Anyone know how Best Buy does their pre-order special? i.e. when does the skin get emailed to you?

Do I have to pick up the game a certain time frame to ensure I get the skin?

Has anyone preordered from Newegg before? Curious to know if the game arrives on or close to release date.

Was just reading online about BF3, and it looks like there will be retailer specific bonus DLC when you pre-order. But, the developers have already confirmed that it will be a time-based bonus, after which it will be available on the marketplace.

My point being, for those of you hell-bent on getting all four pre-order Gears skins, just save your money, and sit back and relax, as this is another developer for a MAJOR title confirming that pre-order DLC WILL become available later on.

Like you said thats Battlefield. I hope they are timed based. I hate when devolpers do this shit. With Batman every skin looked cool but I had to pre-order at BB just for Robin so my only hope is that all those costumes do indeed become dlc a week after the game comes out or some time around that area.

Maybe this has already been answered before but I was not able to find it:

I have pre-ordered the Standar Ed. with Savage Grenadier Bonus. How will that be delivered? Email or within the box? If in the box, should I take the wrapper off ? (gifting the game & thinking of selling the code :))

Also will it be delivered on release day?


Please let me know. Thanks

Doubt it will be a week. Mortal Kombat's skins were released two months after the street date. My guess is that the Gears skins will be released about a month later, but it all depends on the contracts that Epic/MS have with each of the retailers regarding how long the skins are exclusive.

You have to look at it from the retailers perspective. There's no such thing as store loyalty anymore, its all about price. The developers often dont even care who gets what skins. Its really the retailers that push for this kind of stuff as each of them want to make sure they can attract enough customers based on what exclusives they can offer. Once that time period ends, the developers then get a chance to make money on the backend by offering the exclusives to the general public.

WalMart does not offer Release Date Delivery shipping like Amazon does, nor do they offer Pick Up at Store last time I checked anyway. No one knows how the code will be delivered yet, some have speculated in the case/plastic wrapping.

I actually doubt that they will release a character skins pack. Usually 3rd party titles do that, but rarely do you see Microsoft Games put out a game with preorder dlc on the marketplace.

I could've sworn one of the Epic guys said they don't want people selling DLC, so they will release them through the marketplace.

I want to know the same thing. I have decided to buy the epic edition at best buy. The only option is to ship the damn thing. i wanted to pick it up that day, so can i go into bestbuy and reserve the epic edition so i can get the pre order skin?

This used to be true. But, the model of using retailer specific DLC is fairly new. As I said, with price out of the equation, retailers need an ability to distinguish themselves from their competition.

Once all the hype ends, the developers will jump in and look for more ways to make money. Epic and Microsoft would be stupid not to release the skins later on. Simple business strategy.

Incidentally, Epic IS a third-party studio, they partner with Microsoft.

Walmart DID have RDD for Gears. It costs $1.97. I ordered yesterday for a friend. But, they have a policy where they dont offer it once it is within three business days of release date as they cant guarantee that it will ship in time.

RDD should be the same as standard shipping. Did your order offer/show/guarantee release date delivery? If not, you might be waiting a couple of days. :cry:
