The watch is the same one as seen in the game and has the Aksys logo.

For those who don't know anything about the game, you can view a trailer below, in which you can see the watch.

Or, play the game demo: http://www.aksysgames.com/999/

I wish they showed some actual gameplay in that video. It looks like it could be cool, but it's not clear what the game actually is.

That was a pretty good damn demo. I am really thinking of getting this now, I don't know about the watch though as I will never wear that thing in public.

Combine the pre-order of the game with the promo of, if it's still going on, "pre-order any $29.99+ game and get a used game 50% off" is pretty good for people who want this game.

On a tangent, I recently just signed up for the new GS Powerup Rewards card today, but sucks that I can't use it on online purchases right now. It would have been nice.

I have decided I am retarded because I couldn't figure out what numbers unlock the 2 briefcases. I thought it would be "7463," but that's not it.

I have heard a lot of good about this game and have been very interested in it. I will definitely have to try the demo. The watch is kind of cool, for any collector it seems like it would look nice in a collection... I guess you could wear it too :D

This watch will go great with the badass shades I got free from Pizza Hut in the early 90s.

That is actually a pretty sweet preorder bonus item compared to what you usually get these days.

That watch is actually pretty cool.

The demo was cool as well. There's a good chance I may grab this come November.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

The demo was pretty good, I might have to preorder this game. Took me forever to figure out that a closet was in the room, looked different.

Edit: Online only preorder bonus?! :( Just going to wait for this to hit $20 or less then.

If it makes you feel any better, I too thought it was 7463. And to think, I used to be a rocket scientist....

It was challenging to look at the scraps of paper at an angle. The simulation of playing a real DS was pretty neat, but I really wanted to rotate that pic of the ship. It would have helped if I was holding the DS in my hand and could simply rotate the DS. I suppose I could have rotated my head. But I was already leaning forward at my desk, as my monitor is set back a little.

Upshot is atleast you know youll get the bonus item. Lamestops around me always "ran out" of pre order items unless you were there like within a couple hours of the stuff coming in. Id seen employees give away bonus items to their friends or other customers that asked if they could have them.

Never had that problem, except the fiasco with Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. The Wii version got a soundtrack disc, while the PSP/PS2 versions got nothing unless there were left-overs from the Wii preorders.

Learned the hard way that gamestop will sometimes take back an advertised bonus due to failed agreements between gamestop and game companies/promotors.

I never got a soundtrack disc for preordering the PS2 version, besides nothing until now has interested me preorder bonus wise.

This is a nice bonus for a game I am actually interested in getting on release day. I don't have a credit/debit card so online is out of the question.

Yeah, the briefcase trick got to me too! I kept entering the code that was posted on the first page. Just had to look at it a little more. I loved Shadowgate, Hotel Dusk, Trace Memory, and other point-and-click styled games.
