Since video games are so much more complex than they used to be, they’re also more prone to errors.
If you hold onto your money and don’t preorder a game, you can wait until the bugs are fixed before buying, giving yourself a better gaming experience than if you had preordered (and maybe even a lower price).
What’s the point of pre ordering games?
what’s the point of pre ordering a video game ? Pre-ordering used to be primarily about guaranteeing stock. This isn’t such a big deal anymore, but there was once a time when major game releases would have relatively limited inventory on retailers’ shelves compared to demand.
Do you get a game early if you preorder it?
There is a distinct difference between Early-Access and Pre-Order games. If you pre-order a game, you are paying money for a product that is not yet released. When you buy a Pre-Order, you will receive a blank download page that is awaiting content. Do not delete it!
What happens when you preorder a digital game?
When you pre-order a game, your wallet or payment method will be charged. If you change your mind before the content is released (or within 14 days of making the pre-order) and the content hasn’t started to download to your PlayStation system, you will be able to cancel the pre-order and receive a refund.
Does pre ordering cost money?
We won’t charge you for the pre-order until release day, and will send you an e-mail to confirm when the item is available in Your Games & Software Library. If you’d like to cancel your pre-order before release day, go to Your Games & Software Library and click Cancel pre-order.
Do pre orders arrive on release day?
As long as your order is placed before 4 pm on the day before release day and payment is processed without any issues, we would expect you to receive your game on release day. Our orders are dispatched up until 5 pm the day before release. When this happens, you will receive a shipping confirmation email.
