GamerFitNation: It has been a growing trend that big games now come with pre-order bonuses. These bonuses can range from an extra challenge in single player, to a bonus skin in multiplayer. With Mass Effect 2 and 3, you got an extra set of armor, and a really good weapon right from the start. These sort of bonuses are okay to have, because they don’t interfere with online balance. As soon as you start rewarding players with superior weapons simply for buying the game early, the developer is crossing the line.
