I wonder which Software Version will get the latest updates faster or first?

A normal Moto G or a Google Play Edition Moto G?

Would it be better to flash a GPE ROM on a normal Moto G to get the latest Updates that are going to maybe come this summer faster?

This is a characteristic, The Moto G google play edition upgrades are always the first than the normal moto G because there's no motorola's customization and carrier's customization

Sorry about my english =) i'm learning

Your choice. It depends on what do you like the most: google apps or moto customized apps (e.g. launcher, camera etc.).

Id say go with the GPE. Its easier to unlock/relock the Bootloader because you don't have to go through the Motorola unlock website, you'll get updates before regular moto g will, and if you have any hardware issues after your rooted you can just unroot and relock the Bootloader and send it in to google. If you Bootloader unlock a regular moto g, the warranty is permanently voided and there's no way to hide it because you HAVE to go through the Motorola unlock website.

The GPE moto g is basically a cheaper plastic version of a Nexus 4 [emoji4]

i Think its better the Motorolas ROM because you can flash (With the bootloader unlocked) a kernel, for example the Hybrid Kernel by Faux
Motorolas has the F2FS file system and Google Play Edition has ext4 file system thats why most of kernels can't work with GPE.
