    So if I order through Amazon do I get the new extras that they are talking about on the GameStop post:

    http://www.gtplanet.net/more-gt6-15th-anniversary-edition-details-pre-order-incentives/

    Or is that only through GameStop? Will it be like GT5 where depending on where in the world you got it you would get different cars?

    I bet all people who said GT6 will take as much or even more than GT5, feel like total idiots now. Never underestimate PD and Kazunori!

    Still don’t how this whole “pre-ordering” bonus is gonna work out… I did pre-order from GameStop, so I’m assured of the bonuses, right? Didn’t want a PS4 from the start, but now have another good reason to not get one. Giggity.

    Ehh, doesn’t matter. Now… to get to Level 40 A-Spec… in 107 days. Oboy.

    • Aug. 21, 11:45am

      Yes, you’re guaranteed the bonus content. Essentially, anyone who preorders from GS will receive the 15th Anniversary edition upgrade for free.

    I’m not getting a PS4 because of this game.

    Cant believe how many mistakes Sony/PD makes with the GT series. Really? Release on December 6th? When everybody at home is playing with his PS4? C´mon they cant do that… A September release would perfect to sell the game… Whatever…

    • Aug. 20, 9:13pm
      Bluntified

      I’m pretty sure the PS4 comes out months after GT6’s release. BTW, if the game is on PS3 or PS4, you’ll still play it right? What’s stopping people from buying a PS4 alongside the game?

    • Aug. 21, 6:38am
      Sele1981

      Ps4 release is on November 15th. I don’t want 2 consoles in my small living room and a lot people say they will sell their ps3 when ps4 comes. They re too late, like on every gt title before.

    • Aug. 21, 11:47am
      HarVee

      They’re only late by a month? A consoles life doesn’t end as soon as the next iteration is released.

    • Aug. 21, 7:01pm
      mr_pepps

      The Old Skool like me won’t buy a PS4, we’ll just enjoy GT6 on our old consoles.
      Lovin it.

    I have a question…. If I preordered already AT a GameStop STORE, Will I receive the same benefits as I will by doing it online?

    Thank you, I’ve been trying so much to find out what the release date was going to be, and now it’s on the 6th. Earlier than I thought.

      Well, to be fair, they can’t delay a release date until they set a release date! Vee vill see, eh? ;)

      Next year probably.

    • Aug. 20, 3:15pm
      ScotteDawg

      Ummm, NO!

      The next GT game after GT6 will be GT7 and that will be on the PS4! GT6 is not a dual release!

    • Aug. 20, 4:48pm
      MLRSparco

      Actually Kaz said himself that GT6 will be coming out for the PS4 later on.Now whether thats 6 months after the ps3 version is released or a year I don’t know.

    • Aug. 20, 9:16pm

      @MLRSparco, when did Kaz say this?? He said “GT” will be coming, not “GT6″, huge difference there.

    Dec 6th would be very impressive if they can make that. Hopefully they can improve the frame rate issues by then.

    108 days until the next greatest PS3 game title in the world! Thank you so much for bringing this out ahead of the dismal Dec31st placeholder date! Can’t wait to drive all those new cars on the new immersive Nurburgring. Guess it’s going to be a sweet AMG unlock weekend!

    Pre ordering doesn’t really seem worth it if the cars all already in the game and not exclusive.

    6th day of december is very very very late (hence bad) from a marketing point of view, PD clearly needs as much time as Sony can allows them.

    • Aug. 20, 1:34pm
      Pit Crew

      Must be a gift to be able to find the Negatives versus the positives, when it comes to anything GT6 related…

    • Aug. 20, 1:47pm
      Milouse

      This is an analyse of a piece of information, not the preview of the game… and the way you consider othesr people as binaries is depressing. But if you want “negative” i can give you the missing one from my original message: should i remember you that not any GT game has ever reach its initial launch date ? Considering the cockpit view big framerates problems in GTA 2013, seeing PD struggle to finish the game in time can raise legitimate concerns. Anyway, half of gamers are pre-ordering games nowadays, ignoring any forthcoming founded critics in exchange of a candy (in-game car in this case).

    • Aug. 20, 2:13pm
      Pit Crew

      A true and beautiful gift. All your doing is rehashing old issues to feed the pessimism…

    • Aug. 20, 2:47pm
      Milouse

      Today’s announced release date can’t be part of an “old issue”, and your “to feed pessimism” as more to do with your negative propensity to read a single phrase and imagine a secret agenda behind it. Considering that i have anything but benefits from Gran Turismo sells (i’m running a GT website), all this is quite funny, actually.

    • Aug. 20, 5:35pm
      Pit Crew

      You said this: should i remember you that not any GT game has ever reach its initial launch date ? Considering the cockpit view big framerates problems in GTA 2013, seeing PD struggle to finish the game in time can raise legitimate concerns.

      That’s rehashing old issues that you cleary brought up.

      Finally getting a release date is a good thing but in your OP it sure looks like you are the one throwing the negative spin on PDs choice to release it on the 6th of December. It’s risky, sure but I guess they have confidence in their product, consumer base, and the time they have left to smooth out the rough edges, which I choose to judge when it’s finished, and stay cautiously optimistic before that time. My negative propensity? lol, Yeah it’s pretty funny…

    • Aug. 20, 7:30pm
      Milouse

      PD choice to what? PD is not making much choice here i’m afraid. On PS3 launch, I asked to an official at Sony why PD was still unable to stick on a release date, he answered that when someone (KY) generates half of revenues of a division, HE decides of the release date. Obviously things has changed. I’m not sure many have noticed but there are “geopolitical” matters at play inside Sony, and with PS4, decisions about design have shifted from east to west. Since PS2 announcement (which i’ve covered from inside Sony Japan and PD offices back in 1999), this is the second time (Vita being first) that PD is not bound to the new console momentum.
      I’m sorry to disappoint you but i’m very not passionate at all about GT6 release date, and all this is strictly cold analysis (not to say professional). There are no old argument, only good and bad – especially for someone who didn’t participate to such debate. And that is not an argument, just a statement. I don’t want to prove something with it, just propose a different perspective than the communication plans that now goes straight from Publishers to Consumers.
      If you hunted for haters or always negative guys, to react to (which i do too sometimes as i’m 40yo and started to play on archaic racing games in 70’s, hence aware of the value of what we have today), you’ve obviously chosen the wrong target.
