GameStop’s Summer PS3 Bundle Includes Gran Turismo 5 XL

July 11th, 2012 by Jordan

If you’re looking to pick up a new PlayStation 3 in the United States, take a look at GameStop’s latest bundle, which includes a 160GB PS3 Slim, a copy of Gran Turimo 5 XL Edition, The Sly Collection, and a 30 day free trial of PlayStation Plus.

Priced at $249.99 – the same as a single 160GB PlayStation 3 at Amazon – this bundle essentially offers the games for free. In addition, keep in mind that GT5 XL includes all of the game updates through Spec 2.0 along with a $20 DLC voucher, which makes this bundle an even better value.

You can order the bundle online, or pick it up at your local GameStop store.

    replace the 3 with a 4, and the 5 with a 6, and you have yourself an extremely happy customer.

      Seriously? You’ve bought another console for more trades? I’m sure some people think this a pokemon game rather than a driving game.

      Haha. Not just for trades but that’s a bonus. I really want to do the triple monitor setup some day but getting a backup for original fatty is the main reason.

    You shouldn’t use Wikipedia to prove your point. It’s user edited, so ANYONE could have written the part you are referring to. Simply put, Wikipedia is NOT proof.
    Sorry :-\ but it’s true.

    Great, GT5XL is now available special for new players. So when do us loyal players who bought it when it came out get access to the goodies? I just want 1 stealth car, thats all. A SLS or a McLaren F1 or R10 would be cloud 9, then 787b. I missed my chance at the NSX and the GT-R because my ps3 Internet wasn’t working and I tried it when it was but it was to late :( If anybody has a card for one I will trade you ANYTHING for it, just name it I’ll find it and trade it.

    Why settle for 160 GB PS3 when you can get 320 GB PS3 at alsmost the same price, or better?

    Besides; how soon before the PS4?

    I’ll make my 80GB last until then eh!

    • Jul. 11, 6:47pm
      e30 freek

      Is the 80GB backwards compatible?

    • Jul. 11, 6:51pm
      teppischfresser

      You don’t use the hard drive. But a 500 GB for about 100$. Tnever buy the more expensive PS3 just because of the HDD. And no, the 80 is NOT backwards compatible. The 60 was.

    • Jul. 11, 6:54pm

      Ohh thanks

      80 gb ps3 could play ps2 game too

    • Jul. 12, 12:30am

      There was a backwards compatible 20, 60, 80, and 160 GB model. I own the 80, and saw quite a few 160’s while looking for one. You just need to find the right model type. But it is better to buy a smaller-drive system and then just purchase a much larger hard drive.

      Sony said ps3 would be a “10year” system. I’m gonna hold them to that and go ahead and trade in my Vita and games and pick up PS3 number 2!

    I got a 320gb PS3 with modern warfare 3 for $189 last month from Best Buy. I would give this one a miss. There’s bound to be a better deal around if you look.

    Nobody noticed they wrote ‘Grand’, not ‘Gran’. I don’t know why so many people get that wrong. ‘Tourismo’ is also common.

      On the ad above, under the word bundle.

      Yeah lol. They had it wrong too when the 80GB came out, they said it was backwards compatible, but it’s not.

      Well it is GameStop after all.

      They get it wrong because they’re stupid.

    this offer seems good but if you consider:

    – 7 milions people already purchased Gt5
    – there are many people in the world not interested in gaming
    – no more pre release Gt5 hype (we all was expecting the best game of all times)
    – FM4 carlist and customisation

    this bundle is quite a fail.

    • Jul. 11, 4:12pm
      TeamCZRRacing

      Think about this: Would you rather have just a PS3 Slim 160 for $250, or would you rather have the Slim 160 and two games for the same price? I’ll take the latter, thanks.

    • Jul. 11, 4:56pm

      I know someone who just picked this up. He’s a former short track racer and used to play GT on PS2. He saw my rig and started to become interested but was afraid of the initial investment. Once he saw this price and my offer to let him borrow my G27 he jumped on it. Not so fail huh?

    • Jul. 11, 6:08pm
      RACECAR

      And you make this hilarious claim without noticing the other PS3 title included or the hard to miss 160GB PS3? Your comment is a fail.

    GT5XL came out like a month after I bought my copy…now this…

    Great value for people wanting to buy a new PS3 console. I’ve never played the Sly collection. What is it like? How many games are included in the sly collection?

    • Jul. 11, 3:41pm
      gamerdog6482

      Three.

    • Jul. 11, 3:42pm
      gamerdog6482

      The games were very good, made by the people who made inFAMOUS. Nothing lie it though. It’s a stealth game.

    • Jul. 11, 4:41pm

      Sly Cooper is a great franchise. I have the original trilogy for PS2 and those games are a lot of fun for true classic gamers, but not for those people who think gaming means shooting strangers in a crappy and completely unoriginal shooter.

      I don’t know how good they look for PS3 now that they’ve been upscaled to HD, but if the older versions were one of the best looking games for the PS2 then expect some eye candy. Not that graphics matter though.

      I would definitely buy it.

    • Jul. 11, 7:35pm
      CaptainHarlock

      The Sly series is absolutely terrific. Great, colorful characters, compelling gameplay, fantastic atmosphere. Try to imagine what it would be like playing through a Warner Bros. cartoon. I have the Sly Collection and it’s a great pick up.

    The GT5 copy included will do nothing but to hurt GameStop’s sales

    • Jul. 11, 3:59pm

      Then everybody should buy it. I hate GameStop.

    • Jul. 11, 4:15pm
      TeamCZRRacing

      It will help GameStop’s sales. GT5 actually has a good reputation outside of these forums. In fact, GT5 is the bestselling PS3 game of all time.

    • Jul. 11, 4:58pm
      mcfizzle

      Not quite true CZR. GT5 is the top selling exclusive. I’m pretty sure the last 3 COD’s have sold better.

    • Jul. 11, 5:38pm
      Tintorera

      McFizzle, according to wikipedia(!) GT5 is the best selling PS3 game to date.

      And to be far nobody on this forum hate the game, we are just too into the game and get pisses of by the Nissans they always add because we all want our favorite cars and track, lol. Game quality GT5 stills wipes the floor!

    • Jul. 12, 12:35am

      @Tintorera:

      He stated that GT is the best selling EXCLUSIVE, not just general PS3 game. CoD is cross-platform and I believe it had more sales…

    I got a 320gb with the move thing ( never use ) a game and a blue ray disc for £210

      This is dollars, not pounds. The pound has a little more value than the US Dollar. :)

    Oh, and I envy you guys in the US. The 160gb Slim I bought last year after my fatty died cost me $500 (US Dollars) and it had nothing but a DS3 included.
