    edward_v12 always amazes us. Every new addition is a great find.

    Wish it was easier to find GT stuff around here. Apart from GT5 CE, haven't purchased anything GT related for quite some time.

    Is GT5 sold in Brazil a Portuguese package?

    Yes, but trust me it's not worth it. It's expensive (199 Reais), the case has a big blu-ray logo, there's no inside cover art and the CD art print quality is terrible. It has it's own serial code : BCUS98114SA

    Don't most Portugese games have terrible packaging, lots of stickers, inferior quality art, things like that?

    All my PS3 games bought in Portugal are the same quality as the others bought from other regions.

    Sony Brazil instead of doing the same, are ripping off their customers with an expensive price and subpar product quality.

    Well, ripping off only the people that somehow accept paying their ridiculous prices instead of buying imports. And i'm not one of those.

    I don't have a much space for displaying in my room.
    usually I put them in cases with desiccant, and maintain it.

    Watching your collection, I´ve remember the GT3´s commercial in which a car stops to enjoy the rain effects in the game. Awesome!!
