How is this a sneaky way of making money? The DLC is free and you don't pay extra to preorder.

Things like a preorder DLC should be IN the game from the start !!
Then it wouldn't be a preorder DLC:-)
And what would be the incentive to preorder?
AFAIK preorder numbers are pretty important for the dev/publisher in determining how retailers/distributors will handle their game, advertising, number of units they want etc.

To me preorder bonuses seems to target the people that would buy it on day 1 anyway to get them to buy a few days or weeks earlier and in that way help the devs/publisher.

I generally have no problem with preorder bonuses aslong as I don't feel that the bonus is needed to make the game a whole and full experience.
