Now that I'm at home I can flesh out the info released. See that lovely picture above with all the custom painted cars? Those are the 15th Anniversary special pre-order cars, painted in the 15th Anniversary livery. It's not just paint, but they come with performance upgrades as well. The four
five shown are available if you pre-order from anywhere
. This is the best type of bonus because if you buy soon after release the free code is usually in the box anyway. Then there's the GameStop pre-order bonus that gives these five, and 20 more! That's 25 total 15th Anniversary cars along with a special suit, helmet, paint chips, and PSN avatar. This is a giant pack of special cars and if you like to start a game with everything then more power to you. I smell a "this will all be available to purchase later" deal coming up so it's just added value for those that bite. Amazon is giving $1,000,000 of in game currency, on top of the five car pack, with their pre-order. Once again I won't bite but some folks love this stuff.Vision GT
This is new to me and I think it deserves a callout. From the link above:
In celebrating 15 years of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital has announced a unique partnership with a number of leading automotive manufacturers, design houses and other leading global brands. Design teams from Alfa Romeo, Alpine, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Bertone, GM Design, Honda, Infiniti, Italdesign Giugiaro, JORDAN Brand, Mercedes-Benz, Nike, Nissan, Peugeot, SRT(Chrysler), Volkswagen and Zagato will create concept models giving a unique insight into the future of the automotive sector. Their designs will then be recreated as working cars for GT6.
This opens up an entire new world of future automotive design as before you would just see and read about it online, but now you’ll actually be part of the experience firsthand in Gran Turismo 6.
Polyphony Digital will release the cars from 2013 to 2014 as gifted downloadable content (DLC) to owners of Gran Turismo 6 through online update.
Cool idea and yay free stuff. They did this before with a couple of concept cars but now it's a real development deal for the game. Actual automotive engineers let loose in the GT6 simulation? Should be interesting at least. December can hurry up and get here so I can get the Xmas present to myself.
