Would a preorder achievement encourage you buy more games or the console?

Just wondering. I know it would do nothing for those that don't care about them. I would probably still buy used, so I wouldn't get them.

F*** no.

Seriously, who would be brain damaged enough to consider that?

Well it would go along with a preorder bonus and it would be a way to show off all the games you preordered. Just a thought.

Would encourage me to not bother going for plat/100% on that game.
Definitely wouldn't encourage me to buy a game I was on the fence about,
It would also make me refuse to buy any type of DLC for that game.

Achievements/ trophies are the most pointless thing to happen to gaming.

I'd take it would just be like those challenge achievements. Zero points and they don't show under the main achievements unless you unlocked it.

It would work well that way.

Even pre-order bonuses are a turn-off for me personally. Means if I'm on the fence about a game, decide to wait a bit after release, I'll never have the 100% experience of the game.

Sorry if that first post seemed a bit angry, it's just that I feel that too many companies are adding these completely unnecessary 'optional' things that make games feel incomplete and unattractive.
