About a week ago, Sean Cahil made mention of the pre-order bonuses for Final Fantasy XIII-2 depending on where you pre-order the game from.  GameStop has recently announced that PowerUp Rewards members will get an exclusive in-game weapon: the Genji Bow, which appears to be able to take the form of a sword or a bow.  Interesting weapon, though not the greatest of pre-order options, especially considering what places like Best Buy are offering.
