I mean come on at least give us a 10 dollar gift card. The Microsoft Store is giving you 1600 microsoft points for free if you buy it there. Does anyone else agree with me that they should do something other than a blimp.
To be honest, I don't think there really is a pre-order bonus. IGN said all preorders get the blimp too but in fact, all "preorder" copies come with the code in the box. It's like the BF3 preorder bonus of that multiplayer map, which all boxed copies came with the code. It even says this on Amazon's preorder bonus description.
I ended up getting through the Microsoft store for the 1600 ($20) bonus. I really do bet that will have the blimp too. $20 is worth getting the game a little later in my opinion.
Well for all we know that blimp has rocket launchers on it and can go 150 mph. I mean come on its rockstar we are talking about here. I'm sure they wouldn't put a shitty pre order bonus in. But ya i kinda agree that the standard edition is kinda out in the cold. That's why i got the special edition. offered enough extra stuff to warrant a extera $20. And i heard about that microsoft thing. I like that they do that now for the majority of big triple A games now. gives me a reason to buy it from there.
I'm not sure if you get the blimp with it, may be only the 1600 Microsoft Point bonus, but either way it's whom I pre-ordered from this time, though it's usually from Amazon. Not only is it worth $19.99 in bonuses, but like Rockstar usually does they'll release the pre-order bonus in the marketplace for a dollar or so, and if I really want it I can just use the points I got it to get and still have 1400-1500 MSP leftover.
When i first preordered it last december (before they pushed back the release date) the pre-order bonus was an Epsilon Cult T-Shirt. i since cancelled that order, and ordered it again, but i wonder if other people who ordered it back then will get that bonus.
