Polyphone Digital's latest racer, entitled Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition,

cars, tracks, locations, and original features in tact; as
well as a coupon good for $20 worth of DLC, including the previously
released Racing Car Pack, Car Pack 2, Course Pack, Racing Gear Pack,
and Paint Pack. Wow. How's that for a jam-packed edition?
... No? Nothing? Moving on...

with the tweaks and additions introduced in last October 2011's Spec 2.0 update, and come packaged in a fancy reversible coversheet
showcasing the new Red Bull X2011 supercar (above).
Turismo 5 XL arrives for North American race fans on January 17 for
