The lights are on
Traditionally, Gran Turismo titles can be a slow grind. Working your way up the ranks to get better cars can involve some re-doing of races, but Gran Turismo 6's pre-order bonuses will certainly help the situation.
Pre-ordering Gran Turismo 6 at GameStop gets you a free upgrade to the Gran Turismo 6 15th Anniversary Edition, which comes with 20 cars (with exclusive performance or visual upgrades), the Beyond the Apex II app, and customized paint chips, helmet, racing suit, and PSN avatar.
If you pre-order the title at Amazon, you get the first four cars on the list below, as well as $1 million in in-game credits to get your career jumpstarted.
Gran Turismo comes out for PlayStation 3 this holiday season. For more screens and a trailer, check out this footage from E3.
No matter which way you go, that '95 Civic hatchback should have some pretty vaunted company in your garage.
Here's a list of the GameStop pre-order cars:
BMW Z4 GT3 2011
Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 2013
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) 2014
Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance 2013

So either a bunch of cars, or 4 cars and a cool million? I think I'd take the bunch.
Well looks like I'm definitely preordering this.
Sweet! Always loved Gran Turismo! I am really looking forward to the release.
:/ <-- My reaction to not being able to pre-order right now.
I really can't wait to play this, though.
I just played 5 the other day! :D
Some nice cars there it sounds like for both.
theres go my sleep on the Endurance tracks! love the GT series
Rather earn the cars myself. Can I have a air freshener and keychain instead? Hell maybe even a cheap cloth steering wheel grip.
I always sort of thought that earning your cars and moving up the ranks was the entire point of these games. I'm not sure why you want to ruin that by getting 20 super-cars right out of the gate.
I suppose you could just not use them, and then have them around later when you get to the point where you would normally be using cars of this caliber.
That's a lot of cars to not include if you don't pre-order. How many other features do they plan on blocking without pre-ordering with putting in micro-transactions. I can understand a few cars. 5 tops but 20 is unacceptable.
20 cars or 4 cars + $1M... hard decision.
Level-grinding in Gran Turismo have been one of the biggest, most annoying barriers to me enjoyment of 5. Glad to see that they're trying to help out players on this one for a change, but wouldn't it have bee nice to just take out that kind of level-grinding no strings attached? Still not keen on pre-ordering this just yet, but that is a good deal.
I hope the game doesn't take 9 gigs. I bought GT5 and I only played it for a while because I need as much memory for other upcoming games.
I'm pre-ordering from Amazon.
Crap! It's like their forcing me to preorder it. I don't want to, but I might just do it. Well played.
