heh I've called around a bit too -- my local EB Games says they have that it'll be in stores 3/26 in their computer, so they expected it might come in overnight -- but I didn't sense a whole lot of certainty in his voice

Same here. I called one this morning and they said they might get it today or tomorrow. I was at the mall later and they said the same thing.

My local EB said I could come pick up a copy tomorrow. Without actually saying it they acted like the had some but they weren't putting them on the shelves until tonight.

Same here just got back from the mall not to long ago and the lady at EB said tommorrow 3/26. I told her you don't get games on Saturday she said they do sometimes. So they may get it. I have it on pre-order from EB using the Ship to Store method but I was hoping they perhaps got it in today and I would cancel the pre-order then.

I thought it wasn't going to be for sale until Monday the 28th? Would it not be illegal/not nice for retailers to sell these before that date?

I was told at 3:45 EST that the EBGames store had copies and I could come pick them up tomorrow (Saturday, 3/26) afternoon.

Dunno if this is all smoke and mirrors or the truth. I told them I would be there about noon. If no game....well....there will be trouble....

My students started spring break today....so.....Yehhhhhhhaww! nine days of uninterrupted gaming!!

Thanks Matrix!!!!!!!

Well all the local EB stores didn't get it in today and they told me that they might not get it until NEXT weekend. Really pisses me off the way Matix is jerking us around with the delay in Digital download.

Yeah some people simply aren't happy when they can't bitch at least once a day.

Happy Easter.

Our digital download will be available on Monday March 28th and that is the best we can do. We are sorry for those who can't get a copy today and need to wait to Monday. Thank you for your support.

I can't believe that you guys wouldn't put it out in time for J.C. to get a copy! Now his heaven will be his hell until the digital download is ready! How anti-religious is that I ask?

It's been on Amazon, "Usually ships in 24 hours" with Amazon that means about 3 days, I don't think they ever ship in 24 hours (is it even possible with the amount of customers they get at all different locations etc?)

Exactly, once in a while I need to fire back at people that have not other worries then bitching, spilling half truths and don´t even bother to read thread contents.

My record is 14 hours. I almost fall over at the door when the mailman brought an order I had put at 7 pm the night before.

Nowhere in the forum rules does it say you have to read thread contents! Why didn't you tell us this before this thread got out of hand??

Can't find it in San Diego stores as of PM of 3/28...not too surprised, really. My guess would be Thursday or Friday.
