You can go to http://www.bestbuy.com/ and see if the chain carries it and even if it is available in a local store. I checked at 0600 EDST, 19 March, 2007, and it is not listed.

I used to work at Best Buy... they are very MS friendly... I had to send emails and harass the store manager just to get them to even carry the GOLD pack at my store. When I was there I wound up selling every single copy we got. I set up my copy on a PC and looped the tracks.... folks would walk by and go .."Ooooo what's that!!??" Then I would go into my speil... and I usually sold a Joystick, RAM and/or a video card at the same time.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif Great story Bearcat,I like the pushing the 'good stuff'.

Unfortunately,I've noticed what you mean about MS friendly,when they do have an IL-2 product,there's only 1 or 2. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

When PF was releaced, my Best Bear store had lots of FB and PF boxes, on their own shelf below the MS boxes. Same number of MS and Oleg boxes.

Good luck actually being able to buy it at WalMart. I went to buy it yesterday. At the register they scanned it and it kept coming up, "Not for sale". Even the manager couldnt tell me why. Needless to say I was very ticked off.

Why go buy at Wal-Mart when a local Gamestop or EBgames has it for the same price $29.99, and get this, they will sell it to you, unlike the people at Wal-Mart.

I picked mine up at the local Wally World (the nearest Best Buy/Circuit City/EB are about a 40 minute drive away - W-M is 3 minutes from my work) about 2 hours ago. I've heard of weird things like this happening at W-M before; sometimes a day makes all the difference.
