Why Preordering 'Halo 5,' Other Games Isn't Such A Good Idea
Preorders went live for "Halo 5: Guardians" Monday, but you won't be missing much if you hold out for the actual release date.By Ben Lawson | December 29, 2014
Preorders for "Halo 5: Guardians" went live today and if these last few months of game releases have taught us anything, it's that immediately reserving yourself a copy months before launch might not be such a good idea.
"Halo 5" will certainly be one of the biggest Xbox One exclusives to launch in 2015 and there will no doubt be a huge number of preorders, even now when the game doesn't have an official release date yet.
But even with a preorder, there is no guarantee the game will be good or even work right on day one.
