    Did anyone else pre-purchase Guild Wars 2?

    It has been available to pre-purchase since midnight PST.

    I don't see a reason to pre purchase when they haven't even announced the release date yet.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    I pre-purchased the CE from Zavvi, can't wait to get this stuff through the post.

    Guess you guys have never pre-purchased anything before.

    Sure, but games get canceled and release dates get pushed (DNF is a good but extreme example).

    Games shouldn't be available for pre purchase in my opinion before the developers/publishers have a solid release date.

    Offering access to the beta for those that pre purchase is one thing, but offering a 3 days head start and ingame items? thats just low.

    I purchased the standard edition at 50 from Zavvi. Can't wait to receive it in the post. I was swayed big time about guaranteed access to the beta. Getting in 3 days before anyone else that didn't pre-purchase is icing on the cake but it's not going to be something that separates players for long.

    • Cars have a pre-purchase and there have been times when they've been canned or have taken longer than expected
    • Houses have a pre-purchase and there have been times when they've been canned or have taken longer than expected

    A lot of things have a pre-purchase and almost all companies work on this basis towards each other, it's nothing new and has been going on for thousands of years.

    If you pre-purchase the game you are guaranteed to participate in the beta weekends. You also get a 3 days head start on release, and some in game items. I figured that it's not going to be cheaper to buy it on release anyways...

    I pre purchased it through a swedish retailer april 10th and got the box with the code in the mail today. Hehe. The first beta weekend seems to be happening late april .

    Some new footage (13 April 2012), courtesy of Game Informer. Sorry, don't think I can embed it. Just over half an hour.

    Clicky linky.
