But don’t think I’ve forgotten about you, Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2 or Uncharted 3.

Still though….Atomic Blimp. That’s mighty tempting.blimp

Keep your eyes peeled (or your browsers pointed here) for further announcements from Rockstar on the whens and (more importantly) the how muchs of pre-ordering your very own copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

From Rockstar:

Dear all,
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.
We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require.
To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September – we thank you for your support and patience.
Yours,
The GTA Team

Dancing Around the Issue: More GTA V Screens

Outside of the trailer (below) from about nine months ago, the only info regarding Grand Theft Auto V has been the odd still here or there. This is the second batch of three released this week, this time under the heading, “Leisure”. Hopefully there’ll be another set on Friday, entitled “Chaos”.

Grand Theft Auto 5 – Two New Screenshots

Could you image if Rockstar was able to ship two of their flagship titles this year?

GTA V will take precedent over just about every other release this year, with possibly the exception of Borderlands 2. It will DEFINITELY take precedent over my job. And most likely the gym. And sleep.

Damn.
