So you've followed all the press about your favorite video game for months; watching every trailer, reading every interview, playing every demo, until you finally get a release date. You're anticipating this game so much that you head on over to your local TropeCo game store to pre-order, because you ''have'' to be the first person to play this amazing game. But that's not the only reason you pre-order. Only the first shipment of 10,000 units is going to have the super ultra limited edition behind the scenes DVD and bonus cloth overworld map with limited-edition action figures not sold in stores! The game developers just lured you in with a [[TitleDrop pre-order bonus]].

* Preordering ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur V]]'' provided an early access to Dampierre (of ''Broken Destiny'' fame), who's later on available as Xbox 360 DLC. For PS3 otherwise, preordering is the ''only'' way to get him.

** The PC version of FFXV comes with [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/02/01/final-fantasy-xv-windows-edition-preorder-bonuses-detailed-benchmark-tool-released its own set of pre-orders]], and in order to get them all you need to buy the game three times: from Steam, from Origin, and from the Microsoft Store. Tough luck if you're not running Windows 10.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' came with a Cappy pin. In some countries (such as Italy), the Gamestop preorder also allowed to buy a Cappy replica at a lower price than the regular one.



** If you pre-ordered Platinum version, you got a free 6" Giratina figure. [=HeartGold=] version or [=SoulSilver=] version also had the pre-order bonus of either a free 6" Ho-Oh or Lugia figure or both if you pre-ordered both.
*** In Japan, if you pre-ordered them both, you'd also get an Arceus figure. Whilst game shops in the US and UK didn't do this, a special Trading Card Game set was released stateside that contained the Arceus figure.

* In the spirit of the trope, Kickstarter campaigns usually offer exclusive extras to backers that will never be available at retail. TabletopGame/TheOthers, for example, had two products (the stretch goal collection "Omega Team" and the "Men of FAITH") and two extra heroes for backers who went in for the Apocalypse expansion.
