Activision Locks Paintball Mode in GoldenEye, Now GameStop Exclusive

What used to be earned or just free is now a pre-order bonus.

In the original GoldenEye 007, you could earn Paintball Mode by beating the Dam on Secret Agent in less than 2 minutes and 40 seconds or just entering the cheat code. In the Wii remake, it was unlocked right from the start. But for the upcoming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, it's now been turned into an exclusive GameStop pre-order bonus, as reported by GiantBomb:

For online multiplayer, paintball is exclusive to Gamestop consumers, you can’t get it without an unlock code. It’s still available as an offline mode for Mi6 Ops missions.

This is a minor gripe, for sure, but why lock content that's already on the disc and already in the original? Why not lock content that's actually extra?

Stop stepping over all of our memories, please.
