Thanks BoBo, picked up Gran Turismo, it'll probably end up being $10 somewhere but this deal is good enough for me considering NewEgg don't charge me tax.

Bought HRDC for $20 at AMZ and it's still sealed because I was caught up in Tales F and Borderlands 2.....

I am tempted on both of these and have been watching for a price drop. I wonder if either of these might become a PS Plus title in the near future...

If GT does it sitll probably wouldn't include all the dlc that is in this version.

Does anyone know how much all the DLC goes for and if its worth it to get this rather than purchase it on the PSstore?

MF. I forgot that I had purchased GTXL over a month ago on Amazon (for $20) but was on backorder and completely forgot about it. Just received it yesterday in the mail. Could've saved $4 on a game that I probably will never get around to touching. LOL

Does this version of GTXL have a 9-10GB install like the vanilla copy did? Anyone know?

Seems I should be able to get $12-15 for my vanilla GT5. So I think I will take this upgrade for the extra cars and DLC (and hopefully will be able to clear the 2.0 related patches off my hDD, since that's an extra 1GB or 2GB above and beyond the huge install).

The standard version install actually wasn't "mandatory". The loading times were just unbelievably bad if you don't install.

I'm thinking MAYBE that at least some of the patches can be on disc, and not have to be installed. But even that is not certain. I feel pretty certain that the main 10GB install would still be necessary to avoid egregious loading times.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to check deeper into the Sony forums perhaps.

Is this the best version of GT5? Is the Academy Edition coming out in the U.S. or just Europe?

There's no way in hell I would install 10 GB on my PS3. Don't have the space. I usually like to keep at least 10 GB free so that the PS3 runs better. Wasn't Heavy Rain: DC $10 last Thanksgiving at Walmart? I can see it being $10 again next month. $16 is still too much for a game that has been out for a while now.

According to the back of the case, the install is roughly 2.5gigs. I believe all the patches and 2.0 version stuff is included on the disc for this version of the game.

I don't understand why sony does this. You want put "Greatest Hits" on the cover? That's fine, you expect me to put a sickening red case in the middle of my ps3 collection? Out of your f'n mind.

I would rather buy the standard edition in a clear case and buy the DLC over having a disgusting bright red case on my shelf.

What size HDD do you have? I put a 500gb drive in 2 years ago and i barely have half of it full. If you have anything under that i suggest buying a 500gb drive and throwing it in, literally takes 2 minutes to install.

I have the original 160 GB drive that came with the PS3. I do have a WD 500 GB drive I had purchased to replace the HD, but I didn't want to risk losing all my game saves, DLCs and things. Don't have a PC large enough to hold all the save files. Seems too much trouble really to install the 500 GB drive. I should have installed it before, but I couldn't remember my online login password if I remember correctly. :roll:
