I see. Also, I feel that ingame bonuses for preorder and special edition purchases is unfair. For example, Fallout: New Vegas had the Caravan Pack for preordering from Steam and Wal-Mart, the Classic Pack from GameStop and EB Games, Best Buy's Mercenary Pack, which apparently makes the game unplayable if it and Patch 1.3.0.444 are installed, at least for the Xbox 360 version and from Amazon.com and Direct 2 Drive, the Tribal Pack. Those that did not preorder get just the base game, nothing extra and to get the full experience, you'd have to preorder four copies of the game, which would be highly unlikely, and ridiculous, or, potentially something I would condone: piracy.


FOR THE REPUBLIC!
