Red Dead Pre-Order Bonus Voting Begins

True to their word, developer Rockstar and retailer GameStop have opened the voting to determine which bonus outfit GameStop pre-orders will get in Red Dead Redemption.

The Red Dead Referendum, as they're calling it, presents potential buyers with three outfits--Savvy Merchant, Deadly Assassin, Expert Hunter--that grant special bonuses, such as half-price guns and ammo. Whichever proves most popular will then be available for pre-ordering folk to unlock through some sort of in-game outfit challenge. nope

"Anyone can vote up to once a day," writes GameStop. "Ballot box stuffing is encouraged since each vote counts as an entry in a sweepstakes to win a trip to tour the old west on the historic Grand Canyon Railway or daily prizes of $100 GameStop gift cards."

Developed by Rockstar San Diego and currently at the center of allegations over poor working conditions, the open-world Western hits PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 27.
