    I realize that there was already a poll when only Amazon and Gamestop announced their exclusive characters but with the addition of Best Buy's Jazz I figured it would be worth revisiting the question: "Where should I buy WFC from?"

    I'll be playing this game on my PS3 and am strongly leaning towards Best Buy.

    I'm undecided, in the UK they haven't yet released details on who is going to have what, not fully anyway ... i think only play.com have said they have Demolishor and i'm hoping some other sites will have something better.

    Undecided. I will be getting this game on June 22nd for sure. However I'm getting it for PC and even though I'd like to get Shockwave, GameStop has stated that he'll only be available for PS3 and 360. So I might as easily just walk into Target and pick up my copy.

    But someone on these boards claims that despite what it's said on their website, Gamestop will probably be offering Shockwave for the PC as well. So right now I'm debating whether or not it's worth it to pre-order from Gamestop in the vain hope that they 'might' be offering Shockwave for the PC too.

    I chose undecided right now. Frankly, I'm leaning toward Best Buy to get Jazz, but I want to see who else is going to be available from each of the stores before I put in my preorder. Though, Jazz is at the top of my list right now and will be pretty hard to knock off.

    I'm torn between Gamestop and Best Buy. Jazz is one of my all-time favorite Autobots, but Shockwave just looks so...badass. I had planned on going with the majority of the vote, but was surprised to see that so far...everyone else is undecided, too. I wonder if stores like Target, Walmart and Toys R Us will have their own special preorders...

    Unless a different store comes out with a exclusive character I like more, I'll be cancelling my Gamestop preorder and getting one from Best Buy. I got the preorder well before Jazz was announced...

    I am still struggling (hard to believe) with if I am even going to get it. I want it SO BAD now that I saw all of the new stuff out, but I want Halo Reach and Call of Duty 7. I have next to no allowance and I am going away on two separate trips this summer (one is international) so I can only really buy one thing that I want this year game wise.

    It's so tough, but if I can win that Best Buy giftcard I have my eyes on at the orthodontist, that is where I shall preorder and eventually get the game (if there is time and it is going to happen)

    Does anyone know if in the recent past did stores such as Wal-Mart, Target or even Toys R Us get exclusive versions or content for video games?

    Yes, for Ghostbusters Walmart had gold proton packs that is the only one I can think of right now.

    I am getting mine at Best Buy, I will never go to a Gamestop again I will still make purchases through their site though.

    I'll pirate it, game prices in my country sucks ultra balls due to greedy motherfuckers, they don't care about me therefore I don't care about 'em, my revenge is my thievery.
    seriously, 250 bucks for not even NEW release games? Go fuck a rabid goat brazilian game stores.

    I've got mine pre-ordered with Play.com... Since so far its the only UK store to advertise having an exclusive character (demolisher) Would I swap if other stores picked up the other guys? I dunno as I have a feeling that going online would be a case of fighting 3 shock waves 4 jazz's and only me as demolisher...

    To be honest, I can't make up my mind, so I'm undecided.

    P.S.-Mechafire, is that a WFC-styled Fembot? There's fembots in WFC!?

    I'm not jumping the gun. I want to see my options before I put money down. Be it Gamestop or amazon.com I'll have to pay the mandatory shipping rate of $24.99 for express mail service--no choice in the matter:( 

    Before asking my folks to swing by a store and buy it for me, I want to be sure I won't regret my purchase. Still, in the end, I'll probably end up going with Amazon.com because of our long-standing relationship, though I would rather have Shockwave at the moment.
