Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Collector’s Edition pre-order sales rev up

Obviously, the sooner you pre order, the better chance you have of receiving the CE Version.  As they say, "first come, first serve".

Gamestop offers the CE Version and so does Amazon.....but Amazon is also offering a $5.00 rebate (or discount) on the game.

This problem is now being resolved.

 

When I spoke with SONY Canada, they were under the impression that Canadian SKUs were set up with the stores. It seems that this was not the case,so my inquiry got this rolling.

 

I am told that tomorrow, EB Games, for example, will have CE SKUs.

I have a question, how many of you are going to keep a copy of the Collector's Edition unopened on a shelf?

 

 

 

 

 

 

I couldn't do that, because to me thats spending $100 on something thats just going to collect dust and not get any use out of it. Chances are my copy of the CE will be opened in my car when I pick it up from the post office, lol.

CE wasnt for sale on amazon the week before. Then it went on sale, hence the 1400 percent increase. Makes me wonder how many are being made.

 

Also theres a GT5 CE thread here.


 

I preordered the GT5 CE through gamestop.

 

Yeah, it will be interesting to see how many copies will be cranked out.  I just took a look at the GT5 site and it says is 'quantities will be limited'.  This could be anywhere from 1,000 - 1,000,000+ copies!  I will look at the other thread in your link and see if anyone has a more exact number of GT5CE that are goign to be released.

 


Don't think it will be the high number, but like with all things PD/Sony we really just don't know.

Considering a numbered certificate of authenticity will be included with each GT5 CE set, I would think they would have to have some reasonable limit set.

I can confirm through my local EB Games store that this has not happened, too, and if it is not rectified by tomorrow, I will contact SONY again.
