I just happened to check this morning, and I noticed that Gamestop's website once again is allowing people to preorder the Special Edition of GTA V for both PS3 and 360.  I jumped on it, and I would recommend anyone else that wants it to jump on it too.  I doubt it'll be available for too long.

I've never pre-ordered online with Gamestop.  Do they do release date delivery?

I was wondering the same thing, but I don't think that they do.  When in checkout, their was no option for release date delivery.

 

In fact, I think that the only option was some form of delivery that takes from 4-7 days, which isn't ideal, but I'm willing to wait if it means getting the SE.

Was going to get this but it was gone at my local Gamestop so I ended up with the collector's edition.  Oh well, credit well used. lol

They banned you from GIVING them money?  That sounds quite odd for a greedy company to do.

Exactly. I will admit that I did abuse the hell out of that promotion. My ban is probably well deserved... LOL

 

Anyway, I guess I'll drop by a physical store for the first time in ages. That way, I'll be in incognito mode....

^ ummmm.... that may be a wasted trip. Once they close preorders in-store they almost never reopen them. This is most likely only available online now.

Ah. Well thanks for the heads up!

 

I guess I'll be getting the standard version this year... or paying a ton for it on eBay.

Based on what you wrote, I assume you tried to cheat GameStop and exploit some site error.

Damn, I was hoping this wouldn't be rare since I do want it but don't think it's worth anything close to the $150 they're asking for it.

What you're referring to is the Collector's Edition. The Special Edition has been unavailable for preorder for a few weeks now and I guess has just been made available again only on the GameStop website.

 

I still think it's a little ridiculous that they're charging $20 more for just a steelbook, a map and a couple of things of DLC, but I still kind of want it. I should've preordered a while back. Here's hoping that it'll come back in stock at Amazon so I can get it without paying taxes and shipping.

Wow!  The Special Edition is that popular?!  In that case, I'm glad I made the upgrade from vanilla to the Special Edition.  Paid it off, too, so it's just in-and-out when I pick it up next week.


Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

Heh, that doesn't seem so bad considering they're charging another $70 for a hat, deposit bag and a few additional pieces of DLC.

I'd love to buy the SE for the map, but I hate that it has to be folded up to fit in the case. It just ruins maps for me.

You did some thing more then just buying from their B2G1.  You did some thing to defraud the system.

 

You don't get banned for simply buying games.  You get banned for taking advantage of promo type glitches and what not.

 

I can see why you got banned now though.

 

 

I hope the SE edition comes back in stock on amazon.

I was wavering back and forth between the Standard and the LE at Amazon. Since I was in doubt, I just went with the Standard. I should have kept my LE pre-order at Amazon ;) Additional shipping kills it for me via the GS website.

Who hasn't taken advantage of promo code glitches at GameStop? They used to be GREAT! CAG16 + 10% PUR + FREE SHIP + $10 OFF $30/40/50. That's alright though, I'll be one of the few who confess their wrongdoing and embrace the suspension!

 

Back on topic - I wouldn't expect the SE edition to come back in stock on Amazon before the release date. I'd bet you'd be able to vulture one or two dingers off of AWD within the first week or so though!

I tried and got a message saying it doesn't apply to the order. Perhaps because it's a pre order or it falls under their "Other restrictions may apply" phrasing ;(

That's not true at all. They will ban based on volume. If you don't believe me wait until they have a limited item and try to buy 5-10 using the same billing/shipping details.

That's common sense though as the defrauding part is that they know you are a reseller.

 

If you tried doing that in retail stores many of them would do the same thing as its at managers discretion and usually the manager isn't an idiot and knows what's up. 

 

Normally they should use quantity purchasing limits but it's impossible to do that with every item. At the same time you can't sell an unlimited amount of something to someone just because they have the money. 

 

They're not going to sell their entire stock to someone they know is a reseller.

 

Hence why you were banned from amazon and I think target and gamestop. Yet you cry the blues wondering why.
