No Man’s Sky digital pre-order is now live on the official PlayStation Store. The game can be pre-ordered digitally before launch to get access to some of the pre-order bonus. Surprisingly, the pre-order bonus appears to be different for North American and European PlayStation Store.

No Man’s Sky is currently available for pre-order on the EU PlayStation Store and offers the following pre-order bonuses.

Upgraded Alpha Vector Ship
Your ship is your transport to the stars. Begin your epic voyage with this Alpha Vector attack ship. It’s upgraded with lasers for protection and a hyperdrive that allows you to jump to the nearest solar systems right from the very beginning.

10,000 unit starting boost
Your journey will be filled with danger but 10,000 units will give you a head start in your race to the center of the universe. Use your units to buy faster ships and better weapons, or purchase exotic resources.

PS4 Dynamic Theme
Immerse yourself in the world of No Man’s Sky with this unique PlayStation®4 system theme.

This might look like a great incentive to pre-order the game but the situation is completely different if you pre-order it from the North American PlayStation Store. You will get the following pre-order bonus.

– Bundle of 10 Avatars
– (MISTY PLANET AVATAR, FANTASY ATLAS AVATAR, SHIP ARCHES AVATAR, TREE HORSE AVATAR, SHIP REFLECTION AVATAR, ATLAS AVATAR, SHIP AVATAR, SHIP IN SPACE AVATAR, SPACE ATLAS AVATAR, THE TRAVELLER AVATAR)

It is a strange difference between both stores because the pre-order bonus is usually the same. In the case here though, it appears that pre-ordering it from the EU PlayStation Store offers the better deal here.

No Man’s Sky will launch on June 21st for the PS4 and PC.

    I got the upgraded alpha vector ship and 10,000 currency with my order on ps store as well as the avatars here in North America

    I feel the opposite way. My EU bonus sucks compared to the US one :/
    I’d much rather have those beautiful avatars than some in-game bonus I’ll get from playing the game after 30 minutes… I hate those bonuses. Progressing in a game is (at least supposed to be) fun, and not an obstacle I want to pay for having removed from my game.

    A $60 Indie Game, that no one knows what it’s about.

    And, extremely awful bonus pre-order content.

      Who told you this is an indie game? The developer made indie titles in the past, but this is a full AAA release.

      • Honja

        …What?? “Indies” aren’t a genre of games… An indie game is a game (any game) developed by an independent studio. What, do you think a studio loses it’s independence as soon as they choose to develop something more ambitious than a 2D sidescroller?
