Will they honor the preorders from they former competitors they ate up? I mean... "Merged" The only "GameStop" that was at my neighborhood at that time was called Funcoland. Anyhow, I did not preorder the game at that time. I reckon that most people used their preorder credits to get other games.

Same here. I don't think I ever saw a Gamestop until about 2000~2002 when they bought up all the EB Games and Funcolands in my area.

I would have to travel a little far for EB games, but man, they were the best when it came to collectors editions and game soundtracks. I do not know how they did it, but they are waaay better than what GameStop could ever cough out. I also miss those classic "newspapers" that FuncoLand would come up with every month. They are the definite best. I am surprised the FCC did not step in to stop these mergers from happening. Now there is only one store. I also started seeing GameStops popping out everywhere in the early 2000s. For me, it may have been more like 2003 or 2004... Now I just download my games, and avoid these guys like the plague.

Indeed, being able to download games is awesome, especially when you don't want to wait in line for a new game. <3 Steam

That is the primary advantage of downloading. It is even better to stay all nice and warm at home while all the console gamers are stuck waiting outside in the freezing cold for a game that may, or may not be good at all. The future is definitely all about downloading.

The game store where I paid $25 for my preorder no longer exists and the owner has since died. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to eat the loss and pay full price. Placed my NEW preorder at Amazon for the $99 collectible version already.:)
