I have never pre-ordered a game before.. mostly because i dont want to pay for something with out certainty i will get it. But with the recent hype about AION ONLINE i really want to play in the closed betas coming up.
My orginal thoughts were to just wait until an open beta comes or to just wait until the games releases because i'm not to keen on paying just to play in a beta.
Maybe its just the Hype and everyones excitment involving Aion thats almost tricking me into wanting to buy it when i usually wouldn't but i am fed up of watching vids of the game just wanting to log on and play! Another annoying poke is the fact that you get a head start so i wouldn't have to wait as long!
So what im asking is, Do you guys think its a sensible idea me pre-ordering it:
And Mainly.. From people who have pre-ordered MMOs before is it safe and convinient? and does it work not having a hard copy? my fear is that my system will crash and cause me to have to reinstall Aion and it doesnt come with ease not being able to jsut shove a disk in a be done with it.
