Bonus merchandise for pre-orders or early customers?

Right, so I've heard about a few shops/sites giving out between 500 and 1000 MS points to people who either pre-order it or are the first ## of customers in the store. But my local gameshop is offerering something I haven't seen before:



The first 500 customers either get a plate like this, OR, 500 MS points. Haven't seen these before. Are there other shops that are giving these out?

Also, for those interested where to get one, its at The Gameshop, located in The Hague, in the Netherlands.

Obviously I'll take the plate over the 500 MS points, as I could just buy those later. The plate is something to collect.

Thats pretty cool. I'd love to have that plate. Tomorrow, I'm just going to ready some snacks and drinks. Then after I wake up on monday morning adn get ready, I'm going straight to the store and I'm going to camp out in line all day until midnight. I'm going to be soo pwned if I get there and theres already people there. I want to be first in line hella.

that's cool, i doubt Play.com will do anything like that, they are very, you pay us we send, end of transaction. i've been a customer of thiers for years, not once have i ever got a "Hey, you're a dedicated customer, here have a £5 voucher" or something.

You're lucky, i would like a nice GTA Collectors Item...

Some of the first people at Future Shop ( Best buy is parent company ) will get free foam baseball caps with a "IV" etc on them, preference goes to people who have a pre-order though.

My GameStop called me earlier and told me to be there by 6pm on Monday, so I'm curious of what for.

Hmm..
I pre-ordered and got a 'Christmas pack' containing a flEEca credit card with $10 value, a handful of postcards, a DVD with GTAIV stuff and some stickers.

I was one of the first so-so many to pre-order, so I got a poster, some extra stickers, a promotional box and this GTAIV Lanyard with (I think it's self-printed) a tag saying 'I pre-ordered GTAIV first and all I got was this lousy lanyard'.. lawl, sounds a bit familiar.

I went by to pick up the Strategy Guide yesterday - Yeah, maybe it's illegal to sell it; but I don't care - and I'll be getting my game on Tuesday. Special Edition of course.

I guess every spot has it's own collectibles.

Oh dude, really?
Rip one for me, I'll pay you for it.
The Hague is not that far from here.

Reason I asked was cause you normally hear about quite a lot of promotions, but I haven't seen the licenceplate anywhere else before.
I'd find it hard to believe that a small gameshop in Holland was one of the few who'd actually have it.
