Rule #1:
NEVER Pre-Order anything.

Rule #2:
Never re-elect anyone.

Rule #3:
Don't whine when you ignore Rules 1 & 2 for you were warned.

Specs:
More expensive than the dining set.
Less expensive than the couch.
Smaller than the dishwasher.
Just as noisy as the refridgerator.
Faster than the cars' computer.
Less practical than the car.
Face it, people who put thier computer specs in thier signature are pretty ****ing wierd.

I learned my lesson well about pre-ordering. All it does is make the marketing dweebs sleep better at night and gets me my game a solid 2-5 days after everyone else picks up a copy off the shelf.

No thanks, unless they're going to pre-ship it to me a week in advance or give me 20% off the price or something. Why give them an interest free loan just for the priveledge of getting my game later than everyone else?

Feh on that.

Europeans write their dates differently than we yanks do. They were correct.

They've gotten the date "correct", they're simply using a European notation for the date: dd-mm-yyyy

Exactly. Notice how the site is British, or did you look at the currency? I guess some people are just not attentive to detail...

I will only pre order from EB Games... that way when it is released I can go over there and get it. pre ordering through the mail has burned me too many times.

I got burned by UBiSoft last time, and so I wrote them a nasty letter. They sent me a $10 gift certificate! The pisser is, I wouldn't ever buy another piece of software from them unless they stopped using retailers! I'll get mine off the shelves this time, just like everyone else did 10 days before me last time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

I pre-ordered AEP from HMV, but on the day it finally came out here in the UK they sent me an email saying they had none in stock.
So I cancelled the pre-order and bought one off the shelf from the HMV shop in town. ???
If I didn't get a discount at HMV I wouldn't go near them ever again.
Cheers!

Surely as we, along with the rest of Europe exported your Population to you, it is we that have it right, simply you that got it messed up and reversed.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I pre ordered my copy in the UK from www.play.com (http://www.play.com) it was despatched early to be with me on the release date and actually arrived the day before..... never faulted them so far http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif They also do DVD region 1 as well as 2 and they take about 2 -3 days delivery compared to Amazon.coms 21 plus to the UK from the States

gotta agree about play.com... i got it before it was released in the uk, and cheaper, but thats because they're based on jersey or the isle of man or one of those islands with the groovy tax rules and the strange variation of UK law.
