Yep! $14 cheaper for me!! Amazon charges me Tax and Newegg doesn't.
Buy from Newegg... I just wasted 30 minutes with Purnima & Harika? trying to get them to price match to Newegg, but they told me this (several times):
I'm sorry, with the exception of TVs, Amazon doesn't offer a price match guarantee. We do consistently work toward maintaining competitive prices on everything we carry. Because the marketplace is constantly changing and we strive to offer the lowest price, you'll see some fluctuations in our prices over time. However, you can let us know about a lower price by clicking the "tell us about a lower price" link in the Product Details section of any product page.
So Amazon, I have been a customer of yours since day 1.. I am taking my business to Newegg.com..
Amazon was $60 (With prime, shipping is free). Newegg ended up being $48 with the code, but in California there was about $4 in tax so the total was $52-ish (Free 3 day UPS shipping, I don't need it on release day...)
Why isn't Amazon trying to compete with Newegg yet? I think I'll just preorder from Newegg and if Amazon doesn't lower their price soon, I'll just cancel my preorder here. If they do, then I'll cancel at Newegg.
When I preordered Mortal Kombat, the preorder price started at $59.99 but eventually dropped down to $47.99. That only lasted a day or two, but because I had it preordered, I got the lowest price. Also, they included a $10 promotional credit. I'm hoping they end up doing something similar with Twisted Metal. If not, I do have other options. You hear that, Amazon!?
I am going to have to go with newegg on this one amazon has not had that many good deals on new releases this past 4 months. Maybe we got spoiled with all the credit, but that being said newegg and bestbuy have really picked up the deals as of late and I find myself buying almost no games from amazon. Newegg uses a coupon code so amazon will not match them.
You got a good point Ted, as much as I want Axel, I can always just buy DLC later. I'm not sure of the details, but can you cancel the preorder from Newegg before it ships with no charge? Just in case Amazon decides to suddenly drop the price
