With all this nonsense of people cancelling and preordering.. What will happen with all the preorder bonuses? I originally ordered the UE edition for xbox but have now also ordered a standard copy for when my UE arrives..

I received an email shortly after from Amazon with the definitive preorder pack code..

I have not entered this code on my trion account as i am unsure of where my UE definitive code is..

Is this because that code is part of the same code i received and input into trion to access the beta?

I received that email too. I'm guessing it's the Amazon pre-order stuff?

I've only pre-ordered the UE - and I got the mail at about 4pm today saying about the delay in release - but then I received the pre-order bonus at midnight tonight.

Ermm.. I got the delay email.. Lemme check this new code email with the order number..

Edit: Ok so the email containing the preorder bonus IS from ordering the SE.. So where the hell is my UE preorder code :S

I'm starting to suspect Amazon may have lost the plot....... :)

The code you got when you placed your pre-order was for the Beta only. Sledgehammer70 stated in another thread earlier this month that the bonus weapon/car codes had not even been printed and distributed to the retailers yet. The bonuses for the UE itself will be tied to a code in the UE box.

The ones you just got MIGHT be for the pre-order weapon/Challenger, but may also just be an automated email containing the Beta codes they were given originally. I'd go ahead and enter it anyway if you're going to put both the UE and that standard on the same account.

We might need to have Lance or Mathew stop back by and verify the pre-order bonus item issue again. By now they have probably been sent to the retailers, but I was under the impression that we'd get those items when we picked up our copy or via email when it shipped. I honestly don't think you'll have a problem entering it, even if it is an old Beta code that slipped out.

In the small print is does read that if you order after the beta the ONLY code sent to you IS the definitive preorder code.. So now im a little confused on what this code is :/ the email just confirms it really.. Ill get it up 2 secs..

This order number btw coincides with my SE preorder even though this means i should of already received my UE code..

Hmm.. Perhaps they've received the codes at last. I'd definitely pop that rascal into your account page so you're ready to rock on release.

Assuming of course that you can actually get your copy, given the current fiasco that seems to be brewing with Namco Bandai at present.

It still doesnt explain where my UE definitive code is..

Good question. I have to wonder if that's related to the mess at Namco Bandai as well. If I recall from the other thread, isn't the 360 UE the one that's being delayed?

Might be worth asking Amazon when you could expect that particular code.

I have a question, I selected PC when I made this account but I'm getting it on xbox now (PC got destoryed :/) and I've received the pre order code email from amazon for xbox UE. Will it matter if I type in the code for xbox even if my account is selected for PC as you have to do it on trion first?

Just means i can hook my buddy up if he has to cancel his preorder with amazon if his ultimate isnt shipped tomorrow.. :)

Also, just tried to input the last code they gave me.. Says the code has already been redeemed..

Does this mean that anyone that has already preordered of amazon and slapped their code in for the beta WILL also recieve the definitive bonuns pack as part of that initial beta code?

Edit: All sorted now :)

So if I receive my xbox redeem code for the UE pre order bonuses by the 2nd then I take it I can use the SE and still receive my UE bonuses? If that it the case then what is stopping people cancelling their UE (As it is delayed by 10 days.) buying the SE and still sing the UE codes of which will be sent via email?

Because that isnt the case.. If you preordered the UE and received a beta invite.. That is ALSO the same code which gives you the definitive pack bonus which is Amazon exclusive.. The extra bits for buying UE will come WITH the UE box..

Right, gotcha.

Now I have to make a choice. Do I cancel my UE and buy the SE so I can play from day one or wait and then lag behind my friends that have ordered the SE until the UE shows up.
