I pre ordered 18 or so maybe 5 years ago through Amazon during the E3 sales. You don't have to pay anything up front and it takes years for them to come out. There are still at least 6 waiting to come out, RDR2 being one of them this month.

I've cancelled a bunch of them the closer they got to release because I was no longer interested.

It may not be normal, but taking steps long in advance could save you a lot of money on your hobbies, especially video games.
Yup, and even if you don't want the game, you can usually make a few bucks reselling it on release date, especially if you got an order in @ $50.

Or if you're feeling nice, resell it at cost and deal with the 100+ messages you get within a day.

Same price on Kijiji without tax
and the publishers don't get a cent, all so you save around $10. Not to demonize people who want to save, just pointing it out.

It's about the same price as on PSN(when you get taxed 15%), yes you won't get your nickles and dimes back from EB if you buy digital.
And it's locked to that account.....

Oh no, a physical product I can lend or resell, not locked to any account and doesn't require an internet connection (For AC at least).

If only the money went straight to the artists on RDR2... hate that the publisher gets money on that game considering recent developments but that pushes the conversation way off track :P

Amazon charges on pre-orders when they ship, not upon receipt just to be accurate. They also do (or did, haven't looked in awhile) price protect so if the price was ever lower between the time you pre-ordered and the time it was released, you end up paying that lower price.

Since there is no risk, it pays to pre-order anything you might want on Amazon. Just make sure to remember you did!

I usually sell my physical pre orders of any multiplayer game if my wife wants to play also since we gameshare on our consoles. I figure if I pre order for around $55 and sell for $75 day one, that knocks $20 off my digital making it $60.. so basically what I was going to pay for physical, except both of us can use it at the same time on our systems. So $30 a copy essentially in the end :)

I read this as both for $69.99.
One word would have fixed that.
“Each”

Someone bought the game from a store and is reselling it. The publisher gets money from the initial sale

Your title is quite misleading. Change it to “each” after the price.

Both for $69 would be a near retail miracle...

So at that point they have lost one sale, game will get sold many more times than twice most likely. I just wont do it to save $5-$10, doesn't make sense to me.
