All Pre Order Goodies are YMMV


Original Post

I thought we should have a thread to post about any pre-order bonus', since I always seem to miss out on these 'freebies' that I wish I had.

It's confusing when these preorders actually come in since retailers can never tell you when their stock will arrive.


I was especially interested in the LEGO Batman keychain minifigs, Fable 2 XBLA Gambling game, and the Kratos Sack-boy and would like to know when they finally (if ever) come to us Canadians.

The only notable preorder bonus EbGames have right now is the Spore Creature Creator that I already have.


So anyone else see any preorder goodies around?

Yep. I pre-ordered it yesterday at EB. It's listed as "Vesperia CE" so look under V not T. SKU is 6148407.

Bastard, I read over your entire list, and actually wanted some stuff that I don't think we got. Then I hit:

Also, I am located in the US, and Do Not ship outside of the US.

From my experience, Canadian EBs suck for actually giving out preorder bonuses. The last thing I can recall getting is the GTAIV code when I picked up that game (and I'm not sure if that was a preorder bonus or just a launch-day bonus).

The only other thing I got was some sort of fantasy football code with Madden 07.

Unless I preorder all the wrong games, I haven't gotten a bonus with anything else in the last couple of years.

um with the fable preorder can you preorder get the code and then not get the game down the line? (move the money elsewhere?)

Cause I wouldn't mind getting a free XBLA game and then picking up fable2 at a 2 for 40 or something.

My EB called yesterday to let me know my EndWar beta code was in, and code for Too Human armor packs was in. I have both preordered for 360. They are expected to get the fable pub games code on 8/15 but their dates are not always reliable.

I asked my Gamestop about the Fable 2 preorders, and they told me they knew about them... they just didn't have them in yet. I'll go back in a week or so and see if they have them then.

I did get a free soundtrack CD for Fallout 3... but it's pretty much useless, as it only has 5 songs. It was free though...

Totally agreed. A couple EB's here never give out any promo stuff, then when it piles up too high in the back room, they put out a bin with a "FREE" sign on it and give it all away.

I'm pretty happy with that, though. I got two Kratos action figures from the last time.

Can anyone confirm if the EB Games in Toronto (preferably West end) have the codes for Fable 2?

I called and the girl just gave me a blank silence.

Also they still owe me that Clank action figure from the Secret Agent Clank preorder!!!

Lucky, the only thing my EB gives out for free are the posters. Everything else I rarely see them give out. I would have died if I saw those Kratos figures for free.

Yes, this is what I was looking for. Now I need to go preorder Star Wars.

I assumed this being in the Canadian board was enough, but you know what happens when you assume.

Hmm I may just do the Trade-3 for this.

Does anyone know if the Star Wars pre-order only applies to the 360/PS3 versions?

I'm really hoping that we'll see the LittleBigPlanet pre-order bonuses (they have multiple bonuses available, and you pick which one you want when you order) and well as the Mirror's Edge tote. I'll cry if we don't see these bonuses. Literally. Tears will be shed. Metaphorical tears.

I did a trade 3 for Too Human a while ago and they didn't say anything about the armor packs. Does anyone know if the will armor actually be any good?

I set aside 1 starwars stormtrooper for each person that pre-ordered so far at my store regardless of which system it was for and each person that pre-orders after that will get one until my quantitys are gone of figures. i try to get the warehouse to send me more as im running low again.

the store that you ordered too human from may have those armor codes now. We got ours in on tuesday along with the endwar beta keys. call them and ask if they arrived. if they have not called you to let you know your pre-order items have arrived then you should take it up with the manager and get them to do it. the sooner you pick them up and get them out of the system the sooner they will receive more. This is why ive already had 2 shipments of star wars figures because i got the first batch gone and out of my inventory.

Illustrates my point. I ordered Fallout 3. I fully expect never to see this disc unless I pester them about it. I'm not torn up over it, but there have been times when I've learned after the fact I've missed out on something I probably would have liked.
