Some of us like to hold off our game purchases until the publisher themselves roll out something that is extra special as part of an enticement. Take for instance, the collection of Warcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 titles, where if you waited long enough and played the patience card to the full, you would have been able to get the main title along with all of the other expansion sets after a while. Hence, the same logic should apply somewhat where Grand Theft Auto V is concerned, especially with the announcement of the Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition and Collector’s Edition that are already available for pre-order from today onwards.
These two editions are part of a worldwide pre-order exercise at participating retailers, and in order to further sweeten the deal, folks who have decided to throw their lot behind either edition of the Grand Theft Auto V (including the Special Edition, Collector’s Edition or the standard retail edition) franchise between now and September 17th will be able to gain access to pilot the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle, which should be enticement enough. The Grand Theft Auto V Collector’s Edition will cost you $149.99, while those who want to pick up the Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition will have to fork out $79.99 a pop. [Press Release]
Mailbox is a newly popular iPhone email client that has gained quite a substantial user base in the short time that it has become available for everyone. A testament to its popularity is the fact that Dropbox acquired it and vowed to keep it a separate entity, while calling it “simple, delightful and beautifully engineered.” We reported last month that Mailbox for iPad was being developed and the developers also revealed that the were considering making a Mac version. While we don’t know about that yet, Mailbox for iPad has finally gone live and is now available for download from iTunes App Store.
The new version 1.3 update makes Mailbox for iOS a universal app, meaning that it now brings native support for the iPad. There’s a caveat if you use an email service other than Gmail. For now, Mailbox can only work with Gmail accounts, so you’re out of luck if Google’s email is not your cup of tea. Nevertheless, Mailbox is available for download absolutely free. You might want to check it out and see for yourself what the buzz is all about.
