Just contacted UBI-Store. The word is: They will not ship anything anywhere until the 20th of March 07. Nevermind that your pre-order states Shipped. This simply means that they have shipped your copy to the warehouse. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Works out good for Ubisoft, they've got our money already, while we have to wait for SHIV another week. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I hate to seem a bit negative but this is not a high profile release. That being the case, I REALLY hope the decision to hold it for the Euro release isn't becouse the quality is not what it is suppose to be, and they don't want to effect initial sales in Europe from bad press in the US...

There have been a lot of indicators that this game could be less than the expectation but the controdiction is the indicators that dictate otherwise. I'm not a multiplayer guy but it sure seems they put a lot of effort into it...

I guess we will see, I'm an old school sim guy so I REALLY hope this fills the void as SH3 still does...

I hope they are not holding back on shipment while they construct their patches.

Patches? We don't need no stinking patches? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

For heaven's sake, no paranoia here, eh?

Can you imagine the screaming if Ubisoft shipped in the US 10 days before it shipped in Europe?

That's the best post I've seen in here and I've only been a member for a week ...

Come on guys what kind of sub skippers are you anyway? Your never going to be a good captain thinking negative ...

I will sink a Japanese convoy, escorts and all in just 10 more days ... Now repeat that after me ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Im from England and I would rather it was released in the USA this week that way I would be able to tell whether it is buggered up before I buy.
Although from the rumours Im seriously considering now waiting for a few days after the realease to see what the bugs are. Im fed up with buying bugged games and wont buy this one if its beyond playable however much I would like to.
I'll just buy UFO Extraterrestrials instead or Armed Assault.
Personally I refuse to give my hardearned money to firms to quality test for them.
I hope for Ego-softs sake its all just a rumour and thats all.

Well I hope it still gets here before I have to head back out of town for work again, else it will be like 7 to 10 weeks before I get home again.

Now as far as waiting a few days for the bug to be worked out. It won't matter that much if you bought now or waited to buy the DVD will still need to be patched unless you wait till later in the year.

I bought both the US version and the deluxe limited only one of 3000 version.

hey I got 2 computers that can play it, well more then 2 I got 5 that can play it.

Just kept reading "Silent Victory" and playing SH3 and BF2 to try to keep my mind off of it. Spending alot of time on the forums dont help much because it just makes me want it more. Dang, got me both ways....

Armed assault looks a bit iffy. I played the demo, or i should say tried.

I'm still waiting for Armed Assault...... MoH:Airborn..... and some others that got pushed back. This is why i'm NEVER again trusting a release date, because i know its going to change 3-4 times before it's released.

I stand corrected. I had to preorder also. It seems EB games and the like in my area are merging and PC games are becoming hard to come by. This is not good. The last time I was in the store it was 90% console games. They did not guarantee it would be on the shelf.

The EB Games in my area (TN) doesn't stock any new PC games at all.

It's sad that I have to rely on Target and Walmart... WALMART! for my PC games.

But good news is I might be able to buy it just after midnight monday-tuesday and I'll be able to pick up a gallon of milk while I'm at it.
