I made a solemn vow, on the graves of my bank account and credit card last year to never buy collector’s editions for games ever again. I would use common sense and logic in my gaming purchases going forward. After all, first day purchases are a cowardly and superstitious lot. GRID 2 may have just broken my oath.
Throw down £125,000 (R1.8 million) in grinning Queen Elizabeth’s, and you’ll find yourself with not only a copy of the game, but a car as well. A real car, not a remote control one or a scale model. An actual working car.
Codemasters unveiled their Mono Edition earlier, in which a BAC-Mono car will be available. According to the Codemasters press release, the vehicle is “an unrivalled example of light-weight performance engineering and its 2.3 litre, 280 bhp four cylinder power plant will propel its driver from 0-60 m.p.h. in just 2.8 seconds”.
Which is Lamborghini-level marketing talk for “it goes real damn fast”.
The PS3 game also comes with unique pack art, a trip to the BAC factory, an actual helmet, race suit, Playstation 3 console and other digital goodies. Now to convince the powers that be to give me a pay increase.
