GTA: IV CE bundle unwrapped, trailer XBL, PSN-bound
[UPDATE] Rockstar Games releases first images of the $90 Grand Theft Auto IV bundle on eve of second trailer's premiere online--and on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.
When Rockstar Games announced it would release a $90 collector's edition of Grand Theft Auto IV, many wondered if it would be worth it. While some of the extras accompanying the game made sense, such as a soundtrack CD and art book, others were perplexing, including a duffle bag and safety deposit box.
This week, the Take-Two subsidiary released the first photos of the collector's edition extras. All the items reflect the Grand Theft Auto IV box art, which simply features the game's logo on a flat, black background. The duffle bag, safety deposit box, and art book all have a similar finish, and the soundtrack CD shows a gray-on-black outline of Liberty City skyline.
In other GTA IV news, tomorrow Rockstar will release the second trailer for the game, titled "Looking for that Special Someone." Besides premiering on the Web, the game will also be available on Xbox Live in high-definition. [UPDATE] On Thursday, Sony also announced that an HD version of the trailer would be made available on the PlayStation Network; it is also now available in high-definition on GameSpot.
Grand Theft Auto IV will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 16. The game has not yet been rated, but the regular edition of it will cost $59.99 on both platforms.
