Well, this is a first: Sega is asking you to determine how you plan to play Alpha Protocol , because that will send you to the correct retailer to place your pre-order. No, really.
As this "Espionage RPG" is all about choice, Sega figured they'd give you a jump on the decision-making process. You can pre-order this highly anticipated title, set to launch on October 6, from either GameStop or Gamecrazy, and each retailer is offering very different incentives. If you're not into stealth and patience and would rather blast your way through the game, head to GameStop, where you will receive some seriously heavy weaponry. If you'd rather take the Sam Fisher approach to the adventure, go to Gamecrazy, where you will find neat-o stuff like tranquilizers and sound suppressors. As just announced over at Sega's official blog , here are the detailed Alpha Protocol pre-order goodies for both retailers in question:
GameStop: Assault Pack
Gamecrazy: Stealth Pack
Of course, if you only have one of these stores close by, you don't really have an option. But we still think it's a damn cool idea. 😉
