bah... so the "shipped- YES" notice was just a really broad interpretation of "shipped"

This looks to be the case, but folks anticipating a delivery a full week or more, before offical release are...deluded at best.

Interestingly though, UK game releases have for a number of years, been shelved on a Friday, and my email, from Ubi UK, says the 17th (Thrusday.) But as long as i recieve my copy on or a day or 2 before. I'll be a happy chimp!

18080 29.99 Yes 21/01/2005 Yes

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif It was shipped on the 11th! That should mean that the game should be in my mailbox by Monday or Tuesday.

i got shipped notice on thursday, so i hope it actually did go out on friday and maybe comes tomorrow or tuesday... but i didnt use fedex.

Well I got told this from the UBI Online store

They have said this:

Dear Customer,

Your order entered in the preparation and delivery process on Friday the 11th, 2005.
The post services will take your order at our office on Monday the 14th, 2005.
You should get it next week.

Thanks

So I'm thinking Tuesday or Wednesday or worse, Thursday
