So I pre ordered Blackops 2 about a week ago and tonight went to go in and put my promo code in and I keep getting "Promo Code Invalid". Gamestop is no help on the phone. There are no zero's or o's in my code...so no conflict there. This is extremely frustrating because it says on reciept deadline is on the 12th. I could care less about the trip giveaway chance and the other stuff. The main question is does this code have to be redeemed to be able to get the bonus nuketown 2025 map? Some people say that all pre orders come with the dlc in it, as in the game has a download code for the map. Gamestop makes it seem like the only way to get this map bonus is to register before the 12th with thier promo code that isnt working. I looked this problem up and tons of people are getting the invalid promo message. So ultimately is the whole gamestop code in effect not needed because first batch of copies will have the bonus DLC? Info appreciated.
The old Gamestop trick, also known as lie dead in your face. Always check online for stuff first, Gamestop doesn't even know you get a free digital copy of Crysis with Crysis 3. Most of Gamestops "pre-order" bonuses are packaged in the game, they just say things to pad their sales because employees can actually be fired for not bringing in enough pre-orders or taking too many cancels. Gamestop is literally a physical in your face telemarketer, don't meet numbers? You're fired. Employees live in fear of that so they will lie, cheat, and bribe customers to get numbers.
