I don't know why people pre-order; at least wait until it's out and people have done youtube videos on it. It will be the same price and you'll be sure that you like it. I want GTA V, but I'm very happy to wait a few months and get it for £20, instead of being weak minded and impatient and getting it on launch day, If you have the money, then fair enough, but I'd rather wait a while.
Generally, Dave, our views tend to concur, however, on this occasion I'm going to break with protocol. I pre-order pretty much everything, and it's not unusual for me to get up to 6 games in a month. But I do so because I can afford to and because I have the time available to me that enables me, should I wish, to game for many hours a day. Yes, I could save myself a considerable amount of money if I were to buy weeks or months later, but why should I when I can afford to buy what I want, when I want? Your comment might have a bit of validity if the choice is between feeding the family or getting the latest Call of Duty, but I suspect there are very few people that would make the wrong choice if faced with such a decision.
