Gran Turismo PSP Pre-order deal. Or is it?

It looks like Sony is going to offer some sort of pre-order deal for folks that order/reserve Gran Turismo (PSP).

Pre-order Gran Turismo, and you’ll get a voucher that will add one of the top cars to your in-game collection of cars in an exclusive color. This means that on day one, you’ll be able to smoke your friends in 4-player Ad Hoc Mode multiplayer races with one of these rare sports cars while they are just getting started saving up credits.

This begs several questions. The article mentions several different cars including 1974 Lamborghini Countach LP400. Does this mean you get a different car depending on where you pre-order? If yes, I hate that sort of crap. What about digital distribution? Do PSP Go owners get hosed?

I am not sure what the sell through ratio will be for this game, but I imagine that there will be lots and lots of online users racing with one of these exclusive cars. Have at it cowboys!

There was one interesting comment about digital pre-orders …

Hopefully you guys have something special for those of us purchasing the PSPgo and buying the PSN version. Right?

Yes. For those who are planning to purchase Gran Turismo from the PlayStation Network as a download, we will be able to share our plans for you shortly, but rest assured you are not forgotten.

In other words, they do not really have a clue how this is going to work. Oops.
