I don't know if its amazon's greed for charging shipping on items that once would be shipped same day release for FREE. or the united states goverment for taxing online businesses, so they can spend there money bombing other countries. But I won't be buying this online..
that 10 dollar credit goes to tax and shipping, njoy.
I wholeheartedly agree. That's why I cancelled my preorder with Amazon. The 10 dollar credit doesn't even get refunded to you so that the game's $48.99. It's only good towards purchasing another product. I have my gripes with the shipping, as well. I chose free super saver shipping, and it was saying that I wouldn't get the game until the following week of its release (5-8 business days). I think that's just terrible. I know I shouldn't complain since Amazon is offering the free shipping, but still... I have seen better deals on other websites.
As for the tax, I think that only certain states charge a tax on online orders. I live in Michigan and I've never been taxed when I tried to order something off of Amazon. I did have something shipped to Cali one time, however, and had to pay a pretty hefty tax.
