Many PSP owners, despite being able to more easily purchase games from the PlayStation Store, still choose to buy their UMD titles at a retailer. Now Sony is offering an incentive to get PSP owners to choose the PS Store over retail.

Many retailers offer exclusive pre-order extras, which lures consumers into buying from them. Now Sony has a similar solution for the PlayStation Store. Starting tomorrow, anyone who purchases Gran Turismo from the PlayStation Store, gets a free in-game car. So if you weren’t sure where to pick your copy of Gran Turismo, the PS Store is the only place you’ll get the 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V in Metallic Blue.

Hopefully Sony offers more incentives like this in the future. Doing so will make purchasing from the PS Store, that much more enticing.
