    The BEST way to increase pre-orders is to allow play a GT6 DEMO before, so if PD does that they will have millions of pre-orders ! :)

    • Jun. 24, 6:58pm

      Like the E3 DEMO avalaible now. :)

    • Jun. 24, 6:59pm

      PD can take my money if they do that.

    • Jun. 24, 7:03pm

      It will be magnificent if it will a demo with Pikes Peak and the Sebastian Loeb’s 208 T16 car. Even if it’s a minigame with some cars… we will pay for that.

    • Jun. 24, 7:24pm
      SZRT Ice

      There will be a demo on July 2nd on PSN. It’s called GTAcademy 2013.

    • Jun. 24, 8:02pm

      Yes i know :p but the E3 DEMO is a much bigger demo with 20 cars (not only Nissans) and 4 or 5 tracks…

    • Jun. 24, 8:07pm
      SZRT Ice

      True. To be honest, I wish GTAcademy expanded outside of Nissans. It’s taking over Gran Turismo. It may soon be called Nissan Turismo. J/k, but diversity keeps things interesting. It’s good to mix it up.

      Kaz should have a raffle and there should be a new ________ GT Academy each year.
      Mercedes GT Academy
      Ferrari GT Academy
      Lamborghini GT Academy

      I said it 1st…

    • Jun. 24, 8:28pm

      Well, at this rate, we might be looking at a Toyota GT Academy considering how much work PD has done with Toyota on the GT86.

    • Jun. 24, 9:15pm

      @srzt you din’t i was saying this only 2 articals ago..and a long time before that a few times…infact

    • Jun. 24, 10:41pm
      SZRT Ice

      Oh… Oh well! :-)
      Atleast I’m not alone in wanting this idea to come to fruition!

    • Jun. 24, 10:46pm

      I hate to burst your bubble SZRT Ice, but Nissan sponsors GT Academy. That means that they shell out a lot of money so that people like you and me can compete for an exclusive opportunity to become a REAL racing driver. In exchange for all that money, they have their cars used as the test models for GT Academy. And when whoever goes to Silverstone arrives, they will be competing mostly in Nissan cars. I’m sure that if Toyota, Ford, Dodge and other companies who compete in GT3 class wanted to sponsor an academy of their own, they would shell out the money and get their own GT academy swathed in all of that respective motor companies’ automotive goodness. As a result, that company would probably see an increased presence in GT as a whole. But unless you want GT academy and other such good opportunities for people to have a real chance at a racing career, I suggest you don’t complain about Nissan’s generous contributions to the Gran Turismo series.

      “But unless you want GT academy and other such good opportunities for people to have a real chance at a racing career, I suggest you don’t complain about Nissan’s generous contributions to the Gran Turismo series.”

      Whoa there bud… WHAT I WAS ASKING FOR is actually some MORE OPPORTUNITIES for people to become real world racers. GTAcademy automatically makes you “Team Nissan”. However, Gran Turismo has been a sim that caters to all levels of motorsport since it’s initial introduction on PS1.

      I was suggesting something that could add to the GT culture, NOT TAKE AWAY FROM IT. Other GT Academies could even run simultaneously! It wouldn’t necessarily have to equal a replacement! No need to look for the negative in a statement that was meant to be entirely positive man.

    • Jun. 24, 11:20pm

      The Nissan web site. not the UK though….offers the academy as a official race recruitment program for Nissan….its not hard to imagine other manufacturers wanting in on this kind of thing. especial as the latest model Reconstruction goes.. who knows in the future big deals will need to be made..considering the ready made audience there is and the product placement campaign package is the best all round add format for any car manufacturer.. its a new and ultimate way to sell cars get with it…bubble burst’ers….

    • Jun. 25, 1:06am
      SZRT Ice

      Thank you bift’!!! YOU GET IT!!! It could even branch out to Drift/D1 Academy, Drag Racing Academy, or even a WRC Academy.

  2. Jun. 24, 6:46pm

    Wonder if the “special visual & performance enhancements” will be of any benefit. Or if they will be obtainable through progress in the game as with the cars.

  3. Jun. 24, 6:45pm

    Hold on…in GT5 you couldn’t purchase anything higher then your actual current level.

    So how is having these cars from the start something you can drive? Unless they took that feature off. (Which really wasnt a feature). More like restriction.

    I cry BS.

    Can someone advise?

    • Jun. 24, 6:55pm

      You’ll be able to use them since level 1.

    • Jun. 24, 6:57pm

      That you can’t buy it doesn’t mean that you can’t drive it.
      If you are at lvl 12 and someone sends you a lvl 40 car, you can use it just fine.

