Would You Purchase Gran Turismo 5 For $180? Sony Thinks You Might — Jokingly

You hear the name Gran Turismo and instantly you know its PlayStation’s biggest franchise — and with good reason. See, when you can sell 4 million copies of a demo (Prologue), it says a lot.

So much so that Sony’s been jokingly talking about selling GT5 at “three times the price” knowing you’d probably still by it.

Would you?

“That’s the beauty of Gran Turismo and what Kazunori Yamauchi has looked to build,” Sony’s Peter Diller told The A List in a recent interview. “The great thing about racing is that it’s accessible and Gran Turismo 5 is a great product to show off your PS3. I remember looking at one of the games from previous generations and thinking ‘how can it get better?’ It’s amazing how life-like they’ve rendered the cars.”

“It’s very accessible and you can play its more basic modes without much difficultly, but it’s the deepest experience in the genre,” he said, adding, “we joke how we can sell it for three times its price. Gamers will lose themselves in it for a month or more and, by contrast, my daughter can have a good time.”

Tell the truth, you’d probably spend that much on the game.

    I just bought the Logitech Driving Force Wireless steering wheel. I’ll be testing it out in a bit on GT5 Prologue. If I feel I need more I’ll return it and get the Logitech Driving Force GT (official Gran Turismo wheel)

    I’d pay extra cash for it, too.
