I can't find it in the Steam store yet. It really depends on what it'll cost whether I'll pre-order: I've been waiting for years, but if its too expensive (especially with the cable that's not included on Steam) I will have to postpone my purchase a little further.

I know the DVD-version is currently on sale for €45 online, so Steam'd need to be around €30-€35 to make it worth it.

Do you know if people that didn't pre order from Steam or Amazon will get a beta key or bonuses? I pre-ordered from Best Buy with a discount and I don't want to cancel it.

Do the pre-order bonuses apply for Rocksmith PC in the US?