      Maybe you get a bonus code and once activated you get tickets for the particular cars?

      GT5 had Special Pre-Order editions too, that gave early access to Special colored lightly tuned cars, that had Purchasable/unlockable version in the Game. This 1 is pretty much the samething. If you don’t pre-order it you’re only really missing out on the 1,000,000 credits from Amazon, or special paint chips, race suits, & avatar from Gamestop.

    • Jun. 24, 9:22pm

      Good, the whole level thing was meaningless BS anyway. Some of the best racers I know barely cleared Lv 30, while lots of Lv 40s drive like noobs.. of course the vice-versa was also true too, thus highlighting the meaninglessness of the level system. I would however like to see Licenses mean something again!

      @ Wanderlust2000:

      “I would however like to see Licenses mean something again!”

      Noob-proofing in a nutshell…

    • Jun. 25, 12:46am

      Lol… I just heard a bunch of folks choke on the idea of “license” requirements. I blew through the licensing phase before realizing that it wasn’t necessary in 5.

  4. Jun. 24, 6:43pm

    I won’t pre-order. Having these cars from the start is like cheating. But I wish I could. It seems this is like that golden SRT Viper in FH.

    • Jun. 24, 7:27pm
      SZRT Ice

      It’s 10% of the new cars the have to offer. But have fun with that.

    • Jun. 24, 8:11pm

      You’ll be disappointed that you didn’t seeing your friends with cars that you’ll never be able to have. Just like the signature addition cars, chrome line cars, and the edge Camero. You have to get these while you have a chance.

  5. Jun. 24, 6:40pm

    Yeah GO AHEAD and buy it.

    2 months later GT6 hands them over for free. LMFAO!

    • Jun. 24, 6:59pm

      So? The game costs the same regardless if you pre-order or not.

    • Jun. 24, 7:31pm

      And? Everyone’s paying the same price, just means people who don’t pre-order have to wait.

    • Jun. 24, 7:36pm

      “IF” you pre-order it…

    • Jun. 24, 8:10pm

      They didn’t give the chromeline and stealh cars out for free in GT5 after initial release, so who says they will with these cars?

    • Jun. 24, 8:12pm

      Yeah ok just like everybody has an edge Camero

    • Jun. 24, 8:18pm
      SZRT Ice

      Good points.

    • Jun. 25, 9:10am

      No-one in Australia had an Edge Camaro! Nor did we have the Gamestop NASCAR!

    Came here to the news again and: “UPDATE: To clear up any confusion, Ken Chan from SCEA has confirmed in multiple comments on the U.S. PlayStation Blog that all of the above cars will be available in all versions of the game. Pre-ordering simply gives you access to all of these cars from the start and makes their “special visual & performance enhancements” available to you.”

    “Fiushhhhhhhh”…now we are talking…I rather play to get the cars that are already in the game (one of the points to play it more) than getting them by doing nothing.

    Good news indeed.

  8. Jun. 24, 6:12pm

    Preordering from GameStop as soon as I go out.

    Will be the first pre-order of mine since… Super Mario Galaxy? Heck, it’s been a while.

    TRD 86 Racing… 2008?

    • Jun. 24, 6:37pm

      Think its the ae86

    • Jun. 24, 6:43pm

      I think its the 1 the raced the 24hrs of nürburgring if gazoo team. Its the team that has the lfa

  10. Jun. 24, 6:02pm

    the hackers though they were doing something special to the cars..but the hacker option is available to everyone who wants it to be not so special really…now a combination of custom paints livery… theirs more chance of being unique …
    this is what i admire about Sony and pd..the ability to see the “system” rather than the jelly beans it makes…

  11. Jun. 24, 5:47pm

    Lets just take a moment and admire the gorgeous new pictures

  12. Jun. 24, 5:38pm

    Paint chips are good….the way they work, they are collectible and trade’able…and give some sort of individuality to your car….expand on this more….livery chips!…..must work in the same vein….firstly this will allow promotional chips…i.e in Academy, or currant manufacture promotion.
    The new corvette stingray comes to mind here…it has paint chip, custom paint chip, (camouflage) also a cover chip that could be translated to custom livery chip….again collectible and trade’able…..lets not stop there…usable trade’able parts with different parameters..i.e suspension ,or even oil….why not have different oil grades….tiers with individual manufacture specifications….all this data is available within the different industry’s its about partner ships….so chips could be an important little feature…and when you see your car on photo-stream you will know its your car for sure…with more options comes more individuality. some cars in the real world are truly i unique for personalized livery chips…..with to much of a chance some one just righting (boll*ox) on the side… it wouldn’t be conducive to a real world DRIVING simulator..

