So many games offer in-game stuff to those who buy the special edition or preorder from certain stores, I do like it because if you're a fan of the game you can get some goodies to play with in-game.  This kind of thing is extremely common now, and maybe going too far sometimes, but it got me thinking, what was the first game that got this all started?
