Apparently Sony made a big mistake. I remember thinking “that is such an insane badass deal” when I saw the Beyond Two Souls preorder deal on their site. I couldn’t believe it. But I also thought it was legit because I’ve seen several PC download pre-orders go for the same price in the past year now. I was thinking maybe this would become more normal.
It seems Sony doesn’t agree with me just yet though. They canceled all the $35 pre-orders they received, and offered a $5 credit towards the same purchase at regular price in order to make up for that loss. I think that’s ridiculous. I’m pretty ticked off and I didn’t even order it. I wanted to, I’m just really broke right now. It’s nice that they offered the $5 credit but I’m really confused why they didn’t just honor the deal. I don’t know about you, but I would bet at least half of the people that pre-ordered it at $35 would not have pre-ordered it at $60 and still won’t at $55. I think now they’ll just wait to buy it when it’s cheaper. I could be wrong, but that’s what I believe.
I think it’s pretty shady of Sony to cancel the orders. Not that I hate them for it or anything, I don’t. I just really think it was a bad call. Very disappointing.