    I will collect The Nissan R premium +++ version.. and collect currant suspention model parts chip…o and i just happen to be the only person with my you tube livery chip prize still unused at the same time… will all want to trade with me..and you can keep your few hundred stealth models…i got the only one like this… hypothetically of course….lol

    • Jun. 24, 6:21pm

      A custom livery editor would be much more simpler and wanted. Although I see where you are going with this, exclusivity won’t really sell it. Honestly, it would just make me a bit frustrated.

    • Jun. 24, 7:59pm

      Exclusiveness is for a few and costs money..uniqueness is for only you and every one else at the same time, and its free….its gotta be better. there is potentially going to be so much content for this game that its going to be impossible to avoid..the visual variations alone are apparent if you watch photo stream at present, no 2 photos are alike..

    • Jun. 24, 8:02pm
      SZRT Ice

      What he said. Paint chips are WACK. I’d rather create my own colors. Then I can be rest assured VERY FEW ELSE WOULD HAVE THEM. The ability to create 2 tone, carbon, metallic, matte, chrome. and gloss paints of your own desire will always take precedence over preset paints no matter how many there are. They will NEVER MATCH what can be created with a CUSTOM palette.

      And manufacture paints can be selected the same way you search for cars…
      Country>Dealer?Model>Paints Available For Make


    • Jun. 24, 8:25pm

      @szrt Ice who to say that “Custom Paints”.is not the very thing your on about.

      i like the idea you can mix your own paint color chips.. i guess you would also need to know the right mix ratios as well, to get the specific look required…as is with the real world..and a sort menu option will surly be all other sorting menu’s have been with the looks of it..

    • Jun. 25, 2:16am

      Paint Chips – GOOD
      Full Spectrum Palette – BETTER
      Carbon/Body Colour Hood – GOOD
      Ability to Paint Hood & Trunk Lids Any Colour – BETTER
      Gifting Stuff – GOOD
      Selling/Trading Stuff – BETTER
      Putting Race Numbers on Race Modified Cars – GOOD
      Putting Race Numbers on ALL Cars – BETTER
      Changing Race Numbers on Some Cars – GOOD
      Changing Race Numbers on ALL Cars – BETTER
      Having a Bad Head Cold – NOT GOOD

  13. Jun. 24, 5:37pm

    Omg omg omg SRT VIPER!!!

  14. Jun. 24, 5:33pm

    I have been hoping they would add a mustang gt500 sence I got gt5 so all this means is I need to get gt6 now.

  15. Jun. 24, 5:22pm

    …well this is not fair, if those cars are pre-order only (and I don’t see why they wouldn’t be since PD decided so already), we who live in countries that cannot pre-order from, and especially from GameStop are like… huh… this isn’t right, at least give us opportunity to buy it as DLC…

    So what is with all these cars:
    BMW Z4 GT3 2011
    Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 2013
    Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) 2014
    Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance 2013
    Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale 2011
    Alpine A110 1600S 1968
    Aston Martin V12 Vantage 2010
    Audi R8 LMS ultra 2012
    Ford Focus ST 2013
    Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 2013
    Honda HSV-010 (SUPER GT) 2011
    Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 2011
    Lexus IS F Racing Concept 2008
    Lotus Europa (type54) 1968
    Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 2011
    Renault Sport Megane Trophy V6 2011
    SRT Viper GTS 2013
    TRD 86 Racing 2008
    Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 Race Car 2008

    …we ain’t gonna see them cause we cannot pre-order on GameSpot?!?!?!?!?

    • Jun. 24, 5:27pm

      No, no, no… they are special edition versions of them cars, like the Chrome Line and Stealth cars, so they will be in game, but only the normal versions.

    • Jun. 24, 5:27pm
      Lord Protector

      They are gonna be available in a standard game edition too, don’t worry.

    • Jun. 24, 5:59pm

      You won’t have to do anything to earn them. They will be unlocked immediately.
      And it’s GameStop bro’… GameSpot is a gaming website.

    • Jun. 24, 6:01pm

      It was confirmed on the US Playstation Blog by Ken Chan that those cars are in the regular game for everyone and that the preorder ones are simply “Anniversary Edition” versions of them, as con360 said they’re simply like the Chrome Line / Stealth cars were in GT5.

      So it’s all good :).

