[GS] - The most expensive special edition of any game Grid 2 : Mono Edition - Page 6

post #51 of 55
The marketing already seems to be working, just saw that yahoo had an article on it and who knows how many others will also have an article on it.

Ya, the other day I bought a Ferrari (for example) and the vendor gifted me a phone charger


Actually EFF that, I bought the phone charger for half a million dollars and it came with a Ferrari

Now if you would excuse me, let me go register my own world record





Marketing stunts are understandable. But this one is utterly stupid.

Here's some crazy insight for you:

If they never put a price on it they couldn't have it entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the most expensive special edition.

Just read the article beforehand, man.

Can it go down in the record books as the only game in history thus far to come with a road legal car? tongue.gif

Edit: My post will probably get deleted with this, but colour me surprised; road car "discussions" on a PC enthusiast website.

or, just have the cast of BBC's Top Gear hand deliver that special copy. i would happily accept that, instead.

or why not both?

Not much of a TG fan anymore, but I would pay to have The Stig drive the UPS truck to my house and personally deliver the game.
