I guess they've done it to stop people pre-ordering for nothing, getting any free beta access etc, then cancelling? It doesn't seem to be triggering for retroactive pre-orders (Which is good as I've got about £200 worth), and I'm not 100% sure if it just applies to games at the moment, but it's worth knowing in case you're going on a post-E3 Pre-order spree

I've been doing some digging and spoke to Amazon who've confirmed this is now the case in the UK but couldn't comment on other regions. Charged 2-5 days after ordering. Apparently the rationale behind the change was due to folks cancelling Limited Editions close to release - not sure I buy that being the sole reason but very well may have been a factor.
