    Apparently Gamestop has a 30 day exclusivity clause for the 4 on 4 Squad Rush mode WTF

    4 on 4 vs squad mode sounds like some shit taken straight from the original Quake.

    GAME/Gameplay have the exclusive bullshit here so that will probably carry over too.

    I'll be getting it from the cheapest place, fuck them.

    I don't even see how it's legal to sell a game and not give the purchaser access to the entire contents of the disc until x date

    This new generation of DLC/preorder/exclusivity is fucking horse shit. Fuck it to hell, I wish gamers had the balls to not buy into it.

    i read that blurb about the gamestop thing 5 minutes after i preordered...i'm not sure if i would have bought the game if i had known about it. I still might cancel it and put the money towards red dead redemption

    Unfortunately, the current economic depression has hit the gaming industry believe it or not. What pre-ordering does is help ship units, which is the #1 priority for most developers/publishers. So in many cases, retailers create pre-ordering perks in order to lure potential customers and ship more units.

    It's quite simple really. I seriously wonder why so many people bash it. :hsugh:

    it's one thing for gamestop to give their preorder people a code to download an exclusive weapon.

    it's a whole other ballgame when someone buys a game and on the disc that they paid for is something that they can't access

    Hey man I heard Toyota is selling new cars, but if you don't preorder you'll have to supply your own windshield. :bowdown:

    V8 engine is standard, but if you don't buy it from Gamestop Toyota, you can only use 6 cylinders for the first month

    Last BFC I went to all the effort of getting the codes which was kind of entertaining I suppose but then they released them all anyway :rofl:

    "the PC version will come with the mode unlocked."

    I don't see a problem.

    Also, just buy it at Gamestop. What's the big deal? I hate everything about WalMart, but they have good prices on some things so I go there anyway sometimes.

    I'd be pissed if they locked it on the PC version.

    Just out of curiousity, whats happening in other countries? For example UK, Europe and Austrailia? Same deal with different retailers?

    As above GAME/Gameplay have the exclusive here on the Ltd Edition version, not heard anything about this locked mode so far though.

    Seeing as the preorder is £39.99 i'll just do without thanks :rofl:

    i always preorder from amazon now because it's brainless and they pricematch up until it ships. I got a $20 credit by the time MW2 shipped
