Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition, Collector’s Edition Announced for International Release

August 4th, 2010 by Jordan

Remember when we first got the hint that there would be “two collector’s editions” of Gran Turismo 5? It turns out that was correct, as the Signature Edition was just announced today for everyone except residents of the United States. Here’s what you get for €179.99 (pre-order here at Amazon.fr):

  • Sculpted metal box, finished with SLS AMG Obsidian Black paint.
  • SLS AMG 1:43 model car
  • Leather GT-branded wallet with competition entry card (see below)
  • GT-branded USB key with a special GT5 trailer
  • GT-branded key fob
  • Coffee table book featuring the cars and locations of GT5
  • 200-page Apex book with driving and tuning tips, discussion of future technologies, and more.
  • Five unique “Chrome Line” edition cars (see below).
  • The “competition entry card” provided with the wallet grants you access to a special competition – one that combines in-game and real-world challenges, much like the GT Academy. The prize, though, is extraordinary: a real Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG super car of your very own. (More details on this competition will be announced later.)
  • Also like the GT Academy, United States, Canadian, and even Japanese fans are out of luck, as the Signature Edition (and the competition) will only be available to residents of the following countries: UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Greece, Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Europe also has their own Collector’s Edition coming, which differs slightly from the US version. Here’s what it includes for €79.99:

  • A commemorative “slip case” featuring the artwork that was originally spotted in this video.
  • The five unique Chrome Line cars (see below).
  • Five collectable “art cards”.

These five “Chrome Line” cars will be available as DLC in all special editions of Gran Turismo 5, including the United States:

  • Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro Chrome Line Edition
  • BMW M3 Coupe Chrome Line Edition
  • Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 Chrome Line Edition
  • Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupe Chrome Line Edition
  • Shelby Cobra 427 Chrome Line Edition

Six more special cars will also be used as pre-order incentives by different retailers around the world:

    Not getting the SE myself, just pre-ordered the CE which is plenty enough for me, Cost $149 here in New Zealand, with the SE costing $349. Anybody from NZ wondering where you can get these, try mightyape.co.nz thats where i ordered mine from and they have the standard game, CE, and SE. They also ship worldwide for anybody who wants to ship this in. Cheers

      Also in NZ and just did the same – ordered the CE from Mighty Ape. Had tried EB Games but they didn’t even have the CE version available let alone the SE version. At $349 NZD unless you know you’re a serious contender in the comp the SE is just too expensive imo. I’ld rather put the extra $200 towards a G27 wheel instead.

    • Aug. 4, 10:39pm
      my_r32

      In NZ too. I already had the normal version pre-ordered for my boyfriend. But saw this and am now changing it to the SE version from Mighty ape. He loves this series (SkylineObsession) and loves special editions lol. Eb have the CE and SE versions up now, $139 for CE and TBC for the SE.

    • Aug. 4, 10:46pm
      Mickstanz

      Yeah EB has the SE without a price and the CE at $139 at the moment, but know mighty apes service is good so i’m sticking with them.

      Definitely worth the extra like $30 to get the CE, like the book for one i’m actually pretty keen to give a read. Unfortunately i’m getting it sent to a mates place for safe keeping as i’m gonna be overseas for a year or so!

      Would definitely recommend the G27 wheel by the way, thats what iv got and its great, and will be great when i get to let it loose on GT5 :) Just made myself a homemade cock-pit and works a treat! Pictures are on my GTP profile if ya wanna have a look.

      UK economy is far worse off! Also going by the graphs and data on PD’s website the UK (and then EU based on continental region) is the highest consumer of Gran Turismo series so maybe they are rewarding them?

    Just seen the Game price it’s a little ouchie. but weridly everyone is now second of december not just amazon , so i am starting to think that at gamescon Sony could say it will release on the 2nd of november. what makes me think this is I have bought tons of stuff from game in the past and have seen the preorder book before and they dont just go dropping dates in there unless they are pretty solid same with gamestation, I think it is likely to be released in Japan and EU on the same date.

