GameStop: Reserve Splinter Cell Conviction, get a shotgun

1:14 AM on 07.09.2009 // Brad Nicholson

GameStop has the exclusives, folks. Until supplies run dry, the bastion of civilization is offering a decent exclusive bonus for those willing to reserve a copy of Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell Conviction. It’s an “in-game” semi-automatic shotgun, which by the way, is better than those silly “out-game” shotguns.

The GameStop writers must have run into the same problem we have: there isn’t much to say about a semi-automatic shotgun. It’s a shotgun. It probably kills people.

“Reserve Splinter Cell: Conviction and receive a GameStop exclusive in-game semi-automatic shotgun,” the blurb about the bonus reads on GameStop’s official Web site. “If you prefer the rugged sophistication of a manual shotgun, but also enjoy the convenience of an automatic, then this is the shotgun for you! Available for online and in-store customers while supplies last.”

Those who reserve the title online will get an e-mail containing a download code. People who travel to their local GameStop will receive a cute card containing the digits to unlock the shotgun.
