Here’s an interesting take on pre-order bonuses: pick up a copy of Sonic Lost World from Amazon pre-release and you’ll be rewarded with 25 extra lives and an upgrade to the Deadly Six edition. The offer is valid in North America while supplies last and is described by Sega as “a safety net for the risk-taking Sonic player”. Meanwhile, at GameStop, pre-orders come with an i-game Omochao RC gadget, which will allow players to catch rings when playing in co-op.

Capcom has opened Steam pre-orders for Resident Evil: Revelations, the HD remaking of the 3DS title which is considered a little more old school than Resident Evil 6, which also arrived on PC recently.

The first tier has already been unlocked. Revelations will set you back $50.
Thanks, Capcom Unity.

If you pre-order Insomniac’s latest effort Fuse, you’ll score a couple of neat bonuses. Although most seem to be purely cosmetic – Hyperion Prototype skins for each of your characters and weapons – the last one is a team perk called Quickdraw which speeds up one-handed weapons use. Could be useful, although its the unique weapons powered by the titular fuse you’ll utilise the most I imagine. Visit the co-op shooter’s site for more information. Fuse is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2013.

PES 2013 has a spiffy steelbook case which will be provided for free to those who pre-order at GameStop in the US or EB Games in Canada. The limited edition casing comes in two flavours – one features an “homage to the UEFA Champion’s League”, and the other has Copa Libertadores. I’d love to show you some photos but Konami’s asset mirror actually hates me. There’ll be a new PES 2013 demo this week ahead of the full game’s launch in September on PC and HD consoles, with portable, PS2 and Wii releases to follow.

Cancel your retail pre-order because Capcom’s online store clearly has the best offer on Resident Evil 6. The publisher’s web frontage is offering US pre-orders a bonus umbrella branded with the Umbrella Corporation logo. Whether you are sheltering from the rain or the sunshine, everyone will know you belong to the most disastrously inept and totally badass conglomerate ever to not exist. Supplies are limited, so throw money at it here. Resident Evil 6 hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.
