The lights are on
If you’re planning on picking up Final Fantasy XIII-2 when it hits stores January 31, you have a decision to make. Square Enix has revealed unique, retailer-specific pre-order bonuses.
Head over to GameStop to score an alternate costume for Serah. Lightning’s sister is playable for the first time in FFXIII-2, and you can continue her quest to find Lightning in a set of new duds.
Amazon is offering an exclusive boss battle against Omega in the coliseum. After defeating him, you can enlist Omega as one of your allied monsters. Read our preview of Final Fantasy XIII-2 to learn more about the monster-collecting feature of the game and other info.
Finally, Best Buy is giving away the Final Fantasy XIII Episodei novella to forward-thinking shoppers. This hardcover book bridges the Final Fantasy XIII and its sequel.

I think that I will be going with best buy
The Amazon preorder bonus sounds the best, but I usually go with GameStop. Any word on whether this game has import options, so if I played FFXIII on the 360, I would want to get this one on the same console?
Might have to go with Best Buy on this one. Although I think I'd want some more detail on each of these first.
Cool good sound interest :D
Torn between Amazon and Best Buy. The alternate costume isn't much incentive next to an optional boss/allied monster or a hardcover novella.
I hate when the different retailers get different pre-order bonuses. Grrrrr
cant decide, but regardless im getting one of em
Probably gonna lean towards Best Buy on this, but hey, it's a nice problem to have for this case
And this is why I don't like pre-order bonuses, because I want more than one of those things and I'm not sure if it would ever be released as DLC.
Easy. Ill buy the PS3 version from Best Buy, and then get the XBOx version from GameStop. There. done
Not a huge fan of preorder bonuses, but I still end up getting suckered into buying one. While I generally get my games at GameStop, I'm strongly considering getting the Best Buy one.
