Now I’m a huge fan of GRiD ever since I decided to play the first game. I’m actually super excited for the release of GRiD 2 and I’ve only got a week left to wait until it’s mine. But when Codemasters announced this morning that they’re offering one copy of GRiD 2: Mono Edition for £125,000 I thought it was a bit silly.
Available for pre-order right now GRiD 2: Mono Edition will set you back a whopping £125,000 making it the worlds most expensive game. Not because it comes encrusted in diamond nor is the disc made of gold. It’s because you get an actual car.
This exclusive edition is limited to one person and contains the game, a PlayStation 3 to play it on, a 170 m.p.h. BAC Mono supercar – sporting a GRID 2 livery – and full driver race wear. Codemasters aren’t playing around with this special edition eh?
Also with the price tag of £125,000, the GRiD 2: Mono Edition has set a new Guinness World Records™ title for the “Most Expensive Video Game Commercially Available – Special Edition”. So who wouldn’t want to own a record breaking game… and a 170 m.p.h. supercar…
So for £125,000 you’ll get:
• A copy of GRID 2 for PlayStation 3 featuring bespoke packaging artwork
• BAC Mono supercar in exclusive GRID 2 livery
• A day at the BAC factory, which includes a factory tour and time spent with technicians, to customise the BAC Mono for size and specifications
• A GRID 2: Mono Edition branded Bell Racing helmet
• Race suit, boots & gloves all made to measure in BAC Mono and GRID 2 branding
• A PlayStation 3
“BAC is immensely proud and excited at the release of GRID 2: Mono Edition; a game which offers an opportunity for one lucky person to own a truly unique supercar,” said Neill Briggs, Project Director, BAC Mono. “Codemasters has developed a stunning game which focuses on delivering the ultimate driving experience and Mono is the ultimate expression of this, in both the real and virtual worlds.”
I better start raiding my piggy bank and searching down the back of the sofa..
