Amazon you really dropped the ball on this one. The biggest game of the year on PS3 and no credit to be seen. Was planning on getting it from Amazon but now i guess Kmart is where i'll be going.

I'm not buying this from amazon either. With no credit it's easier to just pop by the local store. Shame on you Amazon. Maybe I'll take all my business elsewhere!

Agreed. Looks like Kmart are the only ones offering any good deals on games anymore. Lord knows Gamestop don't!

Yes, not including a completely optional promotional credit warrants not buying this from Amazon. Idiots.

So, it's idiotic to seek the better deal? Saving $20 off a future gaming purchase hardly seems idiotic in my mind. As much as I love Amazon, I'd rather save money. Usually I save money by going with Amazon but in this case it doesn't appear it'll be that way.

I was referring to the people up top that said they dropped the ball. It is a game everybody will buy regardless of promotional credit. A promotional credit is not required to make the sale for them so why bother? Just sick of everyone complaining that Amazon didn't include one. There are other retailers. Just go buy there and quit the damn whining.

If you offer an opinion (even if it seems to be in the minority), that isn't trolling. Those who post on Amazon, begging for promotional credit or price matches are the ones who needs to get a life.

They dropped the ball on release-date shipping, guess I'll have to pick up my game at the local GameStop, uggh.

If it weren't for consumer pressure, there wouldn't be promotional deals on Amazon for everyone. Do you think Amazon doesn't look at these discussions? Moderators do.

Personally, I'm glad people whine about promotional credit. When I was looking to purchase a PS3, several discussions cropped up about $100 promotional credit offered at Wal-mart. Sure enough, Amazon followed the lead and offered the $100.

In my mind, those who post for promotional credit are doing so for practical intent. Those who make comments complaining about the whiners are wasting their time.

I would have bought this and Mass Effect 2 if they had a promotional credit. But since they don't, I won't be buying either of them from here.

In order to get the release day arrival from amazon, they chat told me you have to place it 5 days before the release day. Also, they are having a 20 credit to amazon now

Your lose is another's gain

Does amazon usually honor the $20 credit to items already preordered? Or will I have to cancel then reorder?

No, you don't have to reorder. It should be emailed to you 2 days after the release. 20$ baby! WOOOOOOOO

Good news for me! I'm already getting this game for 30 something dollars from Amazon because of a past pre-order that I had forgotten about. ($20 credit). So that means, when LBP2 ships...I'll get another $20 promo credit and get Dead Space 2 for 30 something bucks too! Can't lose with Amazon!

(Couldn't care less about Mass Effect 2 btw),...just thought I'd throw that in, since people are going nuts about it.

I just ordered LBP 2, and Mass Effect 2 since they both now have a $20 credit. Good thing I checked. I was going to pick this up somewhere else.
