From IGN Boards via GAF:
"If you preordered MGS4, there is a bonus disc that includes a code for entering the MGO beta and a few special features. Call your local Gamestop. According to this post, they should be getting them in about now."
It actually began a while ago but ok.
Dammit I called just now and they haven't unpacked as yet. ill be bugging those annoying Eb guys every day now
It looks like MGS4 will sell 1 million games in the first day after all
on my way to Gamestop right now
and they don't have any info on any of the beta details. they didn't even know there was a beta coming next month. does anyone know if only certain Gamestops have this promotion or will we just get our beta details in the mail? i put $20 on it anyway, so i'll be bugging them every few days or so until i find out something. i'm just wondering if i need to tranfer my preorder to another store or what.
i have to run down to gamestop and preorder right now!! (later today anyway) i hope they give it to me lol
They better have mine soon.
Does anyone know if eb/gamestop are the only chains getting this bonus dvd? I have mine pre ordered at gamecrazy.
i also preordered mgs4 at gamecrazy last friday. the guy at the desk didnt give me the package so i asked about it. he said he heard about it and they will get it whenever it is available to them. but do i have to go get it when they have it? will it be mailed to me? do i have to call? will they call me?
im a former gamecrazy employee and ill tell ur ight now u have to go personally and get ur stuff becuase they wont call u at all for preorder material. also if u seene thing that says special preorder stuff u have to ask for it becuase those people that work there arent the brightest cookies and will forget. also they like to hog everything. i have 45 dmc4 beenies and 3 lost odessy preorder bonuses becuase my coworkers forgot to give them out. so bug the mess outta them becuase u wont get it ne other way
just got mines in the bronx here in nyc i also pre-order the special ed version .
wait so this is true? you got the bonus disk
*calls* Lets see if these losers have battle- I mean my MGS4 pre order disc
EU too ? or is it NA ? tell me plzzzz :O
they havent called me yet....maybe ill call them today.
I wonder what the deal is if you pre-ordered it online...:(
I preordered online too. I hope we will not get screwed!
If you read the fine print from eb it says bonus disc will ship with game.
so that means online orders get screwed for the beta entry.
I know that...what I wanna know is: The game doesn't come out until June, so for people who ordered it online, they can't call their local Gamestop to attempt to pick up their discs before the beta starts. Also, who knows if some people are trying to get into the beta without actually purchasing the game online since they dont have to fork over $10...they can always pre-order it, and maybe they'll ship the disc separately for the beta code, then someone can cancel their pre-order (for whatever dumb reason). Anyways, I guess I'll call customer service...no rush though, the beta doesn't come out for another few weeks
just got off the phone with the gamestop HQ and they said that the codes have not been finalized yet and have not shiped? im going to be pissed if i dont get this!!
i'm thinking about gamespot, what is the process? thanks
It couldn't be easier, you just walk in and say you want to pre-order MGS4. Be for warned that most people that work there tend to not know about specials they are running, so you may have to remind them about the special.
If you read carefully you can make out April 17th as the start of the download program.
What about us in Europe!
what about us europeans
you guys do know the beta dosent start till like april 15 or something.? or did i miss something. if we get the code we can play today? cause if it is then ill go to gamestop right now! lol
Beta begins April 17th, but don't expect supplies to last. edit: ahh, I see what's going on here. P.S. Halo blows.
wtf? i have a ps3 also , you know. not everyone is a ignorant fanboy like you.
halo blows wtf kinda fanboy bs is that?
Not everyone on the planet likes Halo. More people dislike it than like it, guaranteed. Don't call him a fanboy for not liking Halo 3, because if you go into your local game store, you will see tons traded in. You might be able to sweet talk an employee into giving you the phone number of everyone that trades in Halo 3 so you can call them fanboys too.
Halo 3 does suck btw.
Since when did halo become totally synonyms with a console? Anyhow if you truly have a ps3, and you're not full of bs then my bad, but if not then you know where to stick it.
I just called in the gamestop i pre-ordered from. they didnt recieve it yet, but they said all i need is to bring in my reciept and id get it. I pre-ordered in march before the new announcements were made..cannot wait!
what about europe? I have mgs3 pre ordered for ages from play.com! also ChrisGTR1. You don't have a PS3 to play mgs4 shoo
I think EU gets their beta later...JPN had there's already, NA's beta is in April, and then EU gets it afterwards
They said they didn't know anything about it, like always -_- But they said if I preordered it then I'll get in for sure :]
Anybody know if there's anywhere online you can do the pre-order/get in the beta? I don't have any of the major game retailers in my area.
they said they don't have it and "wait until it comes closer to launch date" lol
That's what they told me ... She said "2 weeks before launch date" What the hell? I swear, if I don't get this Beta key, I'll be pissed. This is my first time ever pre-ordering a game. Apparantly the people getting their MGS Saga DVD's are getting them from their GameCrazy pre-orders. I hate gamestop/Ebgames, argh. I wish there was a GC close to me.
i just pre-ordered and they told me Canada MIGHT get the LE version but maybe not :( looks like i'll have to import it and pay the extra $25 on top of the retail price. :(
ahhh screw it im leaving Europe stupid ass continent getting EVERYTHING last
So this counts for EB (Canada) Too? Because some smart ass who worked there told me it wasn't coming. Then again he was wearing a X-box 360 Shirt. I'm kidding...but he really was....
He never said only LE MGS4 will get it, so people who just reserved the regular version, can also get it?
i just called my local gamestop and they told me"u get the beta disc when the game come out.
ok that fine i guess, only the beta starts in april not june i told them
he said that news to us.
wow i think he was talking about the starter kit. i told him Beta in april
I NEED TO KNOW IF GAMECRAZY GETS THIS AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!! DO THEY GET THE PROMO DVD AND BETA KEY BUNDLE PACK THINGY??!?!?!??! HAS ANYONE HERE PREORDERED FROM THERE AND HAS RECEIVED IT OR KNOWS IF THEY WILL GET IT???!?!?!?!?!?!?!
go to gamecrazy, they have it.
I just got home from Game Crazy and I pre-ordered the game and they gave me the dvd and the beta code is inside. it runs from 4/17-5/5. I just watched the dvd and its way awesome.
YOURE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!! + FEEDBACK
Oh man, oh man. I better get mine.
I called my Gamestop (Canada) and they told me they still had not recieved it but that once they did (they confirmed to me they will get it) because they are in limited quantities they would call people who pre-ordered based on who pre-ordered first.
To be honest this is the first game I've pre-ordered and I placed it on Valentine's Day so I'm not sure if I'll get it.
WTF is up with this? I called my GameCrazy and they said that they don't receive the promo DVD and beta package until the week of the release of MGS4. Why the hell are they saying that I am getting the beta code after the beta will already have been completed?
