Gamestop to fulfil elderly Duke Nukem Forever pre-orders

Tuesday, 31st May 2011 02:04 GMT By Brenna Hillier

If you have a twelve year-old Gamestop receipt for a Duke Nukem Forever pre-order, go ahead and cash it in. It’s still good.

Gamepro asked the US retailer if it intended to honour older pre-orders, which could be up to fourteen years old.

“We encourage customers who pre-ordered more than a year ago to verify their reservation with their local store prior to launch,” Gamestop replied in a statement.

“Provided the customer has a receipt, we will honor even those pre-orders taken long ago. At this time, we expect that all pre-order customers will receive Duke’s Big Package at time of purchase, regardless of when the reservation was made.”

The Gamestop-exclusive Big Package includes three downloadable packs – extra health, big head mode, and T-shirts.

Gearbox had asked retailers to honour pre-orders for the oft-delayed game wherever possible.

Duke Nukem Forever releases on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early June.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    How awesome for Gearbox even though I would bet majority of those consumers don’t that that receipt. Still a nice gesture.
