    Read the DTG announcement on facebook. Sam himself said that console users are the bulk of TSW customers. So come on DTG, do us right and offer us the same discount !!

    There's still 2 weeks, I'm sure something will happen before then. You still won't get the game any quicker!

    It most likely because of spg that they get a discount.Because they only really get 2 routes.

    Everyone is currently being offered a 10% pre order discount on Steam, regardless of ownership of TSW2020. There's an extra 5%for current owners.

    I think they will offer some kind of pre order discount for the consoles, but like other people have said it takes longer to implement on the store than steam, I didn't know they are doing a digital deluxe version with - Train Sim World® 2: East Coastway: Brighton - Eastbourne & Seaford Route.

    As ive said on my facebook group, im not particually that bothered about no pre-order, or even a discount, sure it would be nice, but i think £25 is generally a good price

    when it comes to pre-orders on console it's out of DTG's control it's up to Sony and Microsoft

    Not true. Many games on these platforms have preorders - big and small games. They also can set a preorder price discount on consoles. Some games even have a discount for the first few days it is released on console.

    Will PS4 and Xbox One get a discount like Steam? We will find out soon and hopefully that answer is yes.

    I have noticed on the pre-order information screen that the EMD GP40-2 is not on the preserved collection?. May I ask why if anyone can clarify that for me?, Maybe Sam?. Anyways it would have been nice to include the GP40-2 with Sand Patch grade in TSW 2.

    I’d really (really) be interested in purchasing this loco if DTG ever made it available as a standalone purchase for the PS4 (hint, hint DTG). Do you currently have the GP40-2 in your sim, and did you get this as a bonus loco from Steam (along with the other bonus cars)? It looks like this loco is still available from the Microsoft site as well, but I think without the bonus cars.

    It was explained by Matt to Sam that the GP40 won't make it like the AC64 because they were made in the old way as part of the NEC route. The NEC route and rolling stock made for it won't be part of the preserved collect because of this. As Matt put it, the content has too much baggage.

    I also think the price is ok as is, but for me it's about the principle. If you give a discount, it should apply to ALL customers over all platforms. Giving it to only a part of customers is discrimination

    I fully agree that everyone should get the discount, so much for DTG insisting everyone is treated equally.

    However playing Devil's Advocate, you could look at it like console users are getting more than PC users with 3 entirely new routes, in comparison with 2 plus an old rehashed one for the PC.

    So, maybe they think that £2.50 extra for consoles isn't much extra to pay for a brand new route which normally has an RRP of £24.99, that's a 90% discount in itself.

    That’s a shame but I’m not surprised, it’s very rare we get pre-order discounts, I think NTP had it.. could be wrong. I was always going to buy it anyway, £25 for three new routes is not to be sniffed at. It’s a bargain, I would have happily paid more.

    Thank you both for the clarification. But if in the future DTG has the textures for the GP40-2 and the sounds, Might they make a new one in the future?. And Stockton Rails I own TSW 2020 on Xbox and bought the GP40-2 via the original digital deluxe edition released in july 2018. I would have loved to see this as an extra train for use of sand patch grade. Maybe in the future DTG may make a new one but as it stands I think it is unlikely.

    Although those buying TSW2 on steam who don't have TSW get a 10% discount. So they're getting three routes too, but at a discounted price.

    If that is true then there should not be a discount for PC users either. Until I see an official post here on the forum or on the website, I’ll assume they are doing their level best to avoid console players being treated less favourably than PC players. Currently, some PC players have two discounts stacked on top of each other versus all console players having zero discounts. That can’t be right. That’s a double whammy smack in the chops if it remains the case.

    I myself was shocked when I heard Sam say that I thought to myself that cannot be right. I agree with that there should be a discount for console users as well.

    I guess console users will have to wait until Friday's Q&A to get a better explanation as to why there will be no discount.

    I was under the impression he said no preorder, as opposed to no discount...

    Two completely different things.

    Not having a preorder isn't a major thing, but not having a discount is really wrong. It should be all or nothing. But once again silence from DTG on the forum. This should have been answered and put to bed by now...

    Yep i agree, im sure it was no pre order, apposed to no discount, this should be answered already, if it was answered now, it will stop both streams getting spammed with, why is, or why isnt etc.

    Just to re-itterate my view, yes some sort of discount would be nice, but im sure im not going to miss an extra £3-£5

    I’d be disappointed if console players don’t get a discount like PC Players. There has to be fair and level playing field. That said, my £24.99 is still burning a hole in my pocket.

    Yeah for me I'm lucky that I can get it free as I have earned loads of points by GAME so the day before it comes out I'm gonna get a gift card worth £25 for the xbox store and then buy the game that way

    I think a lot of us agree with you. The discount is nice from a financial point of view, but it won't stop us buying.

    It's more the principle that either all platforms have a discount or no platforms have a discount. I still have faith that there will be a discount and we will find out on Friday, however it's a little disappointing that they couldn't have done a quick update on their forum or via Dovetail Live.

    Yes i agree, everybody should be equal, i mean that was the new 'direction' they were taking, when it came to DLC release time etc, i dont really see why consoles user have to wait untill friday, when a quick clarification message on the forums somewhere is just as good. Unless there is still final details to be confirmed on this, i dont see any point in having to wait untill friday.

    Im still buying it regardless of price, as a brit, yeah sure the LU is appealing, but SPG is my first go to upon release

    I think as a console player that we like to be treated equally with the pc guys. No pre order isn't a major thing but some kind of token gesture towards this group of players would be nice. Guess we will just have to see what happens.

    It's been confirmed on discord that pre-order will not be coming to consoles. However no news on the discount until tomorrow's stream.

    I still can't fathom why they won't just release this information timely and officially...

    If you order TSW2 from inside the TSW2020 store ie the store in the game NOT the Playstation store you get the discount.

    Also, the first 100 buyers get a free pair of Matthew's eared headphones.*

    * full disclosure - I made that bit up.
