Amazon is expected tomorrow to roll out the ability for consumers to preorder digital game downloads for PC. Amazon's entry joins a crowded space that includes EA's Origin, Steam, direct2drive, Gamestop, and many other PC game download providers.
What makes Amazon as the enticing destination for a consumer looking to score a hot game? It could be the pricing, which has always been the trump card of the company. An Amazon representative told CNET that "preorder pricing could be up to 30 percent off launch list price."
Doesn't seem like a huge deal, I already thought you could preorder through amazon, but price competition is always nice. General competition with steam/origin wouldn't be bad either.
