    well the thing is that when you usually preorder something, a little something else that has very little relevence comes along with it. Have you heard anything about what will come with brawl? if not, then i got an answer for you. according to futureshop, people who buy ssbb will get a white hat the says wii on it. yeah you heard me a hat.:lol: okay...i also said that anyone who buys ssbb gets the hat and it limited in quantity, so f you really want a hat for the start of spring get to the retailers early to buy ssbb. you people would go anyway...but just to start a discussion why do you think they chose a hat, out of everything a HAT?! I will post a picture of the futureshop flyer onece i find it or i might just scan it.

    well futureshop is doing this, but gamestop and ebgames always give something with the preorder.

    Will you still get the free hat if you go in one of them stores a couple of days after it's release and just buy it?

    Stores give things to people who reserve as incentives, probably because by selling all copies on the first date they can demand more shipments sooner and sell more games more quickly.

    With games like this one, there's no incentive needed...several people have reserved it since last year, and several more have done so in the recent months. Nonetheless, some stores give little bonuses, such as that hat. The Gamestops in my area offer a cheaper strategy guide. Depends on the store.

    I got a little Super Mario Galaxy coin thing. It's trash. Maybe it'll be worth something someday...

    Maybe not.

    I'm going to have to assume that the hat they're giving away is a promotion of Futureshop's, and not Nintendo's.

    If you hadn't noticed, most of the 'pre-order gifts' are given away with Nintendo [First Party] titles. Brawl is a second party title, and was not made by Nintendo. I would not expect anything if I were you.

    No offense guys but, I mean is it really that big of a deal if you get a hat with Brawl? Brawl is good enough for me, and anyway I wouldn't be caught dead walking past some random kids with a Wii hat on, I don't know about you guys though...

    Many would say you care too much about what others think of you.

    Just some constructive criticism.
