It’s hard to believe, but Gran Turismo 5 has been finally released. SONY’s greatest car simulator arrived to the stores in 3 different packages; along with the standard and collector’s edition a really expensive version is also available for the GT fanatics. It has 2 art books, Gran Turismo branded extras, a model car and an entry card, which entitles the owner to participate in an online competition for a real Mercedes SLS AMG.
The Signature Edition comes in a huge paper box, which holds the black metal case with unique GT5 contents. Inside you will find an orange 1:43 scale limited edition Mercedes SLS AMG. The model car is highly detailed and looks decent inside its own display case. The black leather wallet with a GT5 logo is a really nice piece of the SE; it holds an invitation card to join an online tournament with a chance to win a real SLS AMG car.
The standard edition game is also part of the package, but it has an alternate cover. There is an redeem code inside the game case to unlock 11 new cars and an XMB theme via PSN. The Apex book is located underneath the game, which is a 200-paged softcover book with tips and tricks, which can be really useful for wannabe race drivers. Under this book you will find the GT5 keychain and the branded USB key with Polyphony/Mercedes-Benz trailer. The hard cover art book featuring in-game cars like this 1966 Mustang GT convertible car and stunning locations.
The GT5 Signature Edition is a decent package with lots of extra content. The quality of every single piece is excellent, the only disadvantage is its really high price.
