Microsoft forcing pre-orders?

1 min read


This is a bit of a nasty turn of events.

According to, Microsoft is withholding content from people who do not pre-order the Lost Odyssey game.

Basically if you pre-order the game you get two codes which you then redeem for a cut scene about your past, and since the hero is an amnesiac this is quite important, and the second code upgrades your player to make him better at defending.

Now while I am a huge fan of pre-order freebies I do think they are possibly taking it to far when they are adding in pieces of the game as a freebie. Downloadable content is bad enough in some games and this is just plain wrong.
