    I'll hold off until i hear what other stores have planned. Or even if there will be a special edition with even more cooler stuff.

    Anyone remember the first Transformers movie game, where if you bought it at Gamestop you got "Exclusive" cybertron maps.....except the code included literally did nothing because the maps were already on EVER version of the game at EVERY store?

    For the love of...DON'T PREORDER IT AT GAMESTOP IF THIS PISSES YOU OFF!

    You want to show companies this kind of BS is unacceptable? Don't preorder it. The more support you throw at a sucky system only encourages it to stick around. If you hate the idea of preordering to unlock actual gameplay features, and a MAJOR CHARACTER, then WHY would you then go and accept that system?

    I'd love to play as Shockwave. I'm not going to unless it's released as a DLC/patch/whatever. Not only do I have a problem with the idea that I pre-order to get some in-game content (like a brand new character), I hate Gamestop and their preorder crap in the first place. So Shockwave will never be gracing my system unless he's available through other means.

    You can't change a system if you keep supporting the system. This is why people giggled when things like the Modern Warfare 2 boycott showed up. People were OMGIHATEMW2 and when launch rolled around, look who was playing. I just wish more people would actually stick to their principles than just roll over because they want something.

    what really sucks for me, is the one place i used to pre-order my games, gamecrazy, which had a much better system than gamestop, all closed down. i havent seen one in months. which means i just half to go back to gamestop to get all the stuff i want. which is a shame. gamecrazy was a great store.

    yeah, i agree - incentives for preordering games area terrible idea.

    i want every single piece of pointless fanwank i can think of included FOR FREE, and anything else is an insult to trufans everywhere.

    There's a more local chain of videogame stores out here, which I'm thankful for having something OTHER than Gamestop, but sometimes I'll just go over to Best Buy instead.

    Honestly, I don't get the need to preorder. Most games are not going to sell out, so the idea of guaranteeing a copy at launch is BS. If you want the game, and your VG store doesn't have a copy, poke your head into Best Buy/Target/Wal-Mart and get it there.

    Nice, I usually get games from GameStop anyway. I'll have to stop by today and pre-order; WFC Shockwave is going to be EPIC.

    Great, now I'm torn. Well I would like to preorder if that's the absolute only way to get Shockwave. I'm fairly certain he's gon be packin some major firepower. However....this game needs to entice me even more to ensure that I really want it enough to preorder. Those two trailers are just not enough, so more teases please!....

    Big question is....Is the code a DLC code or is it just an "unlock" cheat code? DLC would mean you have to buy from them to get the character, which is total bullshit no matter how you look at it. I hate store/company exclusive DLC, especially like they did with Mass Effect 2 where multiple stores got exclusives only for their store. I for one hope it's just like the last game, where it was just a cheat code and not DLC.

    I still don't understand why they couldn't fit him into the storymode. That makes me worry even more about the roster.

    I'm split over this.

    I will get this content regardless but I want to know how the code will work. Will it be a market place code or an in game code? if its an ingame code I dont see a point to going with them unless their the cheapest.
