Pre-Order Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and participating retailers such as Amazon are throwing in a code which will get you the original XBLA version of Banjo-Kazooie for free and let you download it two weeks before the widespread release.

Perhaps even better news is that Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (and Viva Pinata 2) carries an MSRP of $39.99. You can find the official press release here.

Damn, all of these good pre-order bonuses at the same time. I don't know about this yet. I may just put down th $5 to get the game cheap, then try to cancel it later. That doesn't always work though.

the amazing thing is the game is $40! I'm hoping its good. I am still recovering from Alone in the Dark syndrome. Symptoms = severe disappointment and anger at wasted money.

Thanks OP -- I was intending to purchase BK when it was released on Live. This will make getting Nuts & Bolts that much easier!

At some point, I believe so. I think this code is only for the first one though.

I bought some points specifically for banjo so now it looks like Ill be able to use them for something else. Hopefully best buy does these pre orders.

Hopefully some no tax + free shipping site will have it. Just canceled my Newegg order for it since it's known to be MSRP now and I doubt they'll have the codes (they didn't for Fable 2).

Who would have thought that an exclusive N64 game would be an XBLA game?

I hope Best Buy gets in on this since I have a giftcard there. If not I'll go to Gamestop. Man, first coming out at 40 bucks and now a free code for the first Banjo. This is awesome!!

Awesome, awesome, awesome deal.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Welp, I'm definitely pre-ordering N&B now. But not from Amazon if I don't have to; I hate mail-ordering games.

Oh man, they totally got me with this bonus. I can't wait to play B-K on XBLA! I'm going to wait until Amazon mentions it before pre-ordering, but it's on my list.
