Saw this post on the main website and felt strongly enough on the issue that I joined the forums....I really dislike the idea of exclusive bonuses for different retailers, but I can see the marketing logic behind it. However, CA should release them for everyone at a later date! The fanbase of the Total War series seems like it's willing to pay for things like Kawagoe or the Napoleon preorders, and certainly I would. And particularly with Fall of the Samurai, I feel it would be really irritating to have 3 separate clans and then restrict access to them, or force a loyal fanbase to buy three separate copies just to have the whole set, so to speak.
The argument that they would not have been created except as exclusives has a point, but in creating them CA has also created a desire for them, so no matter that the customer isn't losing out on anything that should be in the game, there's always going be a nagging feeling that the game's somehow incomplete (at least, that's how I feel about it).
Please, CA, do what you did with Shogun 2 and release them as DLC at a later date!
Also, do the same for Kawagoe and Napoleon!

If this philosophy holds true, why isn't all the Napoleon DLC made available?

Hi there, Yes that is what i and many are thinking and truly want to buy a complete set box with all those 3 dlc special clans, and poster and sound track.. that is on Steam. I dont understand why they cannot make a huge Special ediditon box once again like they did with Napoleon Medieval and Shogun 2 etc etc?
Btw didnt understand the "Kawagoe" Have i missed out something lately Andyana?

There has to be some exclusivity involved for a pre-order incentive to work for us, the retailer and the customer. As you may have seen in the past, over time it is possible that exclusive pre-order content becomes widely available as DLC.

It is true.
That you decided to buy on Steam and didn't get the Imperial edition isn't CA or Sega's fault, is it?

its stuff like this that makes people pirate games, i want a full game, so i got 2 choices, buy the game 3 times over (90 bucks), or wait a day after release and get a pirate version with all 3 socalled bonus factions, which should have been in the game from the start, guess which one im going with, really dissapointed as CA is someone i belive is worth supporting, but i had enought with this DLC ****
