You make some good points Jaxx. I guess it's all about making some quick cash and that's the first priority.
It's telling there's no gameplay trailer yet, well, maybe. I don't know if Infinity Ward even know what a new game engine looks like so I'm pretty sceptical the game won't just be yet another rehash. But we'll have to wait and see.
Having read ShopTo's reasoning, I can see it's not that much of a gamble to them if indeed they make all their money (which seems a bit sad/short sighted) on pre-orders. Nobody understands patience
then? A good game is still a good game a week later, especially if you haven't yet played it and had the chance to become bored. Though I suppose Battlefield/COD is different as people like to hurry and level up super fast so they have an edge on other players.
Oh yeah, the Tuesday/Friday thing...
