Out of all of the decisions you'll have to make this year, the most urgent involves choosing where to preorder the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game in order to maximize your bonus incentive premiums. Different stores are offering different bonus items and the game's official website has a convenient list of all of your options. We already know about the Amazon.com Slimer Edition and the GameStop in-game costume bonus, but those are not the only things available. Wal-Mart and Best Buy have their own items up for grabs. Choose and perish!
Wal-Mart / Sam's Club: EXCLUSIVE Gold Proton Pack: Your player is equipped with an exclusive Golden PROTON PACK. Made of solid gold, this is the portable, unlicensed nuclear accelerator of the rich and famous. This feature is available in single player and multiplayer modes.
Best Buy: Reserve Ghostbusters the Video Game and receive this pre-order option of replacing the default rookie likeness with one of our exclusive characters. With all their exposure to the paranormal, it was only a matter of time before the Ghostbusters brought the paranormal onto their team. The Exclusive Ghostbusters GHOUL replaces “the rookie” regularly seen within the game with a grave robbing ghoul. This feature is available in single player and multiplayer modes.
The golden proton pack is neat, but I'm going to stick with my Slimer Edition preorder. The ghoul character seems kind of pointless to me. I can't help feeling that there are some awesome bonus items that are not being offered. Where can I preorder to get a Twinkie thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds? What about a dancing toaster (hand insurance not included)? How about a copy of Venkman's book, Magical Paths to Fortune and Power? Atari and the various retailers behind the preorder promotion are leaving money on the table here.
