XSEEDGames annouced that ALL first print copies, will come with a 44-page softcover art book and a custom outer box. So it doesn't matter who consumers purchase from, everyone gets the same bonus. However, if FutureShop offers a steelbook, the steelbook may get consumers to purchase from FutureShop, and not from the competitors.
This is what the Europeans got:

Would of loved a steelbook for The Lasy Story but I don't think its possible since its already so close to release date and so far nothing about it.
Usually they will announce it a month early so people can pre-order.

Sadly, we will not have an exclusive steelbook for The Last Story We tried to make it happen but due to lead times, and a few other factors we weren't able to.
Now, what I can say is that this year we will have about twice as many steelbooks as last year. A whole bunch will be announced over the next coming week.

Just an update, the official release date has been announced. It is August 14, 2012
Also, XSeed revealed a new pre-order bonus
I forgot to ask, is FutureShop going to have the soundtrack as a pre-order bonus too?

I emailed XSEEDgames if the bonus soundtrack is limited to the 3 retailers mentioned in the IGN article, they replied that the 3 retailers are just a sample of retailers and other retailers will get the preorder bonus. And said that we should ask other retailers directly if they will carry the soundtrack.
