Before I go on, I would like to ask that there's no "they already stank!", etc replys...


I was wondering if anyone was having troubles with buy & pre-orders. I order several weeks before street and yet, I've had a number of pre-orders this month that have not shipped. Not small titles, either. Large titles (102 Dalmatians, Hamlet, etc...) I've been successfully (suprisingly!) able to cancel them.

The same with me, no preorders for awhile, and I just cancelled an item and it seems to have gone thru.

I don't have any troubles with Buy.com. That's probably because I don't order from them anymore!!!

They have gone downhill so far, you can usually get a much better deal at your retail store. With me it started last summer when Buy started charging sales tax (Indiana). They would have been OK with me, except that they ALSO started raising their prices and increased their shipping to $1.95 a title.

I just don't see any advantage to buy at Buy, except that you get your order 1-2 days before street date. I'm sorry, but that's just not enough of an advantage.
