Gran Turismo 5 launches in Japan November 3 with blue PS3

Gran Turismo 5, the racing game with the most ironically slow development ever, will arrive in Japan November 3. It'll be available not only in a ¥7,980 ($93) standalone pack, but in a first-run Limited Edition with five DLC cars and a 308-page book, for the same price.

Sony is also releasing a ¥35,980 ($421) PS3 bundle, called the Gran Turismo 5 Racing Pack, including the LE of the game and a special "Titanium Blue" 160GB PS3 Slim. This joins the recent white version and the Final Fantasy XIII Lightning edition in the set of awesome PS3 Slim variants unavailable to most of us.%Gallery-99681%%Gallery-99682%
