Online retailer, Amazon, is now taking pre-orders for the recently-announced “Uncharted” video game for the PS4.
I just wanted to point out that Amazon doesn't/hasn't listed any games releasing in 2015 (such as Battlefront and Cyberpunk 2077) which means that Uncharted 4 is definitely coming in 2014. I'm guessing Holiday 2014.
Why do people preorder, it's not like games are "limited" anymore and if you don't preorder you won't get a copy. Better to grab it on release and buy it at the store offering up the best price, or even better wait 2 months and get it at half the price.
Amazon don't charge until dispatch anyway
Marketing ploy, meanwhile said company gets to accrue interest on all that preorder money. Back in the day (old man rant ahead) I prerecorded Ocarina of Time. Why? Well for the normal msrp I got the Gold Cartridge, a Zelda calendar, t-shirt, and tri-force key chain. Nothing says Now a days this would be branded as some sort of collectors edition (which in retrospect it was) but they would tack on X amount of dollars to the final price. So now when they say preorder to get well nothing, I say piss off.
i mostly pre order collectors editions cuz some DO run out.. I also pre order certain games because i get sent notifications when a game is releasing & i try to put down $20 or so on em anytime i stop by the store so they dont cost so much at 1 time
When is this game coming out? like Fall/winter 14'?
Maybe... Maybe not. I suspect a 2015 release myself but there is no official word one way or another.
