What do you mean 'might as well get it as soon as possible'?Why is it insane to put a pre-order down already? If you know you're gonna be buying the game anyways, might as well get it as soon as possible. I did the same with Battlefield 2042, pre-ordered immediatly after the first trailer dropped as I knew I was gonna buy it anyways. For me with GT7, the only reason I haven't preordered yet is because it could get delayed again and I'm not gonna spend 80 big ones on a game I might not be able to play for another year orso. GT7 has yet to fully convince me into buying it at launch and the preorder bonusses are not really worth it imo.
You're not getting it any sooner. You're just giving your money to somebody else to hold on to until the middle of next year.
That makes no financial sense whatsoever.
