Hi all,

I just picked-up a copy of PF from BestBuy in Maryland. I called EB and Gamestop and none of them had it in stock yet.

Not sure if BestBuy has it in your location but it is worth checking.

Go to the Best buy website and search for Pacific Fighters. Then do a Check Nearby Stores or whatever it is called. that tells you which stores in your area have it in stock. Handy feature.

Just tried EB at lunch in Springfield, Ohio. Nothin'

I went to two Best Buys in VA that are listed as having them, but they weren't in. This was at noon. So the website appears to only list stores that may be getting them in.

The guy at the gamestop here- said tomorrow yesterday- and just gave me a shrug today and said He didn't know why they haven't arrived yet as they should of arrived yesterday. But to check in later as they might arrive later today but- certainly- no later than tomorrow.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiigghht!

Thinking about taking a long azz drive on a nice and narrow road over the hill to San Jose and the huge frys electronics there. Or just going back to bed for the rest of the day and sleeping till tomorrow. Shame about all the stuff I have to do today though.

It's pretty funny if you think about it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I just got mine at the Gaithersburg MD Best Buy. It wasn't on the shelf, but I asked the sales people there when it was due in. They looked in their computer and said they had 12(now 11) copies.

Saw your post and called my local Best Buy and sure enough they had it.....I now have my copy, of course I had to wait for the truck to unload. No big deal, I still got it.

I went to one that said they had it on the locator and they didn't have any in stock. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif I really don't think that my area would sell out in one day.

The Best Buy near me has it!!! I'm heading out the door in a bit to get it. It's going to be a late night. I'll bet it goes on sale shortly as well...oesn't Best Buy have a price protection policy?

Looks like Best Buy is "The Man" if you want a copy today.

You know that actually ticks me off a bit. I preordered it about 3 weeks ago from best buy but they backordered me to the 1st a day or so ago- after bumping me up from the 11th the week before. And then go ahead and put it on their shelves? But not in my area?

WTH is with that? Well besides sour grapes on my part that is.

Best Buy at LakeLine mall in Cedar Park (Austin) TX has 11 left in the back. I made them dig for it but I've got it. Went from there straight to EB to get my refund for my pre-order.

Made a call out to the wife who was on the way home to swing by BestBuy and pick it up for me (why go out when she has to pass right by the place). I'm in the Saratoga Springs, NY area. Salesperson was very unhelpful and could not locate a copy even though the website said it was there. Wife calls and informs me of this. Dispondent, I tell her to check across the street at Babbages. Score!!!! They had it and I just got it in my sweaty little hands. I'm off to install!!

I agree. The salespeople suck. I've noticed this in several stores over the course of several game releases. Whenever you call them to ask about availability of a product, they probably put you on hold for 5 mins, talk with their buddy and tell you they don't have it, and they don't plan on getting it. He went so far as to say that it wasn't on their shelves or in the back. I go and check their shelves and smack dab, there's like 10 copies on one shelf alone.

Go figure.

I cancelled my order with ebworld and went over to BestBuy to pick it up (website said my store had it).

The game wasn't on the shelf, so I asked a salesperson for help. He looked it up and then retrieved it from receiving. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, you are lucky. My Best Buy says the computer shows 8 copies in stock, and that it is probably packed up in the back. This was at 4:00pm. Called back at 8:00pm and no progress, was told to call back tomorrow and that the 8 shown copies may be a mistake. They have been nice about it, but ****, I would go unpack it myself if they would let me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif. I can wait until tomorrow, but I really hope they have some in-stock.

I just came back from BestBuy in White Marsh, MD.
They had a dozen. Now that I have been there, the count is 11. Go get'em!
Going to install now.
