    I'm sorry, but this is amazingly bull. This means we don't get the code until October if you pre-order from Amazon.com. I might as well go pre-order it from Walmart and get the code right away!

    Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

    Whats the point of getting it with amazon anyway? Why not just walk up to gamestop? Also, don't buy from Wal-Mart... they censor all of the CDs so I would avoid purchasing electronics from them.

    If you even bought the game from Amazon its a bad idea considering they have to ship it to you which takes a good week or two. Gamestop is your best bet...you pre order and September 22nd you walk in bast all the people waiting and pay for it ;P

    Yes.
    I preordered it 2 months ago, and have been plotting this exact move since I did.

    Gamestop > Wal-Mart > Amazon

    Despite advertising the Johnson code, you cannot pre-order from Walmart. Therefore, you cannot get Johnson when buying from Walmart.

    Additionally, Walmarts are notorious for not getting games in on their release dates. Its happened to me several times. Gamestop never fails me.

    while you can still get release date delivery from Amazon, so I guess it only matters if you want to stay up till midnight, then go home and play it on a tuesday night...

    Amazon has a section for games where you can get it on it's release day. It won't be at midnight, but you'll have it on release day. That being said, I'd like to know where the OP is getting this information from.

    Who gives a ****? Boo-freakity-hoo, you don't get to play as Johnson for ten whole days... You can't even see yourself while your playing as him so the only difference you will experience is the lack of his verbal expressions. And I'm sure since everyone and their mother will be playing as Johnson, you will hear him constantly anyway. If you really cared about "being" someone while you play firefight, you should have pre-ordered from somewhere else.

    In the UK we don't have this problem. I pre-ordered with Play.com and they promise to ship the goods BEFORE release date to ensure that I get it as close to the release date as possible. I may even get it before the 22nd.

    How do Walmart "censor" CDs Dow? What do you mean by that?

    I did notice on the Amazon.co.uk ODST page, it said the Johnson code was emailed within the week of release.
    Hopefully that means I'll get it on the day, but I'm not all that bothered about an in-game character.

    Perhaps he means they only sell clean copies? Who knows.

    This.

    Not that i've pre-ordered ODST. It'll be FTL.

    However, Epic is correct, Play.com are awesome ... nearly every game i've pre-ordered from them has arrived on the day or the day before release.

    Play is great for preorders... Only reason i didn't preorder off them this time is because they didn't sell the Limited Edition..

    > And back on topic; Game.co.uk say this about 'Johnson':

    Wow, stop your crying, you took the lazy way out and ordered it sitting down and you will receive it at your front door. There's pros and cons with everything in life, in this case you can't play as a cigar-smoking African American. I have faith in you, you can buckle-up and get through this. -_-

    Screw walmart go with Target, thats where i got my legendary edition of h3 or w/e its called, and it isn't censored at all. I love Target its the ****. Oh btw game stop, bestbuy, play.com ftw, i have got games from all of them at one point and time and they never fail to deliver. And i have to agree Johnson will be the same as recon, every guy/girl in the world will be playing with it, thats why if i do unlock recon i won't wear it till next year when all the flame has died down.

    Is this only for UK? Because I live in the US and there is no information on the code being emailed.
