What's goin' on here…? Where'd this come from?
As noted by GTPlanet , online retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and Buy.com are suddenly listing the "Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition." Amazon and Newegg say it's coming on January 17, 2012 with a price tag of $39.99.
Apparently, Sony mentioned this edition in a short Sony FAQ pertaining to their PlayStation Rewards Program earlier this month, but we haven't seen or heard anything since. Unfortunately, none of the aforementioned retailers have specific details concerning this "XL Edition," but the general consensus is that it'll be the US version of the GT5 Spec 2.0 disc update recently announced for Japan. That sweet update included all the software updates and available DLC.
Of course, we say it would've been a better idea to release such an edition around the holidays. The first quarter is once again full of hot titles, too. But maybe you've been putting off jumping on the GT5 bandwagon for too long, and you've always regretted it…
