How Long Do You Wait Before Pre-Ordering A Game?
Often enough a game is available for pre-order as soon as it is announced. All we may seen is a one minute teaser trailer and a logo but retailers are giving us the option to commit to buying it. That’s kind of very strange.
You can only purchase tickets for a movie a few weeks before the release at the absolute most.

Granted, pre-ordering games usually involves no money. Merely committing to getting the game on launch day. The flipside is that you’re guaranteed a copy of the game at launch. I’ve personally done that with a few games and then let the pre-order lapse when I receive my review copy of said game.
Anyway, a pre-order indicates that you are excited enough for a game to make a decision that future you is going to have to deal with.
How long do you wait before pre-ordering a game? Perhaps you blow your load early and are one of those people who pre-orders as soon as retailers list the game. Maybe you’re like I used to be where you wait to see some real gameplay before making a decision. You could also be a lot more cautious. In the wake of so many games recently being hit by delays you might wait until a week before the release.
Sounds off in the comments.
