    My sis did; she works at a Gamestop as a temp. worker who will probably keep the job since she knows how to kick ass at games.

    My sympathies to her.

    I'll wait until preorder bonuses are announced.

    I think I'm gonna wait until we have an actual launch date before I go putting down any money. Plus I don't buy games that often, so I almost never preorder.

    I usually pre order at Gamestop so I'll probably wait until they announce the bonus. Hopefully it'll be something other than a code for a DLC that'll be available in 2 weeks anyways.

    I can't wait to not preorder just for my local store to not stock it again which ultimately allows me and the few purchasers to get copies with pre-order characters.

    That being said, I don't believe in pre-ordering for characters which known HMS will likely happen. No matter how many times myself and other told people not to pre-order and to not buy from ebay because the characters will be DLC, they did it.

    It's like a recurring nightmare.

    I'm fully aware and expecting preorder characters will be DLC a month after launch. And no, I don't have a problem with it. And if someone wants to buy said character off ebay, well as long as they don't get angry when it's made DLC, then I don't have a problem with that either.

    This all the way; it isn't as if it's going to sell out or anything.

    Even hit games like Uncharted still have collector/bonus sets still in stores, well after its release. No need to rush.

    Now if they pack in a five piece Bruticus exclusive, I'll pre-order right away mind you:p

    Highly unlikely. Nearly every time you see a retailer say it will be the 1st of a month, they don't actually know. They just put a date on the title so their system can take reserves for it. This is an extremely common practice. This is merely a place holder date.

    Also, if I weren't aware of this practice (not that there is anything wrong with it, just don't believe it because the retailers don't), I would also be leery of this date because no game comes out on the first of a month. Or at least so rarely that I can't recall one. December 1st 2012 will be a Wednesday. Publishers release games on Tuesdays for some reason.

    That is true to say. But still, who spends £90 on a character code?

    Probably the same folks who paid $75 for Shockwave, Jazz and Demolisher each on eBay. Had I known they were going to fetch that much, I NEVER would have used my codes. I'll take a free game anyway!

    Yeah I work at gamestop, and we still have 2 or 3 Collector edtion Skyrims,1 or 2 Gears of War 3 Epic edtions, And at least 1 Batman Arkham City. and all of these are the big bad $100-150 edtions. In other words there "should" be some extra even if you don't preorder. But I'll preoder anyways just so Zi can pay for it a little at a time.

    I just preordered at Amazon, but I might cancel depending on if there is a collectors edition. I really don't know why there wasn't a collectors edition of the first one that came with a TF of some sort. That's logical isn't it?

    I didn't realize until now. The trailer said the release date of Fall of Cybertron is "FALL 2012". xp
