@Phreak - it's exactly how it works now - they pretty much manufacture / supply physical editions to what is pre-ordered with retailers. we often submit those numbers a month or two in advance as well, so we have to guess how many extra we might need for that period between that and launch.
Digital adoption has been really fast with the masses especially after Lockdown - So nobody is risking overstocks anymore
