A few big pieces of Forza Motorsport 5 news have hit the interwebs - because we know the guys at Turn 10 Studios couldn't stay quiet after Polyphony's Gran Turismo 6/Ayrton Senna deal that was recently announced. The biggest bit of info is a limited edition of the game, called the Paddock Edition.

According to Polygon, the Paddock Edition is limited to 3,000 units, and won't come cheap, at $120 a pop. That deal is made more difficult to swallow by the fact that it won't even include a copy of the game. What it will offer Forza's most hardcore fans is an FM hoodie, a stainless-steel water bottle, valve stem caps, a key chain and a set of supposedly bomb-proof Spy Optics sunglasses. If you want a game to go with your swag, the Limited Edition version, which offers extra cars and such, can be tacked on for an extra $80.

Besides the Forza-branded tchotchkes, Turn 10 announced another 22 cars for FM5, including fan-favorites like the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe, 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO, 1961 Jaguar E-Type S1, 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and 2012 Hennessey Venom. You can hop over to the Forza Motorsports 5 blog for a full list of new additions to the game.

And finally, just because it's the weekend and we aren't doing any work anyway, Joystiq came up with three-minute video of in-game footage, featuring a Ferrari 599 GTO lapping the legendary, and already announced, Spa-Francorchamps Grand Prix circuit. Take a look below for the video. Forza Motorsport 5 will arrive alongside the XBox One on November 22, 2013.

I have it pre-ordered :)... I'm not going to lie if I was just going to "game" and not use the other entertainment purposes, I wouldn't have pre-ordred it but still would have wound up with it. I'm pretty excited about it.

Let me know how they are, still leery about buying a console for just one game.
