Confusion about the pre-order bonus
#1 Submitted: Tue, 24/05/2016 - 19:49

I live in the Netherlands / Holland, and I always order my games from a website called Nedgame. I want to pre-order the PlayStation 4 version of C:MD, but there is no information listed about the pre-order bonus:

https://www.nedgame.nl/playstation-4/carmageddon-max-damage/2946790384/

I contacted Nedgame, but they said there will be no pre-order bonus. This is weird, because Nobby told us that everybody who pre-orders the retail version will get the pre-order bonus.

I am totally confused now. Will I get the bonus or not?

the problem is that most retailers dont know about the pre order bonuses

if cars aren't meant to crash why do they have air bags?

I know, and it's really bugging me. I hope Stainless can do something about this. It's not that I don't trust Stainless, or Nedgame, but I really want to be sure that I get the bonus content. I mean, there's no other way to get these 2 cars.

Stainless have said all pre-orders will have the pre-order bonuses. I would assume they will be done in the same way as a large number of games do it where the code is included in the box and not the responsibility of the retailer to give out separately.

Gamemania has the pre order bonus listed AND you get a poster. So i would go for that option. I think most places where nedgame is located, also have a gamemania store, but then again, i could be wrong.

Thats true. Amazon still acts stupid when asked. And yet Gamestop has the details on their site.

and I also think it will be the way Trent said.

EDIT Gamestop says this "Online Customers: Code will be emailed within 2 business days after your order ships. " Which BTW Amazon does this part very well timed the night before you get the boxed game in the mail.

If I can't get the cars, this would be a really nice solution. This would also be great for the people that want the game digitally.

Yeah, this is indeed the case with most PS4 games, but It happened to me a few times that I didn't get the pre-order bonus with some games, while it should have been included. (I am not only talking about Nedgame here.) This is what makes me so worried about Carmageddon: Max Damage.

Game Mania is not an option for me. The closest Game Mania store is pretty far away. Bol.com also has the pre-order bonus lised, but I don't trust that website. (I had too many problems with that site in the past.) Nedgame is my only hope.

I pre-ordered from bol.com and I regularly order from them, never had any problems.

I used to order from Bol.com quite often, but I always ended up with broken/damaged game/bluray cases. Their way of packaging is pretty terrible in my opinion.

Anyway, I pre-ordered from Nedgame. I'll just have to wait and see I guess.
