The NEW Pre-Order Bonuses Thread

I think I got everything fixed (for the most part). For some reason the spoiler tag for Saints Row IV in the PS3 section isn't working right, but oh well. I'll probably get the PS4 and XBONE sections added tomorrow. I really can't decide if I should add a PC section, so I started a poll. Vote yes if you want the PC section added or no if you don't care. I also added Target to the Madden 25 list (Thanks MSUHitman).

thanks for your hard work

Are there ever any pre-order bonuses for Nintendo games? Pokemon X/Y in particular. There doesn't seem to be anything now, but I'm wondering if such things will show up later. One of my kids is saving up to pre-order (one or the other) and he'd read that Gamestop was going to have a pre-order bonus pokemon or something, but I see no evidence of that at Gamestop.com.

Maybe there should be a multiplatform section to save a lot of space as most games will be on 360/ps3, xbox1/ps4, or all and receive the bonuses

it wouldnt suprise me one way or the other but what he did see was an announcement for new event pokemon at gamestop through october which also includes a preorder pitch(which is likely what got him confused)

Target has reservation cards for these, you put $1 down, and get a $5 gift card when you pick it up.  I haven't seen any in-game bonuses and nothing for Gamestop in particular.  I remember them trying to use the Pokemon they give out free over Wi-Fi as pre-order incentives for other games, but in reality, you didn't have to pre-order to get them.

 

Also, the Vita listing for Dragon's Crown seems like it is still off.  It's showing some kind of machine gun, I think from the Killzone pre-order?

Some gamestops are just handing them out with preorders. It seems like many places got more than they have preorders, so this will be a VERY common artbook. With that said, I am disappointed with it. It seems to have that cheap ink we saw on the Demon Souls CE guidebook (but it has a gloss on it), since I've only had it for a few hours and it has a bunch of wear. The pages are also the same quality of the Demon Souls guidebook. Overall it feels pretty cheap, but it's a fair size / decent artwork. Would have been nice to at least have every enemy in the game. =\ 

 

It doesn't sound like it's worth getting the game Day 1 for that pre-order bonus artbook.

 

Guess I'll just wait for Dragon's Crown to get cheaper, and probably get that Killer is Dead LE instead.

I seem to be in the minority, but the one thing I can assure you is that the art book will have a plentiful supply.

Hopefully Amazon will have some leftover for a sale on the game.

 

But if not, it's all good. I'll just wait for UDON to maybe bring over all the Vanillaware artbooks one day or import it myself if I end up loving the game that much.

I went yesterday and they had a stack of at least 4, so I wouldn't worry.

GS is giving away posters for pre-orders of GTA5 (if your store still has them in stock, I guess).

that's what I said.. why repeat the game 4 times for 4 different platforms, just put everything under 1 game.

To the OP I really like how you organized all the pre-orders for the games and its much easier to find. Hopefully you update the list soon by adding more games and the new consoles that come out this holiday :D

Well my store only got 5 copies of the game with 2 preorders, one of which was canceled after reviews came out, and only 4 artbooks.

Gamestop also adds Steve Young and Jerry Rice to the franchise/ULT pack as a seperate code if you're a free/paid PUR member. If not PUR then all you get is Walsh, Debartolo, and Montana.

You don't consider a nearly 1:1 ratio with first run copies plentiful?

Not sure if we're counting these as pre-order bonuses, but technically they are bonuses:

 

- Gamestop - BF4: code for Air Shortcut DLC in BF3

- Gamestop - CoD Ghosts: code for personalization pack in BO2

I just noticed that both Gamestop and Amazon are sold out of the bonus art book for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5. It looks like they're only taking orders for the standard edition now.

Do you think they'll bump up standard orders to the limited at this point? I might have to order from Best Buy since I forgot about this one.
