    Amazon Pre-order UPS or USPS

    Does anyone know which carrier Amazon will use to deliver pre-orders in the US: UPS or USPS?

    Pretty sure they either use UPS or FedEx.

    Why not just buy directly from Blizzard? As far as I know it's the same price and you get it immediately. Is there a downside?

    he might just want a hard copy?...

    And if its like EU pricing the digital download is significantly more expensive (roughly 1/3rd more).

    You get to play ~20 minutes earlier with a hard copy.

    Say huh? They said installing from disc or decrypting take roughly the same time. And unless your peorder is lucky to arrive on the 14th you have to go to a midnight launch or wait for the postie on the 15th. Meanwhile digital copy players are ballz deep in demon blood.

    Oh, I thought the majority of hard copy pre-orders arrived on the 14th, available for pickup...?

    Re: Amazon Pre-order UPS or USPS

    Happy to live in germany as a gamer. The country is so small that amazon is always able to deliver my games at least 1 day before release. Had my copy of SC2 lying around for 4 days before i could play it. But that can be even more unnerving. But the best experience i had with game deliveries was with Modern Warfare 2. I was just about to wake up as the mailman rang the bell, so i was happy right from the beginning of that day and didt have to wait either way. Tho getting my D3 CE before release wouldnt be bad at all.
