nice. My friend's friend said that he talked to a gamestop guy who told him it was delayed til the 21st...apparently not. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I can't believe that guy said that...unless my friend's friend made it up.

Heh, if you didn't preorder it don't buy it at a place like Gamestop or EB if you can avoid it. They screw with you by making you wait a day just to 'encourage' you to preorder. Best Buy, Walmart, Circuit City, call around, they usually have any decent release the same day as Gamestop/EB. Sometimes all retail stores (EB/GS included) don't receive a game till the day after street date (this is the producer waiting to long to ship), but if EB/Gamestop is selling preorders only on the 13th that's an indication that they're choosing to mess with you, and alternatives like BB/CC/Walmart will have it.

I've gotten so irritated at the way EB/Gamestop behave (punishing non preorders, intentionally shorting their stock levels and pointing out how lucky you are) over the last decade I won't buy a game from them unless it's an obscure title not worthy of the shelf space at a Best Buy or Circuit City.

It better come out on the 13th since Gamestop has advertised everywhere that it does. http://print.canalgame.com/images/Image/linkwarx/banner%20assasins%20creed.jpg

I just got off the phone with a friend at the local Gamestop. He said they arent expecting it until wednesday around 12-1 pm. I have had it preordered for about 6 months now.. <sigh> Oh well I guess one more day wont hurt.

I got the same answer from the Gamestop that I pre-ordered from. It's just one more day, it's not the end of the world.

It's looking like it just depends on the area you're in. I stopped by my local gamestop about an hour ago, and the guy told me it would be in tomorrow, (the 13th).

When I went to go to pick up COD4 the lady said the game ships on the 13th so they may or may not have it until 14th. All depends on location

I talked to my Game Crazy manager yesterday. He said to come pick it up today. Looks like I win!
Well, actually, that's not true. It's Veteran's Day and the bank is closed, so although I can indeed go pick up AC today, I cannot buy the Xbox 360 with which to play it. Stupid lazy bank.

(This taunt was brought to you by Game Crazy. Buy. Sell. Trade.)

For those who would like to hear it for themselves call 800-883-8895, which is the gamestop info line. Sounds like it ships tomorrow and prob wont be available till wednesday. Spoke to the local store by me and they said they may not even have enough copies for the reserves based on the amount reserved already!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

****!!! I just talked to one of the local stores, said they'll get it Wed, Thurs, or Friday....Gamestop on the other hand said that they'll be getting it on wednesday...and I might not be able to pre-order it because I can't drive there and put 5 bucks down...

Wait so when can you pick it up in Canada if you pre ordered it?

I'll have to call tomorrow again, then.

I called today, and said I had a pre-order. Still, on the 14th, he said.

I thought here in New York, we'd get the game on the 13th too, but I guess I was wrong.

I think it's honestly different from gamestop to gamestop (maybe) for whatever reason. I talked to 3 different gamestops today and they all said its shipping out the 13th (Tuesday), and getting there the 14th (Wednesday). BUT, when I went in today to reserve it they said they will most likely be getting some in tomorrow afternoon/night. The cashier recommended giving them a call in the late afternoon (which I intend on doing) to see if the shipment is in or not.

I would recommend giving your gamestop a call (if you have it reserved) in the later afternoon tomorrow just to check.. I know it's only one day and if they don't have it it really isn't that big of a deal, but it would be sweet to be playing tomorrow night http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Disappointing too. What bothers me is that I'd had though the pre-order would get me it earlier, otherwise...a pre-order was not necessary if I could just easily og an pick it up the first day.

Although, that art sounds pretty sweet anyways, so no problem for me.

Where in NY are you? In the city? I asked at the GS at 33rd & Broadway and they told me that they would have it in today (the 13th) at around noon.

EDIT: I just called and apparently they're only going to be selling it tomorrow...they really have some logistics problems going on there.

I haven't even gotten a phone call yet. Which, isn't surprising. I went and picked up sKATE and got a phone call to pick it up...5 days after I already picked it up.
