At Sony's press conference, we finally got a release date for Gran Turismo 5: November 2, 2010, in North America and Latin America. Now we've got the announcement of a Collector's Edition for the game, and it's looking pretty sweet.
The whole package, which will retail for $99.99, includes the following:
A copy of Gran Turismo 5
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 exclusive high-end DLC cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades
Numbered certificate of authenticity
Custom collector’s packaging
Yep, they'll all include a numbered certificate, because quantities of this Collector's Edition will actually be limited. You'll be able to pre-order it soon at a variety of retailers; pre-ordering (the Collector's Edition or the game itself) will net you one of a number of exclusive in-game cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and McLaren F1.
