Console owners can get a preorder bonus for placing an order prior to launch. If you preorder at Best Buy, you’ll receive a free digital $10 Best Buy gift card when the game ships. It works on both the standard edition and the deluxe edition, though the deluxe edition for PS5 is currently sold out.
