UK GRAW 2 preorders getting exclusive weapon [update 1]
Our UK friends who preordered Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 at their local GAME store will be receiving a special treat. Xboxic discovered that preorders will be emailed a code that will allow them to download a new gun called the Famas. Of course this begs the question whether or not it is really fair for certain players to have weapons that others either can't get or would have to pay for. We don't agree with messing up the "balance" of GRAW 2's multiplayer weapons system (if there is balance) by allowing exclusive weapons and not having a level playing field. What do you think, should developers offer rare or purchasable weapons in FPS or do you think it just isn't fair?
Update 1: Chris stopped by the forums to set things straight. This free code is for the Famas gun in the single player campaign and not multiplayer. Everyone will have the gun in multiplayer. You can now rest, everything is zen-like in the world.

This is for singleplayer. The Famas is available to everyone in multiplayer whether they've preordered or not....
don't let that stop you from pre-ordering though ;)

You want to talk about unfair and a level playing field? Lets try releases where the game ships, in some cases, months earlier in the US than in Europe. Let us have something to make ourselves feel better!

I don't see anything wrong with it. I would enjoy getting something special for dropping 60 bucks before I've played the game(Not that GRAW 2 is going to have any surprises). And it's not like the weapon is the Redeemer.

I use the Famas in MP and its does just fine. It gets the job done. Thats all that really matters.

DON'T BUY FROM GAME !! They are supposed to be a video games shop. But the overprice everything. The one place you'd expect the lowest prices for games would be a games store!! But no.
They also ignore release dates and piss everyone off who pre-ordered else where. MONEY GRABBING WANKERS

P.S - You'll find GAME's prices in line with or under RRP... we were not allowed to OVERPRICE and GAME's Deals of the Week are consistently the best on the high street. Check www.game.co.uk

Sorry but I agree with #7. I find them them one of the most expensive local game shops.
I'll pop in for a look round but refuse to buy anything on principal, unless it's an emergency.
They must be doing something right though cos every time I walk past it's full of parents and teenagers who don't know any better. Bless 'em.
