Pre-order Bonuses with the Uncharted 3 Bundle
Welcome back to the gaming corner of the Savings.com world. This week I'm taking a look at one of the year's most anticipated titles, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
and the pre-order bonuses being made available to anxious gamers everywhere. Look at this as an example of the myriad available pre-order options that accompany most big game releases nowadays.
Join the Club!The Fortune Hunters Club
that is. Gamers who take advantage of a pre-order option to become a
member of this DLC (Downloadable Content) program will receive a
plethora of bonus options. According to 1UP.com
, the benefits of membership include: "the first four multiplayer map packs and first three multiplayer skin packs as they're released."
club membership will cost $24.99. Just waiting to purchase the DLC when
the individual components hit will cost upwards of $45. So $25 on top
of a $60 game purchase sounds a sight better than $45 extra. As always
this is only a deal if you are big into extra content. If the core
gaming experience is enough, I'd say save your money and put it towards
buying another game.
Amazons Attack!Amazon is entering the Uncharted 3 pre-order
fray by offering their own exclusives for purchasing through their
site. Ordering through Amazon will net you an exclusive code that
unlocks the following weapon upgrades:
- Carpet Bomb Kickback
- Clip Size Mod for Para 9
- Clip Size Mod for G-MAL
No pricing discount (as of this writing
) for this pre-order, but stay
has a way of throwing up a limited time discount before
and after big releases.
The Best Buy in Town
Well, Best Buy's pre-order offer
at least is pretty cool. Again, no discount attached, but they are offering an
exclusive code to receive a free Regeneration Booster to use in-game.
"Pre-order Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception
for PS3, and you'll receive a code for early access to the Regeneration
Booster. The booster comes in handy in both Competitive and Cooperative
matches, by speeding up your rate of recovery from wounds by 70%. Code
will arrive via e-mail on or round release date."
The full list of bonuses and free DLC exclusives can be found at the Gameinformer.com Drake's Deception news page
. It includes exclusives at Walmart
, as well as details on the contents of the Collector's Edition.
Finally, there is a special Uncharted 3 bundle
being offered that can be pre-ordered for $299 (sorry, no significant discount here). The bundle does include a copy of Drake's Deception and a 320 GB hard drive PS3.
Naughty Dog's latest foray into the high adventure world of Nathan Drake comes out on November 1st exclusively for the PS3 at a price of $59.99.
