This has got to be the best ps3 bundle out there as it has got the collectors edition gt5 which is usually around £60 so you will save loads buying the game and console together.
So 4/5 for the console.
As for GT5, it is a truly brilliant racing simulator, the detail in everything is amazing. And with updates rolling out every now and then, you can tell that the developers are listening to the fans and doing what they want with the game. However, as a game, it's not brilliant. There's no story, or reason to complete this game, just a case of seeing how much you can collect for no real reason.
I also don't think that you get much else out of the Collector's Edition. A few nice pictures which are good to look at, and then just go back in the case. The extra in-game cars are nice, but not really worth the extra compared to the normal version. And the Apex manual-type thing is a brilliant little book, but much like the postcards, nothing really special that would have inspired me to buy the special edition.
So 3/5 for GT5 (as a game) and 5/5 for GT5 (as a racing simulator).
All in all: A brilliant console, with an excellent game, for a decent price. So well worth it. :)
The product works perfectly, no claim whatsoever.
I noticed this combo pack with the PS3 320 gb including Gran Turismo 5 Collectors Edition and had to buy it! I looked around for some time before deciding to make the purchase from Play, as they had the deal for £274.99 which was as cheap as I could find it.
The console itself is as you would expect really. It has a HUGE hard drive that I could never fill in a million years but this deal was cheaper then buying the smaller hard drive console and game seperately. It also plays Blu Ray disks which is a big bonus over the XBOX. Going online is free compared to the £30-40 you pay Microsoft for 1 years Gold membership and to be honest, there is not much difference between the two and I would give the console a 5 star rating.
The game has been critiscised by many people due to loading times, similar to previous game etc etc....
I completed the initial install which did take some time (nearly an hour) but this is down to the size of the game. It doesn't have to be done but shortens the load times considerably and as such you don't have to wait for long once your up and running.
I have not played a GT game since GT2 many years ago and I am really pleased with this. There are SO many cars to buy/unlock and many different avents to keep you entertained. Not all of the vehicles are "Premium" models witha cockpit style view however, there is very little in it and IMO they all look very good.
I have been playing for around a week now and have tons of quality cars as well as a huge amount of cash. You do start with a crappy car and have to earn the rest!Read more ›

I bought this for my brother for Christmas as he had been going on about how great it is for a while. He is glued to the game and doesn't take his eyes off the screen. Read morePublished on 22 Feb. 2011 by Tina R. M. Kerai
