Gran Turismo 5 fans who splashed out on the extravagant GT5 Signature Edition have encountered a number of issues as the codes allowing them to redeem exclusive cars fail to be recognised as valid.
Repeated posts on Sony’s official Gran Turismo 5 forum has revealed a number of distressed Signature Edition owners have received an ‘invalid’ message when attempting to redeem the five collector’s edition cars that come included in the game’s £150 Signature Edition.
The issues facing Signature Edition owners come after massive online demand caused GT5 single player gamers to be hit by repeated loading delays and slow, impeded gameplay. Whilst Sony has acknowledged the online feed problems an announced a patch due to launch this weekend, no official word has yet arrived regarding the invalid Signature Edition codes.
Coming packed in an exclusive metallic black Signature Edition contoured metal case, the £150 Gran Turismo 5 offering includes a GT branded Mercedes SLS AMG 1:43 model car, GT stamped leather wallet, a branded USB key containing exclusive Gran Turismo video content and a new Polyphony designed dynamic theme. A GT branded key fob, Signature Edition coffee table book and a drivers guide also join the five downloadable collector’s edition cars that feature special performance enhancements and exclusive liveries.
