Did you miss last week's deep discount?

I pretty much always pay that at launch so I get the savings and get to play at launch

To be fair, this seems to be the norms for all new releases published by Square-Enix. Hitman, Deus Ex, Final Fantasy XII and XV, previous Tomb Raider, Dragon Quest, etc. They all follow the same pattern where 3 to 4 weeks after release they will already be on sale up to 50%.

That can even be true for PS4 games, I remember FFXV being 40$ even 3 weeks after release (Physical on Amazon). Noticing that trend, I stopped buying SE games on release OR to be fair, you can probably get a permanent 25%+ discounts on legit 3rd party websites too for steam keys.

It is almost never a good thing to preorder a game. It will probably be buggy. Look at that. A HotFix? That has never happened before. In the time they release proper patches (1-2 weeks) it will be on sale. So if you w8 a bit, you get better gaming experience for less money. It is win-win.
