Nice, thx DelSol! Was wondering when/if they'd announce a pre-order exclusive for Best Buy.

 

Walmart got an exclusive sword weapon (Blade of Judgement), now Best Buy has an exclusive hammer weapon (Mjolner)... perhaps an exclusive spear weapon for Amazon???

 

In case ppl are thinking "oh, there's the Leonidas spear that Gamespot is offering with their pre-order DLC." Contacted Gamestop customer service for clarification about that offer. The King Leonidas DLC is just for a skin (i.e. it is NOT an armor set or a weapon item).


Hmm thats interesting. It does say "Armor and Spear" so I would be surprised if and didnt actually come with a spear. Who knows, maybe there is no third class Smiley Tongue either way I would be happy with Sword and Hammer.

 

Perhaps the agent you spoke didnt have the full information. I pre-ordered from EB games for the CE.

They seemed pretty confident... much to my disappointment of course Smiley Sad. I asked a second time just to verify, "So that means there is no Leonidas spear weapon? The King Leonidas DLC code we get is just for a skin/costume?" Their response was "That is correct."

 

There was also an "edit for clarity" on the playstation blog by a senior product marketing manager at SCEA that I posted on another thread; they changed "unique combat moves" to "unique appearance and same combat moves as other spear weapons."

Here's the thread I started regarding the King Leonidas DLC set vs skin ques to begin with, since different sites said different things. I was curious b/c personally I'd rather have an actual item vs something cosmetic, but to each their own.

Just thought about this. If Best Buy is getting Thor's hammer Mjolner... then how about Amazon gets Odin's spear Gungnir as preorder DLC? One can only hope lol Smiley Happy

I'm going to send Just-Tank a question.

What if you Pre-Order the Collectors Edition? do you get ALL these Exclusives with it?

You could order from the US or possibly UK for the bonuses, but you wouldn't be able to use the US DLC without a US PSN account.

It's US ;/

I need PAL or it wont work (NTSC)

I will ask in near shop will they be getting it from Amazon for example. If yes then I'll get it from them if not I will just pre-order it myself although I don't like the idea of going to the  counter and post specially since I closed all my bank accounts
