NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams Pre-Order DVD

SEGA has just announced a surprisingly cool pre-order bonus for NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, launching next Tuesday in the US. Those with reservations will get a special “Behind-the-Scenes” DVD chronicling the creation of the game, the history of the series, and “an interview with the creator of NiGHTS”, among other things.

This looks to be quite the holiday treat for loyal NiGHTS fans! Better get your down-payments put in!

Bonus Sweatband with Secret Rings Pre-order

Pre-ordering Sonic’s debut Wii game in the US will bag you a free wristband sporting the blue blur, according to a new promotion by retailer EBGames.com.

The website offer can also be made in ‘real life’ stores, so those who aren’t exactly web-friendly can secure one in the comfort of bricks and mortar.

The band itself features a blue line with a generic picture of Sonic on it. Might look like someone from Spain made a knock off official band, but hey, free’s free so who are we to complain? Click the link in ‘More Info’ below to hit the EBGames page.

EBGames pens Sonic and the Secret Rings for a release date of 27th February 2007, but remember that dates on a retail website are not indicative of final or official release.

Cheers to our nameless tipster who popped the news in our inbox the other day. We’d buy you a beer, but well, we won’t.
