As a seasoned buyer of Brady guide books for the various Rockstar titles over the years I've always found them a very handy companion. Yes of course you can find plenty of tips/hints and 'walkthrough guides' on many websites for free but at around a tenner I've always considered the physical product an essential compliment to the game.
The only problem with the softback copies being they get rather old, worn and tatty very quickly. So having just pre-ordered the Collector's Edition from Tesco at a very competitive £95 this hardback costing less than 3 quid more than the softback is a no brainer.
Here's hoping the respective chosen carriers get them both to me cometh the day, roll on September the 17th!
#Slight revision on the price as when I pre-ordered this it was £12.79 and the softback was a tenner, both editions' prices seem to have rocketed since then.
##And today(22/08) it's been on a freefall from £17 down to just over £13. From previous experience of buying gaming guide books I'd say grab it now because it will definitely start climbing again as we get closer to release day.
Had you got to my post a wee bit earlier you would have been suggesting I work for Asda rather than Tesco. I did initially order the CE with them but I then discovered the Cohen family were a fiver cheaper so edited my post accordingly, I do hope that's ok with you?
Very good question, I read somewhere the lithograph comes free with all pre-orders of this hardback and it says in the product description on here that it does. Though I noticed Game claiming it's only included 'exclusively' in theirs so would not like to give you a definite answer. Contact Amazon CS and see if they can help you

Now that's the american pricing but I have to assume that the british version will be the same..................
