Is this a temporary discount and the prices will shoot back up after the game is released? I mean I am going to end up spending $60 anyways so might be worth getting the special version now.

It looks like the price is only good for a pre-purchase through R*'s launcher.

I only just now noticed this. Does this mean people who intend on buying the PC version from Steam have to wait an additional month to play the game? How does this effect preorders?

I am guessing they will have a separate preorder option for this. It isn't even on Steam yet, I have checked. If not, I guess Steam players don't get any option for preorder perks.

Thanks for letting me know. I guess it is worth just biting the bullet now then for it. You get more for your money this way.

I wasn't exactly too excited about getting another game launcher for my PC. This is in regards to R* new launcher from a month or so ago. Personally I'd prefer getting this on Steam. I like Steam for several reasons; Forums, user reviews, listing friends games, achievements, being able to buy Steam keys for cheaper elsewhere and redeeming them on Steam. But it's not coming to Steam until December. And R*'s launcher/store has the $20s off + some free older games. So I got it there. Installing the 2 free games  I've never played before worked fine; Bully and LA Noire. Tip : I found it helpful to pin my multiple game launchers on the taskbar. There is still room. For now. :)

That is the thing. They are offering stuff right now and I get the feeling there will be nothing special with the Steam release which bums me out considering it is another month's wait.
