Pre-Order Incentives – Where Do We Draw The Line?

Pixel Gate UK writes:

''The concept of pre-order content for video games has become a hot topic in recent weeks. From access to betas to ‘exclusive’ missions, the whole idea is starting to expand beyond a few nifty extras. What started out as physical freebies promised by retailers has grown in content from games being cut purely to be given away as a pre-order ‘bonus’. What started as s harmless practice has grown into worrying trend, but the consumer is partly to blame.'' (Alien: Isolation, Destiny, Industry)

I don't think this trend is going to end anytime soon.

As long as people will be buying it, they won't stop doing it. Simple as that.
