Now that Amazon has yanked its 20-percent pre-order perk for Prime subscribers, more games will apparently start to be available to purchase from the retailer ahead of their respective launch dates.
One recent example is the availability of the physical standard edition of Spider-Man for PlayStation 4, which Insomniac Games Community Director James Stevenson said can now be pre-ordered through Amazon.
Before, a number of notable titles were unavailable to pre-order, including Spider-Man and titles published by EA, according to Kotaku. However, now that the Prime perk has been abandoned, gamers should start to see some of the year’s biggest titles available on the site.
For many gamers, the Prime perk was a big reason to pay Amazon’s annual subscription fee, which has risen in cost over the past few years. They figured that saving 20-percent on games they would get anyway made a subscription worthwhile over a 12-month period.
Now that the perk is gone, however, some gamers feel a Prime subscription is far less appealing. As a replacement, Amazon is offering a far more restrictive program that offers Prime members a $10 credit with a pre-order on select titles.
Although Insomniac’s Stevenson said Spider-Man for PS4 can be pre-ordered through Amazon ahead of its September 7 launch date, it’s currently unavailable as of this writing.
As Kotaku notes, other major titles such as Battlefield V and Red Dead Redemption 2 are also unavailable to pre-order, with no word on if they’ll be available before they launch later this year.
