Gran Turismo 5 zipped to retail in November 2010, but Sony and developer Polyphony Digital aren't finished with the game just yet. In two weeks, a new budget-priced and updated iteration of the well-received racing game will land on store shelves.
Announced today on the PlayStation Blog, the $40 Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition is due out on the PlayStation 3 on January 17. The new iteration of the racing game includes the title, all Spec 2.0 updates, and a voucher good for five downloadable content packs. The included DLC packs are the Racing Car Pack, Car Pack 2, Course Pack, Racing Gear Pack, and Paint Pack.
Additionally, the XL Edition includes a reversible inside cover sheet emblazoned with the Red Bull X2011 vehicle. The new cover can be viewed at the PlayStation Blog.
