INVEST INTO THE COLLECTORS EDITION, SELL THE WALLET ON EBAY FOR LIKE 60, THE CAR MODEL FOR 30, THE BOOKS FOR LIKE 20, and not only do you get your money back, but now your enrolled into the competition for free

do you now understand why people who mention Forza in the same sentence as Gran Turismo are routinely laughed at w/ their show of blatant misguided sheep mind.

All Turn10 ever wanted to do is ride the back of GT's name and make their name stick onto GTs in an effort to make gamers who no little to nothing about cars or racing sims think they are somehow the same thing with some idiots going as far as believing Forza in some insane alternate universe is somehow even better than GT.

If after GT5 launches and you say you'd rather give your money to turn10 than PPD then there is no other way to put it - you are a damned sheep of a fool

Everyone that bought forza thinking they were getting a racing sim yor racing culture experience and don't go out and buy GT, a real automotive culture racer, is simply a fool

Are you serious? Like, delusional or something? I don't even know where to start, maybe you should just go outside or something.

I want the signature edition so bad!

UltimateIdiot9115069d ago

Probably not since GT isn't as big in NA as Europe. It would be really nice if it comes over but I don't think I can afford it. The CE edition is pretty good already.

fedex6825069d ago

Thanks for the reply.

I have the CE pre-ordered but the Signature edition looks sweet!

nycredude5069d ago

I also have the CE preodered from Gamestop but damn that Special edition is badass!

In the US the CE includes a keychain and the GTR model so I'm good. That wallet is tempting though.

FFXI1015069d ago

Totally agree with you, I know is a lot money but to me it is worth every penny.

Takoulya5069d ago

If I ever get the Signature Edition, I will jizz in my pants and burst into tears shortly after. It's just so beautiful. *Sheds Tears*

Hahaha I said when I saw it I wanted it for the wallet then saw the price €179.99. That's a LOT of cash for a game.

cobraagent5069d ago (Edited 5069d ago )

True but there is a competition to win a 140000 euros car So if you are lucky to get the signature copy, have a driving lisence and driving skills you can get 139800 euros. But where I live this car will get stolen in 10 minutes

FishCake9T45069d ago

karl5069d ago

"This is in addition to five ‘ChromeLine’ Collector’s Edition cars plus six ‘Stealth’ vehicles, both featuring enhanced performance and liveries and an exclusive dynamic theme"

And

"Those lucky enough to get their hands on the Signature Edition (quantities are going to be strictly limited) will be able to enter an extraordinary competition that will combine in-game and real world driving challenges – the prize at the end of these two stages? A real Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar."

And if you don't have the €uros

"Next up for something slightly less exotic but certainly no less exciting, alongside the Signature Edition at launch we will be offering the Gran Turismo 5 Collector’s Edition. This version of the game will have a recommended retail price of €79.99."

With

"The Collector’s Edition features an exclusive commemorative #5 slip case. It also shares special edition inlay art with the Signature Edition.

And

What’s more, not only do you also get the same dynamic theme as in the Signature Edition, the same set of five ChromeLine vehicles, and also the Apex driver’s magazine, you also get five collectible artcards featuring beautifully rendered images carefully chosen by the team at Polyphony."

And

"Alongside the special editions of the game, I can now unveil the 6 highly covetable pre-order cars that will be available in those countries with PlayStation Store

All of the 6 pre-order vehicles in what Polyphony has titled the ‘Stealth’ range feature both performance and livery enhancements to give you that little extra edge in-game."
