All I'm saying is that everything that is done by the game releases should be available to everyone. There is no reason to hold back any of that, except for business reasons, but I'm in the gamer crowd. Everything done after the release is the real bonus, and as such for example Raam's Shadow in GOW3 is just fine. As long as it's fully seperate and the main game won't have any "To use this, you need to buy the DLC". The weapon skin packs of GOW3 however were ridicilous, really made the game feel cheap and messy. As we don't even see our weapons much, I didn't care about them, but the notion of "Buy all weapon skins for $20ish" really bothers me. If this isn't stopped now it will just get worse. "You want a red coloured Ferrari? Pay $5 to unlock the color"
I don't see why pre-ordereds should be rewarded, even less so with in-game stuff, which is already done and could be available to everyone. What makes pre-orderers any better from those who buy at launch, or who want to see through the first couple of weeks whether the game is actually good?
