Is this old news? If so, ignore. But I just found out, and I thought it was awesome. If you preorder PoR in GameStop or EB, there's a bonus: a 20th Anniversary Compilation CD of Castlevania music. Konami's CD bonuses are great. :)

That's fantastic, yet... it's EB and Gamestop.


Do you get the CD when you pick up the game or pay for the preorder? I've gotta hope for the latter here.
Or that the preorder bonus later extends to other stores. >_>

Serieus question: Can I (from the Netherlands) pre-order and import the game with that awesome bonus cd? Or do you have to live in America (and have to get it at EB or Gamestop yourself?).

Was just checking ebgames' website for confirmation, and I noticed they're taking pre-orders for a reprint of Dawn of Sorrow. If you haven't picked the game up yet, now's your chance.

Gamestop/EB needs to stop marking up their DS games. This game is only $34.99 on the bestbuy website. I don't know if the soundtrack is worth the extra $5.

It's Castlevania music. It's worth 5$.

Preordering this for sure. I can't wait for Portrait of Ruin.

You get the CD as soon as they get it in. It doesn't hurt to preorder, so you guarantee that the home office SENDS one of the bonuses to your store. Sometimes, if there aren't any orders, they don't bother to send the stuff 'cause it just gets thrown out. But they don't have the CDs in yet.

Castlevania isn't the only date that changed...

Contact moved up a week to Oct 17th
Yggdra Union has moved into Nov 14th
Super Robot Taisen is now Nov 21st

Everything is so goddamn compressed its ridiculous. Atlus might as well just delay those GBA titles until spring now.

Excellent. Then I'll preorder from EB/Gamestop, but actually buy the game at Best Buy so I don't have to support EB/GS and their markups in any way.

Super Robot Taisen and Yggdra union aren't even on the scale. They'll sell maybe 1000 copies each.

Extra $10, actually. Don't forget about the $5 BB coupons.

Whoa, I didn't know about this! Awesome news, totally preordering, even if it's an extra $5.00

On a related note, can anyone suggest why the "main content" portion of EB and GS' websites won't load on any of my browsers (Firefox or IE 7)? They both only show the left, right, and top frames, but not the main content that's supposed to show in the middle.

Main pages, direct pages, miscellaneous product pages. Nothing shows up. I even tried disabling NoScript in FF. Of course, I have no such extension in IE, so I didn't think that was it regardless.

Do they charge your account as soon as you pre-order, or when the item(s) ship? I've ordered before, but never pre-ordered.
