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!

Oopsy. I forgot to post this: Someone mailed me to post that the things you do in GT5 cannot be copied. If you, the person who’s reading this comment since you have nothing better to do, want me to post something, PSN-mail me.

I paid the pre order for the collectors edition in full, will be more than worth the wait after all these years.

like many others have said. I am kinda disappointed in the size of the model car. I can get over that i guess, doubt my wife would have let me display it anyways, but would have been nice to have. can’t wait for the game, like many others my game won’t get to me until some time between Dec 1-3, which suck, but my birthday is Dec 4th so i guess i can be slightly ok with it.

Guys, learn to edit your vids better. Your voices are too low, so I have to turn the volume up, then the music comes on about 10X louder than your voices. Come on, get a little balance here so I don’t have to keep adjusting the volume.

those cars will be on the ps store trust me, give it it’s timed exculsive to it, put a 1.99 a piece or 4.99 bundle price on it and watch it sell like crazy, all it takes is threads and post on the web site, the fans always gets what they want,

Thank you SCEA and Polyphony Digital.

Long time GT fan since 1998.
Getting the CE, that guide is too important. The extra cars are not a bad deal either hehe.

By the way can you guys tell Kazunori that we understand and appreciate his work?

Don’t worry ’bout those who whine, your games are legendary.

I’m getting the collector’s edition. I’m excited about it. Nice video it made me want the game more.

where have you been looking that Kyosho diecasts go for only $40 to $50? :o The ones I’ve seen online go for a fair bit more than that.

glody said:

November 22nd, 11:51 pm

Soooooo, yea… after watching the video and reading about it… I just switched from the standard version to the collectors addition. Looking forward to thumbing through that 300 page book. :)

Minus $120 for me, but hopefully a good portion of that goes straight to the developers pockets. Much deserved. Cant wait to tear into this game!


November 23rd, 12:38 am

i preordered the standed game can anyone tell me how many cars are on there


November 23rd, 12:39 am

i hope its all of the cars but the 5 you get with the ce


November 23rd, 2:54 am

TUSTIN1 said:

November 23rd, 3:25 am

@113 – The official GT website has the complete list…

I already pre-ordered the standard edition a few months ago when Newegg had it on sale ($12 off and free shipping, pretty good deal for a game that wasn’t even out yet! I got the same deal for Little Big Planet 2 as well. Newegg is awesome.)

Lugoves said:

November 23rd, 4:24 am

I pre-ordered the standard … gonna check if it’s ‘too late’ to switch … this sounds awesome and has great value!

I already preordered the CE but I have two questions please.
So do we get to transfer anything at all from Prologue like they said we would back when Prologue came out?
Can we use the CE cars throughout the game or just in Arcade mode?

I can give you Blu-ray disc give me the rest of the box… ;) Jeff was so exited I imagine how Sid would feel if he would pay for this set =))

Great job on the video guys!

On that note for the next unboxing video you should definitely lose the blue light, you should be showing off the content in natural light so we can actually see what it looks like clearly.

Hope there is one for the Helghast edition!

what a same…..Polyphony/Sony just released GT5 on north america……here in south america not even a predition of a posible release date…..what a same!!!!!

Elnath10 said:

November 23rd, 11:49 am


I think you meant “shame”… anyway.. the game is available at that day all over the world.. not just in US.

In a few hours, I’ll get my copy here in Mexico :)

MrMortality said:

November 23rd, 1:00 pm

Hey guys! One question. When does the US get the SIGNATURE EDITION treatment? If no, then why not?
Getting CE BTW! Have been playing GT since GT1 on PS1

RyanTL said:

November 23rd, 1:38 pm

This is £130 in the UK. Is there any reason why there is such a large price difference? The US version is only $40 more than the standard version but the UK CE is £90 more, the cost is even more to us Brits when exchange rates are taken into account!

RyanTL said:

November 23rd, 1:47 pm

Oops, ignore my last comment. I just noticed the CE is lacking a lot of things that are included in the SE. But £90 over the standard game is still a bit steep in my opinion, unless I win the SLS Merc in which case I will say it’s a bargain.

Rios said:

November 23rd, 2:45 pm

I pre-ordered the CE a while back, cant wait to pick it up tomorrow! I don’t care about how small the car is, I ordered it more for the exclusive additional cars and the book then the model, besides it will fit perfectly on my desk.

navyjoker2000 said:

November 23rd, 3:38 pm

So we won’t be able to transfer anything from GT5:Prologue?

xx666Kris666xx said:

November 23rd, 8:48 pm

xx666Kris666xx said:

November 23rd, 8:49 pm

can’t wait to pick up my SE & CE in the morning, can’t believe GT5 is finally here w00t ;)

lopro_319 said:

November 23rd, 10:59 pm

I’ve been a fan of the Gran Turismo series since it came out on the PS One around ’98 and have been waiting for this 5th installment. I will be up early to pickup it from Bestbuy. I pre-ordered the C.E. :) Great video!!!

igorrocks2 said:

November 24th, 8:01 am

3 years in the making I actually scared to put it in Blu-Ray tray )) I can’t believe I have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its a shame to play it without 3DTV for the honor of the game I will choose SONY to support company again 4th Sony LCD TV in the house… Let’s do some shopping is there any good sets for at least 4000$ with 3D glasses?!( the negative side of it I will have to to fly a lot to earn my money back for 2 weeks non stop) Thanks god I work for Cisco

Got my copy of the collector’s edition but I’m looking for those Gamestop exclusive car codes. Were they included in the box or was I supposed to get a voucher?

Maxthunder1 said:

November 25th, 8:02 am

LOL leave it to sony to alienate their GT fans by not putting up the GT5 CE editions 5 extra cars as DLC. It seems that sony and other companys seem to forget that it is the gamers that they make their money off of. I dont know sony needs to make the 5 extra cars avaiable to those people who are having a rough time in this economy. I think this is just too funny and a really stupid move on sony or polyphone digitals part. Sometimes these game developers/compants really are stupid morons LMFAO!!!!
