Borderlands Pre-Order Bonus

#1 Edited by TheThirstyWhale (67 posts) -

ok, so I am getting Borderlands, that isn't a question
 
however, since I am definitely buying it, I may as well get some bonuses if they're out there
I see that gamestop has a bonus gun pack that you get for pre-order but I don't see any bonuses from amazon
 
any other place have a better pre-order offer?
 
and on top of everything else, this will hit giantbomb news probably once they get settled into the office, but kotaku posted this earlier:

seems like now he will get overwhelmed, but it was a nice idea ha

Bonus gun pack? How does that differ from the thousands of unique guns in the normal game?

wierd thing is that the bonus does not come to the PC Pre-Order or atleast it doesn't say so ..

Its a really dumb bonus if you ask me...one of the biggest parts of the game is finding all your weapons yourself, just starting off with ones that will be good for like 10 levels or something probably is completely dumb to me.

my guess is that these are probably useful at the start and that's about it , not great but better than nothing
but this is exactly why i'm looking for what other pre-orders are out there, but i'm not finding anything
 
@ eezo, yea this is for xbox 360, not sure about the pc...

That is a pretty lame pre-order bonus.  I'll just be getting it on release day.

Why would you want a gun pack when there are over a million weapons in the game?

Huh. . .no thank you,sir. Definitely getting the game though.

@epilepsy:  
 
Pre-order gun or weapon packs are, more often than not, useless after an hour or so of actually playing the game. That or they're strictly cosmetic. If anyone ends up offering a non-in game bonus, I'd say go for that.

It has the word bonus in it.

I was in GAME yesterday and I saw posters for a Borderlands cap. I'm assuming that's with a preorder.
