Pre-Order Bonus Breakdown for February
February isn't that exciting for games. It seems to be another slow month.. But there are a few noteworthy titles that are coming out with some nice pre-order bonuses. The Gamer’s Lounge has taken a look at some of the bonuses for pre-orders and breaks them down based on the best deals from Amazon and Gamestop.
Amazon and Gamestop have similar pre-orders. TGL checked Best Buy and a few other stores and didn't see much so we decided to focus on two of the bigger places to shop for games at. One of the most anticipated games of February is Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for PS3 and Xbox 360. This game is coming out February 11th. Amazon is offering Cloud’s Soldier 1st class Uniform with Buster Sword and the Yuna Summoner Outfit and victory pose. Gamestop is offering the same thing for Cloud and two Samurai outfits.
Toukiden: The Age of Demons is coming to Vita on February 11th as well. If gamers pre-order through Gamestop they will get 2 bonus missions and the warrior’s soul. Amazon will give gamer’s two pieces of armor and the same bonus missions.
Like Racing? NASCAR '14 is coming out mid February. If gamers buy from Amazon they get $5 in credit. Gamestop will give gamers 4 bonus cars. Earth Defense Force 2025 is coming out mid February and gamers that pre-order will get exclusive DLC from Amazon
The other biggest releases this month across multiple platforms are Thief, Castlevania Lords of the Shadow 2, and Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Thief is coming to PS3/360 and PS4/Xbox One. Amazon is offering the Bank Heist DLC and Gamestop is offering the same DLC but they are also throwing in access the companion app for Android OS and the official soundtrack. Out of all the deals this month this one intrigues me the most. Garden Warfare has some pre-order DLC as well and its only $30 which seems to point toward must buy. Amazon will give gamers two card packs which include gameplay and character items for Garden Warfare. Gamestop has a similar pre-order bonus. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is being released on the 25th as well. Amazon is offering the Dark Dracula Skin for pre-orders. Gamestop is offering Dracula Armor and a poster
There it is, the pre-orders bonuses of February. It comes down to where gamers want to buy their games this month. Hopefully in March gamers will see some better bonuses.
