Everyone wants a ship date....... drum roll please. Gary Grigsby World At War will start shipping to retail stores on March 28, 2005. We expect it will take a few days to reach the stores. Once we get a better date on when the stores will have the game available we will set the digital download date as well.

I guess someone won't be getting their eBay copy Saturday.

I kid, I kid. (I try to be good, really I do...)

In any event, you guys are really going to be rewarded by the wait. Once the action goes hot in the Gold Pbem, maybe we can get a turn by turn PBEM going.

Well, agreements get made and we set policies that we can't just change because of a delays and not have people get mad. We understand your frustrations and have been working as hard as we can to get it to you as quickly as possible, but if we change policy to suit one set of customers, we hurt our credibility with another set of customers.

Our apologies for the delay. Hey, you will be able to find out if teh WA can manage to come back after losing Britain before you embarrass yourself like I've managed... More school time means less noob mistakes when you get the game ;)

See we just don't want our pbem customers to look bad.. you can spend an extra 2 weeks learnign from our mistakes and come out of the blcoks that much stronger

I was only hoping on false prophets (and a great hope it was...) but I knew, realistically, we'd be seeing this more like late March.

I'll just give my kid $100 next Monday and give him the stupid game whenever it does arrive.

It's not my fault nor these companies fault that this thing has been delayed.

Listen I don't give a **** about the stupid game. I am cancelling my order from ebay and will never buy another product from matrixgames for as long as I live.

I would love to spend more time debating my stance with pathetic video game junkies but I have more pressing issues to attend to on the internet.

Cheers ;)

ROFL...it hasn't been delayed, it hasn't been RELEASED. Maybe this is your first time buying a game from an independent developer but it works like this: The game goes gold, then it is available for download in about 1-2 weeks but, in this case it is getting retail exposure ergo it takes more time to prepare boxed copies and distribute them. To take any iota of information from the links you provided has no more scientific fact than a horoscope. Pardon me for pontificating but anything regarding "E-bay" IMHO is crap, if you know someone special and have bought from them in the past that's wonderful but to think they know a damn thing about when a wargame is going to be ready from production is just a crock of....shizzle!

Well Crap... I wonder if EBGames will refund my pre-order money since I will have to move (leaving military) before the game is released?? I should have learned my lesson when the exact same thing happened with Ultima Online back in 97. Never pre-order games when a move is on the horizon...

EB Games never charges you until it ships, if you placed the order online you can go to "my orders" and choose "cancel my order". They are top notch in my book though they can be a little "Off" on release dates.

Well, this is simply another delay from the date it was posted for release.

Good luck guys hope you eventually get it.

I am going to give HOI 2 I waited this last month and now it is another month it may never acutally be out. If and when it does I can just wait until it drops in price or pick up a copy on Ebay for $10.

Too bad Matrix has not learned retail outlets are a loss not a profit center. Pay for books, boxes, profit for distributor and profit for retail store when a simply DD would have been available now as shown in ALL the releases. Also they could have then sold us a copy of the game in CD with book if they wanted doubling there profit.

Not sure how they could have bought the retail is better idea but guess it is cus I am off to Best Buy to pick up HOI 2 and will pass on this game for a few months at least.

I was worried how I would divide my time between SH3 and GGWaW. Problem solved. By the time I need a break from SH3, GGWaW will be on my doorstep. I just hope SH3 isn't delayed.

I remember when EB had Empires in Arms listed as available for purchase Christmas of 2003. Still waiting for that one eagerly but I know Matrix will eventually get it out. I am going to need to buy a third computer when that one comes out so that I can play WITP, WAW, and EIA all at the same time.

Need a bigger desk too!!!!

Obviously, you are suffering from a bout of selective reading...

If you read any of the posts from Matrix they specifically state their reasons for going the retail route with this release....

1) This is probably their best shot at having a mainstream title that crosses over from the very small world of strategic warfare games.

2) DD is great and their profit margin is big on each individual game sold but total sales are small. Best Buy alone could sell in one day more copies than people download in a month. Selling more copies at a lower margin can ( and will ) equal or better lower sales at a higher margin.

3) Exposure, Exposure, Exposure.... The more copies sold, the more people visit Matrix website. This can ( and will ) generate sales of their other DD only titles....


This all makes perfect sense to me. It might not work but can you blame Matrix for trying? Especially with the crossover possibilities of this title.

I wish them the best of luck.
