Default Anyone preordered Dragon Age 2 from Amazon.ca?

Hi guys,

I preordered my copy of Dragon Age 2 from Amazon.ca late last year, but then later I found out that the listed shipping estimate is about a week after the official 8th March release date. Has anyone who's ever preordered PC games from Amazon Canada ever gotten their preorder on the day of or a few days after the official release? And how's Amazon.ca's reputation regarding honoring preorder bonuses?

I havn't preordered physical copies of many things, but IIRC when my sister ordered her copy of twilight from amazon canada, her copy didn't even SHIP until release date, I think she got hers a week or two after it was released

I did originally, but then a little while ago BioWare said they were going to add new DRM to it - so I cancelled the order. I just found out BioWare dropped the DRM now - damn. You shouldn't have any problems with the pre-order bonus because it's a different version than the current retail package - I am assuming you're talking about the January 11 pre-order package?

Amazon have been very good at emailing when it's been shipped - so if you haven't received notice by today, I'd assume you're not going to see it for a few days. Check your order to see if there's a ship date on it.

That would have been my first and only pre-order. I do have Witcher 2 on for pre-order but it's the digital download version at GOG without any DRM.
