Hm it annoys me when they release things in a pre-order with no other way to get it..

And the funny thing is - the content is already on the disc, but locked. They give unlock keys only for people that have pre-order..... ugh.

Hm any way to maybe unlock it without pre-ordering?
If they was to release it after on the marketplace i'd be all cool with it, But when you have to buy it before its even out i think it takes the piss a little, And a knife too... Knifes are like the Best things in stealth games, they cant just not give you a knife.

Was at gamestop yesterday and they convinced me to preorder. I was getting it day of release anyway so I didn't care. But they told me there was nothing exclusive with pre-ordering. I doubt gamestop wouldn't have the pre-order knife. Maybe I should call them and ask.

If I find out they don't have the knife code and someone else does, is it possible to cancel my preorder from them? I've never pre ordered and canceled so I don't know. Thx for any answers.

I don't see what your angry at, if you want the damn dagger then pre-order the game. You can judge your opinions off metacritic or some form of review, they always come out earlier than the release date.

If you think one item will ruin an entire game then your wrong. :)

I did not say i think that, I said knifes are the best things in stealth games, Which they are This isnt exactly a big stealth game but for the parts it is a Knife is needed, If not a silenced gun..

And not everyone can pre-order games.. For Loads of reasons, Not everyone can just go out and pre-order a 30-40 game.
I cant pre-order it because

1. Dont buy anything near christmas
2. Dont have any money spare
3. Would like to see what people say about it before spending money on it.

Are they supposed to e-mail it to you? I was hoping on getting it when I pick my copy up at the store it self.

They normally do, but they haven't on this occasion, so Ive dropped them an email.

Also cant even DL the boobies as its comes up with an error much like Wallace & Gromitt did when they fooked up the XBL upload.

No knives or boobies makes me sad ;)

You do or don't have a way of pre-ordering through gamestop?

Just got Knife code through from game, not sure if there just mailing them late or its because I chased them.

So if you ain't got your code start hustling them.

Midnight Show DLC is still broken though.

As some already have noticed the Midnight Show is already on the marketplace now for 240 Microsoft Points. I think not to long and u find the unlock code for this knife aswell on the internet. Or even as a download on xbox-live. I remember that there were codes later on for Mercenaries 2 aswell.

Im also waiting for my code from Game UK.

I am considering not playing the game until I get it. Im busy enough with Rogue Warrior, Avatar and COD classic

Give GAME a prod and they'll sort it straight away.I got mine on the release day no problems and always have done.To be honest though,the knife is nothing other than aesthetic.It's merely a different stealth kill.It doesn't affect anything other than being a bit more brutal.

Just curious about the exclusive bonus Knife DLC. I've entered the code and its confirmed its use. Does the item in-game become something I find or purchase?

BTW I too pre-ordered with GAME but brought it from a retail store and they gave me a code card for the DLC. (As they had done with HaloWars and GameStation had with Brutal Legend)

As soon as you do your first stealth kill it's unlocked automatically.Just hold down Y and you'll stab them rather than do the beat down kill.

Ah I'll look out for that. Spent most of last night's play session in disguise and doing the elbow smash to the neck take-down from the back.

Update: Would seem that hitting X does grab into a knife stab to the neck/throat slit take-down