    • Aug. 4, 6:01pm
      cheesewheel

      was just talking about this to some friends: game – 2/11, gameplay – 2/11, amazon – 2/11, shopto – 5/11, argos – 5/11, asda – 5/11, tesco – 5/11, thehut – 5/11, zavii – 5/11, play – 26/11, hmv – 10/12

    • Aug. 5, 9:10am
      TokyoDrift

      The point of listing all of those dates being…?

      With the odd exception, games release on a Friday in Europe, so if anything, it will be an explosive 5th November if it is going to launch that week.

    It seems to be the group that own “Game & Gamestation” have it.

    So if its an exlcusive to a group then maybe this aint going to any reductions in price to maybe after launch that if it doesent sell.

      Like Europe and a release date? It’s all swings and rondabouts with the information releases it seems.

    • Aug. 4, 6:05pm

      Maybe because GT series sells better in EU? GT5P – nearly triple the sales in EU vs NA is one example.

    • Aug. 4, 6:32pm

      It has nothing to do with sales volume. Blame U.S. lawyers and everyone that wants to sue their way to riches. You know that if there was an actual competition here someone would stub their toe and sue Sony, Nissan, the track owner, and that rich guy over there for millions.

    I have recieved a mail from ShopTo who told me that the signature edition is exclusive to another retailer in the uk. This indicates to me that Game are going to be the sole supplier of the SE in the uk. Anyone spotted anywhere else you can preorder it for the uk?

    llllllllllllll

    i don’t know what to do >.< …

  23. Aug. 4, 4:29pm
    Mr Latte

    Has to be one of the biggest collectors sets ever.
    Im trying to put an idea on the prices I think are reasonable for the items included.

    Although take these values at retail…

    Lets see:
    # Sculpted metal box, including game £60
    # SLS AMG 1:43 model car = £30
    # Leather GT-branded wallet = £15
    # GT-branded USB key with a special GT5 trailer = £15
    # GT-branded key fob = £5
    # Coffee table book = £10
    # 200-page Apex book = £10
    # Five unique “Chrome Line” edition cars £10

    That comes to £155
    Euro value approx 84 – 90 pence = £150 – £160
    So all in I dont see a problem with the price being asked. Also isnt it likely this will get discounted and places will have it cheaper. So could be a good value purchase for the more serious GT collector.

    As an example I remember paying £80 for a Starwars VHS Tin Boxset and £90 for Terminator 2 Leather Deluxe Boxset Laserdisc 12 or more years ago.

      You realise you can collect things without them having to appreciate in value right? Some people actually enjoy just having a collection without worrying about how much it is or isn’t worth at any given time.

      Jordan

      Tim, we’ve been left out of GT Academy twice, and now we don’t get to compete for an SLS AMG. For those who take these competitions seriously like myself, it’s a tough pill to keep swallowing over and over again.

    • Aug. 4, 7:59pm
      ItsHim

      Jordan, while I can understand that being excluded from such competitions must be a dire experience for a competitive person and GT fanatic, putting up a real SLS as a price for a competition held for promoting a video game is the most hideous idea I can think of.

      Most potential winners couldn’t afford the upkeep of such a car in the first place, and those who can probably already own one.

      So the winner most likely will sell the car after a few quick spins and is stuck with the money and the knowledge, that he had the once in a lifetime opportunity of owning a supercar. But had to sell it because he spent too much time playing video games and not working an his career.

      There are no winners in this competition from my point of view.

    • Aug. 5, 12:38am
      Jordan

      Um…that’s a bit pessimistic, don’t you think?

      hey Jordan i thoought you where from Jordan :O

    • Aug. 5, 9:28am
      TokyoDrift

      @ItsHim, so let me get this right…

      The winner gets to own and drive a Mercedes SLS AMG, even if it’s only for a short period. They can either keep the car if they can afford to run it, or they can sell a car that has a list price of over £150,000 – a life changing sum of money.

      So, you think that person would not be winner? Are you daft or what? Sounds to me like you are only jealous because you know you stand zero chance of winning. Not surprising with an attitude like that.

    @Jeffree if you “truly” loyal to Gran Turismo you would not have/ will not buy an xBox and play that POS game they claim is better than GT. Why? Because they are the direct competition for our beloved game.

