All the Options: Gran Turismo 5 Collector’s Edition Unboxed

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Nov 22, 2010 // Senior Manager, Social Media

It may not come with “rack-and-peanut steering” like the Homer car, but Gran Turismo 5’s Collector’s Edition is still an object of admiration for any car lover. Jeff and I got our grubby paws on the first in-house box and have defiled its pristine shrink wrap for your viewing pleasure in the video above. Love that new-car smell!

While I was fully on board with the Deluxe….my wife was not. So in a tight money situation she was only willing to allow for the Standard. Which honestly was OK because I still get the game and thats what really mattered!

BTW, will the “Stealth” Cars that wasn’t offered as Pre-Order Bonuses in the US will be avilable for DLC ala GTPSP?

Can’t wait for the reviews to roll in, although I’m a bit nervous after reading some of the comments I’m seeing posted on various sites.

It sounds like they spent a ton of time tweaking stuff that 95% of people won’t notice, and ignored the stuff that 95% of people will notice (like damage).

when GT5 Prologue came out soooo many months ago we were stoked we loved the game and when we found out that GT 5 was coming “soon” we got even more excited.

Dont get me wrong WE LOVE THIS GAME but a $40 dollar difference for the collectors edition vs the standard edition that really doesnt offer up that much? a diecast car thats tiny, 5 DLC cars you can get later and a keychain IMHO makes the collector edition a joke and we will be getting the standard edition on tuesday cmon Kazanori and Sony and polyphony digital we are still in a RECESSION give us a break

Already pre-ordered CE but was disappointed at the size of the car model. I knew the game would be good since I’ve played the others so the delays didn’t matter to me. I just hope that Polyphony/Sony keeps giving us more content to add to what should be the best racing game of all-time.

Oh, and another question:

In a YouTube Gameplay video from TaxiGamer’s Live Stream, I heard Scorpions’ “The Sails Of Charon”. is that song from the actual NA-NTSC Soundtrack? Because if it is, I want to give Chuck Doud and all the Music team some Dap AND two fist bumps for putting in some Awesome (read: Uli Jon Roth; He wrote the song) Heavy Metal Music!

And also, are we going to be able to mix songs from the original Sony soundtrack with our tunes?

Thanks!
