I just keep reading and reading about folks who cannot walk into a store in the US and buy PF.

Where have people in the US bought PF that was NOT an online order, or a pre-order?

ANYwhere?

Most likely your local Best Buy has it before the brain less GTA freaks at either Gamestop or EB Games

I like Virginia. If I move out of Taxachussets that's where I'm headed. Beautiful place

Chuck, Best Buy is by far your best bet. Everybody else has said they will have it the 30th. However, EB told me since the 30th was a saturday they "weren't sure" that they would get it that day or monday. I got my copy at best buy but they had to get it out of the back of the store because it hadn't been shelved yet.

I would use best buy's website and do a store search for PF..you might even be able to "buy online, pick it up at the store" the way circuit city does (this would insure they would HAVE to dig in the back to find it since you already paid for it).

Called EB yesterday morning and the said they were unpacking their shipment. Called yesterday afternoon and they said they have PF in stock. Drove by yesterday evening and they said they already sold BOTH copies. WTF!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif Why go the the trouble of sending 2 measly copies to a store? Needless to say I won't be shopping @ EB anymore. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Checked Best Buy online yesterday morning and PF wasnt in stock @ any Northern VA BB. Checked yesterday afternoon and they showed my local (Reston) BB had PF in stock. Drove by immediately saw it wasnt on the shelf and the salesguy couldnt find the 12 copies in the shipment. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif.

Finally found it on shelf @ local BB and bought a copy today for a friend. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Doesn't BB have to sell it to you if their website says they are in stock? I did the online lookup thing and the guy said since it was not on the shelf, he could not sell it to me no matter how many copies they had. A$$holes.

Got mine at a local gamestop in San Diego, Chuck.
But Best Buy seems to be ordering them in the largest numbers.
Good luck !

I just got a copy up here in Canada, I do believe a highly trained group of Eskimos highjacked the American shipment and are now delivering them to all the EB Games in Canada by dogsled http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Just picked up my copies I pre-ordered from GameStop. The guy at the store told me they generally send additional copies along with the ones covering the pre-orders. Might be worth a shot to call your local GameStop and see if they have any. I think you can reserve them for a measly $5. Go get it!

Glad you got yours! I post this here as an FYI, if your in the Austin, Texas area, The Best Buy in San Marcos had about 10 copies on the rack, as of 1pm cst today-and Im told the Research Blvd, store has 12 but cannot be bothered to find or unpack them.

EB is still creeping back a day at a time and the Gamestops that got it only got 1 or 2.

S!

Got mine at Gamestop in Torrance CA Thursday pm. Only some stores have them. You can search by zipcode on their site to see stock levels and see which stores have them coming in.
