    I've never understood the point of preordering games. Why not just buy it the day it comes out at the store?

    Well it's to be sure that the store will not run out of stock before you buy it.

    I can't belive that stores are letting people pre-order CiV THIS early! Well, that means that I can pre-order it on my 15th birthday (which is in early July).

    I know it may sound wierd but sometimes stores don't sell games that they definitely should. also sometimes the country your in sometimes does not have enough development to have a video game store and last you may be in a country that speaks a different language than you and you do not want to get it in that language.

    Often a pre-order comes with an exclusive bonus. A map, a golden weapon, special ability etc.

    Thanks guys. Sweden and Finland added to the list. Personally I'll wait with putting my preorder in until let's say a month before the game launches to see what the best local deal is, but some really like to put their order in early.

    The mechanism of preorders also allows a manufacturer to get an idea on how much demand there is for their new product. It allows them to do sufficient production so that enthusiasts are guaranteed their copy and if it's sent to your home on the day of the launch: no need to queue in the store.

    @Boxhell - Thanks, Puolenkuun Pelit added
    @Tamed - Steam was already listed, but I added the Deluxe Edition now.
    @CeasarPlayer995 - EBGames is already listed.

    People who find pre-orders in other countries, please post them in this thread and I'll update header post.

    For us australians its US$79.99 for normal version and US$89.95 for the deluxe which converts to AU$91 for the normal version and AU$102 for the deluxe. which is a huge ripoff for a pc game, and only being a digital copy.

    That's an outrageous price difference indeed. Especially considering that it's an electronic distribution. No need to even sent the DVD to the island. You'll be pleased to know that Mighty Ape is accepting pre-orders for $ 70.99 (I presume that's AU$). I already had the link to the Mighty Ape in .nz but now also the link at .au.

    Ive never preordered before so I had a question. Sorry Mercade for asking in your thread, but since its a simple question and about prorders I hope you wont mind.

    Say I preorder from amazon, do they ship the game so I get it by release day? Or do they ship on release day? Thanks