  16. Jun. 24, 5:13pm

    Dat gt500 and focus ST…. Also the viper gts , man these excites me, knowing those cars confirmed for gt6, didnt care much about the anniversary edition

  17. Jun. 24, 5:13pm

    Paint chip being back doesn’t mean no livery editor. Think of painting your car in GT5 and then once you’ve chosen the car colour u can slap stickers on it.

  18. Jun. 24, 5:08pm

    Paint chips? PAINT CHIPS?!!

  19. Jun. 24, 5:07pm

    Scirocco GT24?

    Okay. That is too much teasing. That car I admire like hell, surprised for its inclusion, but oh my God. I cannot comprehend this list.

    Must preorder.

  20. Jun. 24, 4:55pm

    Nice. A premium Lotus Europa.

  21. Jun. 24, 4:51pm
    i love gt5

    Pretty bad.

  22. Jun. 24, 4:48pm

    Well.. any chances of getting a livery editor are gone (paint chips are back)

  23. Jun. 24, 4:42pm

    I was wondering if new viper would come to gt6 all I need are new Ferraris

    • Jun. 24, 4:48pm
      SZRT Ice

      And the Veneno, La Ferrari, Apollo, Agera, CCXR, Murcielago, RGT, New Ruf RGT, RT12, New Ruf CTR2, Diablo SV/GT, Ferrari F50, Ascari A10, Vector M12, Ford GT90, Ausi RS5, RS4, SL65 AMG Black Series, and about 50 GTR more Skyline/GTR variations… Just to name a few.


  24. Jun. 24, 4:32pm

    SRT Viper! Yes!!!
    Also, nice to see the paint chips have returned… not.

  25. Jun. 24, 4:15pm


    PD put Pagani Huayra, Ferrai FF, Ferrari F12, Lamb Diablo, Lamb Aventador, Lamb Sesto Elemento, BMW M6, and other good cars in game plase

    • Jun. 24, 4:42pm
      SZRT Ice

      I think you mean Reventon, as the Aventador is already listed, and has been availeble since the 2nd car pack DLC for GT5.

    Renault Sport Megane Trophy 2011…very beautiful race car…

    • Jun. 24, 4:35pm

    • Jun. 24, 4:58pm

      Yeah…one of my wishlist!

    • Jun. 24, 5:33pm

      That vs the scirocco = <3 as an under class on the nurburgring

  27. Jun. 24, 4:06pm

    srt viper and the gt500 are pretty awesome
    I still can’t believe I’m going to race the c7 (tuned if possible) vs 2013 viper

  28. Jun. 24, 4:02pm

    So the preorder cars can be bought normally in the game, but not the custom visuals?

    • Jun. 24, 4:21pm

      No. There available to everyone but if u preorder u get them straight away rather then buying the game, building credits and then buying the upgrades.

    • Jun. 24, 4:39pm

      Which makes me wonder exactly how much customization is available for each car. This is something I wanted more of in GT5 – the ability to race modify premium cars.

  29. Jun. 24, 4:02pm

    + Ken Chan on June 24th, 2013 at 9:49 am said:

    “…We will have detailed visuals of the custom livery within the pre-order line-up of cars very soon”

  30. Jun. 24, 3:58pm

    Finally the Shelby gt500! After driving one in real life I wanted it to be I’m gran turismo so bad. Only a wish but maybe the Shelby 1000? Or the gt500 super snake that would be great.

  31. Jun. 24, 3:50pm

    so the paint chips confirm no livery editor? :(

    • Jun. 24, 3:53pm

      Not really.

      Maybe just no custom colours.

  32. Jun. 24, 3:47pm

    Ordered through the GTPlanet link. I wonder when they will announce a collector’s edition though? Maybe GamesCom?

    I’m always into JDM but I’m happy that the Trio will finally be complete GT500, Camaro, and Challenger! :D I hope there will be new RUF’s if not, Porsches! Come on Kaz, make the Bmw M3 E46, Supra Rz, All 240 SX, 240 Z and many more to mention Premium please :)

    We’re off to a decent start with the vehicles and these visual “enhancements” have peaked my interest. Though the return of paint chips is bittersweet, I’m curious as to them being “my own cistomized paint chips”? Are they pre-customized? Or are they “CUSTOMIZABLE”? And if so…, to what degree? Ugh… Every detail just brings more questions. However, it’s looking good so far…

  40. Jun. 24, 3:02pm

    I used GameStop for pre order of the game and PS4. I’ve never gotten any pre order for any game. I always played the game and got the prizes as I went along.

    Well BF3/4 changed that for me. As well as seeing some of the stealth cars and special features that came by way of special ordering GT5.

