This is how you handle preorder bonuses

with all due respect andeolus that is not the greatest example. if I understood what you wrote in that game if your pre order you will get to play as batman. ( over powered ) but when you look at ours it was some uniforms, a tribble, a rifle, and a star ship. outside of the star ship all the other stuff was just fluff as people put it. Now if they had the option to play as captain Kirk only if you pre ordered then your example would work.
But most of the stuff outside of the star ship were minor. added to that Crypic did have a pre order FAQ that did stated that it would be released down the road outside of launch. (
and they had this released long before the cut off time to cancel the pre-order. ) while down the road means they can release it when ever they feel like it. I do feel that they released it why to early. In fact exclusives should never be offered because it divides the player base.
As for DCUO I would not point the devs to follow them because they are owned by SOE, and most of us remember what they did to MXO, and SWG
edit Oh and four copies on just myself.
