Pre-order exclusives? Of course there are pre-order exclusives for this Fall’s ‘best of Bond’ game- 007 Legends.
Before we even get into that though, remember that whoever you buy from, you’ll be getting a post launch bonus with a downloadable level based on the new Bond film Skyfall. That’s pretty cool as it is, but it has nothing to do with pre-orders. And on that front…
I have only pre-ordered a game once in the past five years and that was for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus from Uprising's bonus. I don't generally pre-order because that means an upfront deposit. I like paying and getting the game at the same time, if that makes any sense.
I don't mind preordering when there are physical rewards involved – makes it collectible.
So with that in mind, I won't be preordering this 😛
I'm pretty much the same as you Matt, the only difference is if there's a piece of DLC that (even though it might not be that great) actually means something to me- like G1 Optimus Prime in Fall of Cybertron.
My only other pre-order was The Wind Waker which came with the OOT/Master Quest GCN games at the point of pre-order.
