Ok, everyone, I thought I'd try to bring this thread back, because it was a huge help to me when I was looking to pre-order games, only thing is I'm going to need some help keeping it updated. A few issues I've got: I'm currently deployed, so I'm only really tracking games that I care about... no idea what's coming out outside of those. I've also forgotten stores other than BBY, GS, and Amazon. So, if I can get help, we're good, otherwise this thread will die.
The idea is to list the pre-order bonuses associated with certain stores.
These aren't really deals, but I know that sometimes, bonuses were what swayed me to one store over another, so thought I'd help others with the same.

Credit - DLC - Physical Bonus

If you want help, why don't you make your post a wiki? That way anyone can edit it.

Edit: Double posted but here's Fear 3:

Amazon will give away a 12-page F.E.A.R. 3 comic written by Steve Niles, illustrated by Stefano Raffaele, and produced by DC Comics. The comic is a prequel to the game in which its hero has "escaped an explosive blast he set in motion to eliminate Alma and is confronted with a brand new threat and a new escape mission."

For its preorder bonus, Best Buy will give away exclusive access to an in-game weapon, The Shredder, which shoots heavy metal shot rounds mixed with nitrates. "Perfect for knocking extremely fast targets, there's nothing better when you're between a rock and a hard place with multiple hostiles rapidly advancing," the developer comments.

GameStop will reward early reservations with exclusive access to another in-game weapon, the Hammer, which is designed to have a greater stopping power than the standard issue sidearm, what with its .50 caliber rounds. Day 1 Studios says this gun will be particularly valuable in F.E.A.R. 3 multiplayer sessions.

Thanks for this thread, should be helpful! I have a bunch of Bestbuy credit so I'm going to use that 5 for $100 bonus deal, though I might try and get some other games so this will help decide. Oh pre-order bonuses how I love and hate you ha. After a year they should just sell the items for a couple bucks (wishful thinking I know...)

Thanks for this thread, very helpful!

I'm a little disappointed in the supposed Gamestop exclusivity of the Dead Island DLC. I understand you can buy it after launch, but still. In my opinion, if content is completed, everyone who supports the company by buying the game on release should get access to it. Alas, that's clearly too much to ask :roll:

Good thread. Probably go with the retailer who has physical bonuses since DLC will hopefully be available eventually to everyone to purchase.

Thank's OP for starting the thread.... I'm tired of no one updating the Amazon deals thread and it's nice to have someone take it on whom will manage it. I also like the fact you put the dates +1!

You should put something to differentiate games/stores with physical pre order bonuses

Hey, everyone, thanks for the support on this, like imacgod said tracking these things is a huge drag. I know that the predecessor to this thread helped me out big time back when it was around, there are stores out there that I'd never think of that offered some pre-order incentives which were pretty cool. It's a wiki-thread now, so everyone can pitch in on this, a helpful hand or two will be greatly appreciated.

You should put something to differentiate games/stores with physical pre order bonuses


I'll look into this, not really sure how, maybe a color code?

Thanks for this thread, should be helpful! I have a bunch of Bestbuy credit so I'm going to use that 5 for $100 bonus deal, though I might try and get some other games so this will help decide. Oh pre-order bonuses how I love and hate you ha. After a year they should just sell the items for a couple bucks (wishful thinking I know...)


Be careful, and read this before you jump on it, sometimes BB doesn't have deals work if you use GCs/credit.

can you only buy online to get the pre order bonuses from bestbuy, or can you pre order in store as well?


You should get it if you pre-order in store as well, they use to have little cardboard things that detailed what you get if you PO in store.

Thanks for the thread and for your service to our country, Scorpius.


No problem, I just do what I do!

With Gamestop when you pre-order the UC3 CE, you get the pre-order bonus from the standard edition. Anyone know if Amazon's is the same? I like Amazon's bonuses better, and it seems like they'll have a credit deal, but...

Yes, you'll still get the in-game bonuses with the CE. Normally, though, even if Amazon offers a credit deal on the standard edition it doesn't carry to the CE, which really does suck.
