The really cool ones probably won't reach Europe, or [[PALBonus be standard there]]. Though on the other hand, the really ''really'' cool ones will probably [[NoExportForYou never leave Japan]].

* Pre-orders of ''The Orange Box'' from Steam came with a puzzle game called Peggle Extreme (effectively an Orange Box themed demo for Peggle Deluxe) and the ability to play ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' immediately.
** ''Team Fortress 2'' itself loves to CrossOver with other games by way of this trope - three times out of five, any given new release on {{Steam}} will award players who pre-order it by letting them use weapons or wear [[NiceHat hats]] taken from that game in [=TF2=].
*** Pre-ordering ''VideoGame/TotalWarRomeII'' on Steam gave you the usual {{Nice Hat}}s, however, it also added a "[[http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=11304 Romevision]]" mode for Mann vs. Machine--having the Hardy Laurel equipped (or playing with a player who has it equipped) reskins the robots, the Sentry Buster, the tank and the Carrier Tank to resemble ancient Roman society. As an interesting note, the robots' reskins are just regular items, as they had been available on the Mann Co. Catalog for a while.

* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' preorders came with an exclusive baseball bat weapon, plus those who preordered it specifically on {{Steam}} gained Bill's hat for all classes in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. This [[GameBreaker unbalanced the game a bit]], since if anyone on the team had preordered, the entire team could gain melee weapons where there otherwise would be none. Since the release of ''The Passing'' DLC, however, the bat is available to all players and spawns the same as every other melee weapon in the game.
