    no one knows if we can get the LE car pack as DLC yet. I bet they won't give any details until after the release.

    Does anyone happen to know if the PSN pre-order of Project Cars if for a 'lite' version or early access? 07/05/15 is stated, and it says 'digital edition' which could imply that it is different somehow to the other editions. Wondered if we could expect to see the disc version around the same time. Or not?

    I might still stick with a hard copy as I want to have the box for this bad boy as a mark of triumph. :p

    I have the same addiction with music, I need the cd. With games I usually get the disk simply because I can sell the game on later. Not sure I'll be doing that with this game though as it'll be worth buttons by the time I'm finished with it.

    On my German board I get bashed all the time I when have so much faith in a title. Mostly because I whine about when it sucks after release. :D
    driveclub is a pretty good example of that. I was fooled by Sony, promising a arcade/sim title... My fault.

    But I just want to believe what they are saying. I want it to come true. Don't let me down SMS, dare you... :)

    Well to be fair DC (I just bought it as a backup plan...paranoid now about PCARS lol) is a very good game. They've fixed 99% of its issues and it is a good sim-cade mountain road stormer.

    I'm already thinking of my first PCARS race...LMP1's and GT3's at Monza with a day/night cycle set for an hour driving a BMW Z4 GT3. :D

    Its a very good game, but not what I wanted (even burnout on PS3 is more fun to me). I was in need for some good sim action on my ps4! And so my hopes went down...
    Now I put all my faith into Pcars cause GT is years away. I don't want to get disappointed again. I just wanna race, man!

    I'd say there's zero chance of a digital version coming out at any time other than when the physical game releases.

    You get all 8 extra cars that come with the LE. I Just preordered on psn and my download queue looks exactly like the one I have on steam, 3 packs: Game, preorder bonus, limited edition

    I wish SONY would get its act together and put a proper description up then, because it still only lists the 3 preorder cars, nothing about the LE & I don't want to preorder until I'm sure the LE is included as well. I'm a bit sceptical now about the release date being accurate too. There still hasn't been any official release date mentioned & PSN is still the only place quoting 7 May as far as I know.

    So is this date backed up by SMS themselves? I was in GAME earlier picking up Hardline and I asked about PCars. They said 'May'. No date set according to those guys. PSN pricing seems low too, i wonder if that's retail? £44.99

    Doesn't really matter. The LE ins't available on amazon.de anymore.
    And where did you get that "10 bucks more" stuff from? I pre-ordered the LE for €79,99 and the standard version is €62,99 right now, so it's closer to "20 bucks more".

    I think you got lost in my wording, so allow me to reiterate. :)

    I hope buying a digital copy of PCARS isn't the only way americans can access the LE car pack, because I would much rather buy a physical copy of the game. It's also not cool to lock away popular cars like the F1 or M1 with an exclusive DLC scheme, especially when it's unclear if they'll be available to everyone else as standard DLC later.

    But hey, at least there aren't any damned "unicorns" requiring you to join in some fan community thing during a specific period of time, just for a chance to earn an access code for cars that are already in the game and appear as AI opponents...
    Thanks, but I still have longer to wait before I can even preorder the Wii U version.
    My "entertainment stand" is an old computer desk, and I can reach all four consoles from my chair. :p Two of them reside on one of those sliding keyboard/mouse trays, which is actually pretty nifty.

    Software content in the boxed LE version is exactly the same as preordering digital on any platform. Steel Case and Behind the Scenes Booklet are exclusive to the boxed version ofc.

    Thank you @blowfishrulez. Same goes for normal boxed version? The preorder cars and modded car pack is in too, if I preorder for 62,99€?! Thought I have to get the LE to get the M1 pro car and the others...

    Again, any news on the booklet? How many pages? Sorry to ask again but it wasn't answered yet... I think. :)

    The normal boxed version will only have the modified car pack (Ariel Atom Mugen, RUF CTR3 SMS-R, Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster) as a bonus, should one choose to preoder this. It is all clearly listed on http://www.projectcarsgame.com/preorder.html.

    Look and content of the Behind-the-scenes book has not been revealed and will probably remain a surprise until release.

    By not committing to a specific release date gives them the flexibility to move the date if needed, there probably hopeful for a release in May, but the date could move again.

    Considering that PSN store (and from what they're saying the Xbone store too) have it up now...I think it's almost safe to say it will come on the 7th.
