If you are used to pre-ordering your video games in advance on Amazon in Europe then you need to be aware that the company has changed its pre-order policy. Amazon used to take payment once a pre-order had been dispatched, but now the company will take payment immediately for video game pre-orders. It is clear they have decided to do it because people were pre-ordering to get various pre-order beta codes or goodies and then canceling once they had redeemed the code. It’s a shame that they have decided to do this. This new policy doesn’t seem to be active in North America, yet.
