Exactly. That point seems to be lost on the people complaining. No one forced you to buy it from Amazon when it was cheaper elsewhere. I am surprised they caved and gave so many people refunds. That would be like me complaining to my supermarket I bought this steak last week for $3.00 more a pound and now you have it on sale so I want a refund or I am taking my business elsewhere. They would laugh in your face. Prices get slashed all the time to meet competition. If you are foolish enough to pay the higher price when you can get it cheaper that's on you. I bought mine from NewEgg. Why would I pay $15 more just to get it from Amazon?
No you are missing the point. It was reported to Amazon hundreds if not thousands of times that both Newegg and TRU had lower preorder prices. Hell there are even threads on the product page stating that same information.
Amazon stood firm; they would no price match; then three days AFTER the game releases they find a way to match the price?
It happen with BF3, Final Fantasy and countless others. It is a disturbing trend and one that is going to ultimately change my preordre habits if it continues. I shouldn't have to contact Amazon and get these "one time" exceptions just because they decide to be ass clowns and issue credit or drop the price to match a competitior exactly 24-48 hours after my game ships.
