Most don't seem to realize this. The payment plan justification is odd too. You can't just hold onto all of that money, minus the NRD. then pay the rest off when it actually ships? People complain when they've paid off all but one payment and that money sits and sits and sits until it actually ships. What was a year now is 1.5 year at least, many now hitting the 2 year mark. I guess they are worried they would spend the money on something else.You have 1.5 years to choose. No need to PO. There is always plenty once released.
I’m not someone that likes things “up in the air”, if i pay for it now, it’s ordered, finalised, and i don’t need to think about it till i get it. Box ticked, into the next thing.I also think its a security thing -- knowing you have "locked one up". It fits the "collector" mindset -- control.
