Just randomly went to EA's website and they had an offer for a free Homer Ball from "select retailers". Clicking the picture took me to GS:

I'm gonna call the store and see if they're doing this down there since shipping sucks, if not, there is always the SAVER coupon.

Nice!
The site also mentions "an exclusive Bartman poster inside specially marked packages"
Poster actual size 11 x 17 inches. Homerball actual size 4.5 inches tall.

Going to reserve my copy tomorrow

It's apparently his super power in the game. He can fart and roll around...

I'd go with the Wii version "just because." Doubt the controls could be that bad...

And BTW, major EWWW @ the chicken....

Sweet. Cant wait for the 360 version. Looks like the lead platform so should be the best one. Wii controls/Exclusives could be good too. I heard there might be extra minigames on the Wii version.

I'm going down later today to pre-order the X360 version since it does indeed appear to be the lead platform. May get the DS/Wii versions later depending on the reviews...

Game actually looks great!
I'll pick it up for PS3.

That is an awesome ball. :bouncy:

I can't imagine that the 360/PS3 versions will be worth the extra $20 compared to the PS2 version, but we'll have to wait and see.
