If its available to anyone for any reason, worst case scenario is the crackers make it available to everyone.

Nothing to fret over for us but I would say it seems to almost be an invite to have the game pirated.

Far Cry 2 is going to be great. Those who have seen it/played it can testify to this. I plan on buying the limited edition.

I wonder if they made an extra 3 hours of gameplay for gamestop or if they cut out 3 hours of gameplay from the original game to make extra cash.

It's called an expansion pack only it's available at the games release through this limited time offer.

As for what I think, I think the missions will be on the retail disc but you will get a code from gamestop that will unlock them. So basically if you don't buy it from gamestop you are being screwed from experiance the whole game. Atleast thats what I am under the impression from seeing the commercial that said "reserve now and unlock 6 new missions".

Just wait till a week after the game is released and it'll be bundled with a $30 graphics card along with 17 other Ubisoft games and all add ons.

I'm sure that is what a lot of people think, which is sad. BioShock was on consoles too.
