I don’t know about anyone actually reading my article, but when I hear about Japan and all the awesome things they get, it makes me want to hop in a boat and try to smuggle myself over to the land of gaming heaven. I know I  could import what I want, but that’s so expensive! So when I heard that Japan will be getting a limited edition PlayStation 3 with Gran Turismo 5, of course I almost ran for the door to hop in that boat and hope for the best.

Did I mention that the PS3 will be blue?

On November 3rd, Sony Japan will be releasing a package bundle containing a 160GB blue PS3 slim and a limited edition of Gran Turismo 5. This special copy of the game will ship in a commemorative ‘#5’ slip cover and will include a 308-page book titled Apex, as well as a special code that unlocks five exclusive cars in-game. How much will this bundle cost? Roughly about $421.

That same game bundle, without the PS3, will also be available for purchase on the same date for about $93. There is currently no information about the bundle coming to America, but keep your fingers crossed if you’re interested!

Being a gamer since the age of 6 (thanks to my parents), a desire to pursue a career in the gaming industry has been my passion ever since I laid my hands on Sonic the Hedgehog. Some of my favorite games include Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, Duke Nukem 3D, Final Fantasy 6, Killer7 and both the Devil May Cry and Resident Evil series.
