It's called good PR.

The PC market is horrendously tiny (unfortunately) in the multiplatform aspect. The same people begging for it on PC and then waiting 2 years to get it at $5 doesn't help either.

I know someone who walked straight into game and it was there, and I ordered it online -_-

Wish I knew they were gonna restock, would of asked them to get me one

Preordering from Amazon (or online anywhere) is useless these days.

I originally ordered it off amazon. Friday (the 13th of all days), I get an email explaining that “launch delivery was not available” and that my copy would be delivered between the 23rd and 26th. I promptly called Amazon (like 5 mins after waking up to this email) and cancelled the order, ran over to Wal Mart, put in my preorder, got it on launch.

Ah, didn't know that. Fair enough.
