Should i pre-order Doom III?

The price is 54.99 at most place and it seems too much to pay for it. Are anyone of you pre-ordering this game?

I'm gonna wait till it comes out and pay around 30 bucks for it at Best Buy, GoGamer or Fry's Electronics.

Is there even a release date yet? It will probably be pushed back a couple more times.

IMO there is no point to pre-ordering. That just locks you into a store, when you have no idea if they will have the best price. I don't think you will have a problem obtaining a copy, and probably at a cheaper price.

Expect a definite release date to be announced during E3.

I never saw the point of pre-ordering anything unless you're doing it for some free stuff

Word going around our offices, and at anothers, is that it is actually very close to release now, and they are just waiting for E3.

I wonder if they changed the length of the game, I know about a year ago they were saying the single player game would take about 5 hours to complete.

Yeah, you guys are probably right. I guess those retailers are just cashing in on anxious gamers. Btw, are they coming out with a DVD version or CD's?

No reason to pre-order it. Release day will be huuuuuge with deals. Also best to wait on who's giving the best freebies away. the different stores were giving out different pewter figures a while back for a $5 deposit. But even that isn't worth the $5

technically they've alway said "when it's done", it's the retailers that have pushed back their 'guesstimated' dates over and over again.

It's supposed to come out for XBox, but that could be later on.
