Are the wide range of bonuses on offer from different retailers through game pre-orders just becoming too much for consumers?
I'm still stuck choosing where to go for Arkham City =/
I think the Tesco one seems good. The Joker's Carnival Map looks really cool and I'd probably go for that over just a Batman costume since the normal costume is pretty nice anyway. That's just me though. I guess that a whole extra area of gameplay might be better than just a suit. What would you prefer?
... on what the pre-order bonus will be for amazon.co.uk, and play.com, and zavvi.com, etc... Not even sure if I'll get it on day 1 though. So much DLC announced, which is pretty depressing. Might wait for a GOTY, as usual, although it releases pretty much on my birthday, so I could just ask it as a gift.
It's ridiculous that there's a lot of pre-order bonuses and store exclusives for Arkham City there's too many to keep track of and decide which one I should get. I wanted the collectors but there's no steelbook so I pass on that. There's 4 different Steelbooks and the one I'm trying to get is impossible to import because they don't deliver overseas.
Im just gonna wait for them all to be released as dlc that i can just buy
yeah. Best way to do it.
Better yet, GOTY edition with all DLC included for free
I will wait for game of the year edition
By doing this sort of stupid pre order bonus nonsense they're forcing people to look at other means of obtaining all the DLC if you catch my drift....
I feel awful for going through best buy to get some of their lame ass pre order specials but I am doing it for the $100 gift card by preordering 5. Normally I go through amazon, but I got sick of waiting out for the 10-15-20 credit for the new games. resistance 3, uncharted 3, batman, mod warfare 3, battlefield 3 its gonna be a great winter for me. :)
it is called having a choice. i like it
Best Preorder: Walmart US 1) $10 cheaper. $59.99 and not $69.99 2) $10 Ewalmart credit for their online store 3) Game of the Year Batman Arkham Asylum included. This is at least worth $20. Provide hours and hours of gaming. Way more than Joker's Carnival. Not a fan of Walmart but in this case, they win hands down.
Agree with article, but what [I think] is worse is when the developers don't ever release those exclusive DLC to XBL/PSN. At the moment, the only one I can think of is The Saboteur Knife DLC (but to be fair, the studio did close down).
