Did a search and couldn't find anything. Stopped by GS this morning and was told that they are offering a free upgrade to the collector's edition of New Super Mario Bros Wii when you pre-order the game. I asked what was in the collector's edition and all they knew was that there was supposed to be some additional characters. Hope someone finds this useful.
I'm not sure I buy this until we get confirmation from an ad or an employee. Nintendo's done bonuses, but almost always in the form of swag or (in a few cases) a bonus disc. They'd be one of the last companies that I'd imagine giving in to GameStop's growing content monopoly. I could be wrong...but on the other hand, random GameStop employees aren't exactly the most reliable source.
I am hoping they're wrong; this kind of exclusive is fucking bullshit. Making content
exclusive to one retailer for a very short period of time means that the vast majority of gamers will miss out on it. Of course, this is assuming your GameStop gets enough copies of the bonus for everyone who preorders, or that the employees won't take the codes themselves or hand them out to their friends.
But I digress.
Its a Wii game, I will wait for it to be $19.99 bargain bin in a few weeks.
And Collectors Edition with DLC as the "value" collectible item means it has practically zero value.
Remember all the Victims who paid $80 for the Street Fighter 4 collectors Edition, and GS sold it new for $20 plus even the collectors edition had to pay extra for the Secondary costumes.
When did GameStop sell the collector's edition of the game new for $20? I specifically remember that it wasn't
included in the sale a few weeks ago.
That said, the first sentence of your post shows you're an idiot anyway. mikejenks speaks the truth.
