DiRT 3 and Traxxas team up to wreck our wallet – Click above to watch video after the jump

The third installment in the DiRT video game franchise, DiRT 3, hits stores on May 24, 2011. It will cost you $59.99 for a copy, which is steep, but completely in-line with the pricing for today's video games. If you have a few extra coins hiding under the couch cushions, however, then GameStop has a tantalizing product bundle for you. Spend $299 to reserve a copy of DiRT 3, and you will also get the Traxxas Ken Block R/C Ford Fiesta.

If you were already considering buying the radio-controlled gymkhana machine, then this is a great deal, because it essentially throws the game in for free. If, like us, you were thinking of buying the Codemasters game, and you currently have R/C cars on the brain, this deal means you have to explain to your wife why the American Express bill shows a GameStop purchase for nearly five times the previously discussed amount.

Click past the jump to see why sleeping on the couch will be worth it come May 24. Thanks to all for the tips!

      This is not the deal Traxxas, DiRT, Block and Codemasters want you to think this is. Don't get me wrong because I'm quite the fan of all of those things I just listed. But the car you get is worth around $200 and the game is worth $60 new. Do the math. I asked a Traxxas rep who was at the Long Beach Grand Prix and he confirmed it.

        true to a point. a standard Fiesta is 200 but the ken block variety is 280-300, with which you get better graphics and a better motor. probably not worth 80-100 but worth the 40 if you were going to get both anyway

      Awesome, except there's no preorder for PC, and no bundle either.

      This is the brushed version of the rc car and sells for 199.99. The brushless version (much faster, 65mph with the right battery) is 310.00.
