Not seen this anywhere else apart from the forum where I saw it linked. Seems Employees of Rockstar I think, maybe game store employees, are getting a special edition employee's version of the game. Looks fantastic to me, a shame Rockstar didn't make more copies like this for the general public.

I saw a photo of the box when these were sent out a while ago... Hadn't seen the guts of it though. Sucks. I'd pay extra.
Psy
Looks awesome, although most of that stuff, at least in my experience, is the stuff you throw in the back of your wardrobe and forget about after the game's been released. I've got TONS of GTA themed stuff like that from the past few years from Rockstar and it's just a collectors item really. Got a big box full of random GTA merch like GTA SA bandana's, socks, poker chips, dice, Vice City sweat bands and beachballs, GTA4 statues of happiness, LCPD shirts, hundreds of stickers and plenty of generic t-shirts just to name a few... Not to mention the custom Lost & Damned themed Xbox 360 Elite... tongue.gif

Having said that I would still gladly take one of them Red Dead Boxes! smile.gif

[/Unintended brag about my free shit] happy.gif
Kuwong
Either you put that stuff out on display or I'm gonna come take it and put it on display in my room for no one to see but me!
Psy
I might have to take a photo of all my stuff once I get my room tidied up a bit. There's got to be close to 100 different items smile.gif
Kuwong
Knew I should have started a fansite when I was a kid, if only for the free stuff.
Psy
Not to mention the 3 (and counting) free trips to NYC to play games before they're released wink.gif
JamieMilne
i dont think anybody with a gta fansite can go, can they haha ?

Well I'm a games tester to be, so one day I might be getting paid to play games full time. tongue.gif Still, free trip to New York would be nice.
Psy
Good luck with the testing. I've spoken to a few guys who've been involved in that before and it's not as glamorous as you might think. Generally involves long hours doing the same thing over and over to the point where you don't actually want to play the game once it's finished haha. It's something I'd like to try out though if/when I move into working in the games industry.
Kuwong
Yeah I know well the risks, did it for a week once before, got a three month contract coming up soon. I still say it's better than working anywhere else, I'd rather test the same thing over and over than clean toilets or work at burger king! Thanks for the tips all the same!
Psy
Totally agreed. It's the first step in the industry really. I know guys at EA who started off testing and they're product managers now so enjoy it. There are some people at Rockstar who tested GTA4's multiplayer for a year, racked up thousands of hours and still love it, so I guess it just depends on the game you're testing and stuff. Good luck though, keep me updated with how it's going smile.gif

on a related note:
Kuwong
whats that, the Employees edition or a different edition?
TreeFitty
Fansite Edition. wink.gif
Kuwong
They make all these editions and people in America who went to a midnight release got a deck of cards, yet there is no "offical" limited/special/collectors edition? Disappointing.

I know 3 people who work as game testers for SONY Liverpool and the job can be pretty boring having to constantly stop and start the game to write suff like:

Player selects Y: Blah blah
Player selects ^: Blah blah
Pla..........................................you get the idea.

Suprised it got through customs with the bundle of "TNT" and the bar of soap made me lol. tongue.gif

Edit: Was wondering what that little thing was in Psy's box so had another rummage in mine - dice in a little leather holder.
Hmm ebay? unsure.gif

Ten dollars is pretty nifty for a deck of Rockstar cards. Yeah it's ten dollars profit for someone but you'll have the cards.