    I had to make a choice in 2006; Overpriced PS3 or 360. Well, kinda simple really, Gran Turismo is a PlayStation game!

    Unless you have 3-4 PS3’s or money is not an issue or you intend to betray GT by selling them on eBay, you’re not really more loyal than any of us.

      Yah, well, they shouldn’t have messed arround for more than half a decade putting in 3d and leaving 800 cars unfinnished. So while your busy being loyal, I’m having fun with the competition. Not my fault PD can’t seem to get to market. PD’s loss….

    Not to worry, all of these exclusive cars are going to come out as DLC for U.S. and Canadian residents later on.

    It makes perfect sense. Polyphony and Sony know people will pay for them and they absolutely will not pass up a chance to make more money.

    Thats why the craze over pre-ordering never gets to me. They throw around phrases like “cant it get it anywhere else” just to boost launch day sales. Give it a month or two after launch and we’ll see those cars in a DLC bundle.

    £150 should have had the wheel in the box. Ah well. I’ll buy the basic version and the wheel seperately.

    • Aug. 5, 12:26am
      JimInPT

      I think anybody deeply enough into GT to buy the enhanced editions have long since purchased a wheel – so adding one would be a pointless price-increaser, especially for anybody with a G25 or G27, thus costing sales to these people.

      Plus, they’ll make a much higher profit on the low-cost stuff they’re adding; putting a wheel in the box would cost PD quite a bit.

    The biggest reason for me to get the CE were the “stealth” cars, more specifically the McLaren. Now that I can only get it from Gamestop (which I can’t buy from where I live), I’m sticking with the regular edition.
    40 bucks more for five “chrome” cars I don’t like. Thank God I didn’t pre-order yesterday like I planned.

      you get more than just the extra DLC cars. You get the diecast Kyosho, the book, the keychain, etc…

      That diecast might go up in value someday. The guy at my local gamestop said that these special edition GT5 packages were truly a limited addition, meaning not so many being made… and he told me that after I already purchased it, hence no reason to lie. He’s probably right. The less made, the more collectible they will be in the future.

    WHAT!! The US INVENTED RACING!!! How dare they exclude us! Is this Kaz’s way of trying to get payback for the US fans forcing him to put damage in, and apparently delaying the game so long. He said as much, and I took that as a coded slam against us. Having said that, I could care less for that extra crap, lol. But the REAL Benz as a prize!

    # The “competition entry card” provided with the wallet grants you access to a special competition – one that combines in-game and real-world challenges, much like the GT Academy. The prize, though, is extraordinary: a real Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG super car of your very own. (More details on this competition will be announced later.)
    # Also like the GT Academy, United States, Canadian, and even Japanese fans are out of luck, as the Signature Edition (and the competition) will only be available to residents of the following countries: UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Greece, Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE and Saudi Arabia.

      So basically instead of £150 you pay £112.50…for a game? Ridiculous, and no, the extras are not worth that much money. My copy will cost £37 or so, still too much for a game with ‘tard cars and half-baked damage.

      I don’t see any reason why they couldn’t ship it to you. It would be region free, so no problems playing it. I’m just guessing though. :)

    • Aug. 4, 11:53pm
      whatis

      One thing I would point out though is if you buy a NTSC version of a game and there is DLC released for it down the line, then you can only buy and use that DLC from the US PSN store.

      The opposite of this is also true with PAL versions of PS3 games. If you buy a PAL version of GT5 and you want to buy any DLC, then you will need a European/Aus/NZ PSN account and credit card etc.

      While this is possible to do, it can sometimes be annoying to be continually signing in and out of different accounts and keeping track of what you purchased from where.

    • Aug. 5, 6:53am
      GTracerRens

      I think the special edition is international. Holland isn’t on the list either, but that means I cannot participate in that contest of the SLS mercedes. But i think the signature edition is worldwide released.

    • Aug. 6, 3:59pm
      Vulcao

      I agree with whatis.

      I bought a game from Japan, but I don’t live there. My credit card isn’t international, so it doesn’t work in the Japanese PS Store. Everytime I want to buy DLC for that game, I need to ask my relatives who live in Japan to buy one of those Playstation Network Cards for me. It’s a pain!

