Took someone's advice and did a search for the product on-line and the stores that had it and the one near me had it. I had been there earlier today and didn't see it but when I went back it was there. On top of that, the people are nicer than at EB Games and GameStop, and cute cashier flirted with me. You gotta love Best Buy.

Additonally, it's running great on perfect settings on my Ti-4600. I'm not getting that super-special water, but I'm getting great framerates ande smooth play.

Love the Corsair.

Excuse me while I pout. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

EB says they'll have it tomorrow morning but my confidence in that claim is shaky at best.

Blessed is the day that I get a Gamestop and/or Best Buy in my area. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

EB sucks. They told me yesterday it would be in on October 30. I asked if they actually get shipments on Saturdays and he said yes, but they don't get new releases on Saturday.

Hmmmm.

Got mine at Best Buy today as well, only had 8 copies, then none until Nov. 11th. Funny thing is I was told it is still in the back ten times, then told to call on Sunday, then "wait a minute....did you say Pacific Fighters?!" A woman I spoke to earlier dug one out of the back and saved it for me. Sweet.

Got mine today at Best Buy as well. I was in the store yesterday and saw none on the shelf. Today, I checked online and it said they had copies. So, I went back today after work -- still none on the shelf. I asked a guy about it, he checked, it was in the store, just not put out yet. He went back, brought me out a copy. So, I got it now! :-)

Good for you Chimp and the rest of you!

Yup ... EB dropped the ball this time.

Like I said Best Buy showed them in stock on their store locator. But when I went in they couldn't find them due to the UPS shipping mixup.

Turned out many of the BB here in So Cal had them Thursday nite ... just sitting in a box in the back. I was just lucky the guy knew they came UPS.

I pre-ordered mine from EB and also had a Twilight Zone experience with them. When I called to cancel last night they said they had had many calls on PF so they went online and read posts and all here. The guy had the nerve to say "Ya, right on the site it said 10/26 and we know no one has it yet. We'd be one of the first to get it" I had to remind him that I was canceling because I had picked up my copy at Best Buy and was installing it as we spoke.

They shipped today. Still wouldn't have gotten here till monday (I paid over nite and we all know FedEx and weekends).
