GT6 Pre-Ordering vs 15th Anniversary Edition (US)

15 replies 1017 views Edited Aug 22, 2013

It's strange that the information from GT british website differs from the US website.

 

My understands about GT6 versions are:

 

- GT6 Standard Edition doesn't have 15th Ann. cars included

- GT6 15th Edition has 20 15th Ann. cars included with book + 1,000,000 credits (and goodies)

 

Now, if you pre-order any versions (Standard or 15th Ann. Edition) at a participating retailers, you'll receive 5 additional 15th cars which are not included in the 20 ones that comes with the 15th Ann. Edition. That makes a total of 25 15th Ann. cars.

 

Is that correct?

 

I think the US information is wrong and you'll get anyway 1,000,000 Cr. with the 15th Ann. Edition, it's not a pre-order gift from Amazon.

 

Thanks for any clarifications for us in North America.

My info suggests that that is incorrect. Somehow this report has morphed the Amazon and Gamestop extras. Gamestop is offering 15 special cars with Pre-order while Amazon pre-order offers 5 cars and 1 million in credits.

My understanding so far-
It depends on the retailer. Amazon had the preorder that came w/ the 1,000,000 credits and Gamestop had the 20 bonus cars. Those are only ones I researched due to logistics (Amazon ships free >$25 and GS is the only "local" retailer save for WalMart.)

Once I found out about the extra cars I preordered w/ GS. They even said I could upgrade if there was a Collectors Edition.

Actually:

 

http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/products/gt6/preorder/

 

There is the five cars for the 15th anniv edition.

 

Then Gamestop adds 25 cars for preordering.  Total of 30 cars.

 

Although looking at the lists...   The five are in the list of 25, so I was wrong.      Gamestop adds 20, for the 25 total, but they do add the "other" custom items too...

 

Amazon adds a million credits to the five cars...

 

Hope this helps.

So what we have here is "Hyped Advertising" both are offering the same package deal but one is offering a different "sounding" deal.

I don't want to add to the confusion, but the UK website makes more sense to me. Now you'll say that this is NOT north america and you're right, but there's definately some misunderstood between the 15th Ann. edition and the gifts from the pre-ordering options.

Europe is getting one (much better) deal, the US is getting a watered-down version including pieces of the same thing, IF you preorder from selected vendors, you get part of what Europe gets for preordering, anywhere...

Makes sense. Kinda sux to be us, as opposed to being European, I guess, but is pretty self-explanatory...

Not really.. 
In the US, the Pre-Order Deals are for the Standard Edition...
Both get the 4 car pre-order bonus pack

plus the Precision Pack

Amazon - you get the 5 15th aniv cars (called the Precision Pack),  Plus 1,000,000 startup credits.

GS you get the 5 15th aniv cars (called the Precision Pack), Plus the 20 additional cars Plus the suits, helmets and other add ons..

 

So from GS, you get the Best Standard edition Pre-order Bonus of them All.. all the content of the “Anniversary Edition”  but no Collectors book and No Steel case.

In the US there will Also be a Steel Bookcase 15th “Anniversary Edition” for More $$$ that Includes all of the above plus the Collectors Book and a Steel case.

There are no Pre-Order bonuses for the Steel Case “Anniversary Edition” (maybe the 4 card pack)

 

If you already Pre-Ordered, you can upgrade to the “Anniversary Edition” for a few more $$$$

 

 

Which Is the Same Info I see on the UK site...

Get the “Anniversary Edition” , or preorder the standard edition and select a Bonus pack..


But the UK Standard edition Pre-Order includes the Precision Pack of 5 15th Aniv cars

and choice of  5 different Options for Bonus selection..  

4 Different 5 car packs, 

Torque Pack

Velocity Pack

Performance Pack

Adrenaline Pack

or 1,000,000 credits..
