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!

The Chrome line cars are exclusive to CE edition but what about the Carbon pre-order cars? Will we see them for free on the PSN in a few months like what happened to the GT PSP pre-order cars?

Every place is sold out. You can’t get the CE as far as I know. You can’t buy it from that Amazon link. Amazon has been sold out a good while.

Ahh! I got the invite for the pre-launch party for tonight, but I can’t go, my boss won’t give me the day off ’cause nobody would be able to work on my shift. THAT SUCKS!!! Hopefully I get relieved earlier so I could at least get there before it’s over.

Have a preorder on the standard edition… Too bad my PS3 just yellow lighted me… Oh well, I’ll play it at a friends until I get my replacement…

Anddo said:

November 22nd, 2:20 pm

One of very few CE’s that will actually be worth it.. Can’t wait to get this in my hands.

T3mpr1x said:

I’ve had this pre-ordered for a while now at Amazon. Never pre-ordering from Best Buy again thanks to them putting my Ghost of Sparta pre-order on BACKORDER, thus not delivering the pre-order goods to me…

VillageTorcher said:

November 22nd, 2:30 pm

Cannot wait! I’ll be upgrading my Forza 3 CE keychain with the GT5 CE one.

November 22nd, 2:35 pm

I wish you guys had gone into a little more depth about the preorder bonus Stealth cars.

I’ll get the standard edition for now. Might get the collector’s down the road.

So it seems we can no longer “Get a jump on the competition” by transferring our cars from Prologue. Am I right?

Do the DLC cars go to your GT Life garage, or only Arcade mode?

TUSTIN1 said:

November 22nd, 3:37 pm

What time zone is that countdown ticker in? Because I know the game isn’t coming out at 9PM (EST) tomorrow…

Wow that’s pretty sweet, unfortunately no CE for my house :( but the game will definitely be seeing my ps3 :D. Finally this game is about to be released!!!

JM761 said:

November 22nd, 3:46 pm

Hey guys, I have a question about the Collector’s Edition vs. the Standard:

I have pre-ordered both the standard and the CE, but my standard edition will be arriving first. Is the content on the game discs identical with the two versions, or will I be missing out on my CE benefits by playing and installing the standard edition first?

Is there a code or something that comes with it that unlocks those exclusive cars?

JM761 said:

November 22nd, 3:49 pm

Sorry, I see one of my questions was answered – there’s a voucher for the exlcusive cars.

I still would like to know if the actual game discs are identical, or if the CE has special content on it that I’ll miss out on initially?

Great so what’s the point of a licensed Soundtrack? How about having an original soundtrack for gamers like me who love game music made especially for a game?

The people who like licensed soundtracks use their own music anyway. They wanna play the game with latest rock song or whatever. I personally despise that! It reminds me of those people that add metal to game clips on Youtube. No ones impressed by your music and it doesn’t fit the game!

There’s something special about a game that uses it’s own music. It’s like what if Star Wars had used Led Zeppelin? It just doesn’t work. An original score gives a game it’s own charm and I can associate that original music to the game. Instead of having to associate it with some lame rock song no one will care about in a year.

I know I can add my own music even scores from older GT games, but it’s not the same. GT5 has no theme. No identity. Licensed music just cheapens the experience.

what’s this look like in 3d?
should i go out and get one now?

HongoXIII said:

I canceled my Amazon preorder sicne they would not be shipping my copy out until the 26th and I would get it December 1st or Dec. 3rd (which is bad since I preordered the game in July and had no option to chnage shipping speed). I cannot wait that long so I rushed to Best Buy today, bought a preorder box and will be picking my copy up on Wednesday morning.

With various college papers due next week and finals shortly after, Thanksgiving weekend will be GT5 weekend for me, which is good in my book. Turkey and Gran Turismo, what can be better? I just need to make sure that I don’t fall asleep behind the wheel from all of that turkey!

Orionsangel said:

November 22nd, 4:04 pm

You missed the point. I’m all for custom soundtracks. You can add any song you like. That’s awesome, but at the same time. Doesn’t that kill the purpose of a Licensed soundtrack? Since I can use any Licensed song in the game and then some. If it was an original soundtrack. It would be it’s own thing. I’d have to buy the GT5 soundtrack to hear the songs. They wouldn’t play the original soundtrack on the radio. I’m old school. I like that Mario has a theme. I like that Highway Tokyo Battle has it’s own original music. It’s special to me, rather than Bon Jovi being the soundtrack. If I wanted Bon Jovi as the soundtrack Id hear Bon Jovi while I play the game.

wat the hell!! r u saying now that the promised “transfer your cars from GT5P to GT5” is no longer support? you liars!!

awsome_robot said:

November 22nd, 4:46 pm

so the gt psp cars only transfer to gt5 arcade mode? that’s a bummer.

this better be good or else…..


November 22nd, 4:50 pm

I cant log into the PSN, how am I going to be able to play the game if I can’t log in. all I wanted was a pepsi….

UKHockey said:

November 22nd, 4:52 pm

Orionsangel you are an utter imbecile. GT is a DRIVING game. What do you listen to when you DRIVE? Do you compose your own music while you drive? Does your daily commute have a score? Your examples have an original soundtrack because it fits, licensed music fits GT.

jqtaxpayer said:

November 22nd, 4:54 pm

Can’t wait to see the final product, folks… been preemptively unlocking cars on my PSP all week.

Destiny89 said:

November 22nd, 4:59 pm

Looking forward to the game

Orionsangel said:

November 22nd, 5:10 pm

UKHockey, do you really have to resort to name calling? You can make your point without insulting some one. That’s so rude and inappropriate. Anyway, It’s a Video Game first. I know you want it to be real, but it’s not. I personally don’t like a lot of today’s music and I certainly don’t wanna hear it in the game. I want to hear some original music. They took the easy way out.
