Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition confirmed for US

Updated package includes $20 DLC voucher

Sony has confirmed that it will release Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition in US on January 17.


XL Edition is the US version of Japan's 'Spec II' update announced late last year. It packs on disc the original GT5 game with all of the numerous free updates released so far including the substantial 'Spec II' update.

It'll also come with a voucher for additional download content worth $20, including the Racing Car Pack, Car Pack 2, Course Pack, Racing Gear Pack, and Paint Pack.

And for anyone who thinks 'XL' is a lame title next to Japan's more car-like 'Spec II' edition, the game will come with a reversible inside coversheet that can be flipped to display a 'Spec II' title and the amazing Red Bull X2011 supercar.

That lot will set you back $39.99. With the announcement only on the US PS Blog at present, there's yet to be any word on a UK release.
