LOS ANGELES--At Sony's press briefing, the company dated Killzone 3, PlayStation Move, and a PlayStation Plus premium subscription service, but the revelations didn't end there. Sony also revealed a release date for Polyphony Digital's racing sim Gran Turismo 5, which it first teased at E3 2005.
When GT5 arrives November 2 exclusively on the PlayStation 3, a $100 Collector's Edition will be available alongside the standard ware. In addition to the title, packed inside "premium packaging," the limited bundle will include a 1:43 scale diecast 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V designed by Polyphony and produced by collectible car-maker Kyosho.
Additionally, racing fans who pick up the premium pack will receive a 300-page "car lover's guide," penned by the developer. The contents of the book include bits of automobile history, including the history of the present day automobile, as well as relevant Gran Turismo 5 reference materials.
The pack will also include a redemption key for five in-game vehicles with "performance upgrades." It was not announced which five vehicle models will be included or what the upgrades will be.
Following the car theme, the Gran Turismo 5 Collector's Edition will come with a GT5-branded key chain, as well as a numbered authenticity certificate.
