It was probably in the Vancouver Walmart stores before the Duncan stores.

You have to keep your eyes peeled. I found 2 copies locally in Walmarts (on the Montreal south shore) but spent like 10 minutes going through the games before finding them. Its almost like the store clerks know that people will come looking for them and they get some twisted pleasure in seeing one of us simmers franticly going through the pile of junk they usually sell for our little gem.

It's at EB in Victoria (Bay Centre mall downtown)

At $44...

Maybe drag yourself down here and nab it... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Maybe I missed the announcement. Will 1946 be released in the US? I'd like to buy it.

Only for Canadian Walmart, it seems. They have got some copies of the european version.

No date for a true N.American release. Can only buy it online.

Done 2 Walmarts so far on BC's lower mainland (Delta, & Surrey) on Jan 24 2007....no luck... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Will check a couple Walmarts more shortly. Keeping my fingers crossed....perhaps EB is also an option if someone found it at Victoria's EB.

It's probably printed in the Queens English Old Boy..

It also comes in a handy DVD case and not one of those chop a tree down to make a box version........ no, ours just burns oil http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ok..cause my copies that I've picked up say "Printed in Canada" on the cover art, and they come in a thick DVD type case. The ones that burn oil.

No bonus DVD, and on the game DVD the website printed on it is the canadian Ubi site. www.ubi.com/ca (http://www.ubi.com/ca)

Finally found 1946 at EB Games in Delta, BC (Scott Road)

It was their last copy however.....the store manager told me they had just received it for the first time (brand new release) on Jan 23rd.

It does not say where it has actually been manufactured, but just like the posts says above, its a plastic DVD case with "Il-2 - 1946" color insert only (no nice carboard sleeve like Pacific Figthers) and it has no manual inside absolutely no paperwork whatsoever inside), and just one DVD (no bonus nothing).

That is just fine with me though, as long as it has not been too much trouble to find it in the end. I was afraid I was going to have to order it from a specialized outfit/importer in the US like most people had to do, and many don't ship north across the border, and cause unecessary hassles.

BTW, did not look at any more Walmart, but if one can find it there, you will also save a few bucks as apparantly, its in the $ 37 range at Walmart, while I paid $ 44.99 (all CDN currency) at EB Games.

Regards,

Jagd
