level up.

Really kind of hate the trend of preorder bonuses :/

Edited by HellBrendy

This game has failed to give me anything close to hype. The levels seems so terribly uninteresting, and so does the robots. I'm not paying good money for various shades of grey and purple.

This is bullshit. You can't add such possibly game-changing preorder bonuses to a game-especially a game of a series which has had a fair share of bad games.

Wasn't shockwave a gun?

Posted by Vivek

This is taking the pre-order bonus too far. Only 3 people are going to be playing this anyway.

I fucking hate it when games do this shit ><
Yay lets split up major game elements between different retailers!
First ME2 armors and now this too ...
How about they stop doing this shit and make everyone able to use all the items that are in the game anyway. Instead of limiting the players choice just to suck retailer balls.
 
I don't mind preorder bonuses but splitting them up irritates me.
I was kind of on the fence on this game.
Lost sale.

Pre-order bonuses are fucking lame, especially store-specific ones.

Posted by NyxFe

If I can't play as soundwave in the PC version, they have lost another sale to a potentially huge fan. 

Edited by JackRandom

it's amazing to me that the game only features 6 playable characters out of the box, and then tacks on 3 more as bonuses.
that's 50% more content created just as bonuses... 
50% more that the average customer doesn't get.  
Fuck that

@Doomdeadly:  The bonus is Shockwave, not Soundwave.

" I wouldn't care about pre-order bonuses if they'd just fucking release them as Free DLC a month or two later. It's really annoying to think that parts of the game are forever locked to me cause I don't like to shop at Gamestop. "
Fixed.

I would imagine these are just skins that are playable on top of the base 6.  no?

Oh fuck you, Activision

Megatron turned into the gun. Shockwave turned himself into a cassette tape. 
 
I know. It was the 80's.

Hrm, looks interesting but wish that every studio that did different preorder stuff made a video like this showing just what you're getting & where instead of hunting around for it all over the internets.

@Burns098356GX: Soundwave turned into a cassette player.  Shockwave turned into some sort of turret if I remember correctly.  I'm not that rusty to confuse Soundwave and Megatron lol

Well fuck 3 separate retailer exclsuives and all only on 360.  Complete bullshit, their is no reason everyone shouldn't have access to these.
 
Ah well luckily their just model swap outs for the tank, scout and jet multiplayer characters same as the custom armor in ME2 was.

I refuse to complain about a game that might very well be awful.
 ps. Gamestop wins.

You're right. Shockwave was a Cybertronian gun, and one of the coolest of the original characters. Still, Jazz looks really sweet. Tough decision between these two. Poor old Demolishor is going to get left out in the cold.
Posted by Milkman

GameStop has the coolest exclusive but I will not be pre-ordering this game anywhere so meh.

Posted by TomA

This game looks terrible

Posted by Splodge

Stinky poop of a game. Flashbacks of "Small Soldiers" on the ps1. I imagine its going to be like that.

no no!!! that was SOUNDWAVE!!! SHOCKWAVE on the other hand becomes a sort of cannon

This sounds ALMOST as bad a cash grab as the Star Trek preorder bonuses.  Earn emotes, races, and special abilities by buying a lifetime subscription before the game is out.  Either way, since its impossible to get all the bonuses, this game is pretty much a big screw you to, basically, all its customers.

Posted by Wandrecanada

If it was Soundwave I would have been remotely interested.

Posted by bobdude1234

Look at the bottom print though guys... " Character playable in multi-player in escalation mode only"  
That sounds like a pitiful pre-order bonus to me and to all the people who aren't getting it because of this: lol.

preorders roll out!

If you continue reading after the line that says "only on Xbox 360",  you'll notice the text on the very next line goes on to basically say "...and the Playstation 3

"Complete bullshit, their is no reason everyone shouldn't have access to these. " 

I firmly believe that, much like many other already-on-the-disc "exclusive" unlockables, there will come a day in the not too distant future that everyone will be allowed access... for a fee, of course.  
(Yes, I'm looking at you Soul Caliber IV ... and you can stop sitting there looking so smug Little Big Planet, you know what you did)
Posted by Shaymarx

Maybe they're offering unlock/cheat codes and not dlc codes?
Posted by Spoonybard37

meh

Posted by Veektarius

I'm a big Transformers fan and I dont' like Demolishor or Jazz being closed off to me, but at the end of the day, even this is a false dichotomy.  I have been convinced this game has potential, but there's no way I'm preordering before seeing a score.

(slowly reaches towards eBay)

Posted by Jazz

I'm a pre-order bonus now? 
Does that mean I die really pointlessly again?

Posted by EvilBuddyHolly

Your fate is sealed, it would seem.  :-(
Posted by Hyper_Bunny_Meow

As i''m in the UK my only option would be Amazon as there is no Best Buy or Game Stop over here. Also as they can only be used in one multi-player mode it all seems rather pointless as an incentive to preorder the game.
Posted by MeatSim

If someone likes more then one of these 3 Transformers there pretty much screwed.

Posted by LiK

fuck this shit, 3 different exclusives and they're all cool characters. guess ebay wins cuz that's where i'm getting the codes.
