What's the deal here? People keep saying that their game is on the way. Does that mean it'll be in stores early as well?

hmmmm.....I have not the answer...only guess..
two theories :
- Ordering directly from UBI Store gave us the privilege to get the game earlier than the official release date
- The shipping notification UBI sent us is not a mistake but the shipping will take one week http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It could be a case of Ubi trying to make sure they don't get slaughtered for pre orders getting shipped late as has happened a few times in the recent past.

Just guessing though. I certainly wouldn't complain if they did release it early!!

EDIT: Just checked Game UK's website. Release date still set for the 18th according to them.

Also read the various posts about early shipping.

I ordered my copy from Ubi E-Store (For the purpose of acuiring the recognition manual (Ubi UK)
I was also billed for the product the same day i ordered it. 16th Jan.
Checked the shipping status on Ubi, and at least for me, shipping is still pending.

I never pre-order because I can always get my desired game in the store just as early...if not earlier. If you guys are getting your copies this weekend, well, color me green.



I just expect a full report by monday morning!!

Same here - my guess is that maybe they're being shipped from a central source (in Germany maybe?) to each country's hq, and then to pre-orderers.

Have fun

I think it's just to certain European countries - US isn't getting them early.

I just got back from the EB Games store in Delray Beach, Florida where I preordered it. They are expecting the mailman to arrive at the store on March 16, next Wednesday.

But as can be seen, my post was not a serious post.
It was a sort of hint (the smiley was meant for that) to say it's a pity I still have classes next week. And even slightly more classes then normal.

Murphy's law will get the best of me. Watch I will get my preorder after all major snow storms, also mine maybe damaged because its just the way it is. I ordered online one time and got 2 keyboard overlays in a Deltaforce Land Warrior game box and NO CD! I couldnt believe it! EAgames did sent me another copy amazingly.

Never happened to me niether, but then again, i never used Ubi E-Store before, and would have not used them in this instance, if it wasn't for the recognition manual.
