Our opinion:

Quite extensive what Rockstar Games offer here in extras in the different editions. It's just a shame that some of the bonuses also provide advantages in the game or offer exclusive content such as missions. This is a trend that is quite alarming for games that already cost 60 € in the normal version. One can only hope that, despite all the euphoria, the players will not allow too much money to be pulled out of their pockets. In the recent past, Middle-earth: Shadow of War has already caused a lot of discussion. There were even calls for boycotts and a lot of uproar on social media platforms.
