Some pre-order incentives just aren't incentive enough.
But what if you got something unique? As spotted by a NeoGAF user , pre-ordering Bioshock Infinite at GameStop will net you a free Flash-based puzzle game called Bioshock Infinite: Industrial Revolution .
This is entirely separate from the main game and appears to have been generated for the express purpose of this deal. Basically, you'll become a factory worker in the intricately designed Bioshock Infinite universe, and you'll have to complete puzzles that support one of the world's two primary factions. There will be a grand total of over 50 levels to conquer and it should be available to anyone who drops their deposit at GameStop. You know, if you think about it, this could be a glimpse of the future…
Think about it: A social gaming tie-in of sorts; little off-shoots of major titles available for your smartphone or tablet if you pre-order big games. For instance, what if we got some bite-sized Flash-based racing game for Need for Speed: Most Wanted ? Or how about just a few levels of smaller-budget shooting fun with Call of Duty: Black Ops II ? …okay, the latter doesn't need any additional promotion, but you get the idea.

Definitely pre-ordering this but for other reasons, this "incentive" is about the lamest I've ever heard of. Give me a crazy gun or new power over this junk any day.
Exactly! At least we should get exploding rats? Raging samurai sword-wielding monkeys? A zombie horse like the one from the trailer? Ooh, the possibilities… lol
Maybe a Little Sister skin for Elizabeth 🙂
Or… you know, a swimsuit. What?
I haven't preordered waiting for the incentives announcement and it's only a flash game? I hope Best Buy or Amazon has better incentives…
I'm still gonna buy the game anyway but it's a pretty weak incentive to me.
I would take a Big Daddy plush instead……. (not that it would be for me…its for my sister…honest!)
You Didn't mention the awesome board game being designed by Plaid Hat Games. 😀
