    Although the pre ordering bonuses have not been revealed yet I will definitely pre order the most expensive edition. (Skyrim comes out 5 days after my birthday so it will be a birthday present)
     
    Are you planning on doing this or just picking up the basic $60 dollar version?

    If I have the money, I would like to. But I probably won't get the game until Christmas

    I'll get it from Amazon, if you want to call that "pre-ordering". I like to call it "not having to go to the store and getting a copy sent right to my door for less than it would cost me to pay sales tax".

    I currently have the 360 version pre-ordered. I plan on pre-ordering both PC and 360 versions. The PC version will be special edition (if there is one) and the 360 version will be regular edition.

    @Twitchey:  Yeah, they'll do that. I think, if you've got Amazon Prime (which I don't) it's free. Otherwise, you can usually get it for 99¢ on most big titles.

    It was given a date of 11/11/11. They really have no choice but to release it on time.

    @bartok:  I hope it doesn't. From the gameplay trailers it looks almost done but I think they are using the whole 11/11/11 release date just to make the game even more special. Also this gives them 8 months to work out glitches and add stuff.

    @ssj4raditz:  That 99 cents seems worth it. I wouldn't want to wait an extra day or two for Skyrim. You have convinced me to order it off Amazon, since Gamestop will be full of people on 11/11/11. I remember my Gamestop when Assassin's Creed came out, one big sausage fest.

    @Twitchey:  Yep, I really appreciate the convenience of the 99¢ Release Day delivery. While hanging out at Gamestop (or a similar game store) for a midnight launch can be occasionally fun, realistically I just can't do it any more because of my job. This way, by the time I get home, the game is sitting in my mailbox, waiting for me to play it. No fuss, no hassle!

    Probably.  I'm not sure where I'll buy it.  I think I'm going to wait and see if they pull any of the pre-order bonus shit, otherwise I'll probably just go with Amazon.com.

    If it's $50, which Bethesda has so far stuck to for PC games, or if I can find a $10 off deal on it if it ends up being $60, I might.  I'll have to consider how much time I have to play games by then.

    I will so pre-order Skyrim, I love TES series, plus I always like to play as a nord and love the whole viking feel so I am so pumped to be in Skyrim for this chapter. Can't wait for this game.

    I don't think so, probably going to see a few reviews and rent the game first. Unless they make a collectors edition that is too awesome to pass up, then maybe. LOL!

    Bethesda normally always does a collector's set, no doubt Skyrim will have one, as it is their "BABY" series and they give more to it than any other. Plus I know some places allow you to switch your pre-order to the collectors edition if one does come out, you just need to play the diff. But you should go with what you feel, for me 10-20 bucks more isn't much to pay to get the CE, Oblivions was pretty cool, I liked the book you got with it.

    I already have it pre-ordered (paid in full atm, will upgrade once they announce a Collector's Edition). I'll probably double dip it with Steam too, though.

    Probably not. I'm sick of paying $60 dollars for games in the first place; I see no reason to pay that much and not be able to play it then, just for some in-game junk.

    also, it's almost definitely getting released on Nov 11. Todd Howard's said that they're basically finished already.

    Yes, through Amazon.  
     
    Whether I get the normal version or "limited edition" or the super-expensive "night vision goggles" edition depends entirely what's included.

    I'm probably the only guy who will say this but.... I love my local Gamestop. The people who work there are regular-ass dudes who like video games too and rarely try and push shit on me.

    After pre-ordering New Vegas I think this time I will wait for reviews before I spend my money. At least this time the game isn't half cut+paste mixed with additional poor code that will critically damage the reputation of the basic engine they have licensed to them (because apparently they have made their own for this game from the ground up). Gamebryo or whatever it is called isn't a bad engine, it's just not suitable for the amazing amount of things this developers likes to put in their games. I'm confident this game will be one of the top five ever made despite my hesitation (yeah, that confident), but I am still not confident enough to pre-order without reading the reviews and getting my friend's opinions on it first.

    Definitely get the game but preorder bonuses on many single player RPGs I've seen lately have been less than incentive to grab it that way versus just going in the first week & buying it. As I don't live in the middle of nowhere, I can usually find a store that has one nearby & if it's gamestop sometimes they have some kind of bonus just for buying it there versus somewhere else. Time will tell when it gets closer to release on if anything will make them different between the retailers.

    Waiting for more info. I didn't get into Oblivion, but a big reason was the lack (that I found) of good side quests (other than the guilds thing), as well as the retarded leveling system, which left me doing the same shit over and over again to boost the skills I cared about, and then again for the major skills. I did love the shit they did with Fallout, so hopefully they took some lessons from that into Skyrim. From what I read in the GI article it sounded really good, so I'm on the fence for now.
