It seems that Australians really have it with the pricing issues. The Grand Theft Auto IV special edition will cost AU $149.95 and the normal edition being AU $119.95, which is around USD $130-110.

About the special editions contents. The Special Edition pack will contain the game, a metal lock box and key, the Grand Theft Auto IV artwork book, a Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack CD and the limited edition black Rockstar duffle bag. Sounds good and looks good.

Remember, Rockstar is showing a new Grand Theft Auto IV trailer this Friday, December 6, 2007 titled "Move Up Ladies". We will keep you updated.
