While Gran Turismo 6 is just about to appear over the horizon on a still-unknown platform, Sony appears committed to promoting Gran Turismo 5 on the PlayStation 3 in the immediate future.
According to a discovery by PS Lifestyle, GT5 XL Edition is about to be featured in a new PlayStation 3 “Legacy Bundle”. Product listings and box-art were briefly available on both NewEgg and Amazon (affiliate links) before being removed or set to “discontinued” (the same fate suffered by NewEgg’s GT6 product listing).
The Legacy Bundle will include a 500GB PS3 console, GT5 XL, Infamous 2, and a 30-day subscription to PlayStation plus for $299.00, with a reported release date of May 6th.
Although an SCEE executive is already on the record for stating that Gran Turismo 6 is coming to the PlayStation 3, it continues to be a hot topic of debate in our forums, and this news will likely only further drive speculation and doubts over the accuracy of the executive’s comments.
