how good is Amazon at delivering preorders on release dates in Toronto? I preordered smash bros last week and it releases next week. How likely is it that I will receive my game on time?

My experiences in Calgary have varied substantially. From 8pm the day before release to three days late. We have same-day delivery just like Toronto, so probably similar.

+1...huge YMMV. I've had arguments with Amazon CS over this...but when the E3 promo bonuses were out I sort of had to bite my tongue.

99% of the time I get my game on release date before 3PM. The only time I've not gotten a game on release date was the whole red dead redemption 2 fiasco

Last time I preordered a game was BOTW from Amazon and it was delivered before noon on the Friday it released. I'm not a prime member and most things ship within a couple days.

So far my experience with Amazon preorders
Horizon - Day 1 - Good
Mario Odyssey - late for a weekend - Bad
God of War - Day 1 - Good
Spiderman - Day 1 - Good
RDR2 - A whole week - Terrible

95% of my pre-orders from Amazon over the years have arrived on release day. Walmart is hitting 100% at the moment. Best Buy, well let's not even talk about them.

Their support is mixed on it. One person was like you'll have smash bros on launch another said they'll ship on launch day getting it to you the next business day :/
