Gran Turismo 5 Collector’s Edition, Pre-Order Details

Via the PlayStation EU Blog:

The included diecast car is an exclusive 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho, who have been making some of the best collectible diecast cars for over 20 years. The 300+-page exclusive Collector’s Edition book from Polyphony Digital will be essential reading for GT fans, containing everything from the history of the automobile, to driving techniques, professional racing tips, car and engine basics and tuning know-how, and reference data about Gran Turismo 5. I want to warn you that the Collector’s Edition has a limited run, so pre-order it quickly if you want to guarantee your copy.

The exciting pre-order program for Gran Turismo 5 offers exclusive and beautiful in-game cars as bonuses, including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, McLaren F1, and more. Each car features an exclusive and stylish Gran Turismo-themed “stealth” livery custom-designed by Polyphony Digital, with select performance upgrades over the standard versions of the cars available in the game. Pre-orders offers will be coming soon at participating retailers for both the standard and Collector’s Edition versions.

Last but certainly not least, here is the brand new trailer for Gran Turismo 5 that debuted just a short while ago at Sony E3 press conference. Get a glimpse of some of the thrilling racing Gran Turismo 5 will offer, featuring World Rally Championship rally cars kicking up dust clouds at night, SuperGT cars racing through scenic Europe, NASCAR cars jockeying for position, the Stig on the Top Gear test track, and much more.

    I’m definitely getting this but i wish the American’s got an American die-cast car, like a Viper or Mustang or a corvette, you know? But still, very cool. Hey guys if you want to join my GT5 league message me on Playstation, I’m BubbleBelly542!

    I’ve heard of an ultimate edition being released. Some Gamestops in the US have mentioned it. Anyone have any info on what it is, or if it actually exists?

    I live in Australia, and my primary concern is if I pre-order from gamestop.com, will I still be able to use the DLC’s in the Australian PS Store?

    1. Alaa

      Yes but you have to use the codes in the same region they are from.
      So if you ordered from a US store you have to use the code in a US user account.
      I live in KSA and I use promotional codes all the time that are US only.

    @ DxalxD: 99 big ones. Definitely worth it imho. I had the regular edition pre-ordered @ gamestop and the employees said they would call as soon as the collectors edition was available to upgrade me. They didn’t, however I might be asking too much to be notified the same say its in their computer. Anyways I just went in and transferred my preorder to the collectors edition when I found out about it. You better believe I’ll be first in line on launch day.

    I seem to have a love/ hate relationship with GT5. I hate on it that its taking so damn long to get into my PS3, and thats its been delayed so long. But PD has been absolved of all of their “sins” in my eyes now they have a release date. The wait for this game seems to be worth it for sure.

    According to GT’s website, the 5 cars will be premium DLC models…this seems to confirm DLC for the game

    Game Stop started taking pre-orders today. The retail is $99.99 with a minimum $10 deposit. Finally, Polyphony has made a collector’s edition of Gran Turismo. Keep it coming Polyphony, I’ll buy the collector’s edition of all future Gran Turismo games.

  7. Watain

    just got mine from ebgames.com (the canadian version of gamestop i think, as its powered by gamestop)
    man i cannot wait!!!!!!

  8. Hacki_Roku

    ive pre order it twice, once at my local retailer, where im first on the pre-order list, and a second one from gamestop, where ive purchased/pre-ordered games before and have a great service. the second one i will receive will stay inbox for my private collection. Cant wait to put this on my PS3, and thanks anyway to all you guys who got us informed about gamestop pre order. :)

  9. LeStique

    I fear that this will not be on sale in Europe (even though that would mean that pd is not supplying their biggest market)…

    I WANT IT! DESPITE THE FACT THAT I’M FROM GERMANY! PLEASE PD!

  10. SMfan

    damn. i dunno whether it will b oficially pre-ordered in russia or i ll hav 2 find other ways 2 get it
    same old …. AGGGAIN!

  11. StillAwaitingGT

    Yes, I, too, want to know when and where to preorder this collectors edition of GT5! :)

    The GT-R model should be very nice.
    I collect diecast models and the Kyosho brand is well respected!

