Those fucks should give me the STCC free, not the lucky bastards who got the addon only.

That's for the people that got hosed by the pricing mix up.  There is a post on RSC about it.

As the other thread about purchase via Steam is a little bit overcrowded, I will post this in a new thread:

You may have noticed that the price on Steam has gone down after the release, form 36$ to 30$ for the RACE07+GTR Evolution bundle. Even if the 36$ price was supposed to include a 10% discount during the pre-purchase period.

So all those that have pre-purchased it before September 1st have in fact payed more instead of less as it was supposed to be.

To correct this situation, Valve (and SimBin I suppose) have posted the following:



I guess they are referring to STCC, as that is supposed to be the next expansion pack, or additional tracks and cars that will be out this year.

I hope everyone. or most of those who have payed the higher 36$ price during the pre-purchase period will found this arrangement satisfactory. It's a fair deal. I think that the overwhelming majority of those who pre-ordered GTR Evolution are already "regular customers" who would have bought STCC anyway.

Gotta wait and see if I actually get it. And if so I sort of have a guy who wants it, but then you are second on the list if the case occurs m8.
And as it is free, I take no money for it.

I will let you know when I know, ok m8?

i get the feeling Simbin have forgotten about this  lol rofl rofl


considering their stance not long ago about Piracy and the extraction of their new content being used in older games and stuff ......to me they have in this case actually advanced this process by doing a very limited release of the game   the new tracks and the game itself are well and truly on the "black" market  and who can blame people when all they are after is the new tracks why pay for something that's old already :?:  i would imagine sales of this will be dreadful compared to what they should have been what with the cock-up with the last release and the "promise" of free to GTR-E pre order folks the rest of their fans will already have most of the content  via other means  :think:

very disappointing of who ever has decided on this release strategy and the most stupid move in the wrong direction i say  :(

Yep, same thing for me.  I must say I'm quite happy about that.  But I agree with what Jarkko said above.

I got this for free as well?  I thought it was for those who paid over the odds when pre-purchasing; i spent almost bugger all on GTRE (i'm pleased to say!) Fired it up, and some of the tracks look good.  Not driven it yet, but the price was certainly right!

Me too, I went in to buy it on-line only to find that it was sitting there waiting for me to complete the download. So I put the credit card back in it's holster, and gladly accepted my gift.  :)

Yep mine was waiting for me yesterday. I had fun tearing around in the Camaro.

I'm not sure why but I cant use any of the STCC content in Race Event??(Launching thru STCC) I can only use them in Time Trial/Practice. All the tracks are available but not the cars...

That is awesome Ricky!

I downloaded the games a few days ago, but I have yet to try it. I did get the demo and it wasn't bad.
