Anticipated by everyone except for N (haha!), Grand Theft Auto V comes out September 17th and I can’t wait. I’ve been eating up all the content that’s been thrown at us, but one thing that has really piqued my interest was this particular pre-order offer from the Microsoft Store.
Most of the time, I won’t pre-order games, I’ll just pick them up the day they release or if it’s a downloadable game, the first day I’m able to play. When I do pre-order something, it’s because there are awesome deals to be had. I’m not talking about this “receive a special gun” or “get a different outfit” shit, I’m talking beta access, like you got for pre-ordering SimCity or stuff that’s actually worth money, like what Microsoft is doing by giving out 1600 Microsoft Points when you pre-order Rockstar’s newest Grand Theft Auto game. That’s $20 worth of Points that I would buy anyway so I might as well pre-order it from the Microsoft Store.
Keep in mind that if you pre-order it from the Microsoft Store, it’s not guaranteed to arrive on release date like Amazon or other retailers do.
