Since you're getting the gold version of Cole's new electrical weapon, 4 additional bonus in-game items including the exclusive Reaper skin and 3 different Amp variants, Sly's Cane, Caveman Club, Samurai Sword as well as early access to the Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer Beta, Amazon figures that covers your bonus which is probably worth around $20 by itself.
"Everyone gets the bonus items and reaper skin. Amazon's only exclusive is the Gold Amp which is the most useless bonus of the four they're offering."
I agree, usually this type of DLC I end up selling on ebay because it really doesn't add to my experience. I hope they offer at least a $10 credit. I've noticed that Amazon usually keeps an eye on what Walmart is doing and matches their deals.

I would take a 20 dollar credit over this without blinking an eye. Heck I even would take a 10 dollar credit over it. I could care less about playing a beta when I could potentially take 10-20 dollars off the REAL GAME. And I wouldn't use the skins anyway.
everyone will get the uncharted 3 beta because everyone will get a free month of psn+. plus it's only early access. everyone will get to play they beta even if psn didn't go down & cause sony to offer the psn+.
Amazon will quite possibly match this deal on Tuesday, since that's when K-Mart's deal officially begins (it's on in-store sales, not pre-orders).
They did this with L.A. Noire, upping the deal to a $20 bonus credit on release day. Thankfully, they extended this to people who had pre-ordered the game to receive $15 credits by granting these customers an additional $5 in credit. I am certainly HOPEFUL that if Amazon adds a $20 credit to Infamous 2 on release day, that they will grant this bonus credit to pre-order customers, but that is quite the gamble.
Personally, I am planning to cancel my pre-order and wait to see if Amazon matches the deal on Tuesday. If they do, I will order it and receive it on Wednesday. If they do not, I will buy the game from K-Mart.
I hope KMart still does what the did with LA Noire. For those that don't know, KMART was giving out a 20 dollar coupon with that game as well. But the Friday or Saturday before the release, they also added a free 20 dollar game to the mix. So you got LA Noire, a 20 dollar coupon, and a free 20 dollar or under game( my choice was Borderlands). That would be awesome if they did that again
Yeah, I had this pre-ordered for about six months at least, but cancelled it because they aren't coming close to meeting the Kmart deal. $20 credit is MUCH better than a gold skin for my weapon. Considering all new copies of the game come with the Reaper skin and the three weapon skins (club, sword, Sly's hook).
pisses me off that i decided to try and cancel at 7am central time & it says shipping soon (w/ FSSS) so i can't cancel it (they said they cancel request failed). amazon failed sorely on this game. their shipping costs, not mine, lol.
