Amazon is great if you don't want your game before release day.

Agreed. I try to support smaller biz if possible, grabbing from bestbuy or GameSpot being the underdogs although both have let me down in the past

Why? I always do and just cancel the order if the game has terrible reviews.

Excellent way of locking in the best price on release usually.

What's the point of preordering in today's world that has digital downloads? And for a measly discount.

It only makes sense if you absolutely must own a physical copy on day one, or you can get a substantial discount.

You can sell, lend or trade it afterwards if you don't want to keep it.
With Digital downloads it will take hours before you can start a game due to having to download 60-120+ GB of data for most high production value games.
Installing from a disc is much faster. Games like Black Ops Cold War take up 200 GB of space.


Even with two PS5s, both of my systems are full and I use a 1TB SSD external SSD to install last gen PS4 games between them.

The Amazon pre-order will likely come late and it does not seem to have the pre-order bonuses that other places offer.

For me personally, I have a few reasons why I pre-order games.

But the most "RFD-relevant" reason that could apply to others, though, would be for Amazon's pre-order price guarantee. I have a few examples from over the years, but one that quickly comes to mind is Xenoblade Chronicles X. I had it pre-ordered on Amazon for something like $55-60 (during an E3 promo).

Randomly one day, Amazon price matched some price error from a retailer and I saw it in my order details for $15-ish.

The price shot back up to the correct price at some point because when I went to look at the game's product page, it was showing the regular retail price. But by then, my pre-order already had the "price guarantee" happen for it.

When the game's release date eventually came, I did get the game for the $15-ish plus tax.

Ever since then, I pre-order from Amazon the games I am interested in getting just in case. And ever since then, I have randomly gotten some games priced lower than their launch price due to Amazon's price guarantee.

I like physical copies too, and I still buy them, but I have patience, I don't have to absolutely get it on day one. And for most games you can still get a physical copy within the first couple of weeks at MSRP. And for the must-get-on-day-one and don't mind digital, there's that. I understand preordering for products that are supply-constrained where you have no other option to get it if it runs out, but games rarely falls into that category.

It's your choice obviously, I'm not gonna judge.

Funny that this is getting downvoted for not a good price, yet this site goes ballistic for regular priced Nintendo games

This game looks fantastic but keep in mind that this is first person only, they did away with the 3rd person view (for now). For that reason only, I will not buy it.

If pre-order price guarantee is a deal then RFD must be going on a drought for gaming deals.

Fair enough, but hey, if it were $10+ dollars off, I'd bite.

Btw, the PS4 version is $72.28.

Knowing Amazon you won't get your game on Day 1. Regarding PS5 version, not sure if saving $3 is worth it to get the game a few days late.

I still remember that Xenoblade Chronicles X deal with fondness...
