    Like the NZ offer, just went to EB Games and now the preorder offer includes all DLC:
    -G1 Optimus
    -Swoop
    -G2 Bruticus
    -Slingshock Cannon
    -Throwback Blaster

    +poster

    I think it's news, as AUS wasn't getting Bruticus before. I'll upload a photo when I get home.
    Also the price is $89, pretty reasonable for a new game here in Australia.

    This is likely more suited to go in the NZ thread as it's pretty much the same news.

    We're not the same country so it is not the same news. Plus this is an update as well because originally the posters said we were not getting Bruticus.

    Hmm, $89? I doubt all the DLC content is worth $40. EBgames like to overprice games too.

    Who's selling it for $50? My EB Games price matches too, even with DLC.

    The problem you will find with Asian and US copies of PS3 games is that, though the games are not region locked, some game manufacturers region lock the DLC. You run the risk of not being able to buy DLC. I had this issue when i bought Red dead redemption from play asia and i wanted to download the Undead nightmare pack and couldnt because the DLC was region locked fro Australia and my copy of the game was a asian version.

    Not all gaming manufacturers do this however it is a bit of a gamble if you were to buy it now before it was released. If you look at the play asis website, they list the european version of the game also however it is $69.90, EBgames currently has the preorder+DLC listed for $78.00 by the time you add postage to the play asia euro version you might only be saving maybe $10. I would expect after the game has been out for a month or 2 Id expect you would be able to buy the DLC for anywhere between $10-$15.

    hope this helps everyone. I will be preordering through ebgames.

    Cheers.

    Starscream Gaga, can you post the image you mention in your first post. I am looking at the EBgames website ATM and they dont list bruticas as DLC, and the poster is listed as in store only.

    Ha! I told you Australia would get stuff like New Zealand! 8D

    @opt1musaber: Our stuff is pretty expensive in this country, sadly. Compare our AUS dollar and to US dollar, ours is double the price.

    I ordered the us version from play Asia for $56 with free shipping. Stuffed if I'm going to pay Aussie prices. I can have it sent over through fedex for $15, still works out way cheaper.

    I pre-ordered mine near the end of July in EB Games Australia. Do I still get all this stuff? Because when I paid for it, I didn't get a poster.

    You'll still get everything. You don't get the poster until you pick up the actual game, otherwise you could just keep preordering it and cancelling it to get unlimited posters.