    So this time and with the release on the PS4 I’m going for it. LOL

    Like the cars…. Can’t wait for it to come out! I do hope we can change the color/number on the Z4. (like the RM/TC cars)

  44. Jun. 24, 2:54pm

    “Pre-ordering simply gives you access to all of these cars from the start and makes their “special visual & performance enhancements” available to you.”

    Interesting…. What does available to you mean?

    • Jun. 24, 3:14pm

      I’m assuming it means that anyone who pre-orders it gets it first, kinda like a timed exclusive.

    • Jun. 24, 4:28pm

      I’m guessing they will be in your garage at the start OR will be free the first time.

  45. Jun. 24, 2:47pm

    Whats the point in doing the clubman cup with a Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 car ?

    • Jun. 24, 2:56pm

      Since theres going to be car classes, maybe that will restrict you from using it?

    • Jun. 24, 3:08pm

      Who’s forcing you to use that car?

    • Jun. 24, 3:15pm

      Where exactly does it say you have to? Seems like you jumping to conclusions quite early there.

    • Jun. 24, 3:42pm

      “Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our core fans that enjoy unlocking cars + upgrades. The 15th Anniversary is meant for a celebration with the fans, giving you unique GT designed vehicles to race online. It doesn’t effect your single player experience at all since racing license are still required, and most of the cars exceed the entry level races” – Ken Chan

      There are still restrictions in using the cars depending on the race. So no you cannot use the SLS AMG GT3 in the Clubman Cup. Also seems like you will need certain licenses to use these cars, though it doesn’t mention if levels will be required in order to drive them.

  46. Jun. 24, 2:47pm

    Using the BMW Z4 GT3 as an example, I hope my Z4 GT3 can have a different number and paint job (Other Than the Light Blue, Dark Blue and Red BMW “M Sport” Colors) than just white.

    If different liveries for each racing car come as paint chips that is fine by me.

    I think the paint chips and musem cards saturate your disk drive and eventually slow your access time to a crawl.
    So I hate both. But I can edit that stuff by way of deletion……..I think……….????????????

    • Jun. 24, 2:51pm

      You couldn’t delete the Museum cards in GT5…I tried, hard.

  47. Jun. 24, 2:45pm

    Why can’t they go back to where you actually had to play the game to unlock things?

    Now you get 20 free cars just by pre-ordering?!?! 1 mill credits in-game?!?!

    Well, I am getting the game anyway, but starting from scratch with nothing is always more fun. :)

    • Jun. 24, 3:17pm

      Or you could just, you know, NOT pre-order those versions. It isn’t the end of the world.

  48. Jun. 24, 2:40pm

    2013 SRT VIPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Jun. 24, 2:37pm

    We’ll these cars still at least be availble in the dealerships even if we don’t preorder the game? Please don’t tell me no..

    • Jun. 24, 2:39pm

      Nevermind, disregard that above post. I didn’t read the entire article!

  50. Jun. 24, 2:33pm

    My preorder has been set for some time, nice to know what I will have to start with lol

  51. Jun. 24, 2:29pm

    Thank the gods. I was about to rant that this wouldn’t be available in all versions but then I read the rest. Anyway, I’ll see if I can pre-order this.

    On a side note. The SRT Viper is confirmed then!!! And the Aventador is now in-game. Thanks PD.

    On another note, paint chips seem to be back then. Oh well, the paint chip system kinda sucks, but it’s not at all terrible.

    • Jun. 24, 2:43pm

      I kind of like the paint chip system and I’d rather have just the paint chip system than just a color wheel.

      A lot of the time, I want to paint a car in one of the actual manufacturer paint jobs, and with a color wheel, it’s not easy to get it right. With the paint chips, it’s about as accurate as possible.

      I’d like to see paint chips and a color wheel however. Plus I want to be able to paint more than just the body color.

    • Jun. 24, 2:44pm

      I’ve actually gotten used to the paint chips thanks to the standard cars, but will be nice when you earn one, you get to keep it forever or even purchase one through some paint thingy for 50cr (if there were one). xD

      But I’m super happy the SRT Viper, Ford Focus ST ’13 and the rest of the new cars are coming in GT6. :)

  52. Jun. 24, 2:26pm

    So which is bette? Pre-order from GameStop or Amazon?

    • Jun. 24, 3:31pm

      If you’d rather earn your cars, don’t preorder at all. All of the cars mentioned are earnable normally, but the preorders give you instant access. If you want the most cars, go with GameStop obviously.

    • Jun. 24, 3:52pm

      If you’d rather earn your cars, save your pre-order code and give it to someone (or sell it if you’re inclined that way).

