Because I'm hearing stories that I could get the first edition bundle a day or 2 early even before the day of the early week release. Is this true?

Well Amazon does release day delivery so they ship it before the actual release date so it might get there a little early if you live close by to where the shipment is coming from, but generally no, they're more likely focused on making sure you get it on the 15th and might not ship until the 14th it just depends on how their release day delivery system works. If they want to make sure people get it on the 15th, then they might ship it two days early and it might come sometime late on the 14th, all depends.

I agree with that.

they ship it out at a time that should get it to you for launch, and due to this they sometimes give a big enough gap that ends up getting you an item before its "release"

They ship it the day before it's going to be released and overnight it to you so you get it on release day. I have pre ordered a few games on amazon and never gotten them before release day.
