I'm not being sarcastic or snarky, but what about preorders that were made last year?  Do you track the cost when you ordered the game, or when you pick it up?

I think a partially paid preorder should be considered as a deposit, and not as a sale. In the accounting world, I believe the money stores retain on preorders would be considered liabilities rather than assets (even partial preorder payments), since they are still obligated to provide you with goods not yet received. Still, for our purposes, if payment is made in full, or your credit card has been charged, it should count in the year the preorder was made, IMO.

I ordered RS:V before the first, but was billed on the 2nd, so I included it this year, even though I don't have it yet.

Really, let's not take this so seriously. This is just a way to keep track of how much we spend on our hobby. I did spend a lot last year, but I don't have a lot on my list I regret purchasing (even the UMDs). If anyone wants to use a Byzantine accounting scheme to fool themselves, I'm sure we'll expose them for the charlatans they are. And if you pre-paid for games in '06, they're free in '07, baby!
