Decisions: GRID 2 has retailer-exclusive preorder bonuses

Jan 31 // Jordan Devore

Release date set for May

Codemasters has slapped a release date on GRID 2: May 28 in North America, and May 31 in Europe. This will once again be a multiplatform game, hitting up the usual PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 trio. Maybe we'll see a Wii U version next time?

The company is regrettably set up to offer individual pre-order incentives at different retailers, although this time, there's only three to pick from. (It could be worse, sadly.) Here's the breakdown for the United States:

  • GameStop has the Turbo-Charged Edition, which includes the exclusive McLaren MP4-12C GT3 Special Edition and two new routes for the Brands Hatch GP circuit.
  • Best Buy has the IndyCar Edition, including: the exclusive Dallara IndyCar and the IndyCar Pace and two new routes for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Oval Circui.
  • Amazon has the Head-Start Edition, with the exclusive Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 GT, plus discounts in the Car Upgrades Store in online game modes and a unique RaceNet bonus.

While Codemasters is hardly alone in this practice, it's still disappointing to see. Any idea which, if any, retailer you'll buy from?
