amazon was taking way too long to ship (with no discount - 1 dollar off means nothing to me - and regular shipping), so i just pre-ordered from best buy with in-store pick-up. not waiting longer for no discount just to order through amazon.
I got 2K12 for release day last year, paid the extra $0.99 for it. Now I have to be prime just to get release day for free, and California is charging tax. I did the Best Buy pre-order and picking it up at the store, since $1 off isn't much of a deal. The $10 to get it for release day didn't help much either.
