* Pre-ordering ''RockBand 3'' worked this way for multiple retailers: with Amazon, you got an exclusive in-game guitar, with UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}} you got $10 off on your next purchase and with Gamestop you got three songs for free that didn't become available for weeks otherwise ("Burning Down the House" by Music/TalkingHeads, "Shove It" by Music/{{Deftones}}, and "Blue Monday" by Music/NewOrder).

* Pre-ordered copies of ''LostOdyssey'' include an additional [[VisualNovel dream]] and an otherwise unobtainable accessory that teaches a GameBreaker skill, leading some to claim that only those people who preorder will get 'the full game'. In fact, the content in question is available as free [[DownloadableContent DLC]] on the Japanese marketplace, allowing all players to get the pre-order bonus if they create a Japanese XBLA account.

** They like providing either extra bonus levels or extra characters. It got messy with the Juggernaut in ''MarvelUltimateAlliance 2'', needless to say.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''
** Preordering ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' would give you a DLC which provided an early access to several weapons. Prior to the game's release, fans speculated the weapons were exclusively for those who preordered the game. As it turned out, the weapons are available late-game as they are sold by Chancellor Wellager in Drangleic Castle. Players who preordered the game can obtain them right from the beginning for each character and they can purchase duplicates of the weapons and [[DualWielding dual wield]] them without having to enter NewGamePlus.
** Preordering ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' would give you an exclusive dynamic theme, a handkerchief with the map of Lothric printed on it, and a digital soundtrack.
* 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.
