Pay now and you can get your virtual promise for the item, maybe/probably when it comes out, eventually...

Everybody please do me a favor and stop preordering everything if it is digital!!! Why are people paying for stuff months in advance? I can log into my XBOX, and provided the service is working, buy my content right then and there? Why part with my cash until I actually want something. Now, if they'd start giving me discounts for preorders the earlier I buy it, then maybe...

Same thing with Amazon, I got an Ad for a book I'd be interested in reading, alas on closer inspection, it would be delivered to my Kindle, in January, of 2016....

So who's just shelling out their money? How can I convince you to stop so companies will give me a better incentive to buy their product before it's available?

I feel bad for the crappy internet connection people, they probably need to stick with physical delivery. I'm okay with prepurchase right before, that's convenience, not giving the publisher a loan.

I don't pre order unless there is an incentive, I don't think I will ever pre order anything digitally though and it's not that I don't like digital, there are some arcade games that I am interested in.
Life goal own all retail X-Box games. My collection: X-Box: 535, X-Box 360: 1204, One: 178

I don't pre-order EVER

Join the leaderboard that is *actually* #1 on the site! All friends of mine are welcome and anyone who prefers poptarts over fish!
Wait, I consider Kickstarter as pre-ordering. If you don't, then I currently have 0 pre-orders.
I only preload a day or two before, if I even buy before release. Most stuff I wait for a sale, or free Bing money.
Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

The last time I preordered was when the 360 came out.

Welcome to the mandatory install age. We're here to inconvenience you as much as possible. Enjoy your stay.

I used to pre-order, but then I took an arrow in the knee.

Well, looks like you can get Black Ops III now, release date... 11/6/2015....

I just wonder how many people will buy this thinking a new Call of Duty has came out? I mean from those people that may only play two or three different games a year at most and don't know every release that comes out.
