GameStop wants 300 for DiRT 3 Limited Edition

first_imgUsually, when a game gets a limited edition announced you expect to pay $20-$40 more on it, and in return you get something collectible like a book, DVD, and/or some in-game content. But GameStop want a lot more cash for the DiRT 3 Limited Edition, $299.99 to be specific, but in return you will get a Ken Block Gymkhana RC Fiesta.So while the price may seem high, you are getting something a bit special in the form of a ready-to-race remote control sports car from Traxxas.AdChoices广告It has an officially licensed Ford Fiesta body and Ken Block Energy Graphics, as well as officially licensed Volk racing wheels. Out the box it can do 30mph+, but can also be pushed all the way to 50mph+ using its Velineon 380 motor and Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery coupled with an opitonal Pinion Gear, second battery, and speed connector.Whether this appeals or not depends on your interest in Radio Control cars, but even if you aren’t this actually works out to be a bit of a bargain. The same Ken Block limited edition Fiesta is listed on the Traxxas website with an SSP of $550. So rather than seeing this as an expensive game, you could view it as a very cheap remote controlled racing car.This is sure to be a very limited stock of these bundles, so if you’re interested get pre-ordering. You may actually find the car holds your interest longer than the game, especially if you start pushing it up to 50mph and racing it against others.DiRT 3 is set to be released on May 24 and includes the already previewed Gymkhana mode, the video of which can be viewed above. You can also see a video of the RC in action below:Read more at GameStoplast_img read more
