Will there be Amazon/BB/Target preorder "exclusives"?

8 replies 361 views Edited Feb 7, 2013

Just a little over 1 month til release, wondering if the other retailers will have their own unique offers.

 

Gamestop has the King Leonidas DLC and Walmart has the Blade of Judgement. No word yet from the others, which is a little strange. Amazon did include a $10 off coupon (only with standard edition, not the collector's) but no additional announcements regarding bonus DLC.

 

Has anyone discovered anything? I've been searching but no new leads...

Not unless you've got a very well-off mom-and-pop store nearby that sells new videogames and can afford to fund exclusives (I kid).

 

I'm sure http://www.godofwar.com/en-us/preorder/#exclusive_offers will keep us posted if anything changes, but it looks as though the ones you've mentioned are the only retail exclusives for GOWA.

@DJMadCow You Would Think These Other Major Electronic Retailers Would Also Offer Incentives .

Contacted Amazon and Best Buy customer service; both said there's no word yet on whether or not they will be having "exclusive" offers for the game. They further stated if they do have something exclusive, it will of course be advertised on their websites in the next couple of wks (probably on the GoWA site too like Eternal-CMO previously mentioned).

 

Still curious about these "potential" offers as time is running out b4 the release date. You'd think the other retailers would have announced something by now so ppl have enough time to get their pre-orders in.

 

Has anyone tried asking SSM about this on Twitter btw?

 

 

P.S. - also asked Amazon about the $10 credit they're offering for pre-ordering the standard edition of the game. The offer apparently will NOT be extended to the collector's edition in case ppl were wondering.

Exclusive sword for Walmart, exclusive hammer for Best Buy,... could it be exclusive spear for Amazon???

 

Only time will tell.

I think it was dumb to wait so long for other stores to start showing their pre-order bonuses. Here is the picture of Mjolnir from Best Buy.

Looks like Amazon will not be having any "exclusive" DLC preorder... however the $10 credit has been extended to the collector's edition as well!

 

B4 it only counted for pre-ordering the standard edition, but they updated the website Smiley Happy
