Do You Love Dirt Enough To Spend $US300 On It?

You know, ridiculously expensive collectors editions have their place. There are certain franchises where there are enough loyal fans around who will spend hundreds on a box full of crap. I do not think Dirt is one of those franchises.

That's not to say I think it's a bad franchise! Dirt 2 is one of the best racers around, especially if you can grab it on PC. But it just... doesn't seem like the kind of series that has legions of people going, "Yeah, I love this stuff SO DAMN MUCH I'm going to spend THREE HUNDRED BUCKS on it!"

If you are, though, get a look at this! It's a version of the upcoming racer being offered by GameStop that is listed at $US299.99. For that price, you get two things: a copy of Dirt 3 and a remote control car.

With Dirt 3 going for $US60 on its own, that's an extra $US240 for the remote control car. That's, uh, a ton of money.

Of course, this being a GameStop listing there's no guarantee it'll actually cost that much, so we're checking with THQ just to be sure.

    And here I thought the Black Ops one was expensive...

    I'll reserve judgement until we know abit more about the RC Car... it'll probably be a shit one, but it could be an ok deal.

    Is there a little speaker in the car so Ken Block can tell you how totally wicked sick you are whenever you are driving it?

    Buy the normal version of the game and get a Tamiya DF03-RA (

    Essentially an off-road buggy with a touring car shell. It'll probaly be more Rally compatible than the one you get with the game.

    Yes it's more expensive, but it'll be better than the car they give you. Also in Brisbane I have no idea where to race RC Rally cars.

    The RC car is actually fairly good. It is the Ken Block Gymkhana car from Traxxas.
