Preorder bonuses have become routine at this point, so it should come as no surprise that that Microsoft and 343 Industries are dangling a few enticements in front of gamers. After all, how can they crow about the numbers of people who have preordered the game if they didn't bother giving anyone a reason to do so. Take a look at some of the skins and emblems that you can unlock by plunking down your cash early.

The gallery below shows off the announced bonuses, straight from Microsoft. As they mention in the post, retailers are responsible for making their own announcements, so these incentives are at least publicly homeless for the time being. Expect to hear more details as stores plead their case as to why they should be the ones you turn to when it's time to preorder Halo 4 in advance of its November 6 release.
