We hope you're the type that saves your receipts, because if you're not, then this news may upset you. Today, the gaming retailer GameStop
announced that pre-orders of Duke Nukem Forever
from long ago are still valid. They are valid, yes, but don't think you can just tell them that; GameStop is expecting to see pre-order receipts so they can validate your long awaited pre-order. Also, for those long awaited pre-orders, fans will receive Duke's Big Package, the pre-order bonus that features Big Head mode, in-game t-shirts, and other extras.
With a long-anticipated release like Duke Nukem Forever, we encourage customers who pre-ordered more than a year ago to verify their reservation with their local store prior to launch. Provided the customer has a receipt, we will honor even those pre-orders taken long ago. -GameStop
