haha, I was thinking of doing that, too. I know my girlfriend will be the one raising hell if I get another game on my own before Christmas, though. :( Gotta make sure to tell her to get it from Amazon for the bolt bonus... I can't help it... PS3 really has the strongest game lineup- I don't care what anyone says.
It's back up now. But 10 days after release for the code and instructions? I'll have beaten the story and carried over those two items into Challenge Mode by then. Oh well. I didn't preorder to get some lame bonus, I did it to get the game guaranteed.
It just gives you a free 5,00 bolts, which is the in-game currency. It also gives you immediate access to two items that make it easier to collect bolts in the game. Normally you have to find those items as you play through the game, but with this bonus you get the two items right from the start, assuming you wait long enough to get the code before you start playing (I'm certainly not :P ).
No, that is not true in both senses of that. First of all, GameStop isn't the only place you can get the Insomniac Moon. That world is in every copy of ACiT. The only difference is that you have to find it hidden in the game if you don't get GameStop's utterly worthless pre-order bonus.
Second, the Insomniac Moon isn't actually a new level in terms of what you'll mainly be playing. It's a place that just lets you explore a game version of Insomniac's building where they make the game and see things that were cut from it. It's a bonus area, not an actual level to play in.
So, yeah. Don't preorder from an awful store like GameStop that doesn't even honor the fact that you pre-ordered just to get something that is in every copy of the game anyway. You should pre-order from Amazon instead because they actually give a damn that you ordered and won't sell your game to somebody else like GameStop would.
but the question is where has the pre-order bonus gone :S the thing is that i have pre-ordered when the bonus was there but now when i came back the pre-order bonus suddenly disappeared :S does it mean that they have ran out of the codes and won't be giving more to new customers as they pre-ordered ?
and would i get my pre-order code since i did ordered when the bonus was there !
i pre ordered uncharted 2, which came with a pre order bonus (lame treasure map) and nowhere on my order page did it ever list the bonus. which leads me to believe that even if the pre order bonus for R&C is appearing/disappearing, it will be given out to everyone who did pre order. i mean, these are codes that they are generating. they can't "run out." i wouldn't worry about it. if someone who pre ordered when the bonus was on the page can confirm that they can or can not see the bonus appearing on their invoice, that would also support what i'm saying as well. thanks~
Chances are that you get the preorder bonus still. But really, it's not a big deal. None of the pre-order bonuses for this game are that great anyway. They're all in-game content, except whoever has that Home skin (which could possibly unlocked in game as well), but it's Home so who cares?
the pre-order bonus is back :) btw i just started playing r&c quest for booty ( yeah i know didn't had time before to play it ) and i just racked up 25k bolts in the first mission LOL, so 5k wont be that big haha
