Amazon.com's price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and shipped. Whenever you pre-order a book, CD, video, DVD, software, or video game, the price we charge when we ship it to you will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.com between the time you placed your order and the end of the day of the release date. A pre-order price guarantee message will appear on your Order Summary during the checkout process. If you use 1-Click ordering, pre-order price protection will be automatically applied. The order summary in Your Account will reflect the lowest price within 24 hours of the price change.

PS. I meant to edit my previous post, and ended up deleting the whole thing :(
Yeah they will automatically adjust it. Or if they do charge you the higher price, Amazon will refund the over amount a few days after it ships. I had that issue with the fallout guide. Pre-Ordered at 23, it shipped at 20, then day after it was on sale for 19. Amazon gave me the 19 price and refunded the difference. You should receive an email when that happens.
Actually C. Richardson, it WILL be released very soon on or just after Oct. 26th along with the game. The "estimated" delivery dates and availability messages we all receive and/or see on the item's page on amazon is all "automated" by a computer system and therefore lacks human logic. 95% of everyone will get their guide and game on or just after the release date. That "1-4 months" thing happens all the time and is completely irrelevant.
I noticed that the price was at 23.00 for the Fable 3 strategy guide limited edition. This book has been on my wishlist and has dropped all the way down to 13.00 after thanksgiving it went back up why?
I placed a dvd in my cart at $42, the next morning i went to check out and i was notified it was now $60. right before my eyes it went up $18 in the cart. i cancelled it and went to the local music store and ordered it. came home and got a notice a new listing was available at $52 (STNG season 3). changes are fine, what i am witnessing here is exactly like the market. only with consumer goods. I'll shop locally when possible now. Then i watched a tv program dvd season go from 32 to 116 (little house 1). really fun to watch, wont do wonders for amazons items.
