Nobody likes to wait.
The pre-order bonuses that came with Red Dead Redemption (the Deadly Assassin Outfit, Golden Guns Weapon Pack, and the War Horse) will be available as downloadable content on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace next week.
…thing is, RDR came out almost a year ago. Will the same thing happen to L.A. Noire , set to launch next month, right around the 1-year anniversary of John Marsten's memorable Western adventure? Well, no, the pre-order exclusive bonuses won't take so long this time around, according to Kotaku :
"Apologies to everyone for having to wait so long to get these available as DLC as there were some unanticipated technical delays – for those of you inquiring about the expected availability of the L.A. Noire preorder bonuses as DLC after game release, those should become available as DLC much, much sooner."
But maybe they shouldn't do that. Doesn't it make the pre-order incentives that much less appealing? We all know most of those incentives become available as DLC at some point, and the sooner they show up, the less we care about pre-ordering, right? Well, of course…one set is free while the other isn't. Maybe that's all that matters.