  53. Jun. 24, 2:26pm

    I’m surely going to pre-order GT6 but i’ll wait a little bit more just to see if it’s coming out on PS4. Although i wouldn’t mind having to play it only on PS3.

    • Jun. 24, 2:49pm

      You will be waiting for quite a while if you want this on PS4…

    • Jun. 24, 3:28pm

      Probably, but if there are no announcements regarding the “GT6 on PS4” thing within, let’s say, the next 5 months, i’ll pre-order it for PS3, anyway, i think we’ll see more details before that time.

  54. Jun. 24, 2:19pm

    There’s a lot of reflection on those cars for being in a white room :p

    • Jun. 24, 3:10pm

      PD to note from people saying forza looks better due to the over done reflections..
      iv been to countless conventions and forza’s cars look like they had some super shine paint on..
      gt5’s got it almost right, ALMOST

  55. Jun. 24, 2:15pm

    I’m pre orderin this….

  56. Jun. 24, 2:09pm

    Are we getting all these cars in the standard GT6 as well?
    I dont care about having them early in the game.

    • Jun. 24, 2:17pm

      Yes, the only difference if you pre-order the game is that you’ll have them from the start and will be able to use their special visual and performance enhancements.

  57. Jun. 24, 2:08pm
    MOV Games

    Really? I’m sure that 1 million and all those cars basically ruin all the fun of the game. God I hate pre order crap.

    Its nice that we have all these cars in the game anyway, but if they don’t have any upgrades unless you pre order, its a hell of a let down.

    • Jun. 24, 2:23pm

      You could save the codes for later.

  58. Jun. 24, 2:07pm

    Paint chips? What do you mean paint chips? This better not be the same as GT5. The whole paint chips thing is extremely annoying. As though you’d have millions of dollars to spend on upgrades but not left to custom paint your car. Limit the number of colors if you must, but not the availablity. I know this is trivial, but why PD?

    • Jun. 24, 2:44pm

      Paint chips are good. how else can you replicate authentic manufacturer paint jobs?

      But they should add a color wheel too

    • Jun. 24, 3:11pm

      Why not both….

  59. Jun. 24, 2:07pm

    Livery will come as chips!!! its logical i said 2 years ago..

    • Jun. 24, 2:09pm

      Who thinks there will be a livery chip editor?

    • Jun. 24, 10:46pm
      SZRT Ice

      :-/ It’s better than nothing I guess…

  60. Jun. 24, 2:05pm

    Just incase you lot were wondering, paint chips are back: “the Gamestop-Exclusive 15th Anniversary Edition includes 16 additional cars as well as your own customized paint chips, race suit, helmet, PSN Avatar, and a copy of Beyond the Apex II app.”


    • Jun. 24, 2:08pm

      +1 that bums me out too if we going to have “use once only” paint chips

    • Jun. 24, 2:25pm

      Well, hopefully these will just be some special colours like chromes, but every other colour we can make at free will (yeah right!) like gloss and metallic.

  61. Jun. 24, 2:03pm

    That cover art is a bit boring to be honest. I don’t care about that if the game will be good.

    • Jun. 24, 2:07pm

      I think thats just a placeholder

  62. Jun. 24, 2:02pm

    What visual differences are we talking about? Stealth options or chrome line options for the cars? I need to know before ordering..

    • Jun. 24, 2:09pm

      That volkswagen race car :o

  63. Jun. 24, 1:54pm

    New Viper just for pre ordering, awesome!

  64. Jun. 24, 1:52pm

    I’m waiting till they announce the collectors editions to pre order.

    • Jun. 24, 3:45pm

      Yeah, I’m waiting for that as well. Hopefully they will release the info regarding the collectors edition soon.

  65. Jun. 24, 1:51pm

    I tell you what. If they put the Viper GTS-R in as well I am going to have a seriously good Christmas, even better than it’s already looking!

  66. Jun. 24, 1:46pm

    Already pre-ordered it from Amazon but I hate the extra million at the start of the game. I can buy a car that makes the first 50 races into a complete joke. I guess I’ll have to exercise some self-control and pretend I don’t have that extra money.

    • Jun. 24, 2:48pm

      If you don’t want the million pound bonus don’t buy from Amazon. According to the US PS BLOG Most of the bonus cars are in too high a class to qualify for beginner races and if you still want the challenge don’t use the bonus cars in a-spec/career mode. You can just bring them out online.

