Pre Order GTA Chinatown Wars and Get $10,000

Yes you will get $10,000 for pre-ordering Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS from GameStop but it will be in the form of in-game money.   Also if you pre-order from GameStop you will recieve immediate access to all in game weapons.

What every happened to giving those who pre-order a exclusive in-game skin or maybe a collector token?  Whatever happened to working for those perks?  I think this might be just a little to much to give for pre-ordering.  Why not just play the game and unlock the weapons or rob and complete missions to make your money.  I am all for free stuff when I pre-order but is this one a little too much and give those who pre-order a unfair advantage?
