In most cases I could care less because its just clothes or guns that you use for the first mission and then never use again but there are some cases (Gears 3) where I want every single thing available because I consider myself somewhat of a collector.
So on to my real questions.
1. Does it drive you nuts when when the goodies are spread all throughout the various vendors?
2. Do you consider a pre-order goody something you and other pre-ordering folks should have alone or would you be mad if it was offered a month later via DLC from XBL/PSN?
1. YES!!! As while the case of my latest Purchase L.A. Noir
Gamestop had An extra case and badge collecting mini game and Walmart had an extra different case than GS.
When I buy a game I want to play everything available, especially if I really like the game.
2. No. I look at it as something I got for FREE because I pre-ordered it.
If you want it you'll have to pay later on.
I would also like the chance to get Pre-order things that may not have been offered in my state or country without paying an arm and a leg for it on E-Bay.
