Priced from $59.99, the PlayStation 3 game features over 1,000 cars and a wealth of real and fictional road, rally, NASCAR, drift and kart courses.

After countless delays, it appears Gran Turismo 5 will be released at midnight on New Year's Day.

Priced from $59.99 in the U.S., the PlayStation 3 game features over 1,000 cars and a "wealth of real and fictional road, rally, NASCAR, drift and kart courses." If that isn't special enough, a $99.99 Collector's Edition includes a 1:43 scale diecast car, a GT-branded key chain, a voucher for five (5) DLC cars, and a 300-page guide of racing techniques.

Thanks for the tip Eric!
