I've had this game on my wishlist for a while now and this is the lowest I've seen it: http://amzn.com/B006JKARN0 Also comes with a 30 day PS+ trial.

Enjoy!

With my never ending back log I've been waiting for this to go down. Is it worth it at $19.99? Maybe $15 or below, I'll bite or maybe I'm just dreaming :P. Thanks for the post op.

I've been wanting this game and $20 is the perfect price. Played for about 2 hours last night and very good.

No tax and free PS+ is sweet! Thanks, well, no tax until next month.

Sigh..... Didn't you read the post about this... That's like making another saying uncharted 3 is $20 and another saying god of war origin collection is also $20

Does this have all DLC on disc or is it digital, might try to pick up preowned for even cheaper if it does.

No, all the DLC is digital. The only real advantage here is that the 2.0 update is already on the disc.

And the 2.0 update was pretty massive size-wise.

What's different about the DLC?

I have the original GT5 and bought the first DLC pack when it was first released. So is it worth it if you already have GT5? :bouncy:

Well I never purchased Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, which would have been better for me since I don't really want a deep/complicated racing game. Didn't buy Gran Turismo 5 because of the price. I really just wanted an arcade style of racing without the hurdles of having to do a campaign.

I got no excuse now to not own this, except wait for a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on games $20 or less.

I just read a review on amazon that indicates he was disappointed with the XL version because the fastest car is already available from the start instead of having to earn it by working for it. I assume he is saying it is part of the free DLC, but now I am officially interested in getting this. I played the crap out of GT1 & GT2 years ago, but never played 3 & 4 despite buying them, so I knew better than to get Prologue or 5 cause I would never get to them. No that it sounds like you can start off with a fun car right away I might actually pick this up. I just couldn't bear the thought of starting off with a Ford Fiesta and spending 100 hours working your way up.

I need to check into this further, but if this price comes down some or a B2G1 I might not bother to wait for the Academy Edition to eventually come out stateside.

Damn, it has hardly dropped at all since I traded my GT5 vanilla in on January 5th after hearing about the XL Edition. I got $17.50 through Amazon.

Yeah, I think I have Gran Turismo 3 that I only played maybe once or twice. I played Gran Turismo 2 a little more before then.

What is this Academy Edition that all of you speak of? What I've seen from Joystiq's website is it is Gran Turismo 5 with a special Nissan car.

I'll get this Academy Edition if it is Gran Turismo 5 XL with some more extras. I want the definitive edition, get the most for my money.

It says it comes with $20 worth of DLC. Is that BS stuff thats already free for vanilla GT5 players? I already have the vanilla version and if its only 2.0 update on disk then this is not worth it for me

There is some additional DLC you would have to pay for if you have the vanilla copy. I bought the first DLC pack and this has a little more DLC but it also comes with a free month of PSN+. That's like a $15 value :bouncy:

Here's what you get: "Voucher good for over $20 worth of DLC content, including the Racing Car Pack, Car Pack 2, Course Pack, Racing Gear Pack, and Paint Pack."

Here's the list of DLC you get with the XL version and don't forget the 1 free month of PSN+
