I'd get this bundle if they could send the PS3 when it comes out in a few weeks, don't mind waiting for GT5 CE(been waiting years so a few months is nothing). But i don't think they will do that.
#2
That doesn't sound bad Actually.
#3
Would have snapped this up if they had brought out a GT5 themed PS3 as opposed to using the standard slim PS3

Awesome deal. Compared to the standard retail price you're effectively getting GT 5 Collector's Edition (RRP £60) for free! Just pre-ordered. Can't see this being bettered elsewhere tbh.

Heat added.

By the way - does anyone know if this includes the PS Move controller? I thought the 320 GB would come with Move by default, but there's no mention of this in Play's listing.

As I mentioned earlier today in the "Gran Turismo 5 [PS3] - What you get with different editions" Misc thread:

Assuming the title is actually released on the most recently scheduled date...

"Gran Turismo 5 upsets Siena" (VG247.com)
August 22nd, 2010 @ 14:53 By Joe Anderson

The Consortium for the Protection of the Palio has warned Sony its unhappy about the use of its new karting track in Gran Turismo 5, which is based around the Piazza del Campo.

Piazza del Campo is a historic public space in Tuscany, Italy, which is used to host the Palio di Siena, a horse race held twice each year on July 2 and August 16 in which ten horses and riders, bareback and dressed in the appropriate colours, represent ten of the seventeen or city wards.

As you can see in the video below, the track and flags are represents in high detail.

Anna Carli, CEO of the Consortium for the Protection of the Palio, suggested there will be a diplomatic request to SCEI to resolve the situation, possibly by removing the offending items.

She also adds if this move does not suffice, they may ask lawyers to seize the release of Gran Turismo 5 until such time it is.

“You can not use images of Contrade, in this case the flags, without authorization. Given the relevance of the game with no history and references to our party, in particular with the use of images of flags of the contrade, we would not authorize use.”

Hopefully this will all blow over and Gran Turimso 5 will still be released on time, we’d hate to see another delay.

Gran Turismo 5 is due to release on November 2 in the US and November 3 in the UK.

Thanks, Corriere.it.

Highly unlikely. I would say that I am positive that it won't but I cannot say that.
I'm sure there will be a Move bundle at some point (I think Fanpages mentioned a Sport champions one but that maybe a non-EU release).

Going back to GT I didn't know it had karts in it, pretty cool. I had gone cold on GT but I may get it at some point simply due to the huge amount of content that it appears to offer.

Nearly £300? Ouch, not much of a deal if you ask me considering you can get a ps3 inbetween 150 - 200 on a deal and just upgrade the hdd and get the game later, still cheaper

Not that I would though

# Vertical Stand for PS3 Slim (CECH-2000 series)
# By utilising the Vertical Stand (sold separately), users will be able to set the PS3 Slim in vertical position, making it easier to place the PS3 anywhere at home.

150 - 200? considering thats a 120gb then a decent 320gb hdd will cost 50quid ish so 250 then the collectors edition of gt5 60 all that equals 310. (-25 discount here, you could get another game for that)
so even with your trollish attitude, and with no proof of anywhere i can actually get a 150 quid ps3 slim, you might need to rethink that spam strategy ;)

True, although I would have preferred the Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition to be included, we can't have everything though.

Yep they will ban both your PS3 and PSN ID (Funnily enough this is what i just posted on the other thread)
I don't know why people can't pay for games? Most games are like £10 nowadays, there are a lot of tight people.

Do yourself a favour, if you can get a smaller HDD version for about £40 cheaper, then get it plus a 500GB 2.5" HDD (about £40-£45) and an enclosure for about £6.
PS3 HDDs are so easy to upgrade (even tells you how in the manual), plus you can use the smaller HDD you remove in the enclosure as a backup drive.

The same people who will then moan that the software developers & publishers are not investing in the console & not releasing any new titles.

PS. A comment (from nearly two days ago) where I was called "an odd one" for suggesting a ban would happen...

Some people won't care about bannage btw. Just look at the 360, some just want to play offline. :)

Personally I think this deal isn't up to much, I'm sure nearer xmas when this is released prices will be much more competitive.

10 quid - a year after release or some really crap game...most games are 39.99-49.99 which is WAAAAY too much for a 5-6 hours of fun.

I dont care, have my flashed xbox and say whatever you want to say - still play online since it was flashed and its been more than a year now ;) and, yes - im a pirate. who gives a **** ?

Yeah of course i'm talking about quite long after release.
Uncharted 2 is/was around the £13 margin.
Littlebigplanet has been under £9
Many more examples too.

Or pick them up pre-owned for even cheaper.

Yes that's with an Xbox, but Sony i'm sure would be more strict upon this piracy. Seeing how difficult they made it in the first place.
I'm sure they will also install a new system where new games must show that you have the latest firmware or disc inside or something to play it, and then you would be screwed.

I look forward to what Team Jungle/HyperX come up with.

Also, forced firmware updates - I'm sure someone will come up with a way to remove them from the disc (like on the 360 & Wii).

Erm, ok. Enjoy playing your very limited offline games then....

And bye bye iPlayer, Vidzone, Trophies, Home, Store, and everything else.

(Again, as just submitted to the "other" thread)

I suspect that Sony will be not looking to give away their blessed "Gran Turismo 5" to "the community" (or, indeed, any of the titles they publish for their entertainment system) & measures will be being investigated, researched & trailed now (around the clock) to block the highly-advertised "crack" used by the "USB dongles" of this nature as soon as practically possible.

If other publishers feel that they cannot guarantee their titles will not be purchased legally then they too may think twice before engaging in time & cost-consuming development in the future.

A (or more than one) revised System Software release could be rolled-out before November that will be mandatory to install before "Gran Turismo 5" will commence playing at all on any PS3 console.

It may not be the most prudent approach (in terms of upsetting some law-abiding consumers) to insist a player has an active Internet connection with a log-in to PlayStation Network, or that a physical Blu-ray Disc of "Gran Turismo 5" is present regardless of being in "Service" or "Debug Mode", but if that is what is needed to ensure the highly-anticipated multi-million selling (& hence multi-million US dollar/pounds sterling revenue-generating) title is not effectively given away for free then I am sure Sony will take this stance.

I do not foresee myself buying or playing "Gran Turismo 5" (at any cost) but I am in favour of supporting the video games developers & publishers by rewarding their efforts producing the game titles by paying for them.

If I cannot afford any consumable item it is not my right to steal it or use it without any intention of paying for it, but I do acknowledge that piracy occurs because an individual can do so, not because they need to.

The earlier series models of the PlayStation Portable device has suffered greatly from piracy; so much so that developers & publishers had chosen not to release titles on the platform because their effective revenue would be reduced. Nintendo’s handheld gaming device is also suffering because of such practices; and as you know Nintendo have now successfully outlawed the use (sale & purchase) of “flash cartridge” devices by legal measures.

Without the games being made the typical video games consoles buyer has no use for the devices so the hardware sales suffer as well.

Sony is not going to standby & watch as this happens; they are going to be very proactive now they have the benefit of the information so kindly published by those who were clever enough to discover how to achieve their goal, but not smart enough to keep it quiet.

The most profitable crimes are the ones that are not discovered immediately, or are not discovered at all.

blah blah blah same thing was said after PSP was cracked..."we will catch you"..."we will change software" - well they did, it was cracked within hours...

remember when Dark Alex hacked PSP and all Sony did was releasing an update, which was cracked again, and another one...so what they did ? they've proposed Dark Alex to work for them...the game is on now and the ball is on Sony's side now.

The PS3 has been unhackable for like 3 years, the PSP...about 3 minutes.