  12. Apophis_2029

    Now somebody have to find the US- or EU-Version and everybody here will be very lucky …! :-D

  13. Miura1

    Just noticed that renchi.com offers the limited edition (JP-version) for pre-order at USD 89,90 and a release date of December 2010.

  14. GMW

    Must find where to get this as this is the edition I want. All the bells and whistles. If there is one game I’ll spend a lot more on for a special edition, Gran Turismo is it!!!

  15. Sufferes

    I hope that the book and maybe even the car would be available for purchase outside the pre-order too

  16. DustDriver

    Gamemania in Belgium has allowed people to preorder a special edition from the beginning, and they’ve stopped registering preorders for it a long time ago.
    And I didn’t preorder it :(

  17. idlestation

    woah.. collectors edition sounds cool.. I already have the game preordered, but I guess I’ll have to throw more money at it now.

    I can’t wait to try out that McLaren F1!

  18. DaveTheStalker

    As soon as Gamestop gets thus sku I’m their system, I will be transferring my exixting preorder!

  19. Bernd

    Nice Price !!! That should be about 60-70 Euros. I expected the game alone to cost that much. Bring it on !

  20. FlareKR

    Awesome, I gotta pre-order this whenever GameStop is even able to take pre-orders. :D
    I see that this says EU blog. Does that means this pack will be available in the USA or no? And how much?

  21. Hernan

    Im getting it for the book mainly, i love big books, it reminds me the good age of the pc games with great manuals (like Xwing and Tie fighter).

  22. RPR101

    i pre-ordered the regular game today at my local gamestop. i asked about the collectors edition and the lady at the store told me that since it was just announced today they are not takin pre-orders yet. she said i could pre-order the regular game today and i will be notified when the collectors edition is available to pre-order so then i can just upgrade my regular pre-order to a collectors edition pre-order for probably 5 dollars more than my original pre- order which was just 5 dollars. =) i hope that makes sense to everyone and hopefully helps you out.

  23. DamageControl

    How many are there going to be? I want to know if I should order ASAP or if I can wait a while.

  24. psn id: Astro_BS-AS

    OMG….

    Here in Argentina is going to cost a thousand dollars… but I don´t care….

    Need-to-have-it-now

  25. worstdriver1393

    All that for 99 bucks ?? Hell yeah bring it on.

    I don’t know if it will be at my local wal mart LOL

  26. wsoul

    Just got off the phone with my local GameStop. They haven’t heard anything about it, but the guy I was talking to said if it was announced at E3 that it will be on the preorder list the very next day usually. Call your local game shops tomorrow.

  27. LeStique

    I don’t want this model. But the book and this “look, I am a gaming nerd”- keything… WANT IT WANT IT WANT IT

    I would pre-order it right now, but sadly I have not the faintest idea where…anyone?

  28. RE515TANT

    That 300+ page CE book is the selling point for me. The other things are nice, like the GT-R replica, but that book is full of awesome. Hope it won’t to all too expensive.

  29. Han_the_Dragon

    I’m hopping this is also available for EU and not just the US, since the pack looks really good.
    As for the bonus cars I will probably ignore them at the start like I did with the Veyron and SLR McLaren in the GT PSP.

  30. baubry

    Whoever manages to preorder it first needs to let us know where and how. I want the Collectors edition so badly.

  31. NBH

    Nice but I don’t really like the idea of getting better performing cars just for paying more money but I will check it out. I’m guessing this might be pricey with the included model. Roll on Nov 2nd!

    1. psn id: Astro_BS-AS

      In no place says anything like that.
      You are going to have the cars right from the start, and with special liveries.
      Nothing more than that.

      If you take into account that the McLaren F1 is going to cost “easily” 2.000.000 credits, is not bad at all to have it from the beginning, if you don´t have the time
      :)

    2. Sertsa

      I think NBH was talking about real money to buy this version of the game, not the in-game money.

      I’ve never considered buying a “collector’s edition” game before, but this one sounds good depending on version costs.
