I want to reserve copies of Bioshock Infinite and TR 9, but have become increasingly concerned about whether or not extras will be included unless opting to pay an for a special edition. In all reality I feel if new titles are so pricey, deserve to know precisely what can be expected. Specifically with TR 9 as a standard version believe it should have an equal ratio of DLC to physical inclusions. Instead of yielding why not wait for prices to drop or demand a drastic change toward future costs?

They just added exclusive bonuses for preordering on Amazon. Check it out.

This Amazon Pre order is lame. Give exclusive game content or a $$$ credit.

Thank you so much Phillip for letting me know. Unfortunately they did not offer anything exciting. Chances are I will likely sell my extras. As a gaming community I think we need to demand higher standards from developers, publishers and producers. Not only for improved downloadable content, but titles worth spending our money on. Why rush during the creation process for sake of deadlines, when quality work will stand against time? If anyone agrees with these sentiments please offer your opinions.

I disagree. Exclusive content is bad. What are we supposed to do when 5 different retailers have 5 different exclusives? We end up missing out. Also as good as Amazon is, it doesn't always have the best deal, which means you could find yourself paying more for those exclusives.

I think the Kindle-exclusive documentary is complete bull. How much of the target audience of TR even has a Kindle? We're gamers. We probably have other tech we'd rather watch it on. If the DLC and art book are not Amazon-exclusive, I'll be getting the game somewhere else.

I may have been ambiguous, but am proposing a demand for raised standards across the board. As consumers if we refused to buy exclusives from varying retailers without compromising on receiving the same bonuses perhaps, would re-establish the reality of who holds leverage in regards to their industry as buyers. Personally I have wanted to see more creativity instead of being given a standard art book, online pass and some sort of download. For example, it would be nice to receive nostalgic items like Lara's sunglasses or items paying recognition to Tomb Raiders rebirth (i.e. a survival nap sack, pick axe, map of the island etc). Also when asking for opinions I was in fact referring to everyone and therefore welcome alternate voices and perspectives on my previous post.

If you per-order somthing just becasue it come with additional bonus reward, then you should not pre-order. $59.99 is pricey I agree with that. However, we all know this is the price for new title game and ONLY for that game. You should feel thankful becasue Amazon offers some additional content since you pre-order the game through them. Certainly, you can pre-order through other place which offers more attractive bonus, but what is the point here? Just ask youself: do you really like this game or just the pre-order bonus content? I love Tomb Raider and I respect all the staffs behind this game who had worked thousand hours just for the date of its final release. So guys: pre-order it or just leave it.

Do you honestly think that preorder incentives don't have value? They do (that's while they're called incentives), and while people may not technically be "purchasing" them, they are definitely investing in them. I love Tomb Raider too but I'm under no delusion that preordering isn't a game with the goal to get the best content. Unfortunately Amazon loses this time.

I don't see why you guys are so worried about these pre-order bonuses.
1: The game content is going to be released a week or two after release.
2: If you don't like the freebies that are offered on a site, then purchase it elsewhere.

Personally, I think Best Buy's pre-order bonuses are better than Amazon. Graphic novel/art book is a win in my book. But, if you just want the book itself, wait for the promotional item to appear on ebay then. *Shrugs*

True, but not everyone has or wants to spend $100 on it.

I don't buy games with pre-order exclusive content, ever. I wait until there's a "game of the year edition" or they hit the bargain bin, or I buy used or something. Games with pre-order exclusive content don't get my dollar vote, it's not difficult to just spend my hard-earned money on a different gaming experience- this is exactly what I do.

All the pre order stuff is optional add ons, they are in no way neccerary or do they add anything substantial.

Some pre orders give incentives to buy... but this TR one blows. A $10 or $20 credit is needed here on amazon for a day one purchase.
