UK Pre Order 'Rewards'.

Postby Fananga » Sun Jul 22, 2012 12:45 pm

Ok for us in the UK ive found who is doing which Pre Order bonus and ive gotta say im a bit annoyed.

Amazon.co.uk - No Pre Order Bonus however its only £35 for the game.

Play.co.uk - Swoop Multiplayer Skin. Game is £45!!!

Game.co.uk - G1 Pack (Optimus Skin, G1 Weapons and Bumblebee Avatar/PS3 Background Skin). Game is £40

Shopto.net - G2 Bruticus single player Skin pack. Game is £39.85

Personally i would have gone for Swoop but £10 (about $15) JUST for the Swoop Skin is rediculous. Id advise anyone not to buy from Play since you know Swoop, and probably a few other Skins will be released in a bundle for about £8 worth of MS points anyway.

Honestly im thinking Game looks the best. Ive had bad experiences ordering from them in the past (The Original Transformers game ironically enough) but that Bundle is worth the £5 id save by going to Amazon.

I'm not sure I'll preorder at all, but if I do, yeah, looks like Game is the best bet. All of it's pretty poor, but then, as a UK-based TF fan, I've come to expect sub-standard service. :-$
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

And GAME.co.uk spoil my praise by being complete tools.

They, and sister company Gamestation have raised their price to £45 for the DLC bundle but sell the game alone at £40.

Looks like I'll be going to Amazon. I'm not forking out a tenner for DLC that's gonna cost less in MSN points in about a month.

Weapon: Dual Photon Launchers
I wouldn't be so sure about these pre-order bonuses being avalible on psn/Xbox market place later on. I don't remember Ratchet etc being avalible from the Dotm game. The only way to get him was to buy the exclusive version of the game for certain retailers.

As loads of people have mentioned Game are terrible. They have messed up every single on of my last 5 orders with them by either over-charging me ( they charged me £5 over the price on the website), not sending pre-orders out till a week after release, it goes on...

I want the G1 pack, but don't want to give Game my money.
