Glow-in-the-Dark Condoms with inFAMOUS: Second Son Pre-Orders?

GameStop Italy was previously offering fluorescent condoms and Red Bull as a Infamous: Second Son preorder bonus.


Back in the day, preordering was a way to ensure you’d get copy of a game on release day.  With the rise of digital downloads and publishers creating more than enough copies, preordering has become less about avoiding sellouts and more about the extras. There have been some worthwhile bonuses offered over the past couple years, but GameStop Italy has taken preorder perks to a new level of strange. 

Italian Gamers who preorder inFAMOUS: Second Son will be receiving special edition fluorescent condoms and two cans of Red Bull. That’s a right – glow-in-the-dark condoms.

Roughly translated from an ad on the site, the bonus promises a “fill of energy for an explosion of pleasure!”

It’s hard to say how the offer even relates to inFAMOUS: Second Son, but maybe it’s inspired by Delsin’s neon powers and superhuman abilities? 

Seems like a bit of a stretch. 

Unfortunately, it looks like the unique offer is no longer available. You can still preorder the game, but you’ll have to take care of the condoms and Red Bull on your own. inFAMOUS: Second Son will be released for PS4 on March 21st.

    As one of my friends on Facebook so eloquently put it: "The condoms are to ensure the game doesn't have a third son."

    Well played, sir.

    I like the addition of Red Bull. Somehow makes it all that much more absurd.

    Hi: I like the level of research you had to do for this article. The subject matter is funny, yet somehow important to gaming with your best girl. Best girl because she likes to game.

    I'm not sure you commented on the article you intended to comment on Oracle? This seems a bit out of context.

    I would say something horribly inappropriate and offensive like, "well, it's Italy," but.........I won't. ;)
