Limited edition Persona Q 3DS XL coming exclusively to GameStop

Seems that being an American isn’t all bad, at least if you want to get your hands on this limited edition GameStop exclusive Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth themed 3DS XL. It will retail for $199.99, hardware only.

Persona Q hits retail on November 25th. Sadly this ‘3DS XL’ isn’t one of the new hardware revision that Nintendo announced, this is the old model and America won’t be seeing the new model till sometime 2015. Its a shame because it makes this purchase less tempting.

Sonic Boom GameStop US pre-order bonus revealed – an exclusive Sonic the Hedgehog action figure

SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has revealed that those who pre-order Sonic Boom for either the Wii U or 3DS will receive an exclusive action figure. The figure, released by Tomy, features Sonic Boom‘s Sonic the Hedgehog with a “The Ancients’ Crystal” accessory. I assume the crystal accessory is what makes the figure unique, as we’ve already seen figures of Sonic and other characters on display at SEGA’s E3 booth.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Sonic action figure as a pre-order bonus, as the UK saw a Sonic Colors Colours figure as a pre-order bonus. At the moment, however, the Sonic Boom figure is US only.

Buy any version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at Gamestop, get a free Hot Wheels Danicar

Update: I visited a local Gamestop to learn more about the offer. Since I had my heart set on the 3DS version, I asked to pre-order the game. I was told the game was set for a February 12th, 2013 release date and that I could put down anywhere from $5 to the total cost of the game to pre-order. I put down $5 and then asked for the Danicar. The cashier was surprised I knew they existed, and asked the manager if I could have one. It was then that I learned stores were told that only those buying the game would get a car, but it wasn’t made clear if pre-ordering also meant the customer gets a car. Since, in the managers words “they had a lot” of the Danicar, I could have one. In short, buying the game now for the 360, PS3 or Wii U will get you a car (if they have them in stock). Pre-ordering for Vita may or may not get you the car, but given the game releases next week, you’ll just have to ask nicely and perhaps putting down the full amount for the pre-order will sweeten the deal. Same goes for the 3DS version. End update.

Back in October, SEGA unveiled Danica Patrick’s in-game model and made the announcement of an exclusive Hot Wheels SEGA-branded Danicar. Where could fans get the toy? Who knew! All we were told was that “the ‘Danicar’ will also be available as an exclusive diecast vehicle available this holiday season with purchase of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at select retailers.” Awesome! A month passed, the game released and… no Danicar. No sign of it at any store. Some fans, such as myself, waited until release week hoping to learn which “select retailers” would have the freebie before making a firm pre-order. No news turned up, so the Danicar was forgotten, fans bought the game and a month passed. Then, fans over at The Sonic Stadium forums discovered the toy car on ebay, with a “Gamestop Exclusive” label and as such, turned to Gamestop to see what the deal was. Some stores were genuinely confused, directing fans to stores like Toys R Us where they can find Hot Wheels cars. Other stores had the cars, but weren’t quite sure what to do with them. As of Sunday, it seems, stores are now giving the cars away with copies of the game.

Anarchy Reigns pre-order exclusives revealed

SEGA’s blog has shed more light on the upcoming release of Anarchy Reigns.

Bonus content includes two multiplayer game modes, Mad Survival and Dogfight, and extra playable character: Bayonetta! After the break, a pair of trailers showing off the bonuses in action.

Pre-order Alpha Protocol at GameStop, get exclusive guns

This seems to be standard practice now for GameStop, having you pre-order games and getting extras. Now they will do with Alpha Protocol.

If you pre-order the game at your local GameStop, you will get the two exclusive guns pictured above. That is not all, you will also get two modified weapons; called Hamilton Howitzer and Samael Rapid-Fire Rifle. Those are not exclusive, I guess the modifications will be given out with pre-orders with other retailers.

Alpha Protocol is set to be released in the end of May, on Xbox 360, PC and Playstation 3.
