Nice news DM, you're coming out clutch!

But yeah... this news reminds me that we're getting a video game too, haha. I was too pepped up from the toys..

this kind of stinks, i dont own a 360 or ps3 yet so i will miss out on shockwave. i have no intention of preordering the game when i dont even know what console i may eventually want it for.

Is it just for the 360 or is it for all the systems?

I wouldnt get too ecited about the exclusive unlock code. Most of the time its just a password or button combot that you can find online or its something you will unlock in the game eventually anyway. I seriously doubt that activision produced a character model that will only be available to customers of one retailer. I was really hoping they would do something cool like a minicon or a keychain or something but they have been getting cheaper with insentives.
For the record Gamestops bad mmmmkay!

So will it just be some kind of code you put in to unlock them, like the first movie game?
Oh yeah, about the News story, it's "everybody's," not "every-bodies." Knowing is half the battle!

GameSuck? Aw, man. Means most likely that we here in Norway are going to get shafted. Here's to hoping the local game store (GAME) gets Shockwave. Though I'd be furious if it was for example Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime or Ultra Magnus that was the exclusive. Though seriously, we need ol' Shocky as a standard character, not a exclusive. /facepalm.jpg :CON:

Just because Gamestop says it's exclusive to them, doesn't mean it is. They say the same thing about pretty much every pre-order bonus for every game, even if it isn't true, and it almost always isn't.

I'm curious about this too, as I'd probably be getting the Wii version of this seeing as I have no 360 and have no intention of buying one in the near future.

Thanks. :D

This is XBox and PS3 only.

Exclusive video game content is an even worse idea than exclusive figures. At least with figures there's an aftermarket.

Well, this sucks. Not that I don't love Shockwave, I just hate the fact that he's only playable in Multiplayer mode. I never use Multiplayer on any game, & I don't expect any different for this game...

Hmm, I am excited about this. I don't know if I'll go out and pre-order it just to unlock Shockwave but I am very interested in learning how they will run the multiplayer. If the campaign is short, the multiplayer will have to sell the game for me.

Online only? goddamnit i hate online only skins. Now the real question is, will it be a real exclusive via DLC code or just some universal code you enter at the menu like ROTF had, that was crap.

Well, that is frustrating. Not so much that its a store exclusive, but that its online only. I want to play the game as shockwave.

Meh. I've never been a hug fan of Shockwave. I always thought he was a wussy bot. I hate playing online so he won't be missed by me!

Well, this sucks. I was hoping for a figure as an incentive for preorder. I wonder if they would do a Collectors Edition like that. I honestly have not much use for an online-only character.

I'm getting really tired of this online-only junk...makes me want a PS3 and 360 even less, it's just making me angry. If it turns out to really be Gamestop-exclusive, which I doubt it will be, that pretty much shuts out any possibility of him for me anyways.
