E3 2011 is less than two weeks away and the virtual racing community is waiting with baited breath to learn everything there is to know about Forza Motorsport 4. Today the first bit of info has possibly leaked out. According to the guys at G4, depending on where you pre-order the game will determine what type of DLC car you will be gifted with. The list goes as follows:
Amazon: Pre-order at Amazon and you will get the new Subaru WRX STi
Best Buy: Pre-order at Best Buy and you will get the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe
Game Stop: Pre-order at Game Stop and you will get the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde
Wal-Mart: Pre-order at walmart and you will get the John Cooper Works MINI Clubman
Target: Pre-order at Target to get the Honda CR-Z EX
DiRT3 is coming out next month and there are scores of Gymkhana and Rally fans waiting for its release with baited breath. Usually when a big game release is on the horizon there is some sort of “special edition” or bundle pack offered to those who really want something collectible when they pick up the game they’ve been waiting months for. It’s a common practice with popular shooter franchises like Halo and Call Of Duty. Now DiRT3 will be among that group as there will be a special bundle pack available now for pre-order in which buyers will get the game itself but also the popular Ken Block Traxxas R/C Gymkhana car. Awesome right?! The bundle pack will set you back $299 but before you scoff at the price you should know that the R/C car itself normally goes for 300 bucks. So instead of thinking of it as paying $299 a game you should see it more as buying a cool R/C car and getting a $60 game for free with it! If that wasn’t enough, pre-ordering with Game Stop will also get you several unlockable cars, tracks, and events right off the bat while the rest of the world has to earn them the legit way!
If that sounds like a good deal to you then head over to Game Stop and pre-order the bundle right now for Xbox 360 or PS3 before they run out.
