Whats the most reliable place to preorder videogames from? Has anyone had problems with certain retailers not being able to fulfill orders?

Why would you want to preorder video games anyway? I mean I can guess that you'd REALLY want that useless pre-order DLC, but that's about it.
>>
Only steam, and only if it has some kind of discount for preordering, or you were planning on buying it day 1.
>>
>>323156532
Order from Amazon. GameStop fucking sucks
>>
>>323155697

Fucking normies.
>>
>>323156532
Don't see the difference. I can pay 50 bucks 2 months ahead of time, or on release day. Either way its still 50 dollars.
>>
>>323155697
bestbuy has been pretty reliable for me. Most of the time, they ship my preorders a few days before street day and I get em a day before it comes out.

I think only one time they shipped it on release date and I got it days after... and it was with EDF 4.1
>>
>>323155697

Nintendo.co.uk

At least 2 days early, sometimes more.

Based as fuck.

Amazon is the best
>>
>>323155697
Amazon USED to be the best, but not anymore. So many of their preorders lack exclusives or any bonuses at all.

If you are serious about paying $59.99 for a game that will be half that in a couple months, research possible bonuses on GameStop first. Best Buy is a complete joke.
>>
>>323161184
I remember when Amazon used to offer $10-25 credit on almost any game pre-order, it was fucking amazing. At least Best Buy stepped up to do essentially the same thing.

Amazon won't do refunds on digital orders, friendo.

Most of their titles require third party software DRM anyways. Origins and Uplay come to mind.

Best place is Steam. At least you get a refund, no matter how limited the time frame is, the bandwidth is stable and you won't have to deal with a shitty bloated DRM-can't-play-can't-connect-to-server-tough-shit-for-you software.

People here are contrarian cunts and will bitch about Steam ever since it became popular but it's pretty much the only platform that works. That and GOG.

GOG is great but their selection is more on classic games and indies. Their customer service is great and their client is nearly as good as Steam.

Personally I usually order from Sofmap. They give out most extras. I only switch to different shops if I want a specific extra from them.

Currently have Maitetsu and Shoukomeza preordered at Sofmap.
>>
>>323160743
I have LITERALLY no reason not to.
>>
Best Buy with GCU

>20% Off New Video Game Software

Also $10 gift cards for pre ordering all the time
>>
For people that live in the UK, ShopTo usually delivers games early so you'll get it 1-3 days early in most cases.

I was surprised they weren't out of business, but Best Buy has surprisingly been all right, with their 20% gaymer club discount. Saved like 50 bucks so far preordering new stuff, counting the $30 opt in for 2 years.

Their online/phone customer service is pretty shit when it comes to making changes to pre-orders you already placed, although my in-store dudes seem slightly less clueless.
>>
>>323161671
Pre orders are an act of faith. If you have so much an excess of faith to place pre orders for games that will probably sucks you should probably go to church more Billy

God. fucking. damn. Gamestop
>>
>>323164213
the problem with best buy though is that you have to pay upfront completely. with amazon you pay as it ships. gamestop you have to put down $5 minimum.
>>
>>323167656
You can cancel it you know..

Amazon is pretty good with pre-orders. Release date shipping is only like $1 unless the changed it and even after running out of MGS5 collector's editions they still managed to send me one.
>>
>>323168517
It's too late when its in your mailbox, anon

Oh. Got ya now. Yeah id be fucking pissed.

Amazon's the best but they're even better if you have that prime membership thing. If you get that then they treat you like fucking royalty.

>Pre-ordering digital games and not just getting it from Kinguin

I paid 40 for XCOM 2 but won't get the key til day of, but hey its cheaper then the 60 I'd have to pay.
>>
>>323171009
it was $30 at cdkeys

>>323156532
i'll explain
>preorder from amazon, zavvi or similar retailers
>you pay only at shipment
>can cancel anytime
>if price lowers, you'll pay the lowest one

how is preorder acceptable you'll ask.
i'll give you an example. i bought de:md before the delay from zavvi at 33 euros, star ocean from amazon at 59, which got lowered to 47 at some point and returned at 55. still i get the lowest price (my order specifies 47 now).

now, if a week before the release reviews or leaks come out, they says the game is good and runs well, i'll keep the order, else i can cancel it the day before release.
>>
>>323172962
so if they accidentally lower it to £5 for a minute you'd get it for £5
>>
>>323173839
unless they come up with public excuses like "it was a system error and it wasnt supposed to be that price", you'll get it at 5, but i've never seen amazon doing mistakes so big on prices.
it happened that they shipped goods to the wrong people, but by law they always let them keep it with no hassle
>>
>>323173839
Basically.
