OP  3/30/13 11:27:05 AM#1

In case anyone was waiting for this before purchasing, all 3 Steam rewards have been unlocked.   Kind of surprising considering this time last week it was only about 30% of the unlock.  I guess the beta weekend worked out well for Trion.

I imagine tons of people cancelled their preorder from other sites. Just like me :P.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

that was fast. I preordered from steam like 2-3 days ago and it wasnt even at first reward.

Was gonna hold off until I saw the most recent pre-order bonuses on Steam.  Was just too good to pass up.

What happens when you get 5 stars do you get a cookie? ;)

I kind of forgot what I was supposed to get with the $5 gamestop pre-order., I might have to cancel that and get it on steam because I dont think GS pre-order had as many goodies.TY op for the heads up.

Edit: GS pre-order only gets a weapon - The Sporeshot looks kind of cool but steams pre-order benefits are more and better.

Good looking out. Glad I waited. Now I can preorder on Steam and get a helluva lot better perks.

Hmm.....

Is there by any chance more to Grab? I ask because it says on the Bottom;

*Rewards will be backfilled once we reach the next level.

Does that mean there is still something more to get if more ppl buy it via Steam? As i am not an english native speaker it might have another meaning, can someone enlighten me by any chance?

Backfilled I think means that even if you pre purchased when only reward 1 was unlocked you still get all the rewards that where unlocked when released.

Considering the 30% tells you nothing without having actual number of pre orders needed and current I don't really believe those to be anything more than marketing ploy. Surprsingly it always hits "all rewards unlocked" few days before release, no matter the game. They just want you to put your money forward as soon as possible and get you to tell your friends to do the same.

Well then if thats the case then steam is even better for it so your conspiracy marketing worked.I am not much interested in Rift but I have a copy I can gift to a friend and still have more stuff than Gamestop pre-order would have gotten me.

I think the first tier requires substantially more purchases than the last two, and they could be manipulated to encourage others to take the plunge.

But, what beifts the gamer also befits Steam - we get all the perks and Steam gets more sales.

Irregardless, its selling well either way.

For how long is it 30 bucks on steam?

Not saying it's a bad deal, it was simillar thing with Bioshock:Infinite, just a bit shady business practice to lure in more pre orders. At least with MMOs there usually are betas that let you check game before while with SP games you more often buy in blindly into a promise (look - Colonial Marines)
