You know, people used to only pre-order games that were prone to launch day shortages. Now, it's more about earning pre-order bonuses, and Activision is offering three different sets for X-Men: Destiny.
Each pre-order bonus unlocks a unique suit and powers inspired by a notable X-Men character, which you can then equip on your playable character of choice.
Pre-order from GameStop and you'll get Havok's energy-based abilities and his TRON-esque costume. Amazon.com has Emma Frost's telekinesis and diamond skin, plus a white suit inspired by her costume -- albeit much less revealing. Best Buy comes in third with Juggernaut content, allowing players to dish out massive damage and stun enemies, though his red and orange costume is probably the least impressive of the three.
X-Men: Destiny will be out on September 27. Check the videos below for a brief look at each retailer's offerings.
