|This is absurd.|
Square-Enix AKA Squenix has introduced a way to, "Augment your pre-order," and be given the so-called choice or choosing various rewards if enough people pre-order the game. Anyone who pre-orders currently can pick between three different outfits for your character. You can't have all three, just one. Should enough pre-orders be made that Tier 2 is reached a person can choose between getting a digital artbook or a sampler of digital music. Tier 3 gives everyone a bonus mission, Tier 4 allows you to pick between a digital comic or novella, and if Tier 5 is obtained, the game comes out 4 days early somehow.
every article about this scam is negative and points out that the best solution is you, the consumer, don't pre-order games. If companies realize they will face more back-lash from taking stuff out of a game and holding it hostage than they do profit, they will stop (one can hope).
Until this madness ends, I'm going to continue to not pre-order games. There are always plenty of copies in-stock considering how many stores carry video-games. Seriously, if Gamestop tells you they can't sell you a copy of something because they only have enough for pre-orders, walk across the street to Best Buy; you shouldn't ever go to Gamestop anyways. This insanity needs to end before we get to a point where you can't even buy a game unless you pre-order it. Oh God, I hope I didn't give anyone any ideas.
