It’s Not Too Late to Save on Amazon Prime Preorders

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

If you haven’t heard, Amazon is replacing its 20-percent off preorder deal with $ 10 credit “on select games.” That’s bad news for those of us who preordered primarily for the discount. With Gamers Club Unlocked winding down, and Amazon’s preorder pricing coming to a close on August 28, deals on preorders are going to be harder to come by.

However, if you preorder games now, and you’re a Prime member, you can still lock in the discount on a tremendous selection of upcoming titles. We’re about to turn the corner into the busiest release window of the year, so if you want to ensure your 20% savings on upcoming games through Amazon, here’s a list of the most notable eligible upcoming games and links to buy them.

Amazon, Warner Bros. Fight Results In Delays Of Pre-Orders For Some Movies

Everything is NOT awesome between Amazon and Warner Bros. The online retailer has pulled all pre-orders for next week’s DVD and Blu-Ray releases of “The Lego Movie.”

The New York Times reports that Amazon and Warner are locked in a contract battle that’s also seen pre-order delays for other upcoming Warner films, including “300: Rise of an Empire,” “Winter’s Tale” and “Transcendence.”

An Amazon spokesperson reached by the Times would not comment on the business dispute, and Warner Bros. spokesman Jim Noonan told Reuters that his company’s “policy is to not comment on contract points or any proprietary issues involving our partners.”

Fans of Warner Bros. movies aren’t the only ones affected by the dispute.

VizMedia, which produces Japanese animated DVDs such as the “Bleach” and “Naruto” series that are distributed by Warner Bros., has noticed customers posting complaints on Facebook about their inability to pre-order upcoming titles from Amazon.

“Our products are distributed by Warner Brothers, and currently they’re in contract negotiations with Amazon. Pre-orders are disabled while that goes on, but we’re hoping it will be resolved soon,” VizMedia stated on May 29.

Other movie fans have taken to Amazon’s forums to vent.

“I guess I can thank Amazon for steering me back towards brick and mortar stores,” a user named John A. wrote while complaining about the inability to pre-order “The Lego Movie.”

Amazon is also currently fighting with the Hachette publishing company, pulling pre-orders for some books and delaying shipments for others. At one point, Amazon suggested that customers who want those titles shop elsewhere.

Although that dispute remains unresolved, Amazon began restocking some Hachette titles last week.

“Lego Movie,” “300: Rise of an Empire” and “Winter’s Tale” were released online ahead of the DVD and Blu-Ray, and as of this writing, the streaming versions remain available via Amazon Instant Video.
