To be honest I can't see what the problem is. You register then get an email on the 19th saying you can order on the 20th. On the 20th you order. Job done in 2 minutes.
This is similar to the system used for CoH, except that then they emailed on the day of release. I don't remember any complaints then. If anything, I prefer them to email the day before because then I can order at work. With CoH I didn't see the email until I got home in the evening.
Pre-order may not have been the best term to use, but as you haven't given any payment details (as you would for an Amazon pre-order) its not really an order as you haven't actually commited to buying, just expressed an interest. They probably got hundreds if not 1000s of people registering, so could hardly reserve copies for everybody.
I got a message on my answerphone a week or two ago asking me to ring them about the book, but I forgot about it at the time. Not sure if it was the superdeluxe or normal deluxe edition they were calling about.
I ordered at about 10am yesterday.
