Thread updated to be more generic.

What you get with different editions?
- This taken from: uk.playstation.com/ps3…-5/
Confused with the different edition of the game coming out? ... Then read on to see what you get and who is selling it.

Release date: 24th November 2010

*** Not many deals on for GT5, but cheapest standard version is £31.99 from Jackofallgames (though reports of a bad retailer experience... don't recommend!)

*** Please share with everyone which edition you pre-ordered, where from, and how much!

I am a GT fan, but also a HUKD fan ... hence looking for a bargin!

*** Also, who has a Steering Wheel? Which model and how much / where purchased?

Thanks,
Banzai.

PS - If there is enough interest, as with the BFBC2 thread, we could share PSN ID's and setup races.. possbily a HDUK GT5 Clan?!

@splatsplatsplat - Buggati Veyron is included according to this list of the 1000 cars: ultimatecarpage.com/for…712

Don't see any official GT5 guides out yet... maybe there won't be any! ... there is this "The Art of GT5" though! X)

I think there's rumours of a Robin Reliant DLC available on 1st April 2011

Do you swallow it, or are you saving it up for a real burst of technicolour yawn on the (eventual) release day?

Also, how many pieces of downloadable content do you think there will be for this title?

It's already jam packed says "perfectionist" Yamauchi... but his online team will make sure there's DLC (another hundred or two cars, more tracks, more modes...).

My Lounge - online mode just gets better
http://eu.gran-turismo.com/c/binary/images/14245/image01a.jpg
This is a private room that only your "Friends" set through the PlayStation®Network can enter.
In My Lounge, it is possible to set race regulations and tracks of your choice, and hold racing events with your friends. Up to 16 players can participate in the race, and even if you are not in the race yourself, you can watch it through a variety of race cams. You can also participate in free runs before the start of the race.
Imagine this: You set a time for a race using the messaging feature, and then wait for people to arrive while you race free runs on the track. Your friends start to join one by one, and once everyone’s arrived, the race can be started. Friends that showed up later can watch the race and chat.

"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.

Good article FP.

They should be honoured to be virtualised and thank Polyphony Digital for the tourism / turismo!

What next? Fox bans MoH... they didn't ban EA with BF2 mods!

Edit: Why US gets ahead of Japan and UK?! "Gran Turismo 5 is due to release on November 2 in the US and November 3 in the UK."

And why Amazon.co.jp gets the Apex Drivers' strategy guide included in the standard version (first production version)?! (¥6,355 ~£48)

Edit 2: Amazon.co.uk need to learn from their Japanese counterparts and start IMPORTING!

Is anyone else thinking what i'm thinking?
