Could this be the final package?

Gran Turismo 5 isn’t due out until this coming Spring. But the potential casing for the final product may have already been spotted in the video below. The surprising part is that Gran Turismo 5 might be comprised of multiple Blu-Ray discs.

1,2...3 discs!

As can be seen in the above screen capture from a promotional Mercedes-Benz video, the packaging for Gran Turismo 5 will house three discs. This may be part of a promotional package or special bundle, though there is no way to tell since the cover does not appear to mention a limited or collector’s edition. As massive of a game as Gran Turismo 5 is shaping up to be, even with over 1000 cars, 20 tracks and all the audio it will contain, it likely fits onto a dual-layer 50 GB Blu-Ray disc. So perhaps these are bonus videos, documentaries, etc.. With the game still a number of months away, it is anyone’s guess if this is the final game or a promotional edition.
