Question 4 months too early to put up this pre-order info.

4 months early is pretty darn early.
you can get the digital pre order bonus a day before it releases.

seems like a bad trend in gaming imho.
i don't pay for anything else early, especially if it's a
digital product that couldn't possibly sell out.

anyway, game looks kick and silly good fun. can't wait.

Whats wrong with it being 4 months early?

What if I theoretically owned a icecream store that is going to see its opening in a couple months time. I want to promote sales by offering free toppings the first week. It would predictably boost sales and give wider notice.

The only reason I don't like it is because it makes the wait feel soooo much longer.

Uhh what.

Pre-ordering is great. I payed the 50 euros now, because around that time Battlefield 3 (if it's on Steam)Batman Arkham City and Assassins Creed come out as well. So that's another 150 euros. Spreading it those costs out makes it easier.

When you preorder on Steam your credit card isn't charged until the game is available, so it really doesn't matter.

Game looks awesome fun and i hope that there will be a deal on GMG just like with DX:HR and Dead Island. Or else i will get it on Steam at the last moment.

Nope, it is charged on purchase, not on release.
