Everyone is on pins and needles anticipating the announcement of a 2009 launch date for Gran Turismo 5 , but not everyone enjoys the uber-simulated racing feel.
Some may be interested in the more accessible Blur and if so, you should know that Activision has announced the pre-order incentives for the game that retailers have scheduled for release on November 3. These retail-exclusive incentives are big these days. If you decide to drop your five bucks down at GameStop, you'll receive an "Exclusive Multiplayer Advantage Booster Kit," which nets you a Ford Bronco (um, yippee?), a "Double Fans" bonus for the first 10 multiplayer races, and an exclusive "Last Man Standing" multiplayer survival mode. Not a bad deal, right? But maybe you're more intrigued by Game Crazy's offering, which is double cash for the first three single-layer races. Pre-ordering at Best Buy will get you a code to unlock the Dodge Hennessey Viper that, for all intents and purposes, sounds more appealing than the Bronco. But that extra mode you have access to if you pre-order from GameStop sounds a bit more appealing to us… Once again, it's up to you; which incentives will coerce you into a pre-order?
No, it's not GT5 but then again, it isn't necessarily supposed to be. We think the game looks decent and we're definitely hoping for a fast, entertaining racer for the holiday rush.
