1.) I Paid 8 dollars for 2nd day delivery..which now means after the weeked due to the late week shipping.

2.) I paid an extra 8 dollars.. for something I don't have yet.

3.) There are about 90 copies of it within 5 miles of my house at 5 different stores.. just sitting there tormenting me..

4.) Its Friday night and my squad will be flying it in a couple of hours..

5.) UPS tracking shows mine just left Louisville Kentucky bound for Boston.. I hope it had a good time in Louisville..

6.) More to follow...

My nephew lives out there. He said he saw your copy boozing it up at a local strip joint, throwing a lot of cash around and being real rowdy.

I would go to the store and buy one then return the un-opened one from UBI to the store. Just a thought. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Thats EXACTLY what I did when I pre-ordered CFS3 from Amazon.com. After a few days I couldnt take it anymore so I bought it anyway..... needless to say..... When I finally got my copy from Amazon I just sent it back unopened. AFAIC.. I'll NEVER pre order anything that way again. What you do is, go to your local EB Games..or someone just as good..and pre order it there... and then you are pretty much gauranteed to have it by release day... when the rest of the public gets it. I thought that by pre-ordering I might get it like.. a day sooner or something...... enh enh.. NOT

And that's why they call it pre-ORDERING instead of pre-RECEIVING http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I never pre-order.

Especially from Ubi - they have shown enough incompetence to scare me away.

Well, since there seemed to be interest in the subject I called Chris, (my nephew), and asked him if he had anymore details on the story. (I don't know what he was doing at the strip joint, but he's young so...) Anyway.. He said the guys copy od AEP and his gang of cronies got totally wasted. It was VERY late when they all finaly piled in their limo and left for Boston. He said they were all 'drunk singing' the old Beastie Boys song, "No Sleep 'Till Brooklyn", but substituting Boston for Brooklyn.

Hope they didn't get rowdy on the plane, air security is pretty tight nowadays...

You paid eight dollars to get it after the weekend? You were ripped off. I made the mistake of preordering it but I opted for the free shipping and am getting it at the same time you are.

If you have the store order it for you t=you can just pick it up when the store gets it. I had mine on my HD and buzzing by 1230 on Wed. I did the same thing with FB..... its the only way to go for me with pre ordering. Even if you DO get it sent to you you have to pay extra for that...BS.. Ill walk to the store and pick it up.

Patience is a virtue, a sign of maturity.

That's why I own two copies now; one I bought at EB this morning, the other somewhere between Louisville and California (pre-ordered, expected delivery March 8.) Ubi will get that one back.
