It never made any sense to me to pre-order a digital game because you can always get it one day or week before in case you want to gain some extra pre-order bonus.
But it would make sense if the game would be a retail limited edition. Sometimes those editions sell out fast.

Totally agree. Limited editions are as they say, limited. Makes total sense to preorder those :3

No. It's an anti-consumer practice. So much risk for very little reward. besides in this day and age there are some many avenues for buying games that you never have to worry about games being sold out.

Disc, sure cause you can just say no to it and get you money back
Digital, no cause you can't get your money back or it's harder

Games like Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed? No
