SCEA Announces Gran Turismo 5 Collector's Edition

So we got the release date at yesterday's press conference and not long after, we learned that avid fans of the franchise have another reason to drool.

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced the Gran Turismo 5 Collector's Edition, which will launch right alongside the standard edition on November 2. Featuring a "must-have collection of exclusive items," this is one hell of an appealing package, but as quantities will be limited, you should probably place your pre-order ASAP. For the price of $99.99, you will receive a veritable bevy of goodies, ranging from a diecast car to mount on your entertainment center to DLC. Here's the list:

  • Gran Turismo® 5 game
  • Exclusive limited edition 1:43 scale diecast 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho
  • In-depth 300-page car-lover’s guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital, covering everything from the history of the modern automobile to driving techniques and game reference material
  • Custom etched Gran Turismo key chain
  • Voucher for five (5) exclusive high-end cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades
  • Numbered certificate of authenticity
  • Custom collector’s packaging

But wait, where's my t-shirt? Well, okay, I suppose that's enough good stuff, anyway, and for the GT fan, it's probably well worth the price of admission. You can bet publishers will once again go crazy with Collector's/Limited Editions of big games this fall (they did it last year), just 'cuz they're typically big sellers. So, is this one yours at the end of 2010?

I might have to buy 2 Collector's Editions! One for me, and one as a Christmas gift! =)

I wonder if I can justify this purchase...?

YES I CAN! Especially since it comes with 5 Real-Life cars! Right, Ben?

Looks good, but not SPECTACULAR so i'll pass, although, wouldn't mind that book with driving tips.

A hundred bux?!! Yowzers! I guess the die cast car makes up for the price a little but that's just too much. I'll just take the game thank you.

I've always wanted a GT5 shirt (black) too, but oh well. What interests me about this collectors editon is surely the 300-page book and the die cast model. The 5 DLC is meh, and wished the key chain were those long ones.

Nonetheless, I'm getting it (hoping it won't get sold out when I pre-order/buy it).

The keychains with the "loop" of ribbon on them are called lanyards. I never knew that until I started working for Jagermeister.

Didn't know that. Also (Ed Hardy?!?!), I'd prefer it because of its use more so than "fashion." I hang up my keys and sometimes wear it around my neck if I could (like when I'm wearing a jacket) or when I'm doing mechanical work. They're also easily more noticeable to find.

If you can't find your keys without a "ribbon" attached to them then maybe you shouldn't be driving. ;)

Well sorry if you have something personal with people who prefer lanyards. You misinterpreted my comment bty. I didn't say I couldn't find it or have a hard time doing so with shorter ribbons. I happen to put my keys in my drawer and having a longer ribbon is more noticeable to find, even if it's slight.

*edit

LOL

while I think its cool you get the diecast car and keychain, I still think I'll just get the game and save myself $40. I'll need that $40 to get some of the other amazing titles coming out this fall/winter.

I think there might be some distinction from the article from the PsBlog. According to the psblog the exclusive bonus car(s) with the GT designed livery are for those who pre-orders the game, and possibly different for each retailer.

The 5 DLC voucher pack is a different thing and one that is not exclusive to the Collector's edition, just free. At least that's how I read it.

Quotes:

"Gran Turismo doesn’t cut corners, and neither does this Collector’s Edition. It’s packed full of must-have items that were picked and designed for true car lovers... a voucher for five (5) DLC cars.. "

"..The exciting pre-order program for Gran Turismo 5 offers exclusive and beautiful in-game cars as bonuses, including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, McLaren F1, and more. Each car features an exclusive and stylish Gran Turismo-themed “stealth” livery custom-designed by Polyphony Digital, with select performance upgrades over the standard versions of the cars available in the game."

Hm, haven't seen any UK/GER retailers listing the CE. Any chance you guys know some European retailers that have the GT5 CE in stock and deliver to Germany?

Package looks solid, I hate to admit though, that as a normal buyer I'm gonna get screwed over. Those who dish out extra cash get some 'super powerful cars' which results in an unfair advantage online and easier campaign progression -_-.

Sucks that now every game launches with some sort of cash cow, srry I mean commercial DLC, attached.

I'd like to purchase that CE, looks rad, but in Germany we're gonna have to dish out 100€ for that at least I assume, way too much for a game, even if it's a CE.

Consider it pre-ordered. That book that's included is worth the 40 extra bucks anyways!

Don't know about the book valued about 40 bucks, but definitely worth it in the collection. Beats out pages of art pictures (like in many collector's edition of other games) imo.

Is that a collectible case that comes with the package? I have the MGS4 Limited Edition set and I have to admit that the special case and soundtrack really made it worth it. I wouldn't mind having another "book end" for my collection.

This should be fun. I like purchasing Limited Edition versions. Though, in this case, GT5 L.E. will probably be an over produced product and have no value to it, like GOWIII: Ultimate Edition.

AU release date and LE listing?
what? yes thats correct there are people outside the US that have bought ps3s, even though sony would have you believe otherwise!!!!!!!

my biggest gripe with sony this gen is there so frigging tight a$$ed!
M$ spent so much money getting their E3 note televised by multiple channels.
it was so easy and convenient coming downstairs turning the TV on and boom its there waiting for me.
sonys one i had to turn my laptop on, wait for it to boot up, find my VGA cable, hook it up to the TV than check IGN, for some reason they did not have it yet, so i checked G4TV their site was down so i checked a few others than finally found it on GT though it kept skipping for some reason.
M$ go out of their way to bring it to you, but sony you have to go looking for them.
they did not even have it on their site!
its their show but they dont have it.
its like nickelodeon having a TV show but instead of having it on their site they rely on foxtell putting it on their site.
WTF?????????????????????????????

same goes for advertisement.
how many adds do you think ive seen for move?
ZERO!
how many times do you think move has been in the news?
ZERO!
ive seen so many adds on kinect, EB, game, JBHIFI even stores that are not dedicated to games are plastered in kinect adds, move no where to be seen!
kinect was even on the news the other night they had john materik showing it off, wheres jack showing off move?

this is why sonys in last place, and always will be till they change their attitude!
4 simple plain reasons.

1 US is always first for some reason, with everything, be it beta, competition, game release, hardware release. if someone gets something before the US than the whole worlds going to end!

2 content.
whatever M$ releases in the US they release here, cant say the same about sony.

3 advertisement.
as i said i cant open my eyes without seeing a advertisement for kinect or even a add for a 360 exclusive. MNR just came out guess how many adds ive seen?
ZERO!

4 they spend so much cash just getting content for their customers.
if some one handed me a massive bunch of cash and unlimited download usage i could literally blow a grand on XBLA theres that many games i want to download.
PSN? probably 200 max!
for example where is doom on the PSN? wheres duke nukem 3D? wheres earthworm jim HD? wheres the old sonic games?
thats the main problem with sony, M$ throw cash around like its sunflower seeds grabbing content for their customers.
sony wont, and because of that their customers are loosing out on content.
thats the main reason why i refuse to pay for PSN plus, because sony dont want to spend cash so why should i pay them?
if they were to spend a little cash and get some classics onto the PSN than id be happy to shell some their way, but until then.
