Right, so first of all sorry for the delayed response -- I just got back into the country this afternoon.

Second, nothing has changed in regard to our preorder bonus availability -- as I posted earlier in this thread, Amazon customers will get the same EVE and DUST items as those who buy from the EVE Store.

Third, the EVE preorder codes were supposed to go out to those who preordered the Collectors Edition on Amazon this week... but apparently didn't. Oops I'll find out the status of that tomorrow and post in this thread as soon as I have a definite ETA. But it is a question of logistics and not any changes to our policy, and should be sorted out as a matter of days,


That's all I was looking for, thanks.

Same. I was just checking in and I had planned a rant. It would have been just a rant though. I had come to terms with not getting any codes until Nov, though I would be miffed. It's awesome to hear we're actually going to get them. Thanks CCP! Apparently my *bittervet* pessimism is unfounded.

Okay, so I'm like 99% sure that the EVE store's CE did not contain game time when it was first released, but now lists a 60-day new account time code in its contents. The problem once again is that Amazon's page does not list this. As I'm pretty sure this is something that CCP have added to their site recently I'm sure this is just taking time to get through to Amazon so not trying to rant here, just seeking clarification from a blue bar dude please.

Contents of the Collector's Edition (and the preorder bonuses) are exactly the same regardless of where you order the box. This bullet point (and some other information that is currently missing, e.g. the Mystery code) will be added to Amazon product page shortly.

News from the front: the new customers should already be getting their EVE preorder codes. Existing orders will be processed (and the codes sent out) today. DUST codes will be also sent out today to both new and existing customers.

The product pages will be updated ASAP (hopefully also later today).

No code for me yet either, but I do not think Amazon has taken my money either. Is there some problem perhaps with Amazon not fully processing orders yet since it's a pre-order?

Amazon wont charge until its shipped when you buy preorders apparently.

Yes, that's what I mean. Is this creating an issue for delivering pre-order codes?

OK, that's weird. Let me check what the hold-up is and get back to you.
