Is there still no cockpit view?

If so, that's pretty balls

Cockpit view is a relic of a bygone era.

Hopefully GMG carries it so I can get a Steam key for 25% off... All these retailers can suck it. Your super extreme exclusive bonuses will be < $5 DLC soon enough.

I wish they all did that, to be honest... Not everyone does so. there is still a pretty super awesome weapon in ME3 that I can't get because it was pre-order exclusive and they apparently meant the exclusive part.

These preorder bonuses are a bad enough kick in the nuts, but this is bordering on pay-to-win:

Yeah. Seems modest.

Ehh, bonus cars don't really interest me, there will always be an incredibly similar car in-game anyway. Unless one of the bonus cars is a car you find especially appealing, I don't see how the various deals will make any difference. If one retailer sells it for $5 less than the others, THAT'S the one that'll sell.

As for the game itself, I'm super excited over this one. I loved the original, not sure why they waited so long to make a sequel. After the death of the PGR series, I wasn't sure where I'd get a good arcade/sim hybrid. And for once, Microsoft was the one to come out and say "Remember how awesome PGR was? We ended up re-hiring a lot of its dev team, some of the DiRT guys, and made this crazy thing called Forza Horizon".

Shame Horizon won't ever come to PC, but after reading interviews on how the framerate in it stays at 30 FPS locked, it'd be a hella mess to port it. So Hooray, GRID 2!

Pretty strange that retailers accept to sell different pre-order package. What if 80% want the GT-R SpecV for example? BB & Amazon won't be happy. I wonder how all this was dealt.

I hope they are all satisfied with their particular pack.
