Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Grand Theft Auto V Collectors And Special Edition Are So Good You'll Want To Steal 'Em
What good is the year's most anticipated video game release without an expensive Special Edition and an even more expensive Collector's Edition? You had to know that Rockstar Games wasn't going to miss this chance to cash in on the game everyone's talking about, and the game that'll close out this generation with a glorious bang. Probably lots of bangs. I can't blame them, and I wouldn't blame you if you were drooling over these.
This morning, Rockstar Games announced a $79.99 Special Edition for Grand Theft Auto V, as well as a $149.99 Collector's Edition.
The SE version comes with the following goodies:
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
Blueprint Map - exclusive, 21.5” x 26.75” map displays a blueprint view of Los Santos and Blaine County
