    thanks for the summary!

    i've decided to pay the 30$ extra charge + the slightly more expensive cost and get it from EB-games. i wished i could order other stuff too without it being sent in seperate packages

      ok, i've seen that you can also order from the take2games site. and shipping costs are "only" 17$ (13 less than at EBgames!) :

      Code:
      Your Order	 
      Item	Name	 	SubTotal	 
      1	Civilization IV Pre-Order Edition - PC (Pre-order)	49.99	 
      Subtotal:		49.99	 
      Shipping:		17.15	 
      Tax:		0.00	 
      Total:		67.14	 
      Note: Unable to determine quantity available for some items at this time.

        Amazon US has dropped the price of Civilization IV to $44.99.

        This create an advantage over EB Games which still prices Civ4 at $49.99 and has a minimum of $2.49 shippping cost for US orders (as opposed to Amazon's free US shipping). EB Games though is still the only for ordering the Pre-Order edition from Europe.

        We should note that all European (UK, FR, DE) Amazon stores offer free shipping or their respective countries (UK, France, Germany). Our Pre-Order guide has been updated accordingly.

            Incidentally, Amazon UK have been selling Civ 4 for 24.99 for quite a while now (not 29.99).

              Chips&Bits doesn't react to my e-mail regarding the pre-order edition. I want to cancel my order and order the pre-order edition through another retailer.

              Is it easy to cancel a C&B order?

                You should not cancel your Chips & Bits order, or else Markos would have to pay back the 0.00173 cents he got for your click.

                    i didnt know about direct take2 orders until now

                    C&B only offers the retail version, not the pre-order one

                        actually we get $5 for each Civ4 order which we give to you in the form of a $6-worth, 3-months PLUS subscription

                        (the same amounts dont apply to amazon or eb games sales...)

                            just got this from take2 store:

                            Good Morning,

                            Thanks for your pre-order of Civilization IV PC. We will ship out all pre-orders as soon as the game arrives
                            in our warehouse. This is often the day before the official release date, but we cannot guarantee that we
                            will have the game before that date. You will receive the game according to the shipping method you chose
                            when placing the order. Therefore, if you picked "next-day-air" shipping, you should get the game on
                            10/24/05, if we receive the inventory according to plan.

                            Thanks for your order and we hope you enjoy the game.
