For those of you who haven't seen it yet, here is the content you will receive in GTAIV's special edition kit.
(slightly off topic) Anyone know why Sony/BR use's slightly smaller case's than their counter parts, MS/dvd? I wonder if so when displayed it always has to be put at the front...(just an observation) On topic, think I'll stick with the standard edition, as much as I want a GTA bag...
it's a marketing thing. Blu-Ray is sleeker, cases are sleeker. The reason for a small case is nothing more than to differentiate the titles easily from DVD for purchasing reasons. That my opinion. I love em though, got two whole shelves filled with movies and games now, not a bad start.
lol I thought I was the only one wondering that. The PS3 cases look sexier to me. 360 still uses those big old crunchy PS2 styled cases :(
I remember reading something about this just before the PS3 launched...Each media format creators in some form own rights to what the media gets distributed in...there is 'official' boxes for each type of media basically...and yeah, its all marketing stuff...CD had the jewel cases, DVD at first had the terrible cardboard things, as well as the plastic,...but later switched to only the plastic boxes...Blu Ray and HD-DVD used cases from the same supplier, but in different colors obviously...there are little differences between each studio's casing sometimes, but iirc the size of the boxes are controlled...and special rights have to be granted to make special addition cases and crap...I remember Peter Jackson complaining about that when making the extended LOTR set... and the PS3 BD games have their own cases that are DVD thickness but smaller...which I like more than the super thin BD movie things...but whatever
This and MGS4 are what every developer/publisher should take a look at when bringing out a LE. One look at this and I couldn't help but order this one instead of the vanilla game package.
Some have to take 2 vanilla's rather than blowing there cash on one Neapolitan :( sprinkles are a stretch for me right now...
I'm betting 90% of those who get this will use the security box to store their pot in, lol
thats exactly why i preorderd the special edition heh
yea that seems to be the most accepted reason. i kno my ps3 titles frm all others even in the dark jus frm the shape of the cases
boy i cant wait to hold in my hands :D
why is it that im just seeing this article for the first time but yet the first few comments are from over an hr ago? since i have nothin to do at work im constantly hitting the refresh button and this article just now popped up but yet ppl done commented on it over an hr ago. Is it just this cpu or what?
you can comment once the news has been submitted, but i can take some time till the news is approved and appears on the front page
I do the same thing. Much easier to view through a RSS feed. Looking foward to the packaged deal that I preordered through amazon.
there's a PENDING news section, where articles are made and they have to get 'approved' by 10 members. http://n4g.com/tt/Pending.a... During the time they're in the approval process, you can comment on them. But if they fail the approval...they don't make it to the front page.
when you shut your eyes and you open them, there goes 1 hour....
OH i see the link now to view all articles versus featured articles, thanks
i'm going to change my pre-order to the LE... i like the R* bag and keychain.
XBF just posted that it's the same thing we've seen for months. They did't say it that way. They made a big deal out of it too, but nothing has changed based on the picture. Why is this news? http://xboxfamily.net/story...
As you can tell by reading the article. The post also shows that this is for any who have not seen it, as it is not widely known as to the visual contents of the LE. Wow, I just read my last sentence and I'm not sure it makes sense. Basically, this is the real deal, in the flesh, which has not really been seen before.
Would this damn game just come out already??! I hate the interwebz. Everywhere I look I am teased that this game is not out yet. . .
but very much looking forward to getting in the warhawk war room with my clan :D especially when were just starting the gb playoffs now.
this on Rock *'s site last year already.......
this has been on R* web site forever, since last year!!!!
the main reason i can't wait and i'm definitely looking into the soundtrack and the metal safe deposit box which is funny can't wait
