Quoted from frolic:
I wonder if something like asking pre orders to downgrade to a nominal $250 deposit. So they still are on the list as a buyer, but it's demonstrated that their money isn't needed until shipment.
Something like that would be nice, I think. I have thought about requesting that they refund me only my second payment, leaving me with my initially $1500 deposit because, while I do still want the game, I'd (understandably) rather "downgrade" my risk some if possible. I may do so when I speak with them although I haven't been contacted at all yet.
Another concern is that I may still want to downgrade my LE order to a standard, but I won't decide that until I actually see an LE produced. If I choose to do that are they going to want to charge me the "increased" price for a standard and/or bump me to the back of the line for standard orders even though I've had cash in since Oct '15? Either of those scenarios would be a no-go for me and downright offensive, so I sincerely hope they're reasonable about it.
