Gamer: Gran Turismo 5 Release Date, Trailer, Collector’s Edition

Lifestyle, News I By John Beltz Snyder I June 16, 2010

Sony is making the most of this year’s E3 expo, and Gran Turismo 5 is in the spotlight again. We now have a (new) release date, another trailer, and details about the $99 Collector’s Edition.

Gran Turismo 5’s release date is scheduled for November 2, 2010, just in time for holiday shopping (not that we’re going to wait that long). For $99, one can scoop up the Collector’s Edition, which includes five downloadable vehicles, a keychain, a 300-page guide to cars and driving, and, most importantly,  a 1:43 scale diecast Nissan GT-R.

While we don’t usually pick up special editions of games, this is one we can’t pass up. Extra in-game content and another model car for our collection? We’re going to go preorder that bad boy right now.
