Doom games always hold their value
If it's a small studio who actually need the funding from pre-orders to make the game, then go ahead and pre-order. But this is Bethesda. They'll use the extra cash to port Skyrim to your toaster.
How someone could pre-order the game if we don't know actually ANYTHING nothing about it? No gameplay, no details, no release date. Just a placeholder and of course not final price from publisher ;)
Agree with the rest of you. Unless you have money to burn, there is no need to ever pre-order games.
Putting “only” doesn’t ease the pain of paying over £40 I’m afraid ;)
