Two GT5 Collector’s Editions Coming?

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?

  1. I have Already bought a G27 steering wheel for GT5 (Buy it from America its only like £240 if u do), and intend to buy a 3D T.V for this game, so i suppose i should go the whole way and get this special edition also.
    GT5 will be the best game for a decade.

    • For your bank account’s sake, I hope it is

  2. thats silly money for a game, but the thing is people will buy it, oh dear

    • To be honest i’d pay $2000 just to have it now.

  3. Way to expensive for me! Ill just stick to the unspecial edition then :)

  4. Just found a pic of it all here: http://yfrog.com/gihl4j

  5. omg why dont the uk get it i would pay that much for anything gt5 related why are we always getting put down really unfair

  6. Ohh I remember getting a keyring with GT4, and a glass sticker.

  7. thats very random, a diecast ”2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery ”. if any diecast car was included, i thought it would of been the mercedes on the front cover. ”guess im wrong”

  8. Not into Car Racing games but this one certainly generating a lot of buzz at the moment

  9. No matter the cost, people on NeoGAF will still buy 5 copies. I’m only grabbing the vanilla GT5 since I’ve already pre-ordered the CE for Starcraft 2 and will get the CE for WOW Cataclysm.

  10. Sweet Christ, what is that? £150? What could possibly justify a price that high?

    Only thing I could imagine being worth that price is a box containing the regular limited edition of the game, a classics HD collection of the PS2 GT games and a steering wheel controller of some sort.

    Then again, given the relatively lacking content in that £109 God of War trilogy box, I’m guessing it’ll be some serious tat not worth the scratch.
