Gran Turismo 5 Dominates UK Competition

PlayStation LifeStyle: "Coming off the accidental misprint of £17, Gran Turismo 5 has surged to number one on the Amazon UK Videogame Charts. Yes, Sony's racing behemoth managed to trump long-standing champions, the Wii and Wii Fit; both of which have spent 3 years and 1 year in the top 100, respectively."

Pre-Ordered it. So many pre-orders i think it will be hard for Amazon not to honour this mistake and give it to us all for a lovely £17 (:

ps3gamerkyle3394d ago

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. They made a LOT of sales before someone caught on and changed the price.

But of course it does.

...nothing else comes remotely close.

It's funny because it looks like I may in fact buy GT5 for a cheaper price than the demo-ish Prologue.

Trollimite3394d ago (Edited 3394d ago )

that this is going to be the biggest cluster fuxk ever!!! i dont think amazon is gonna honor their price! gamers everywhere (including me)are gonna rage!!!! this could infact be the end of the world!

This is a piece in the puzzle towards 2012 - Armageddon!


BlackCoffee3394d ago

How can a game that isn't out or even have a release date be dominating anything at all?

I am sure that when Gran Tourismo 5 is released it will go to the top of sales charts.

Until then lets just keep on smiling!

Talk about struggling for things to write about for hits on your website. Journalism eh?

Hm, when this happened with Lair they didn't honour it. But i would have thought they would have cancelled the orders by now.

Still, kinda obvious that it will be top of the charts hen it was less than £18

and soon I will be preordering this!

I was about to pre-order this last night but then thought better wait and see if whether it was a misprint or not. Still i think amazon will sell it for a lower price but not that low. Maybe £30 to compete with shopto.

Not the biggest racing fan, but i will def be picking this up day 1 regardless :))

somekindofmike3394d ago

@ only on playstaychun

why didn't you preorder it at the £17 anyway? if it's a mistake on amazons behalf they would either honour the price and you win :D or they cancel the order and you are no worse off. You can't really loose.

You got to be in it with a chance to win :D

whoelse3394d ago

Yes and of course Amazon don't charge you till the item dispatches.


sadly I missed out on the £17 misprint but I'm waiting for an official release announcent and possible special editons, i'd easily drop over £100 for a special edition of this. I'm also holding back on preordering MW2 to see if a beta becomes available with a preorder, does anyone know if there will be one?

ps3gamerkyle3394d ago

Oh, for sure. I'm sure there'll be some kind of multiplayer beta for MW2. There was one for Call of Duty 4.

and it's not on flopza 3.. LOL..
