Gamestop's "Dead Island Special Edition" Has Co-op Preorder Incentive

Have you preordered upcoming zombie survival game Dead Island yet? If so, is the retailer Gamestop? If it isn't, you may want to reconsider your options. Gamestop has the exclusive rights to the Dead Island Special Edition which is a fancy name for a pre-order bonus. For a limited time and while supplies last, preorders at Gamestop will be automatically upgraded to the special edition which will score you the Bloodbath Arena DLC ($10 value) for free and before any of your friends. The DLC offers a new arena mode for the game available in both single-player and co-op. Players will battle off waves of zombies where each wave increases in difficulty (sound familar?). You'll be able to bring back the XP and items back to your campaigns, which is pretty sweet. Also provided in the DLC is the exclusive weapon, the brain wave bomb. For those who do not preorder from Gamestop, the Bloodbath Arena DLC will be available for purchase shortly after Dead Island's release. The Dead Island Special Edition will also feature exclusive box art and a blueprint for a special weapon, the "Ripper," which I'm told is the offspring of a baseball bat and a buzz saw.

What do you guys think? Enough incentive for you to switch where you're pre-ordering? Or incentive to go out and preorder?
