I did a search and didn't see anything posted.

EB- Right now you can preorder Dead or Alive Ultimate plus get 1 of 4 trading cards, a DOAU wall scroll, and a free 3 month subscription to XBL, for $54.99.

LINK: www.ebgames.com/ebx/product/236112.asp

GameStop- Comes with exclusive Kasumi figure, special LE dual case with a disk in each box, 2 trading cards, and a 2 month free trial for XBL.

LINK by CapAmerica: www.gamestop.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=B210410A

IGN store has a free overnight shipping code combinable with all game preorders. Has Gamestop's bonuses (since it is runned by GameStop).

CODE: IGNLABOR

LINK: I can't get the damn link to work for this, so you're on your own.

That's plenty of choices. :wink:

They must really be starving for preorders.

Of course, I can see why. $54.99. Blah.

Hey, considering the 3-month-XBL subscription is $18 retail for itself, I don't think it's that bad of a deal at all (not to mention the wall scroll would probably be cool...depending on which characters are on it ;) ). Definatly better than picking it up the day it's released for $50 and not getting a wall scroll, 3 month XBL subscription, or trading card.

That's a better deal if you don't need the XBL subscription. You won't get the bonus items untill the game ships from either stores, so that kind of hurts the deal for me. Still, nice freebies that come with this game and it looks to be a nice fighter. :)

I wonder if I should cave into one of these pre-orders or hold off for a better deal or lower price at release. Any advice?

Maybe Cheapy can work his magic and get us $40 right before it gets released, like he did for Fable. :D

Is this in store also? I would like to get both the scroll and the Kasumi figure, if they were available in store, I could put a reservation in both stores, and once I got the extra stuff, I can roll the reservations towards something else.

EB has in-store pickup (don't know about GS), but you won't be able to get the freebies untill you pick up the game, so I'm not sure if that would work.

The Trading Cards and Special Limited Edition Dual Case with one disk in each box are supposed to be in all of the First Editions of DOAU like the lenticular cards were with DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

EB doesn't mention it, but you could be right. I'm not exactly sure.

Thanks CapAmerica for the shipping codes.

It was mentioned on the Tecmo DOA forums a while back about the extra goodies for the first pressing of the game. Unless anything has changed it was not store specific. It is supposed to come in a box similar to the GTA Double Pack.

Okay so regardless of where you order from you get the dual case and the cards. You just have to choose between the wall scroll or the figurine, correct?

Oh and a correction, the EBGames deal only has a 2 month Live subscription with it, not 3.

Plus you also get 2 cards from both places, NOT 1 from EB and 2 from Gamestop.

It clearly says on the page that you get a 3 month subscription card to XBL and it says you get 1 of 4 cards. You were reading off the IGN or GameStop deal, I'm assuming.

The code works at EB. I just put it in and I didn't have any trouble.

On my last post, I sorta screwed up on the he/she thing. :lol:

I do think that he/she just mixed up the websites. I don't have a clue how, but it could happen.
