Since the code for this separate downloadable game will be sent out on the15th of may, can't i just pre order the game get this code and then cancel my preorder after i have downloaded the game? or am i missing something here?
Here in the U.S., we are getting our codes from GameStop (not Amazon), which is the only place we can get the Sniper's Challenge from after we pre-order the game. The unlock code is sent out by e-mail (for online pre-orders) or printed on the receipt (for in-store pre-orders) that require input on the redem code section.
NOTICE: There are those who wish to pre-order the game just to obtain the unlock code for the mini-game and then cancel the pre-order. While the in-game unlocks, abilities, and stats carry over into the actual game itself, GameStop has stated that a SECOND unlock code will be required to do this. This SECOND unlock code will only be sent out when the game releases. So if you pre-order and cancel, you don't get the SECOND unlock code to transfer your hard earned extras from Sniper's Challenge.
I'm not sure if this will be the same in the U.K., but keep it in mind. BTW, Sniper's Challenge is VERY good and is worth the pre-order if you did not know...
