    So I want to pre-purchase Far Cry 2 at amazon.com cus u get a $10 giftcard when u do so it is really $40 lol!

    Anyway when you do that do they ship out the game so it gets to your house on release date? Cus I don't want to wait a second more then I need to.

    Umm, I'm not 100% positive, But I could have sworn that they send it out to you on the day of release.. meaning you may have to wait a few days to play it.
    Or at least that happened to my friend.

    I have only pre-ordered one thing well two as it was a "bundle" I guess you could say. It was Final Fantasy 12 Collectors edition and the collectors guide. Both got to me before the release of them. Final Fantasy 12 got here like 2 days before and the book a few days before that... IF I recall right.

    I preorder from game.co.uk and play.com and get my games a day before release.

    I pre-ordered Wii-Fit from them and it arrived 2 days after launch only because they were having problems with their supplier.
