    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to share my ever-growing collection of gaming stuff with you all! I mainly collect rare Gran Turismo titles, press-related items of my favourite game series, and dev discs (alpha, beta preview, review discs etc.)

    I hope you all enjoy having a look through. (I've uploaded all the photos to Facebook, to stop this thread being too image-heavy.) :)

    Some new additions!

    Gran Turismo KB Toys Demo Disc

    Gran Turismo Rental Version

    Now, this is what I believe to be a development build of Gran Turismo PSP - I can't be 100% sure as I haven't tried it out yet. Interestingly, the sticker on the memory card says PD (Polyphony Digital) Fixtures, (I think!).

    Nice collection. I do envy some of your items, specially GT2000 and the press packs.

    By the way, really enjoy your youtube channel as well.

    Thanks, both!

    Really glad to hear you enjoy my channel too, Johnny. I'm always on the lookout for more GT items to make videos of, as well as simply to add to my collection.

    I think I remember seeing your collection before Johnny - do you have it uploaded anywhere? I'd love to take another look.

    I think the topic still exists, but the pictures are probably down by now. Really have to take new pictures soon, but first i need to sort some stuff and organize some boxes.

    Thinking about it, we had a collaboration group (myself, Nev, ortus, edward_v12, alexbrasil and concept) with the goal of creating a master list of every single related GT item in existence. We did managed to create a spreadsheet with tons of items. I'll try contacting the guys and see if i can invite you. You surely qualify and maybe you can add some items too.

    Yes, I'd very much like to be a part of that. :) Hopefully I can contribute something too. Interestingly, I actually came across a Gran Turismo one-make special edition that I never knew existed, on a Japanese blog post. It was a Subaru special edition, which was apparently used with a simulator. You guys might have heard of it already.

    Thanks Ortus. It's great to chat to you again,it feels like it's been a while! Anyway, I'll upload all my new items here and on my Facebook album too, as and when I buy things.

    I remember that simulator. It was a 3 screen moving cabinet. If i'm not mistaken, it had two versions, one with the Gran Turismo logo and the other with the Subaru rally logos.

    As for the spreadsheet, it's hosted on ortus GoogleDrive account and shared with us. I'll send him a PM and he'll contact you.

    I really love your collection and am looking forward to seeing more, simply because GT is my favourite game of all time. Just as a reference, I spent over 4000 hrs on GT5 since day one in 2010. Truly an amazing collection.

    Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed looking through my collection. Do you collect GT items yourself, or just enjoy playing the games?

    GTA 3 promo IT.jpg I managed to pick up the PAL-IT (Italian) version of the Grand Theft Auto 3 Promo disc - now I have both the PAL-UK and PAL-IT variants.

    Does anyone know if there are any differences with the NTSC version? Or anywhere else in Europe and beyond?

    Lots of new items lately, so I'll just update this thread with a few of them.

    GTA / Rockstar:

    Picked up another Rockstar E3 2001 Press Disc. This one came with a few extras however, including a Rockstar catalogue, stickers, and badges (not pictured). If you're interested in knowing more about it:

    I also picked up a Vice City Promo, which goes nicely with the two GTA 3 Promos I have already.

    A while ago, I also got a third GTA 3 soundtrack sampler. Anyone know if there are any more to collect?

    I also picked up a Review Build of Thrasher: Skate and Destroy. This takes the total to four in my every-slowly-growing Rockstar betas collection... Anyone got any others they might like to sell? :)

    Gran Turismo:

    Two new items to add to the Gran Turismo Collection: Gran Turismo 4 First Preview and Gran Turismo 4 Prologue (hologram cover version). This First Preview seems to be older than the more regular one: http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/144005679001

    Street Fighter:

    Two SFIV Preview Builds from eBay:

    Street Fighter 4 beta.jpg

    Simpsons Hit and Run:

    A beta build of the game. Not tested it thoroughly yet, though it certainly works. So it'll be interesting to explore this more.

    Gran Turismo 3 Le Mans 2001 Press Materials

    New item! Never seen one of these before, ever... I presume it was created for this specific event. If anyone has any extra info on it, it'd be interesting to know more! I'm sure that, when I get around to checking out what's on the discs, there'll be more info there too.
