I hope you're not planning on preordering! That's almost as bad as buying it for the PS4/5.

They're not saying you can't have sex with Keanu in CP2077.

This checks out.

Some people believe that pre-ordering just lets devs off the hook because you've already paid and they haven't delivered yet. Some believe you should wait for reviews before you buy in case broken game is broken. Some just don't trust devs. Tons of other reasons too, I'm sure.

But if any dev has earned credibility for delivering more than they promise, IMHO, it would be CDPR.

Lol, I see I was ninja'd by Arroway but posting it anyway.

Haven't pre-ordered or picked up a game first day since college. Had a couple games that looked great in ads but then didn't live up to expectations. Let someone else test out the game, then buy it if it's as good as advertised. It's not like it takes long to get reviews, you'll get the game maybe a week later, nbd. Days Gone seems like a good recent example: had a lot of hype but reviews have been decidedly mediocre.

From more of a business focused perspective, gaming companies shouldn't be getting your money before they've finished. That let's them release half-games and either slowly release updates or load up on DLCs to buy if you want to get a finished product. It's what creates buggy release day products like No Man's Sky.

I'm inclined to agree with this though. CDPR doesn't seem like the type of company that would rush out a crap product. They take their time and release when it's ready.

I'll preorder to get any extras, but that's usually after the review embargo is over.
