    Default Steam + Pre-order + Physical Copy + Australia = ?

    So, all four of the terms in my topic title have something to do with my question.

    I have pre-ordered the physical copy of Rift: Collectors Edition from Gametraders, a retail games outlet here in Australia, and was wondering if the game code that I receive on the box can be used in steam to be able to get the pre-order TF2 bonus items?


    Originally I was going to pre-order off Steam, however it was not available in the AU version of steam when I went to try. So I went to my local store and pre-ordered and put down full payment. Days later it was available on Steam with bonus items (I love bonus items!) and was a little annoyed.

    Looking forward to a response soon, thanks!

    Keep in mind that Rift isn't out yet and I haven't got the physical box in hand. Which is what pulls me apart, I also want the physical stuff as well >< Can I have my cake and eat it?

    Then i cant see your problem . If you have Pre- Ordered the game from a retail gameshop . why cant you just cancel your order ?
    At least here in norway if i Pre order a game from a gamesStore and i Cancel it i get my money back , since i can chose to pay 100 % for the game when i pre order it so i can just go pick it up when its in store or i can just pay like 10 % of the total amount just to kinda ``buy`` my pre order ticket so they kinda have a safety ,

    But there is a Bump in the road . Since if i want to get my money back if i want to cancel i have to do it at least 5 days before the game is In store . If i do it to late i will get the game anyway at least i wont get my money back so if i chose not to pick it up they can sell it again . but thats just plane stupid .
