    I could see how someone might question when the first payment would come since the game has been for sale for quite a while now via pre-order.

    You know no money would be sent out to the publisher/developer, until the game is actually shipped ... ?

    Really? No money of pre-orders are sent to the devs/pubs until it's been shipped? Nice to know.

    Don‘t the retailers only charge your card when they ship the game? I‘ve had the LE on order from Game UK for ages now, but I‘m pretty sure they haven‘t taken the cash yet.

    Yep, I used PayPal to pay for my Game order last September and they haven't charged it through yet.

    In fact, Game emailed everyone a while ago saying they'd dropped the price of the PC LE version so it's 34.99 instead of 39.99 when I ordered it. I assume it'll be charged as soon as it's processed for delivery - which is what most online retailers should do.

    Here's the text from the PayPal email I got at the time of ordering:

    You submitted an order amounting to 39.99 GBP to Game Retail Ltd
    Thanks for using PayPal. Please note that this is not a charge. Your account will be charged when the merchant processes your payment. You may receive multiple emails as the merchant processes your order.

    Your funds will be transferred when the merchant processes your payment. Any money in your PayPal account at that time will be used before any other payment source.

    No I wouldn't and likely I am thinking others wouldn't know that as well maybe raising a question or two from individuals who have not frequented the forums rarely or if ever?

    Because cancellations are allowed for pre-orders (e.g. on Amazon) up to the point of shipping, most online retailers don't take money for orders until the ship date.

    There might be a million pre-orders at this point in time, but no money has changed hands yet.

    An exclusion to the above however is Steam - they charge you right there and then for pre-orders, although I believe you can cancel the pre-order (never done it myself but I suspect Steam might be sneaky and give you store credit instead of a chargeback to your credit card)!

    If you cancel a Steam Pre-Order it is refunded to your Steam Wallet. It's mentioned in the Purchase Agreement you have to agree to before the system lets you place the order. Been like that for years.

    Talking to one of the LA Noir devs, sometimes even then you don't get the money... Too many times I had to hear that story, haha
