Cryptic Points for Retail Keys? (Steam Gave me 500) Others claim same for theirs.
Hey I just registered my steam DDE and I was surprised to see I got 500 Cryptic points as well!

Sadly my Amazon CE didnt give me that, but some claim they did get like 1000 or so. I know SOME retailers the bonus was the points.. but when Steam gave me it too.. and others claim they got points from their codes..

Now Im forced to ask, is everyone supposed to get 500 points or is this a glitch in the system and I should count my blessings? Thanks.

the people who said that were wrong. The confusion comes from that the only CE listed for the US on the pre-order page was's and some EU sites that had the 500 points listed. This was NOT the case for the actual retail CE, but the pre-order bonus for pre-ordering it through certain EU retailers and Atari.

To recap, the CE doesn't come with any free cryptic points. In the US pre-ordering it from Atari got you free points, and in the EU ordering it from a few other stores came with free points, but if you pre-ordered the CE from anyone else you got what THAT store was offering for their pre-order. Connie class for Gamestop, Borg BO for Amazon, etc.

Ok all new notes:

ALL DDE got 500 points.

Those "Select retailers i.e Atari" who SAID you would get 500 points as a bonus seem to have got this added on TOP of the 1st 500.

So youd have 1000.

I know Im happier I bought steam now tho. I wouldve added D2D purchase too if I had known this. lol.

I don't have 500 points but I also don't have my Chrono armour either so I assume that I will get them on European launch on the 5th. I seem to have an extended headstart
