I'm just wondering how many of you guys ordered Pacific Fighters from EB games...does anyone have a status on it? I ordered mine online with overnight shipping and I haven't seen any change on the website - there are some technical difficulties listed due to GTA San Andreas, but I was wondering if anyone has any info about Pacific Fighters still shipping on time to EB Games. Thank you and I don't mean to whine...just been waiting for this game a while, can't wait to play http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (why do you think I ordered it with overnight shipping? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif).

EB knows squat.

I bought my AEP there, mere seconds after a clerk there told me they weren't going to have it until the next week if at all. There were already a few copies on the shelf.

It seems to me that game stores are beginning to become quite picky about what they'll sell, which is starting to p!ss of the free enterprise consumer in me.

Thats interesting'I just called Gamestop who was suppose to have it in stock today only to be told 'nope maybe tomorrow'Also called EB..same result. Might stop by this afternoon just in case as you say they have no clue as to whats in stock...or they may get a late afternoon shipment.

Well, each store has different clerks. A bad expierence at one doesn't mean they're all bad. i have a good one out here. I'm awaiting my cell phone to ring with the good news...

I recieved a email yesterday from ebworld that the game will be shipping today. I shipped overnight, so i will recieve tomorrow. Around here the (se Mich) stores get the day after most of the time.

Well thanks for all your answers...I hope mine is delivered tomorrow as well...around here (in Maine) it seems EB is generally on top of things and Gamestop is the one that doesn't know ****....weird, eh?

Stopped by EB today. At first the lady said "next month" then she looked in the computer and said "Oh it should arrive Thursday the 28th"

Just got a email from EB.

We are currently expecting that game to ship today, though we have not received it in our warehouse yet from Ubisoft, so it may get pushed until tomorrow. We haven't been informed of any change of date, so we aren't expecting it to get pushed to a later date, though it is possible.

Sweet! I can't wait to get my hands on this game...the only thing I find disappointing is the fact you can't fly the B5N "Kate"...that was my favorite Japanese plane from the old 1942 game (any of you remember that one?). Hope to see a flyable "Kate" in future patches or expansions.

Just got off the phone with my local gamestop. He apologized and said hopefully they would have it on the 28th or 29th.

I see a trend developing here. Went by Gamestop and the kid there said it probably shipped yesterday but all PC games go "2-day" instead of next day unlike there other "more popular" titles.

Lol, I hate EB employees (little brats), I was once talking to a guy about IL2 FB, the kid says to the guy "don't listen to him, he's a moron, buy Cfs3". It pissed me off so much I told the kid "listen you fat little fuc*er, I know your not a minor so I'll have to kick your ***". The client left with FB I left with AEP, and that fat kid left the mall that night looking over his shoulder (who was I kidding , wasn't gonna get arrested in a shopping mall parking with AEP in my hands).

You should have just said "Don't listen to that moron, he works at EB"

We're all restless, we can't wait to play the best WWII simulator for the Pacific Theater, the European belongs to IL2 (of course :P). For the past week, I've got up every morning and checked the various sites for a release date of Pacific Fighters...looks so good. Up here, when I went to buy IL2, the sales associate at Gamestop asked me if it was even a real game. When I went to EB, the guy came right out from behind the counter, showed me where it was and asked if I wanted to reserve a copy of Forgotten Battles Expansion when it was released....seems to be the exact opposite here in terms of store clerks knowledge of games. By the way, I bought CFS3, and hated it in comparison to IL2.

Man...this really does suck that no retailers have it in yet...I ordered overnight shipping from EB games, 4 copies of Pacific Fighters. 3 of which I'm mailing to friend's at college because they can't get off campus to get it and their waiting to play it. We're all waiting anxiously for such a great game to come out, and every day that passes from the intial release date that it doesn't show up on my door step, is another day I ponder ordering from Amazon.com and cancelling my EB games order. This is the first complaint I've had about EB Games, generally I've always had good luck, plus with my bonus gift card I was able to get free overnight shipping. On a separate note; I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really beginning to hate GTA San Andreas for delaying my recieval of Pacific Fighters...*sigh* I guess these days it's great to be a PS2 owner. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
