A blimp! You can get a blimp! Look at me, look at how excited I am over a blimp! I'm tittering here and I never titter! Alright, let's just remain calm, cool, and collected here for the rest of this.
First off, there's good news for fans of pre-ordering stuff. Grand Theft Auto V is now available for pre-order on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms. You can probably find pre-order information at the usual suspects (Amazon, GameStop, maybe a local joint that only you know about).
When you pre-order any version of the game, you will be given access to the "Atomic Blimp" in-game vehicle.
However, if you want more from your pre-orders, have no fear because there are two other versions of the game to tackle.
