Guess you already had credit? I'm only showing a $10 credit...

Speaking of deals, anyone see any others for launch? This might sound crazy, but even though I won't be playing it for a month or so, I really want to support their launch sales. Maybe then they'll reconsider waiting half a decade between releases.

I had $20 in credit due to a few damaged items. So I redid my preorder to apply it. I will get the $10 credit once the game ships as well.

Seeing as I have 11/11 off because of the holiday, I would go to a midnight release if possible. I can't wait to get my hands on Skyrim.

How is Amazon guaranteeing a release day delivery on Veteran's Day?

Good question. Amazon typically sends mine UPS and I know they still deliver on Veteran's Day.

Thanks. Since UPS delivers on the holiday, maybe I'll go with Amazon if they have a good pre-order deal.

Also on our travels, we came across and similarly murdered a band of camping bandits. Then, while we rifled through their tents for goodies, a wealthy businessman passed by on his way to a wedding in a nearby town accompanied by his wife, who was duly horrified at the corpses in the road. If time hadn't been short we might have tailed them to the wedding and not murdered them for the pricey wedding gifts they were carrying.

Little things like this I think are what make this game so great.

Wow. The difference between xbox and ps3 is amazing. I assume more adults preorder than kids who need to wait for Christmas, etc to get games and always thought the ps3 was the adult console....so more preorders would happen on the ps3 but I guess not.

I think part of it is that Oblivion was a console exclusive for a LONG time, it only recently came to the PS3, so I think not as many people played it on the PS3 and became a fan as compared to the 360 which used this as a launch title.

God, I want them to go back and re-do Oblivion after seeing all of what's been shown for this one. I imagine some enterprising individuals will put out a TC mod for Skyrim to bring a more polished and refined Oblivion to the masses.

Anyone watch the GTTV footage last night. I was deflated to discover that it was not 6 mins of continuous footage. Rather it was an assembly of 50ms gameplay clips tossed in during an interview at rapid pace. On the other hand, it was less spoiler-ish. And it showed some amazing new stuff!!

Has it been double triple confirmed that this game really come out on Friday 11-11? I don't want to waste vacation days if it actually comes out the following Tuesday.
