They shouldn't do the exclusive offers its almost like cheating needing some decent cars to start the game off with, why can't people play the game from scratch?

Is it really that exclusive if anyone with $100 could pick it up? You didn't get ripped off if you got everything listed for the CE.

Im gametildeth and Im too busy playing to worry about if others get dlc cars for free.What I will say is that I think the CE was not a ripoff at all. Yeah $30 more, yeah they could probably put out the book, car and keychain separately. To certain people, the idea of the CE is to have all the stuff included together in a cool box. Thats it. Its all about the feeling at the moment you get it. Just my 2 cents.

So if its true that this Christmas DLC is only for Japan, which was a location the CE wasn't sold in, and also includes the Jag, which was EU only, how is it that we still spent $30 for a keychain and a toy car????

Seems like the CE buyers still win out in this deal.

There was no reference this was only happening in Japan, please confirm. if so, then this is a moot thread.

The CE are a limited supply - I heard game stop and Amazon sold out before the game was released.  I expect they will be hard to get after Christmas  - so should be exclusive

 

Would be a bummer if they release them  as DLC - especially so soon.  But Forza did the same thing in Forza 2 (I bought my CE version of that game out of Canada for the extra cars but they release them about a year later as a "Platinum game")  GT PSP had "exclusive pre-order cars" and these cars were release on PSN about 6 months later for free.

 

I expect at the very least, they stealth cars will be released as DLC.  I hope they at least keep the chrome line cars exclusive but I wouldn't be surprised to see them given away in time.

I still say if he got everything promised in the CE then he wasn't, nor was anyone else who purchased it, ripped off.

A year, ok, maybe but after a month ?

 

Broken game (GT5), broken promises (exclusivity) and broken trust.
