      @AGTA5pUnCaKe Hello AGTA5pUnCaKe the Collectors Edition included the weapons and rides due to it being collectors edition and therefor being more expensive. The special edition had more items than the regular edition also this is what brings the value to each of these editions. Thanks and sorry for any inconveniences hopefully this helped you out.

    Will the DLC portion of the Special Edition and Collectors Eddition be made availible for sale? Many of us starting on the next gen platforms and those of us that missed out on the current gen platforms would still like to buy the DLC. I purchaced the digtal download version of this game as soon as I found out existed. At the time I did not know there were 3 differnt versions because only the regular version was availible. If I had known that was the case I wouldn't have purchaced it. Many people will avoid purchacing any digital download in the future from the R* if we will not be able to get full games.

                      I preordered the game, I didn't get any special custom clothing characters for online.. furthermore I can't put my crew emblem on the back or front of my leather jacket, and I created the crew. I'm the crew leader.
                      • Drb20183 days, 9 hours agoReplyFlag
                        @east420side hello eastside420side you pre-ordered the regular game not the collectors edition. The collectors edition is the version of the game that received the bullpup shotgun and the 12 gauge. As for the lack of logo on your leather jacket that would be due to the level you are in your crew, when you rank up your crew you get bonus items like crew logos on clothes and cars, you also can unlock crew car color, tire smoke and parachute smoke, along with masks. Sorry for any inconveniences, hopefully you can rank up your crew as quickly as possible, and good luck.

                      And as a personal request, Bring Freeway bike Back!

                          Will the CE package be made available again and/or will the CE content be made available as part of a future DLC? Also, please stop giving such great exclusives to a single retailer. I had trouble making a CE pre-order on the gamestop website and I also was unable to secure a pre-order from my closest Gamestop retail store as they only took a limited amout of CE preorders. I would have much preferred if the CE was available through amazon to avoid all that mess.

                            @mobileobsession Yeah, please allow those who were not able to obtain the CE to purchase the extra cars and such for an additional fee, especially with retailer exclusive stuff.

                            @mobileobsession I can confirm that new copies of the Collector's Edition are being sold in the Rockstar Warehouse. I have not received any word to my various inquires regarding a separately available Downloadable equivalent to the electronic portion of the CE content.
