I'm wondering who ships faster Best Buy or New Egg. I don't want to go to best buy every Tuesday to pick up pre-orders. Saving 7 bucks vs this new egg deal isn't worth the long lines.

After the last 3 times they did this...I don't think I have anything left to preorder.

I'm new to PC gaming and don't know how all this works, but if I pre-order one of these games will I be able to activate them on Steam? I'm interested in picking up Metro, Bioshock Infinite, and Far Cry 3 if they can activate on Steam.

So I pre-ordered Persona 4 and Ragnarok when Newegg had their $10 off $40 coupon going. Then I found out they came out with a Mercenary edition for Ragnarok. Problem is, my Persona 4 and Ragnarok order are in the same order. Anyone know what I should do so I can get the Mercenary edition instead?

I'm guessing you can't cancel just 1 item from the order like Amazon's system. I would pre-order the Merc edition to lock it in and email them to cancel the regular edition from the other order. If they say no you can either cancel the Merc edition or just let both ship and refuse delivery of the normal version...

Yeah, Newegg has been eating Amazon's lunch.


Yep, seriously. Amazon even cut off their $1 release day delivery for non-prime customers. :(

I won't preorder any games from Amazon anymore unless they offer an exclusive edition or something.

I presume you mean shipping where you get the game on release day. I don't think they offer it. So if you want that, you need to pre-order at amazon or somewhere else that offers it.

Thanks OP, deal is even better since Newegg is one of the last places that does not charge me sales tax. Preordered Rayman, AC3, Lego LOTR, Far Cry 3 PC, and Zombie U, most were 38$ shipped..

If you guys want a list of eligible game just do a search for PREORDERSAVE12.



Great tip. Thanks.



Hopefully NewEgg has a $12 off Pre-Order sale active on September 13th (Thursday) - that's the big day of the WiiU reveal, and presumably the date for when Nintendo announces pricing on its own WiiU games (and therefore they show up as pre-orderable).

I would love to get some more WiiU games pre-ordered at $12 off!

Yeah, I guess that's my only option, shit. I should have placed separate orders before, ah well.

I only pre-ordered Puppeteer, Remember Me, and Ragnarok Odyssey as I had everything else already pre-ordered with them.

Another option if they say no is to lock in the merc edition now.. and hope for another 10 off 40 coupon before ragnorok comes out. then you can order persona and just cancel your original order. over a month left... so there's a good chance. i was actually counting on another coupon to lock in my own merc edition. had the regular preordered from some other coupon.

grabbed Remember Me, since you couldn't grab that last time around for some reason. besides, i hadn't seen gameplay footage at that point (which looks amazing).

i have like 25 games preordered through newegg at this point. they are owning this.

Off topic, but I wish more people would do this. Amazon has become incredibly complacent video game deals-wise.

Well my experiences with newegg are really good with shipping. I pre-ordered Guild Wars 2 for pc with the same $12 off code weeks ago and I still got my game on release day. I even chose the cheapest shipping. Just my two cents..

Huh, I wonder if Dragon's Crown (:ps3:) will get the same treatment as PS All-Stars and include the Vita edition for free; if that happens, $37.99 is a pretty hard price to pass up. :-k

Tempted to do this deal with the PS3 version of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, since it comes with the Vita version as well. Hmm...
