It is a little hard to see, but the the latest Future Shop mailer (which is Canadian, btw) has some interesting surprises/information for fans of GTA 5 (and Max Payne 3).
Firstly, if you’re considering ordering Max Payne 3 and will definitely be buying GTA 5 (so… all of you!), then if you do it through Future Shop (which is owned by Best Buy), you’ll get $20 off a copy of GTA 5 when it’s released.
Secondly, if you take a closer look at the image above, you’ll see Future Shop have GTA 5 listed for a “Winter 2012” release. In Canada, this is around the end of December (so lets call it the pre-Christmas period) through until March 2013. Of course we wouldn’t put any money on those dates being accurate, but a pre-Christmas launch would certainly be welcome!
By the way, Best Buy in the US (Future Shop’s parent company) are running a similar Max Payne 3 pre-order bonus for their customers, but from what I can tell it only entitles you to some free DLC. Don’t worry though, I’m sure there will be plenty of GTA 5 deals in the US closer to launch time!
