Shenanigans are occurring in the pre-order market today, first up is an Origin only pre-order deal for Mass Effect 3 which is exclusive to the EU where you can get all the pre-order items in one hit for both Digital Deluxe Edition and the Standard Edition. Check out the pre-order page and rejoice in an outlet which will give you all the pre-order bonuses at once, no worrying about what special item you will miss out on. There have been lots of complaints about Origin, but this is a good move.
The second bit of pre-order action is for Sniper Elite V2. In this World War Two sniper love-in, we all know that the ultimate mission would be to kill Hitler, the only trouble? If you want to get the chance to kill Hitler in the game, you are going to have to pre-order it. The press release makes no mention of the mission being made available later to those who don’t pre-order. A decidedly bad move I think.
Thoughts on this pre-order malarky?