      DLC from other PS Store than your game’s won’t work (it doesn’t work in LittleBigPlanet at least).

    The DLC cars mean nothing to me. If it was a “molded car” that wasn’t in the game then I’d feel differently (example…if one of the cars was an FXX with special decals, but the actual FXX wasn’t in the game).

    All the cars that have been shown as DLC is in the game and I believe you will be able to recreate them if you choose. Getting them as DLC just means you don’t have to earn them.

    Kyosho model cars are very desirable and expensive, it may even justify the cost as you could probably sell it seperately for a few bob, but then again the normal CE comes with a kyosho car doesnt it?

    I certainy wont be paying £170 for this edition, i’d want just the game and a wheel for that (and the extra cars)

    over 130 euros extra for things that make no change to the gaming experience is a rip off

      That would be because the origin of the word tyre has nothing to do with the words retire or attire! Just because you can’t cope with words sounding similar but being spelt differently doesn’t make it “special”.

      Actually, JoeJ, those of us who understand and respect the significance of July 4th call it Independence Day. Another Independence Day (ID2, maybe?) might be added to USA calendars on the day Obama is finally powerless.

      In fact, that day might be November 2nd of this year, which combined with GT5 will make it a fine and memorable day indeed!

      Rocker

      JimInPT, stig, jacoja06, etc., -ALL- of you guys…

      there IS an actual standard, and an actual logic for it. The standard is created by the ambiguously named “International Standards Organization”, perhaps you have heard of it? ISO-9000 for example?

      The ISO 8601 format is composed as: YYYY MM DD. So everyone is wrong.

      The ISO 8601 format allows one to sort dates chronologically. I don’t if anyone else sees the logic of time being recorded or searched in a chronological format, but …. whatever.

      So, both US and EU systems are backwards:

      Dates written as DD/MM/YYYY cannot be sorted because 02/11/2010 will be -before- 04/07/2010, and 31/01/2010 will be -after- both of those.

      Dates written as MM/DD/YYYY cannot be sorted (in the PC world) because the order will be 01, 11, 12, 02, 03 etc., although we -might- be able to blame that on on Bill Gates. IDK if Mac or Linux automatically compensates for significant figures if it is a date. Then again, depending on your application, a date might not even be recognized as a date. e.g., I use a space delimiter to keep the application from FUBAR’ing my spreadsheet, among other things.

      So… There you go.

      Same here. The two special editions are very nice, but I don’t feel that the price tag is justifiable, just my own personal thoughts. The standard version will do me just fine, and like you say a livery editor (If there is one) should be able to recreate those cars quite easily as there’s no real complex designs to reproduce.

      @ Jordan, Having said that I wouldnt be suprised around 6 months down the line that all of the “special DL Cars” will be available on the PSN store for a small price. Like the PSP versions were made available.
      I cant afford the 179.99 euros so it looks as though it will be the 79.99 euro jobbie for me which is about £66.00 but will be rounded up to either 69.99 or £79.99. Guess we will have to see.

      Both editions look so great, that I’m seriously tempted to get both of them! Thank god we’ll have them all officially in Russia. But then new question arises – which should be opened and which kept sealed and stored like true collectable item?))

      Wow. Let’s just forget about the 300 million plus people in the US and Canada.

      There’s some sharp marketing sense, for SURE.

      @smthrlr, the US have had their “CE” version announced for weeks now, so what’s the problem?

      Fool me once, shame on you PD (Europe getting GT5 access).
      Fool me twice both you and Europe get the “finger”.

      PD: “Collector’s edition only for US!”
      USA: “Woohoo!”
      A few months later
      PD: ” Europe get better collector edition, and entry to win a free $500,000 car”
      USA: “YOU B*#$%! I Just pre-ordered my super awesome edition”

      At least we get a book and keychain, and a die cast GT-R (doesn’t really compare to the SLS but thanks anyway).

      I hope your being sarcastic about the SLS being $500k because it’s not even half that.

    Good for you. Now you’ve royally screwed up the page width by placing that stupid number of exclamation marks in your comment. Well done for being 300th – is that the same position you’d come in a school class of 299?
