View Full Version : Favorite pre-order item
6th Oct 2006, 12:25 AM
I wanted to ask you what pre-order breed you prefer? I usually get my orders from Amazon, and they're the only place with the purple pun, but the purple seems a little to "out-of-the-ordinary". I can get the bandit cat from the EA Store, but I just want both! It's so hard, so I wanted to ask you what's your favorite pre-order item.

My fave is the bandit cat.. as you said a purple pug is out of the ordinary and i like realistic pets, and the star dalmation's stars are purple, if they were black i would have chosen the dalmation but as it stands i go for the cat =D

I like the bandit cat too, I find it to be more creative than a pug with purple fur. I also tend to like cats a little more than dogs.
6th Oct 2006, 12:58 AM
I guess i should probably get the cat, but does anyone here know if EA Store takes money orders?
6th Oct 2006, 1:03 AM
Isn't there a star dalmation also?
6th Oct 2006, 1:04 AM
I'm getting the bandit cat. The purple pug and star dalmation are too unrealistic!
6th Oct 2006, 1:12 AM
Id love the cat,but my friends are giving me the pug and dalmation :)
6th Oct 2006, 1:17 AM
There's a star dalmation too
6th Oct 2006, 1:19 AM
I'm just buying mine from EB, so no preorder for me D:
But if I was going to, the bandit cat's pretty cool.
6th Oct 2006, 1:28 AM
No idea if it takes money orders, you'll have to have a look around during the buying process it'll say somewhere what payments they accept. Seems like most people like the bandit cat best heh

I think i'll probably get the bandit cat......so long for the guide. T_T Don't want to make to much of a hassle for my mom. But the purple pug is EXCLUSIVELY available for amazon, so that makes it special. Gah, it's so hard. EA Store doesn't have the guide available, so that's a bummer to, since i'm the type to get everything, it's a very hard decision for me.
6th Oct 2006, 1:37 AM
It's not hard, it's easy. Purple pug = really really ugly :D
6th Oct 2006, 1:38 AM
the star dalmatio actually looks cute, to bad it's not available in the U.S T_T I'm not sure if CompUSA takes money orders either.
6th Oct 2006, 1:42 AM
Just because its EXCLUSIVELY available doesnt mean you've gotta get it cos of that =p think logically.. what are you going to rather use in your game?.. And anyway i doubt it will be long before they all get shared around =)
6th Oct 2006, 1:45 AM
So far, other than EA STORE, amazon has free shipping, and amazon has free shipping. If i also get the guide, i should be able to get the whole thing 10 dollars off how the original price is in total. So far, all i know is that amazon is the one with free shipping AND the guide.
6th Oct 2006, 1:47 AM
What you need the guide for anyway?
6th Oct 2006, 1:52 AM
Another collection thing....
but i also read it.
6th Oct 2006, 1:54 AM
Fair do's heh.. If you want the guide then go for the amazon one, cos like you said you get the guide there and free shipping, and like i said im sure people will be passing around the different special ones so you'll still get them. You'll be busy making your own pets anyway!
6th Oct 2006, 7:08 AM
I thought EB/Game stop was doing the bandit cat? ..Was i wrong?? ;-;
6th Oct 2006, 7:14 AM
they are, it's play.com doing the star dalmation and amazon doing the purple pug
6th Oct 2006, 7:56 AM
I am getting the bandit cat, and I like it. I'd like the purple pug & the dalmation though. & I want the guide books for OFB & the original game. Not so much for pets, UNI, or Nightlife.
6th Oct 2006, 12:50 PM
I have ordered with the UK Amazon, so I think that's the purple pug, but to be honest I wasn't motivated by the pre-order creature. I have used Amazon loads of times before, so I know they are reliable, so that's why I went with them.
7th Oct 2006, 1:13 AM
Originally I wasn't planning on pre-ordering anyway (I have bad luck when it comes to mail ordering things... stuff that's supposed to take less than a week ends up taking a month 1/2) but my mom suggested it, since she could get it out of the way before she has to start buying x-mas stuff for the rest of the family, xD. I went with EBgames, the bandit cat looks better and seems like it was worth a little more effort than just turning the fur purple. I would've liked the star dalmation, but since they're purple too.. I dunno. I'm with everyone else, I like the more realistic colors.
As for the guide.. I'll probably buy it after I've had the game for a while -- if I get it at all. I bought the guide for the original game, but after I got the hang of things I didn't use it that much. I'd rather sit in Barnes & Noble and read it in-store instead of buying it and have it taking up room on my desk.

If you need a guide visit gamefaqs.com the best site of the universe for games...
7th Oct 2006, 2:26 AM
*sigh* If only, if only.... But since amazon is very reliable, and I have already have had a history with shopping on amazon, I'll probably go with that. But i want all three so baddly! Oh well, guess I'll stick with amazon. And to bad the dalmation is only in the UK....
7th Oct 2006, 2:39 AM
I've had good experience from Amazon too. Heck, there isn't a place I haven't had too bad a problem(other family members are another story entirely...).
On topic, as much as I like dogs with weird fur patterns, I....I'm afraid of dalmations a little. So I like the Bandit cat lots; I think it would go fetchingly (pun?) with one of my burgler sims. XD
7th Oct 2006, 8:54 AM
Thanks Discordkitty!! i was just getting parinod.. Seeing as thats where i pre-ordered BECAUSE of the bandit kitty.. =3
16th Oct 2006, 9:44 PM
Im very excited because for the first time ever we can get that bonus in germany too... i like the dalmation ver much!
16th Oct 2006, 9:53 PM
Target is now doing the star dalmation at least in my town I just like stars :p
19th Oct 2006, 5:12 PM

23rd Oct 2006, 10:25 AM
Does any one out there have the purple pug code. I got the star dalmatian from target and bandit cat from GameStop...I just need the pug. Plz and Tnx you.
23rd Oct 2006, 10:28 AM
there is an entire thread with a link with all the codes...
24th Oct 2006, 12:57 AM
it doesn't have the codes for the preorder animals. just for the collars.
24th Oct 2006, 2:22 PM
i think there is a site where you an download all the preorder things.
24th Oct 2006, 11:02 PM
Now that we know the unlock codes for purple fur you could always just make the purple pug yourself. Plus, once modders get comfortable with the game I'm sure they'll be able to recreate all the "special" pre-order pets. So I'd just go with the cheapest or most convinient option.
