HOLD your order so that when it is released you get it right away? Don't most places base their pre-order orders on the actual number of pre orders they receive?
I am kinda pissed because I preordered some software almost a month ago and I get an email telling me it's backordered and that it will most likely ship in 1-2 weeks. Meaning, I'll get it in 2-3 weeks. WTF? Why did I preorder? That was stupid.
I found it somewhere else and to emphasize my irritation with this pre order debacle, I canceled my pre order and now the software will be shipping to me 3 day UPS. I will have it by weeks end.
Am I delusional? Or are pre orders meant to PRE ORDER and reserve your item?
Maybe the retailer got stiffed by their wholesaler.
It was Best Buy. The Devil of the Electronic World.
Best Buy is a tough vendor to order from, in my own experience.
