    [top]Grand Theft Auto V ($59.99)

    Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

    What the hell is a pre order through a digital store? It downloads automatically, but obvisously it can't do it without the PS3 being on. So what's the diffrence if you buy it at the moment after the game has been released or 'pre order' it?

    I mean, there's no limited copies or something. lol.

    Does the game download as soon as you pre-order it and you just can't play until it releases? If that is the case it makes sense because you could have the game ready to install and then when it releases just install and play instead if waiting for 18gb worth of data to download before you play.
