The SE stands for Signature Edition. It was a free "upgrade" when people pre-ordered before the 11 of January. That offer is now over and if you pre-order now, you get the standard pre-order package.

That includes the 2 items and the Black Emporium. That includes the Mabari war hound(not a companion, you just "summon" the war hound during combat, the mirror of transformation(aka change the physical appearance of the PC).

To be eligible to the bonus items, you need to pre-order the game from most outlets before the 8th of March 2011 which is the official release date of DAII. Of course, it could change at any moment but technically, even if you pre-order at 11pm on the 7th, you should be fine. I would try to do it in advance just to be on the safe side. :)

Black emporium,from what I have been able to gather is included with all new copies.

The sword and shield are generic(retailer wise) pre-order bonus's
EA store exclusive belt.
Play.com(I belive,could be wrong)has an exclusive amulet.Closer we get,I expect to see a couple more retailer exclusives...very,very lame on EA's part the way they have handled everything so far...sloppy childish amatuer job imo.

Wait. I thought the black emporium was in the signature edition. I can still get it if I preorder now through Steam?

Yep. Black Emporium, Lion of Orlais and Fadeshear are standard pre-order bonuses.

Will the prepurchase bonuses be available after the release date?

Unlikely. The ones for Origins weren't. Some of the Mass Effect 2 ones were, but only for the PS3. Since DA2 comes out on the PS3 at the same time as Xbox and PC versions, I'd say it's highly unlikely.

Only the sword and shield are pre-order bonuses as far as I understand. You get the black emporium and the other junk just for buying a new copy. Much like Zaeed and the cerberus network in ME2, I imagine.

Okay, yes, I'm mistaken. BioWare are being sneaky little hobbitses. The picture on their site says "Preorder now and recieve The Black Emporium". But the text below that says "Original purchasers of Dragon Age 2 will receive [stuff in TBE]". Sneaky little hobbitses. I approve. :D

Yeah, preordering from play.com gets you the Amulet of Ashes:

Pre-order Dragon Age 2 from Play.com and receive a code to unlock the Amulet Of Ashes. The Amulet Of Ashes is a ruined piece of charred wood hangs from its setting of half-melted gold. Holding it over an open flame, however, reveals its powers - in the flickering flames, the gold recedes into some former shape while the wood turns brown and reveals its grain. Heavy Fire Resistance, Adds to Fire Damage, Adds to health regeneration

You also get a different item by pre-ordering on EA Store.

As far as I know, the "Exiled Price" ($7 / 560 BW points) was free to users that pre-ordered before 12 of January, all the other standard DLCs are included in every pre-ordered copy.
