Transformers Pre-Order Codes Fetching Crazy Bids On eBay

Transformers: War for Cybertron doled out three exclusive codes with preorders through three different retailers - unlocking Jazz, Shockwave or Demolisher for play. Some people must have confused "exclusive" with "rare", as eBay bids on these codes have touched $US100.

Demolisher (pictured), unlocked with the Amazon preorder, got a bid as high as $US105 in an auction ending Monday, according to GamesRadar. (Not coincidentally, a code put up for sale since GR's post has an asking price of $US125. And zero bids.) Currently he's getting bids between $US29.99 and $US70.

That's still a hell of a lot of money for something that could, in six months' time, end up as a freebie or a 400 point download. But if you really have to Buy It Now!!! knock yourself out ...

Transformers DLC Codes are Going for More than $US100 on eBay [GamesRadar]


    I kind of expect the pre-order characters to be DLC soon. I also expect some more bots to be included in the patch coming soon. As they show designs for a 3rd Scout Car and 2nd Leader Rig for the Decepticons; and a 2nd Tank for the Autobots im the concept art.

    there are already 3 scout cars?

    This is just stupid. Transformers isn't WoW where you live vicariously through your character/mount/in-game pet. It's just a skin you use for a 15 minute game that doesn't change gameplay one iota.
