gamrfeed: There are many different reasons why we pre-order videogames. One of the most common is bonus content, physical or digital, be it limited edition night vision goggles or even something as small as an alternate character outfit. It’s imperative you pre-order if you want a special/collector’s edition of a highly sought after game, or risk the chance of missing out. Then there are times when the standard edition (GTAIV springs to mind) is in short supply. Another good reason is double points for loyalty card holders; over time retailers recognize your history and send you bonus promotions and extra points. Lastly, whenever pre-ordering online, there is always the chance you’ll receive the game a day or two early.
