It was only a couple of weeks ago that Australian retailer EB Games announced that it would begin pre-orders for the special FIFA 12 Steelbook Ultimate Edition, which as many of you will know includes a copy of the game, a FIFA 12 steelbook, an exclusive size 2 soccer ball and 24 FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Gold Packs (4 Gold Packs per month for a total of 6 months).
Now we have some more good news for our Australian readers, as according to Hangie over on the esperino.com website, two more video game retailers have just revealed FIFA 12 pre-order bonuses of their own. First up is GAME, who is offering their pre-order customers access to two FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Gold Packs per month for 6 months, as well as a Tim Cahill Signature Poster.
However, the Tim Cahill Signature poster is an in-store only item, so you will have to head to your nearest GAME store to receive it. JB Hi-Fi pre-order customers on the other hand will not only receive access to 3 Gold Packs per month for a six month period, they will also get 3 months worth of subscription to the Inside Sport Magazine.
The FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Gold Packs are only available for those that purchase the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version of the game, while the subscription to the Inside Sport Magazine is available across all platforms (although it’s only while stocks last). The question that might be on some people’s minds now is what exactly are the Ultimate Team Gold Packs?
For those of you that don’t already know what EA Sports’ FIFA 12 Ultimate Team is, it is a massive online community where players can join more than 2 million FIFA fans and take on the challenge of building, managing and competing with their ‘ultimate’ football squad made up of some of the world’s best football stars. Fans can earn, buy, sell and even trade players with other Ultimate Team gamers from all over the world.
As for the FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Gold Packs, these are packs that contain a mix of 12 different items including players, stadiums, staff, managers, contracts, kits, balls, badges and fitness. The Ultimate Team Gold Packs consist of players that are rated 75+ in game, and include a rare item such as longer contracts and enhanced player attributes.
