Champions Online pre-order choices aplenty

They’re going pre-order crazy with Champions Online this summer, offering four different incentives with four different retailers. 

Your choices, the usual suspects: GameStop, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Amazon. Depending on where you decide to drop your cash, you’ll get everything from special packaging to in-game items or powers. The complete list of what you can get and where, you can find after the jump. But regardless of where you pre-order the game, you’ll get accesss to the open beta test, which begins on August 17.

Champions Online ships this September. Make your choice wisely. Me, I’ll be the dude wearing the Insectoid Airfoil costume; the wings flap 90 times per second, OMG.
