    I don’t really understand the desire to preorder.

    Unless you’re ordering a special edition, the shyt isn’t gonna be sold out. And even if it is sold out, you can just buy digital.

    Pre orders were a big deal before digital got big. I'll never forget waiting in line to get GTA5 when it came out and everyone was talking about the firstthing they were ginna do in game and I said 'I'm shooting all the laws on sight.' Everybody started laughing talking shyt about the laws, and this police officer had to go sit in the car after that cause we was shytting on the laws in the line. :russ:

    That was at the Gamestop which was the last Funcoland in Dallas. Damn I'm getting old bruh. :flabbynsick:

    You usually get some in game bonus for preordering.


    I never understood preordering so far out though. Unless it's a new console.

    glad to see Metroid at the top
    hopefully it makes a lot
    Arceaus being lower than shining diamond is not surprising but I hope more people support it

    This perspective can only come because I understand my level of privilege but I preorder months in advance. I take my discretionary funds and just put it in gamestop because honestly, its what I've always done so it is an ingrained habit. Since I like my physicals, it just works. I don't sweat the money that's there because it's spent on games now or later. It just is what it is.

    Privilege and affordability isn’t really an issue.

    I just don’t see any practical advantage vs just walking in and grabbing it on release day.
