Since then, Alpha Protocol has been delayed--it's now due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come June 1, 2010--and GameCrazy owner Movie Gallery, Inc. has declared bankruptcy and closed numerous stores.
Now, publisher SEGA and developer Obsidian have confirmed that those who pre-order the game from retailer Best Buy will net an exclusive "Stealth Weapons Pack" that includes the two weapons previously offered to GameCrazy pre-orders:
When players pre-order Alpha Protocol at Best Buy they will guarantee that their copy will have the code to download the exclusive "Stealth Weapons Pack." This pack contains the Hamilton Marksman High-Accuracy Pistol, the Samael Typhoon High Recoil Control SMG and a bonus arsenal of ammo and mines, all designed to make every agent's mission that much more fun â€“ and deadly for anyone that gets in their way.
In addition, GameStop is still offering pre-orders its "Exclusive Assault Pack," which includes the UC Regulator high damage shotgun and upgrade kit, Rittergroupen Grizzly high accuracy rifle and upgrade kit, 30 Rounds Phosphorous Ammo, 100 sub sonic rounds, 20 explosive grenades, 10 epinephrine spikes, and the like.
Thus far, the above pre-order bonuses appear to be limited to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions. Meanwhile, outlets like Steam and GameStop are offering a free copy of Gas Powered Games' Space Siege PC with a pre-order of Alpha Protocol PC .
