"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason." -Jack Handey
I check CSI every morning to see what goes up for preorder. This thing went up and is literally sold out in less than an hour. Are they seriously shipping out like 20 copies to retail? Stuff like this is why I have moved farther and farther away from this hobby as time goes on.
Note that CSI often has more copies available at launch. As I understand it, retail often gets shorted on its orders when distributors can't fulfill demand. If CSI presells 100% of what it ordered, but only receives half that amount... then what happens?
So they pick a fraction and allot that amount as presales. But in most cases, they will get their allotment because they are such a large retailer. So look for them to have extras to sell when the game actually releases in October.
