Imagine if your favorite movie had a Special Edition featuring an additional scene only accessible at Walmart. That's exactly what Sony's proposing with its release of Beyond: Two Souls. By pre-ordering the game at GameStop, you'll get an automatic upgrade to the Special Edition, which includes an exclusive playable scene.
So, what is this scene? "Training missions."
The Special Edition includes the "Advanced Experiments" scene. The thirty minute sequence will "test your rapid problem-solving skills as you guide Jodie and the mysterious entity Aiden through a series of tough training missions," the PlayStation.Blog details.
So, it's disposable content. While it will make for a nice bonus, it doesn't seem like you're missing anything vital to the game's story. There are other reasons to pick up the Special Edition, however. It comes in a steelbook case, and includes the soundtrack and four exclusive making-of videos. You'll also get a PS3 dynamic theme and PSN avatar bundle.
