Pretty good, but I'm sure someone will have a $10-$20 credit or Newegg will have it for $48.

Nope should be $47.99 at newegg sooner or later, plus Amazon charges me tax now all the sudden. Newegg wins.

Thanks, OP. I pre-ordered but will cancel and reorder if a better price hits. Please, NewEgg?

I know, it's a pretty generic-sounding title. I keep envisioning some bizarre cross between Beyond Good & Evil, Two Worlds and Demon's/Dark Souls.

BG&E/Demon/Dark Souls cross would be epic, Two Worlds not so much. :D

But having beaten Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy this is a must buy for muah. Freaking loved both of them and this looks really cool.

Thanks, OP! I can always cancel later on. :D

Hopefully Amazon adds a $20 credit or something to this to make it an even better deal. ;)

It most certainly is dead. Amazon realized that they accidentally had a game for non-MSRP and had to put a stop to it immediately. Sort of like how they removed the Borderlands 2 $10 credit that was there for like a year.

Just wait until they realize they aren't charging the rest of y'all tax on your purchases, lol.

Did you really love Indigo Prophecy, or did you (like me) love about two thirds of Indigo Prophecy? It *really* fell apart at the end to me.

True the end part was kind a big clusterfuck. Heavy Rain was good from beginning to end though.

Not to troll but Amazon sucks nowadays IMO. Part of that is because I now have to pay tax (Texas) even though I've been ordering from them for around 7 or 8 years and never did before. But even besides the taxes Newegg pwns them on their prices anyway. I mean almost all Newegg preorders are $47.99 (no taxes for me) while Amazon was charging 52.92 then quickly corrects their "mistake"? Screw that. Newegg is the new Amazon and Amazon is the new Gamestop.

Don't blame Amazon for charging sales tax in Texas. It's your own state that's causing the problem. Every U.S. state hates it when people make purchases online because they don't have to pay sales tax. To solve that problem, your state went to the white house and complained to congress that Amazon is to blame for loss of revenue. Amazon somehow loses the unfair battle in court and gets slapped with a huge fine. Instead of paying that fine, Amazon and your state settled on an agreement to help create distribution centers which will help create jobs in the future and legally charge sales tax.

That is also quite true, although at this point it makes no difference to me anyway since there is no way I'm paying MSRP for any game, tax or no tax, when places like Newegg and Best Buy are around.

I was able to snag this as a gold box deal a while ago. My preorder price is $56.99.

Edit: So, I tried talking to a CSR, and I was told that if the price drops, my order update. I sent a link to the camelcamelcamel page showing the price drop. I was then told that the price on the website is $59.99. I told them that the pre-order price guarantee says that if the price drops after my order is place and before it is shipped then I would received the lowest price. I then told them it did drop to $52.48 yesterday. Still wouldn't adjust my price.

Although I'm sure this game will be great, the trailer makes it kind of look like that last third of Indigo Prophecy, doesn't it? I even remember reading about the creator's reasoning behind the change from a supernatural story to a more realistic one in Heavy Rain (Quote:

), but it seems like, in some aspects, he pulled a 180 now. Oh well, like I said, I'm sure it'll be great.

I didnt know that but honestly I don't care who's to blame, all I know is I pay 0 taxes with Newegg and I have to pay taxes with Amazon. Adding to the fact that Amazon charges more than Newegg anyway (which I CAN blame Amazon for) It's a no brainer for me to use Newegg.

That's a load of crap. They're denying you one of the most prominent video game promotions that they offer and they really shouldn't be. I would suggest trying again with different CS reps until you get someone who actually knows the Preorder Price Guarantee and is willing to alter your price accordingly.

If nothing happens after trying for awhile, I'd send an email to Amazon directly describing your situation.
