PS3 gets Titanium Blue makeover for Gran Turismo 5 launch bundle; landing in Japan on November 3…..
It was first revealed in 2006, it took Sony years to develop it, but now we finally have a release date (at least for Japan): Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale in this country on November 3 [JP]. And not too surprisingly, Sony Japan will be offering a special bundle that includes a PS3 in an “original” color, namely Titanium Blue.
The console in the so-called Gran Turismo 5 Racing Pack will have a 160GB HDD on board, a Dualshock 3 controller, and a limited edition of the game. This limited edition not only comes with a 308-page “Gran Turismo Magazine” but also gives buyers the chance to download 5 special cars to use in the game: Audi R10 TDI, Honda NSX GT500, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, and McLaren F1.
Shock of all horrors, Gran Turismo 5 actually, finally has a launch date: November 3 (for Japan, anyhow). Of course, being more concerned with hardware as we are, our excitement is focused on the rich blue hue that will adorn PS3 consoles bundled with the grandiosely delayed racing game over in Nippon this fall.
The ¥35,980 ($421) Gran Turismo 5 Racing Pack will be composed of a Limited Edition copy of the game plus a repainted skinny PlayStation 3 with a 160GB hard drive. Time to give your old importer buddy a call, eh?
