$286 For GT5?

35 replies 26 views Edited Aug 4, 2010

So the Signature Edition of GT5 is going to be worth $286 (£180). Isn't that a little bit too much for:

  • Sculpted metal box, finished with SLS AMG Obsidian Black paint.
  • SLS AMG 1:43 model car.
  • Leather GT-branded wallet with competition entry card.
  • 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.

Thanks for posting this, Ima Buhnanah. Kudos. I hope that these exact cars in these colors are the ones I get with my Collectors Edition. That Red 300 SL Mercedes is wicked looking. The other 4 cars are nice as well.

Its too much, but all the Europeans and other folks outside North America can pay that.

 

 

Being those places are getting it. Its not for North America.

I want the Signature Edition, and I think I'll import it if I have to. Honestly, I'm a little disappointed in how these special editions have been handled.

I've contacted SCEA's customer service to file a complaint. I recommend anyone else who would want the Signature Edition do the same.

Game UK are selling the game for £149.99 which is very steep and to be fair they can list what they like it's only going to show if it's worth the price when it comes through the door and you can phyicaly see the qulity of what you've brought. There are 2 version listed in the diffrent UK stores the £150 and then theres one at £32 which is the standard game which comes with a code to unlock 1 or 2 cars

That SL looks whack with the stripes, not to hot on the M3 color either but I will run the hell out of them I'm sure.

I want that Mercedes, I hope I can change the car's color. Yet 180 euros is helluva too much, I dont see it coming to Chile

Basically, its Europe, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.  They are only about 1/4th of all sales for PS3, from some figures I saw from last year.  All the small countries get the good stuff, because, for some reason, Sony EU has become the most powerful...somehow, I think it started when the EU got PSN updates a day or two early from the US...well, that changed now.  I don't get it, American's can drive to, but I guess they think we have enough powerful cars that we can get everyday (not really, the most powerful everyday car I ever saw in the US is a new Hemi Challenger, and they are not all that powerful...for the weight)
