Dear Rockstar, I Enjoy Your Games Immensely, But Will Not Be Paying Half A Grand To Read How They Were Made

Digital + Analogue: The Art and Science of Rockstar Games (Image courtesy Kotaku)
By Andrew Liszewski

To commemorate the 10+ years of the Rockstar Games label, which was founded in 1998, the company has worked with German publisher Stiedl to create this 3 volume, 544 page hardcover tome that features everything from original illustrations to wireframe models to advertising to even what inspired the people and places seen in many of their games. It also includes a DVD with behind the scenes exclusive content, and quite honestly, looks like a fascinating read. However, the publisher has set an RRP of £310 which translates to over $470! That’s almost half a grand! Thankfully Amazon.co.uk has it currently listed for £75.65 (available sometime next month) which works out to a slightly more reasonable $115.

    I too enjoy the Rockstar games but 470+ for something I'll be able to find on the internet if I look hard enough. Not entirely sure if it worth it. Still be interesting to own, that is if it was given to me or something. I can't really see myself even spending 115 for something from Rockstar I can't put in my xbox and waste hours of my life.

    i think that buying the books costs more than buying all the games
