  1. I don’t know, i have it pre-ordered any way, but i don’t feel that bothered by anything there, the armour is kind of cool.

  2. I just want the full game, without anything missing that might make a difference to the gameplay. Which retailer will be selling that version?

  3. It’s just the standard preorder bonuses. Imo. I hope that ME3 will have more weapons and armour then ME2 as there weren’t that much variety. I know, i’m picking up on a minorish thing but i like my RPGS to have a wide variety of weapons and armour. :)

    Hang on, there’s no Reaper themed bonuses?! ME2 had collector bonuses. :O

  4. collectors edition for me all the way so should contain all of it

    • CE for me too if it has everything.

    • I don’t think it has these things, but it does have plenty of other delicious DLC. I have ordered mine from GAME, so I should get the best of both!

  5. This is what I hate most about this generation, we don’t get the full game.

    • If you think that a bit of armour and a few guns will seriously effect your gaming experience with ME3 then I would advise you dont buy it.
      I agree that the Arkham City catwoman stuff was bad, as well as the Chapter 13 out of Assasins Creed 2 but a few guns and armour wont make a jot of difference.

      • increased ammo capacity and amplified weapon damage sounds like it might make a bit of a difference.

      • No, but it’s annoying that you can never get the ‘full game’. You pay for the licence to use the game, but you get another gun and some armour if you buy it overpriced from a Game store. It’s annoying. I don’t mind good, well priced DLC, like the wipeout fury pack, but this is just pointless and annoying in my opinion.

      • “but this is just pointless and annoying in my opinion”

        This gen summed up perfectly.

      • I know what you mean! I feel well hard done by this gen of consoles imagine what the next gen is going to be like! The cons really outweigh the pros on this gen…..oh no wait its pretty dam good lol

        in all fairness… it’s 1 extra gun for PC users, and 2 items from pre ordering from game!!

        Also has no one realised that it quite possibly might be the big gaming shops round the world who might ask or who pay extra for this sort of thing (like Microsoft with timed exclusives)

        business is business at the end of the day, I know some people might feel hard done by because mass effect 3 quite possibly might give you many hours of enjoyment but now its ruined by 1 in game gun…..bloody hard life gaming this days ain’t it!

      • What? Weapons meant alot in ME2, even a single gun.

  6. Have the N7, or whatever it’s called, edition on pre-order at GAME, though one of their Aussie stores. I will have to check that the pre-order stuff is the same, usually I buy from EB because they have the better pre-order bonuses.

  7. With the variety of guns and armor already in the game, this isn’t enough to make me pre-order. If it came with a copy of the second game however…

  8. I was in Game today, and their inshore blurb was on about exclusive armour and a robotic dog! What’s that all about?

    • The Collector’s has a robotic dog.

  9. What the hell does N7 mean after all?

    • N7 is the denotement for special forces units, N standing for Special Forces, 7 being an elite unit. Something along those lines anyway.

  10. Can’t say I’m too bothred if I miss those.
