Recon helmet

Hey everyone. im sure your all over Recon questions but i got one =/

i pre-ordered through a website used by my local video store. i was able to get a pre-order through them as i dont have a game distributor like EBgames in my area.

it clearly stated ‘pre-order’ and after ordering 2 copys i was disheartened to find no Recon code.

Anyone know if i was simply unable to qualify for Recon and i wasted the extra money it costs to re-order

or have i somehow missed the code? i understand its on a seperate slip of paper.

Im Australian BTW.