      Hopefully the 20 bonus car liveries will be exactly the same and available in all markets (i’m UK based)

      The appearance of paint chips and these unique liveries is worrying as it sounds suspiciously like there won’t be a livery editor which if true would be a big disappointment to me.

      Still, I’m looking forward to the game, particularly the revised track creation options. I hope there is a big improvement on GT5 with regard to that. The GPS option could be great if we can also play scenery items in the same way as Mod Nation Racers which is THE slickest and best designed track creator I have ever seen.

    2013 Focus ST!!!
    2013 Shelby GT500!!!
    2013 SRT Viper!!!
    2008 TRD 86!!!
    2008 Scirocco GT24!!!

    I’m having a crisis!!!!!!

  68. Jun. 24, 1:45pm

    I was going to say! (following on from the update)

    The way GT6 has been previewed, it looked to me that these cars were in the game as standard, this post made them suddenly look like ‘DLC’

    I’m pleased it’s been cleared up, so effectively pre ordering gives you the visual and performance upgrades for these cars from the off

  69. Jun. 24, 1:38pm

    has there been any word about GT6 being available as a download on PSN as well besides on a physical disk?

    • Jun. 24, 2:16pm

      good question but no word…a suspect Gt6 will be playable on PS4 at that point it might be..

  70. Jun. 24, 1:37pm

    I bought a special edition of GT5 which came with the Chrome Line cars, and actually I didn’t enjoy having access to the cars. Knowing that I had a Lambo and things capable of winning races without even trying… so from now on, no special editions for me ): I’ll happily start at the bottom.

  71. Jun. 24, 1:34pm

    Ouaaaaw!!! These cars!!!

  72. Jun. 24, 1:33pm

    What exactly is this Apex II app? And why do I “need” it?

    • Jun. 24, 1:58pm

      Beyond the Apex 2 app I beleive is the digital copy of the Beyond the Apex handbook that was supplied with the Signature edition back in 2010. This is the same kind of thing that was released in Japan during the 15th Aniversary celebration.

    • Jun. 24, 2:00pm

      “Apex II, a brand new updated version of the Apex game guide”

      from the EU Blog. Its an updated version of what I said above.

    • Jun. 24, 3:00pm

      Ya I saw that shortly after posting this. Thanks :tup:

  73. Jun. 24, 1:28pm

    GRRR I have to pre-order this!! I want that edition but HOLY the SRT Viper is in the game. YES!! :D

  74. Jun. 24, 1:25pm

    Will the gamestop pre order bonuses be available on their UK Website?

  75. Jun. 24, 1:20pm

    From what I can see, the Gamestop bonus lets you start with the cars rather than buying them – I think the exclusivity of the bonus is to do with the other items. PD aren’t a perfect company, but they’re not EA.

  76. Jun. 24, 1:19pm
    Ittybitty Stigy

    So if I already Pre-ordered the regular GT6 will it automatically upgrade the the 15th anaversary edition or do I have to cancel my Pre-order and then Pre-order the 15th one?

    • Jun. 24, 1:23pm

      No need to cancel. As long as u pre-order, you can get the upgrade

    • Jun. 24, 1:26pm
      Ittybitty Stigy

      Alright thanks, just making sure.

  77. Jun. 24, 1:16pm

    Do they ship to Canada?

    • Jun. 24, 2:09pm

      Wondering this too..

  78. Jun. 24, 1:13pm


    • Jun. 24, 1:20pm


  79. Jun. 24, 1:11pm

    I refuse to buy anything from Gamestop. but so far Gamestop has the best pre-order… really hope the collectors edition/15th anniversary edition will include the Gamestop pre-orders as well

  80. Jun. 24, 1:09pm

    Viper baby!!!!!!

  81. Jun. 24, 1:07pm

    Ford Shelby GT 500 2013!!!
    Viper SRT GTS 2013!!!

    NICE stuff :)

  82. Jun. 24, 1:07pm

    Pre-Ordered @ GS! I wonder what exculsives Best Buy will have?

    This order comes with the Apex II app, I wonder if there is a PDF of the book to DL too?


    • Jun. 24, 1:24pm

      From what I saw on Best Buys website they don’t have any pre order bonus

  83. Jun. 24, 1:04pm

    Youre own customised paint chip? I dont like the way the words Paint and Chip have been mentioned on GT6

    • Jun. 24, 1:04pm


  84. Jun. 24, 1:01pm

    So…if I get any other Gran Turismo 6 version…without the “pre-order” thing…will those cars be in the game for me to get by actually playing the game? Or just as DLC? Because if it is only by this way…I´ll get really mad…

    • Jun. 24, 1:05pm

      must agree with you. This is more than stupid behavior.

