Rumors have been floating around the internet about an even better CE release of Gran Turismo 5 than the one previously announced by Sony. These originated from an interview on Indian Video Gamer where Atindriya Bose (country manager for Sony Computer Entertainment India) stated:
For GT5, there are two collector’s editions. One is the game plus some added content and collectibles, which (has already been announced), while the other is in a really big package with a lot of paraphernalia that goes beyond the game. It’s all car-related, but I’m unaware of the exact contents. That being so expensive, we may not directly order it from Europe, but we could bring in limited quantities from Sony in the Middle East. We’ll also be working with Mercedes in some way around the GT5 launch, but we’re yet to decide the specifics of that.
To lend credence to this news Amazon’s French site recently put up a listing for an “Ultimate Edition” of the game in addition to the Collector’s Edition that was previously announced. Sadly aside from a name and release date it is devoid of details.
