Please remember everyone, that shopto pre-order prices are not set in stone, and if the price increases they will notify you. Pre-ordered items are only processed on their systems a few days before release, so they will be able to change the price.

Thanks, ive pre-ordered
#12
Thanks, if only I had known before :)
#13
Will be a bargain if they stick to this price - Game are currently asking £70 for it!
#14
dunno if i should get this.....i am looking for the special edition but i dont know if i want it on ma xbox 360 or ps3......i gotta quickly decide....if i do put the pre-order in can i cancel it later??
#15
Getting it on 360 rather than PS3 myself. Achievements and better online service as well as exclusive content :thumbsup: Think I'm just gonna get the standard game myself though. Not fussed about the extra [email protected] It'll just clog up my house!

Quidco doesn't work on preorders at Shopto unfortunately :(

Voted hot and rep given ;)
#16
I'd plump for the 360 version, Microsoft have given Rockstar $50m for exclusive download content so there's surely going to be something desirable in there.
#17
is this a good investment?

I'd also go for the 360 version. From what I've read recently, any multi-format games are going to be a touch superior on the 360 due to it's ease of programing compared to the PS3.

What an awesome Special Edition set btw, really creative packaging.
#19
It says RRP is £44.99 so not really a huge saving.
#20
I reckon it's more likely the RRP is £69.99 or at least more than £44.99. Other shops have it listed for a lot more than Shopto.

360 RRP for standard editions is generally £49.99 isn't it. Especially for AAA titles like this. There's a lot included in the LTD Ed SE package.
#21
There's very little chance they'll honour the price, they've had the preorder open for a while now and I suspect they were anticipating it would take the same form as the the Gears of War special edition (metal box and art book), hence the price.

That said, ShopTo are often the cheapest place around and very quick service so it is worth getting a preorder in. To confirm, they don't charge your card until dispatch and if I remember correctly, they will email you if the price changes.
#22
I cant see anywhere to add to basket or pre order list, have set up an account. Am I missing something?

EDIT-Have done it now, had to choose the link on the pre order top 10 on the right side of homepage rather than search for it where it didnt offer me the option to add to pre order
#23
Shopto have said, the more people pre-order a certain game the cheaper is.

"Depends how good a deal we get with the distributer. Generally speaking the more units we buy the better unit rate which means on the bigger games like Forza, DiRT we can crack the price down more because we order more due to the high demand. On games like "Barbies Princess Horsey Ride" *Nb Game May not be Real* demand is low so we buy less units and the rate is worse.

But we always bargain with the distributer for the best price for you guys!

Loads of preorders = high demand = more units ordered from Distributor = Better price for you guys!" - Windle of Shopto

i've also heard of this.


I think its something to do with the disc type,probley wrong tho
#26
Just found this. Very interesting. I'm quite surprised that this is the case considering how well sony did with the PS1 and 2 when it came to ease of use of the developers. Maybe it will change in a year or so:

I emailed ShopTo about the price.

It is NOT set in stone, their small print states that pre-order prices are subject to change.

GAME currently has it at £69.99 !!!!! ouch!

Gone for this, cheers OP!:thumbsup:

Thes PS3 is built around the PS2. If you check the PS2 out and load up MGS2: Sons Of Liberty and then do the same on the Xbox, the PS2 version looks superior. This is becasue the PS2/3 can offer superior graphics if the developers are good enough to tap into it. Thats why Gran Turismo/Metal Gear/Final Fantasy etc... looks so good (skilled developers) but everything else looks pretty dross (not so skilled).

Also, if a game is released on the PS2 first, it tends to look better on that console as the game was designed with that console specifically in mind.

Finally, i will say that the PS3 looks very good at the moment because the developers are used to the Sony hardware. The Xbopx 360's GPU is new and alien, and once the developers understand how to write decent code for it the 360 GFX should improve drastically.
#31
It certainly seems that the Xbox 360's GPU has far more potential than the PS3's according to what I read. It's the PS3's cell processor that may help claw back the difference and eventually past the 360.

What?! What you on about? This is a UK deals site, not a PS3 fanboys forum.

Did you even read it, i wasnt being fanboyish at all, jus trying to point out that as the game is being developed for both platforms equally, MS have exclusive content and better online play, the 360 version is probably the best one to buy.

Hopefully they wont do the dirty and up the price two days before disapatch. Are they even legally allowed to?

Small print states:
"pre-order prices are subject to change"

So chances of getting it at that price, is slim to none.

From Website.
"The price which is displayed when you make a pre order is subject to change and can increase or decrease if the Retail Price changes."

Pre-order temporarily stopped due to high demand. If you have Pre-Ordered we will dispatch your copy as soon as we receive the product.

I would argue completely the opposite. The PS3 architecture is bananas (with plenty of untapped potential), whilst the 360 is far more traditional.

The real drawback of the PS3 is the memory bottleneck which doesn't leave as much available for textures as the 360.

Essentially the battle will be between the raw processing power of the PS3 and the undisclosed secrets of the 360's GPU.

The price on the website might be going UP !!!! RRP should be £79.99

* The Grand Theft Auto IV Art Book, featuring never-before-seen production artwork from GTA4

* Selected soundtrack CD from Grand Theft Auto IV, featuring new material from top artists, only available on this release.

Their reply :-

Hi,

I will ask to rectify immediately

You can see also the RRP that is 44.99 and is referring to the Game only.. As you are aware the RRP for the below products with all the accessories will be 79.99 and not 44.99.

Regards
