I think it's more likely that they didn't take the time to track what pre-order sites got what pre-order codes. Laziness on logistics' part.

Yeah. In Canada, EB Games told me that I would get the Constitution, but guess what I didn't get? THE CONSTITUTION I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION I WAS BUYING! Alas, I put up a ticket for it, but I'm sure by the time it gets looked at, the constitution wont be avail anymore or something. In the mean time, has anyone noticed how PLANET VULCAN HAS LICHTS THAT CAN BE SEEN FROM ORBIT THAT ARE REALLY JUST A COPY-PASTE OF THE EUROPEAN LIGHTS ON THE PLANET EARTH MODEL TEXTURES? TAKE A LOOK, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE ITALY! LOOK FOR A BOOT SHAPED COUNTRY!

LOL
cheeck it out. the image of ITALY ON VULCAN is in my photobucket link!

you are thinking in terms of people who would only pre-order one game.

There have been people who pre-ordered from every retailer. They could cancel all but one and still get all the other pre-orders if they didn't need the retail key. As I said in another thread there were better ways to do it, for example allowing the retailers to release the game early to the people who pre-ordered it, which would also allow them to charge them when the released the game.

Now that is what I was hoping they'd do. For example I pre-ordered from Gamestop, so what would've been nice would be that I walk in, show my receipt as proof of having purchased the whole game, and walk out with a nice, shiny STO CE box with the Connie code, and have all that happen today. Rather than on Tuesday...

So?

You get a months free play with the pre-orders, so if you order from a shop you can return it within the month and get a refund by saying something like "It doesnt work". So, there is no logic to your argument.

It still doesnt explain why people who have payed for the game and have downloaded the game already cant have their retail keys now.
