Gran Turismo 5 Collector's Edition ready for pre-order

Ever since the original Gran Turismo arrived on the Sony PlayStation it has been greeted with huge success and with every consecutive PlayStation release there always have always been a Gran Turismo waiting for it at its door. Well after years of the PlayStation 3 release, the wait for it is finally near. Polyphony Digital is about to release Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3 and it’s about time too!

They have recently just announced that the release date is to be 2nd November. I'm guessing that this is the US release date as there have been no news yet as to when it will be released anywhere else.

This time round they are releasing a "Collector's Edition" along with the standard edition. After checking out the Collector's Edition content details my guess is that it's their way of saying thank you for the fans who have waited so long for this.

Collector's Edition Content Details:
- Gran Turismo® 5 game.
- Exclusive limited edition 1:43 scale diecast 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho.
- In-depth 300-page car-lover's guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital, covering everything from the history of the modern automobile to driving techniques and game reference material.
- Custom etched Gran Turismo key chain.
- Voucher for five (5) exclusive high-end cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades.
- Numbered certificate of authenticity.
- Custom collector's packaging.
