Train2Game News: UK Top 20 Games – 03.06.13

Grid 2Codemasters speed to the top of the Chart for the first time since ‘F1 2010’ back in 2010 thanks to Grid 2.  The sequel goes one better than its predecessor which could only manage number 2 five years ago. Apart from that, the top twenty is very quiet with no new entries this week.

Train2Game News: Worlds Most Expensive Game

Grid 2 special editionCodemasters have announced that the world’s most expensive videogame – the GRID 2: Mono Edition – is available for pre-order with a price tag of £125,000.

This exclusive edition of the game is available for just one customer and includes the highly-anticipated racing game GRID 2, 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.

The BAC Mono is a British manufactured, road-legal, ultra-high performance supercar which stars in the game. Created from high-strength carbon fibre, the BAC Mono is an unrivalled example of light-weight performance engineering and its 2.3 litre, 280 bhp four cylinder power plant will propel its driver from 0-60 m.p.h. in just 2.8 seconds.

At £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” and will include a range of extras for the buyer to enjoy the ultimate experience of racing the car in-game and driving it in real life. The GRID 2: Mono Edition includes:

  • 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

The GRID 2: Mono Edition is available to pre-order at www.game.co.uk/en/grid-2-bac-mono-edition-228776.

“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.”

The game’s record-breaking achievement has been shortlisted for entry into the next Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition.

GRID 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the BAFTA-award winning, critically acclaimed Race Driver: GRID and will invite players race only the world’s most exciting racing cars on city streets, licensed circuits and open-roads. From Paris to Dubai and Barcelona to California, gamers will journey from rookie to racing superstar as they blaze to the top of World Series Racing, a new world of professional motorsport.

While the GRID 2: Mono Edition is a one-off, the standard edition of GRID 2 will race into retail on Friday, May 31.
