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

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Director, SIEA 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!

What does your $99.99 get you? Read on for the full contents. Not enough detail for you? Head over to GranTurismo.com for even more specifics and images.

  • Gran Turismo 5 on Blu-ray: 1000+ cars, a wealth of tracks, new Course Maker, stereoscopic 3D, kart racing, and more features than we could possibly list here. Seriously — this game is huge.

That is awesome packaging! Will we see those five free cars on PSN Store soon? Or it will be exclusively only to Collector’s Edition?

oh man i’ve been so busy being broke and paying bills that i completely forgot about this game until late last week. Finally.

I was thinking about it, but I don’t really have the money to spare. Just gonna rock the standard edition.

Craazy said:

November 22nd, 12:33 pm

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!

wow that diecast car looks tiny. Doesn’t look worth $100 to me but to each their own I guess.

    Those Kyosho cars go for $40-50 a pop online, they’re high-end. Look it up if you don’t believe me!

dreu81 said:

November 22nd, 12:36 pm

no way can i afford this right now. i’ll be rockin the standard edition too eventually. i’ll be sure to give them some time to patch or update a bit first.

Nice hopefully I can get my CE midnight tomorrow.

KingDubin said:

November 22nd, 12:36 pm

Pre-Ordered the Collector’s Edition two days after it was announced!

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

    I don’t know about down the line, but not at launch. If you want em, get that preorder in!

Joe03oy said:

I pre-order both version. Hopefully, I’ll received it on Nov 24th. Can we buy those pre-order bonus car in PSN?

    Nope — they’re exclusive forevermore to the C.E.

jimmyfoxhound said:

November 22nd, 12:39 pm

You know you’ll be selling these “exclusive” DLC cars on the PSN a few months from now for 1.99 XD I know that little book and keychair are hardly worth the extra 40 bucks… but I’m still getting it.. dang you PD! Stop taking my monies!!

    Sid Shuman said:

    November 22nd, 1:11 pm

    Not true, actually — just confirmed internally that the DLC cars will be exclusive forevermore to the C.E.

Blkant said:

It’s a shame we don’t get the signature edition…

This is great for GT fans, too bad I’m not one of them.

Really annoying blue light in that unboxing video.

I will only be buying the standard edition of GT5. I do like that book though. I wonder if there is any chance for a digital version of that book to be available from the PlayStation Store?

D-Squad3 said:

November 22nd, 12:48 pm

Hopefully you guys will also do an unboxing video of the LBP 2 CE and KZ3 Helghast Edition.

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    You can bring the GT PSP cars into the Arcade Mode of GT5.

Butters360 said:

Definitely going for the Collector’s Edition. Polyphony Digital has more than earned my $100. This is going to be my first Gran Turismo!

Can’t wait I’ve had it ordered for what seems like forever and think it’s totally worth the extra cash.. wife doesn’t but I do.

SippiHUN said:

November 22nd, 12:53 pm

Nice one… however the EU version without the car, and key chain, costs the same. I hope Sony is just joking.

Ebolaboi said:

November 22nd, 12:53 pm

Dang! I though the die cast car was going to be bigger. Dunno about the CE now.

    It’s extremely detailed though. I purposely shot it like an actual car commercial to complete the illusion. =D

    Also, those Kyosho cars go for $40-50 online so the C.E. bundle isn’t a bad deal at all.

Dear PS Blog,

Do you know if the game will give Playstation Home rewards for maybe getting specific trophies?

Thanks in advance!

    No word on this, but I know you can get free GT5 racing suits in Home for a limited time — check out the Central Plaza and Theater.

SmooshyKing said:

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).

Nice Gideon shirt there Jeff.

November 22nd, 12:56 pm

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

    Thanks for the feedback. But don’t forget about the 300-page book from the Polyphonal Digital guys — it’s a great coffee table book and is my personal favorite item in the set.

Kirkpad said:

So Jeff, how is it?

bri0654 said:

I preordered this WAY back in July.
November 24 cant come soon enough

AFC_ZMan said:

November 22nd, 1:01 pm

i’m trading in 5 games, some under 3 months old to get the collector edition. i learned how to drive with this series. definitely worth it.

SOOPERGOOMAN187 said:

November 22nd, 1:08 pm

So since nobody else since the first announcement many many months ago have said this; Can I have a FREE Collectors Edition? I’m all the way out here, been on the blog since day one and have never won any of the contests. I would play it for hours and hours on end and live stream it on ustream or justn.tv. Hook Me up Jeff or Sid, puhleeeeaaaasssse….

KingDubin said:

November 22nd, 1:10 pm

While you two guys are on here hopefully you can answer this question once and for all:

Is the YouTube Replay Uploading Feature still in the game?

BlueShadow17 said:

November 22nd, 1:10 pm

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.

    We wanted to include a full-sized, fully functional car but the box wasn’t big enough :-)

November 22nd, 1:12 pm

i so cant wait, mine has been preorderd since it was available, I had bought the older “The Cars of Gran Turismo” 2002 Book to read in the mean time while waiting for this with its reading material.. i havent even opened up my OPM out its nice wrapping for this month lol.. i stay on the GT PSP for i fell its more like this game then GT5 Prologue with its newer physics.. hope my money transfers overjust like the cars do!!

Rhez said:

November 22nd, 1:16 pm

Not a big car fan but this game looks spectacular. I’ll probably end up picking it up at some time in the near future.

tzimakos said:

November 22nd, 1:19 pm

Excellent! I am picking up my CE on wednesday; pre ordered months ago and it is (almost) finally here!

Cock-pit – check
Wheel – check
5.1 Surround sound – check
1080p LCD – check

KingDubin said:

November 22nd, 1:19 pm

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!

PagingDrUgly said:

November 22nd, 1:21 pm

OH WOW… that apex car guide sold me on this one!

Since the CE cars are exclusive, when do we start seeing some DLC? additional premium cars? tracks? etc.

xtremekid77 said:

November 22nd, 1:23 pm

Could we still pre-order this amazing editon?

Knight613 said:

November 22nd, 1:24 pm

Should be getting my copy tomorrow from the Subway contest. Can’t wait to finally play it!

PuppetShoJustice said:

November 22nd, 1:27 pm

Your Gideon shirt reminded me of the fact that the Scott Pilgrim DLC trophies still absolutely refuse to sync.

At least the Crazy Taxi ones were fixed.

AAAChampions said:

any chance of getting that apex book elsewhere besides the ce?

Yoinazek said:

I only want the guide. Someone add me to the PSN and sell it to me through eBay.

Fenris15 said:

November 22nd, 1:41 pm

Ok, if nothing else, this game (oh frakit, SERIES!) is why I stick to the Playstation lineup. I don’t even have a PS3, but I Will Be Buying This Game! Yes, if I have to order the Deluxe box I will!

jimmyfoxhound said:

November 22nd, 1:41 pm

That’s kinda cool if the chrome line cars are actually exclusive! Thanks for the info Jeff! Now I don’t feel so bad about spending 100 bucks on this… >_> ok now that I said that I think I do.. just a bit though, Kaz! I’m sure it will be worth it!! XD
