It meant I got a PS4 while a friend of mine is out of luck.

Preordering on PC is advantageous because you get to preload it.

Digital versions only though. But that's because games are big downloads these days it's to let people play equally when games release. Because before CD was faster.

The worst thing I notice (in my own personal experience) with pre-ordering is that I never seem to get around to actually playing the title until it is available on Steam for 75% off.

I swear, any time I actually shell out the extra cash for a title, that is when real life kicks into high gear and I am lucky to get an hour of gaming in per week.

The closest thing I got to a pre-order payment was Batman: Arkham Origins. Both of my GTX 770s came with one, so I hooked up @Shotgunmaniac with one. I think he has actually gotten to play it... whereas I have only been able to install it and run the configuration setup.

I was once skeptical about digital delivery.

But now I am a full convert to it.

There is no reason anymore to buy games on physical media.

Unless you're buying a pirated copy in a flea-market in Eastern Europe.

Steam is in it for the long haul, and even after Steam dies whoever takes up the digital distribution mantle will carry on the licenses we have purchased.
