I normally dont like to buy from gamestop but im a sucker for the free stuff it comes with. If you dont know gamestop gets a (according to the site) pistol with a fire rate equal to however fast you can pull the trigger. I had no intention of getting it here but then i saw the hacker suit... that thing looks bad a**... which do you prefer (im not asking where you are getting it, just which deal you would choose).
I would normally say Amazon, but this time it's Gamestop. I'm pretty sure the Hacker Suit, which does look cool, can be unlocked by playing Dead Space Ignition, the choose your own adventure puzzle game prequel to Dead Space 2. And if you preorder at Gamestop you get Ignition and the exclusive gun.
the hacker suit has nothing to do with amazon. it's unlocked by playing dead space ignition on XBLA/PSN. you can get it as a preorder bonus free, or buy it for 400 msp/5$ on XBL/PSN. personally i like amazon better.
even w/ mortal kombat where i get screwed by getting reptile's classic fatality & gamestop has scorpion's. don't even get me started on these fatalities being ripped out of the game & being dangled as preorder bait; then, the publishers will complain about gamestop & used game sales when they ENCOURAGE gamers to shop there by giving gamestop the best preorder bonuses. okay, i'm done. sorry.
@camomile reviewer "I love amazon but went with the gamestop preorder to get the gun."
Wow, Gamestop ripped you off. You get the gun for free if you have any kind of Dead Space 1 save file, you dont need a 'promotional code.' Plus preordering on Amazon netted me the Dead Space: Ignition arcade game and some other goodies.
I prefer Amazon. The price of the game was $5 off and for $1 it will be delivered to my doorstep on release date. This is compared to paying full price plus tax plus plus driving to pick it up if it was at GameStop. The promo DLC didn't really matter to me because I figure I can unlock eventually during gameplay (maybe, if not, oh well).
