We hate them, but the publishers and retailers seem to like dangling unique shiny prizes in from of gamers faces in order to entice them to buy games from establishments they normally wouldn't frequent. For instance, if you were one of those GameStop haters you might miss out on a lovely replica Chimera-tooth necklace, as seen around the neck of Resistance 3's protagonist Joseph Capelli, as well as a five level head start in online multiplayer. Do you really want to miss out?

Fine then. Take your money to Wal-Mart instead, where a preorder earns you five special multiplayer titles exclusive to America's favorite place to shop for action figures in the middle of the night like some asshole.

Or screw physical retail and go through Amazon.com, where you'll unlock the No. 60 Air Fuel Grenade in the game's single-player campaign for putting your money down.

You can even buy the game in Canada or other U.S. retailers, gaining a Black Ops multiplayer skin for your trouble.

Now where are you going to shop? Did I mention Best Buy also offers a victory dance emote for multiplayer? Is your consumer loyalty on the verge of breaking yet? Don't answer yet, you have until September 6 to figure it all out.

I'm guessing now that they'll have a special edition that includes all of these items, like they've already done for the EU market, and Sony already did with the inFamous 2 Hero Edition (that I just preordered from Amazon last night...thank you $20 Portal 2 credit for making that slightly less painful).

They probably just don't have the details for a Special/Collector's/Survivor's Edition worked out yet for the NA market.
