Major online retailers (and even Sony themselves) confirm a new special-edition of GT5.
This is cool for people that haven't bought the game yet, but will. Just like me :D
Sony keeps raking in those GT5 sales, the XL Edition is sure to make the sales of the game climb even faster
i had gt3 and gt4, never really picked this up just cause there were so many other games i rather play but it was still on my list of games to get. i'll definitely pick this up now
... that game seems like great fun, but because of SOOOOOOOOOOO much DLC, I never picked it up. Anyway, will probably get this XL edition of GT5. Game seems pretty good, and if it has all the DLC included, it's worth the money.
Yi-Long Told you this when ModNation had been out for a month. You should NOT of skipped it because of the 1-3% of paid dlc. I respect and usually agree with your anti scam stance but in regards to MNR you went tooooo far and i have to say got it wrong. You cant have everything and you dropped support for a community pushed game because of that stance. There is just too much content for free to be paying mind to the tiny bit of milking IF you can even call it that...I feel like fedexing my copy to you for free....Its xmas after all GT5 was worth the money at launch imo. What other driving sim/game is as feature packed prior to all the free dlc it got
... I explained the reason why I would like to buy the game is the modding/creating itself, and those DLC packs are 10 bucks EACH, so that's just wayyy to expensive for me. I would have expected a GOTY edition out by now, but sadly, it isn't happening.
I really thought Forza 4 was a great game until I saw the Núrburgring track on YouTube. It was really wide n smooth as silk. I only like driving at Nùrburgring in GT5 probably that's why I noticed the difference. Anyway this is great news for people who haven't picked it up yet.
Indeed its a good idea and will probably be cheaper than all the DLC combined anyway.
GT series on ps3 has been getting good sales. 1st....gt5:p a so called demo so around 5 million gt5.is close to 8 million now this will add another 2-3 million so 15million life time sale for one game is pretty good i guess. I also believe we will see a new GT game in mid to late 2013 and an announcement at E3 2012. Its already in development and since the engine is there, it should not take more than 2-3 years from release of GT5 its a great racing game and with all these updates and DLC its has gotten better so must buy for a racing fan if you are a racing fan get both GT5 XL edition and forza 4 for ultimate fun. or get gt5xl when launches and wait for forza goty edition for later in 2012
I really want this version of the game since I never got into Gt Series
I wanted to buy GT5 for $20 on Boxing Day but now I find out about this. It says that it is the same as the regular GT5 but includes a Spec 2 update. Is this update free on PSN?
2.0 update is free but the disc includes the DLC for free which you would pay separately.
So there is other DLC (other than Spec 2) that costs money but is included for free?
yeah, otherwise it would be daylight robbery
It is, yeah.
i purchased gt5 on launch day, and upto today with all the updates and downloads i have a total of 10GB of GT5 DATA stored on my hard drive. so i will be selling my copy on ebay, deleting the data and on a later date purchase the XL version
Saved a few dollars by buying it for $20 at Walmart. I think with all the DLC it will cost me $36-$38. Not bad considering that I've hyped myself up to max for it and need to play now. :)
Have they fixed the terrible interface? I just cant play it as it is. Did they focus test at all?
Jealously much? Seriously troll. You joined 2 hours ago and have trolled with every post, almost all of them against the PS3. Not sure (yet) which dupe account this is and it doesn't matter.
Really? I think the GT5 interface is one of the best parts of the game.
Why fix something that isn't broken?
You sure you actually is eligible to play GT5? If you don't like the interface, bad for you, but all other people like it. Seems you want to fix something only a troll like you don't like.
GT5 interface, the only problem I have is its quite slow to load
Definitely cant wait to see more and was quite surprised to see my post mentioned o.x;;
Great, I have been meaning to get this game for a while and I think this will seal the deal. I was hoping they would do this with other games too that they didn't really market correctly upon their first releases.
GT5 will be at 10 million like the other ones in no time. 1 year = 7.3 million. Not too shabby.
Actually they sold 7.3 million in just 10 months because those numbers are of September =D
Ah, very true. Forgot about that.
Sweet I'm getting this for free in a few weeks. Might sell it though because I'm not too into GT.
I could of sworn that pick was of a rainbow colored dragon
Could've*. Stay in school.
your disagrees say otherwise
It's better than that. It's a rainbow coloured Citroen. :S
He's right but grammar nazis who nitpick in rude ways are annoying. Also, he was off topic. I wonder if he would talk trash like that to strangers on the street. I was just thinking about picking up GT to test out this wheel that I have. I guess now I might as well wait for this new addition. I would love to see Sony release new versions of games like Resistance 3, that IMO, deserve more sales.
No I just was just proving a point that he was being a jackass because it doesnt really matter how you type stuff on the internet as long as you get your point across.
That's not how it works. I have disagrees because people are as naive as you. Disagree if you agree with me.
first!!! oh wait...
I need a high res version of that pic. Sources anyone? XL is probably spec 2 plus current and some extra dlc.
This is as good as it gets: http://www.gtpla.net/wp-con...
Nope. Pic by jBhIpS on GTPlanet. Quick search on the forums and a few page clicks resulted in this ~ 1920x1080 http://fc01.deviantart.net/... 2560x1440 http://fc01.deviantart.net/...
You are a saviour! Bubbs for that, Thanks
ty. Great wallpaper
Are the DLC / update already in the disk, or sony give some voucher so we can download it from PSN? I may pick this up for my bro. He loves GT, but with his work right now he don't have time to pick GT 5.
Everything will be in the disk.
Ok, thx for the info mate. Bubbles + for you ;)
this is just the same as the fiasco that was Forza 3 ultimate edition. So I spend 40 pounds on the game, 15 pounds on DLC and then they bring out a 30 pound game with everything included :O
EH? Companies have been doing it for a while. Most notable being Borderlands/Fallout. In the end it makes sense though... Everything loses value over time so its early or later for less. This ultimately kills some people since the online maybe dead/trophies impossible.
Not really, the Forza 3 Ultimate Edition had cars that weren't available at all to standard edition owners. This is just combining everything into a "game of the year" edition style format. I bought the signature edition and bought the DLC, I don't feel hard done by... in fact, I'm happy if it brings more people in.
It's not milking when Sony does it :p
is that going to be the box art?
this look sweet IM SOLD!
Maybe the extra content will be optionally distributed digitally on the playstation store for a small fee for those who already bought GT5. Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
It was leaked about a month ago....lol There were several articles about it when they listed it on houseparty.
