Default Far Cry 2 with 3 hours more gameplay only for Gamestop customers?

Want more variety in your AAA-game special editions? Of course you do. In a press release today, Ubisoft announced a new Limited Preorder Edition of Far Cry 2 exclusive to GameStop stores. This isn't the Limited Edition we reported on Friday; instead it's regularly priced and only available for pre-ordering at GameStop. The Preorder Edition comes packed with six bonus missions promising about three extra hours of gameplay, a fold-out map, and exclusive packaging. We have no word on whether this new packaging is the same wooden box promised with the other LE set.

In the same press release, the company reconfirmed the game's previously reported October 21 release date, so you'll know when to order by. So which is more important to you: a t-shirt, art book, and DVD, or three hours of bonus missions? Or if you preorder the Limited Edition, do you get both the Limited Edition and Preorder Edition contents? What's the end result of all of this special edition mixing and matching? Our heads just exploded.

This must be some kind of ****ing joke or something, Holding back part of a game in the retail version wouldn't make any sense.

Hmmm... "6 unlockable missions"... This tells me these will be downloads everyone has access to, but if yoiu preorder through Gamestop you get them for free, unless it says "exclusive" somewhere... I heard that for packaging, not the extra missions. They probably won't even be available on day one, and they probably will be completely redundant. That said, I'll go for... 'cause why not?

A number of games have done this recently. My copy of Civilization Revolution came with an exclusive code to get the first DLC pack for free, which still hasn't even been released. I beliebe Soul Calibur 4 did something similar with outfits.