      DLCs are destroying games.

    • Jun. 24, 1:09pm

      After some consideration i think that these 4 cars will just be in your garage for “free” (you dont have to win them in events).

      So no interest, i would rather win them in game (if AI gets better :) )

    • Jun. 24, 1:21pm

      It said they would each have their own unique upgrades, so I’m guessing these are just the regular ones that are available in-game, but with performance modifications to them.

    • Jun. 24, 1:28pm

      DLC is not destroying the game! It’s the REGIONAL DLC that is destroying the game!!

      I live in Australia and we couldn’t get the stealth cars without an English account! Nor could we get the Edge Camaro – AT ALL!!!

      It’s bad enough we get charged $3 more for DLC than anywhere else in the world, so why do we have to miss out on other stuff as well? :(


    • Jun. 24, 1:34pm

      I wouldn’t get too mad yet. We don’t know how our gt5 garages are going to be affected. Since gt6 and gt5 are on the same console.

    • Jun. 24, 1:46pm

      heinz57, I would be surprised if it were anything more than a custom paint job.

  85. Jun. 24, 1:01pm

    This is beyond stupid!

  86. Jun. 24, 1:00pm

    I will be pre ordering asap. Literally woke up this morning and wondering why there hasn’t been a pre order bonus yet.

  87. Jun. 24, 12:54pm

    As a collector who likes to collect everything in a game, I have to say that I really hate this kind of things. “Pre-order here, get this” and “pre-order there, get that”, “USA gets this, Europe gets that”, come on. I just want to buy the game at the release day and be able to collect everything. Is it that difficult? I’m so p*ss off with this and the DLCs policies that I really might just not buy GT6 (or any other game as it is). I miss the old days.

  88. Jun. 24, 12:54pm

    fuc****** im from Portugal :(

    • Jun. 24, 12:54pm

      Me too

    • Jun. 24, 1:09pm

      Me too. And the game is going to cost us a small fortune, so there is no budget to pay for the shipping cost of buyint it from those retaillers. Shame on you PD, shame on you!

  89. Jun. 24, 12:52pm

    I love when PD actually are doing what others are doing . ones again GRID2 also promised a car/Track pack for the pre ordered copy – I won’t spend one single daim, before it’s released and reviewed properly :O)

    Thanks But No thanks Pd.. My money stays in the pocket as long as they can :P

  90. Jun. 24, 12:51pm

    wow nice cars….but if i dont buy this edition…the cars came in the normal game ( no edition) ??

    • Jun. 24, 1:03pm

      I was thinking that, if all those games are going to be coming as DLC I wont be happy, especially if theyre ready to go on release. I dont like being made to feel like a mug

    • Jun. 24, 1:05pm

      from what it looks like the cars you get from the pre-orders are cars that are in the game but have unique attributes.

    • Jun. 24, 1:08pm

      I worry for the same reason as you, my friend. The whole point of GT is to realistically drive cars that you wouldn’t get to in real life. Really, you do expect the game to come with the majority of different and unusual cars. I hope they come to us soon without the mandatory DLC. This sounds cheeky.

  91. Jun. 24, 12:51pm
    SVT Cobra GT

    To quote Mr. Mercury “I want it all and I want it now”

    I hope there’s something for us European players!

  92. Jun. 24, 12:48pm

    I need Lotus Exege S V6 series!!!

  93. Jun. 24, 12:47pm

    Wait, does this mean the Z4 is not in the normal edition?

    • Jun. 24, 1:10pm

      I’m hoping it just give them the cars instead of working to buy them in game. If it means theyre getting early DLC then I’m not going to be a happy customer

  94. Jun. 24, 12:47pm

    So, does the 4-pack means these cars will [b]only[/b] be available as a pre-order bonus? It’d be pretty low since they’ve been teasing us with them until now.

    • Jun. 24, 12:53pm

      ^This! I want to know aswell

  95. Jun. 24, 12:46pm

    Pre-ordered via Amazon … GT-6 here we come.

    Huaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…. Speechless!!!

    • Jun. 24, 12:49pm

      Ouch… i take it back my speechless..LOL :p …i thought it would be released soon… but it’s end of the year LOL. I’ll just buy the full version then :p

  97. Jun. 24, 12:45pm

    SRT Viper!

  98. Jun. 24, 12:45pm

    I WANT IT NOW!!!!!!!!

  99. Jun. 24, 12:45pm

    I’ll just unlock these cars while im making progress playing the game, no thanks.

    • Jun. 24, 1:11pm

      I hope the game will work like that.
