The loss of $.99 release date shipping really sucks on my wallet.
Now it would cost 8-10 more bucks per game if I wanted them on the day they come out.
What a load of crap. I hope this price boost is only a mistake or temporary.
GameStop almost always has a better pre-order bonus than Amazon, and the ONLY thing that has kept me with Amazon is you normally get 10 dollars in credit, you don't have to pay the sales tax, and release day delivery is only a dollar.
Take away release date delivery, and Amazon just lost themselves pretty much every single game that I pre-order for the foreseeable future.
Hopefully they're just testing this, it will bite them in the ass, and they'll be back to their standard way of business in a month or two at most.
