Game Spot sucks monkey b*lls. Called me early this week to say it would be in on time, after calling all this week today they said it "might" be in on the 9th.

I heard other guys are having problems with Game Spot too. That true?

Last year when FB was released, EB was bad and Game Spot good. Just the opposite this year. EB is good and Game Spot bad. Maybe management changed. Who knows? If you pre-ordered, you can always get your $5 back.
Once you get AEP installed, how quickly you'll forget the BS. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Problem is EB isn't nation wide, large areas of the country they have no stores. Gamespot bites, but for some of us it's all there is within 500 miles. Looks like monday. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

EB hasn't screwed up for me.
Been the cornerstone of gamers for years.

I know. I ordered online from EB Wednesday specifically because their site said "ships in 24 hrs." and Gamestop's site was still in pre-order mode. Now my EB order has shipped, and I check on Gamestop and they now say "Pre-order. expected Mar. 8, 2004" !?

I never trusted game-spot.

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured
to you again.

Yeah I can definitely confirm that, my local Gamestop said the 9th of March, they su**. I had the same problem with Call of Duty. should have learned my lesson the first time. The closest EB to me is 60 miles away. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Boy - did they drop the ball or what? I preordered sometime ago from local store( quicker delivery I was assured...)& when others had it Gamestop didn't & still doesn't so far as I know ...What did I do? Went to Gamestop got a refund , walked across the street & bought a copy from EB Games ( they had plenty...) - that is the last Gamestop will see of me...As if they care , of course!
