Today Sony announced a number of retailer exclusive preorder bonuses for the upcoming Gran Turismo 6. Because everyone loves retailer exclusive preorder bonuses (that’s sarcasm, by the way.)
Everyone who preorders GT6 will get access to four exclusive souped-up cars: the BMW Z4 GT3 ’11, Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 ’13, Tesla Model S Signature Performance ’13 and Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) ’14.
In addition to the car pack, players who preorder from Amazon will also start off with an extra million dollars of in-game currency.
Gamestop customers will receive a free upgrade to the “15th Anniversary Edition” of the game, which includes twenty exclusive cars (including the four mentioned above,) exclusive paint jobs, racing suits and helmets, a PSN avatar, and a blu-ray of Beyond the Apex 2, a behind the scenes documentary that details the development of the game.
I wasn’t really happy with Gran Turismo 5, but I’m optimistic that GT6 will be worth picking up: the even numbered GT’s are always a huge improvement over the games that directly preceded them,and since I won’t be getting an Xbone this Fall, I guess I’ll skip the latest Forza and take a chance with GT6. I kind of hate shopping at Gamestop — the ones in my area always have disorganized shelves and they always smell like regret and old bong water — but Gamestop obviously has the better preorder bonus, so I guess I’ll have to order it from there.
Gran Turismo 6 is scheduled to hit the PS3 this Fall, and unlike the oft-delayed GT5, Sony is promising that this game will be done on time.
