so FIFA 13 finally announced a release date, September 28th, and announced pre-order bonuses, etc. it even says "pre-order FIFA 13" on xbox.com, xbox mobile app, etc. I order all my games through amazon. I went on amazon to place my pre-order and it says the release date is December 31st. is it safe to pre-order? are they gonna fix the date or is something gonna go wrong if i pre-order before they change it.

It's fine to pre-order it now, your order will still be intact when they change the release date.

nevermind... i'm gonna wait anyway. i went through with the order and there's no "Release date shipping" option. maybe they'll add it as they fix the release date. if not, i'll be pre-ordering through GameStop, as much as i hate that =/

You're fine to order it now, the 12/31/12 date is a popular place holder date sites use until they learn the release date and update their systems. Also with Amazon you just need to choose 2 day shipping, it's the same as release day. You will receive an email down the road telling you your shipping status has been upgraded to release day. Happened for me with Halo 4, Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed 3. Order away buddy :)

Yeah, this exactly. Amazon is real good about that, it's happened to me with more games than I could count.

Your in trouble now. Don't be surprised if they send you a copy of Dance Central 2 by mistake.
