The old saying “good things come to those who wait” may just ring true if this latest snippet of Gran Turismo 5 news is accurate. We already know about the ridiculously sexy Gran Turismo 5 Collector’s Edition, which features some swish car related DLC, a 300+ page Collector’s Edition book and a die cast 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery – but that may not be the only special edition set to grace the PS3 if what the head of Sony Computer Entertainment India, Atindriya Bose, says is true.
Speaking to IVG he had the following to say;
For GT5, there are two collector’s editions. One is the game plus some added content and collectibles, which (has already been announced), while the other is in a really big package with a lot of paraphernalia that goes beyond the game. It’s all car-related, but I’m unaware of the exact contents. That being so expensive, we may not directly order it from Europe, but we could bring in limited quantities from Sony in the Middle East. We’ll also be working with Mercedes in some way around the GT5 launch, but we’re yet to decide the specifics of that.
Amazon.fr seems to back this up with the listing of Gran Turismo 5 – édition ultime, which is coming in at a wallet destroying €189.95.
Is a second – ‘Ultimate Edition’ – something that interests you, the consumer?
