Activision Offers Three Exclusive PROTOTYPE Pre-order Deals

Prototype-Alex MercerIn anticipation of the upcoming PROTOTYPE launch, Activision is offering three pre-order incentive packages. Each package includes collectors items that are meant to give you a head start in the open world action game where you play Alex Mercer, a shape-shifter who takes “You are what you eat” to a new level.

Gamers can score an action figure of PROTOTYPE’s anti-hero Alex Mercer along with a hint sheet to key you into prime spots throughout New York City. The flip side is a poster for those who aren’t interested in these critical hints. There’s also a limited edition concept art book from developer Radical Entertainment featuring weapons, enemies, and locations as well as illustrations of Mercer’s shape-shifting abilities. The final offering is the PROTOTYPE Comic from Wild Storm. The story lets you step out of Mercer’s persona to view the conflict through the eyes of two of New York City’s finest.

The hard part will be to figure out who to pre-order from to get the item you crave most. PROTOTYPE is due for release June 9, 2009 for the PC, Xbox 360 and the PS3. Follow the break for details on the pre-order offers from Gamestop, Hollywood Gamecrazy, and Amazon.

Hey Eva welcome to the show.

Much as I hate ever giving GameStop money, I think they would be my clear choice. Action figure > art books or comics. I mean come on, you cant dance a little book across your desk and tell it how totally sechexy it looked gunning down those mobs, and convince it that you should totally be their sidekick and you cant wait to rub his feet when…well you know.

Thanks much Shyfty. I’m glad to see GT back and thrilled to be part of the team.

I have to agree with you on taking the Gamestop offer. We have a rather nice collection of action figures it will go rather nicely with. Move Darkness, Diablo, and Asajj Ventress here comes Alex Mercer.

Pepe doesn’t get along well with others. He about killed the Fallout Boy puppet that followed me home from PAX last year.
