Really?? Last I checked GFCI circuit breakers were a lot more expensive.
Not going to get into the number of protected outlets per GFCI but having multiple may have an advantage. If a GFCI trips it will only kill the power to one wall (or room section, depending on how wired) - the whole room would not go dark.
