Have you suddenly been zoomed into fast forward :P It is only the 12th of the mnth, I would be suprised if you got it today or anyone for that matter. If anything I would say monday the earliest.

On a different note: 6 days to go for us in the UK http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ooops......you might have missed something on the forum so http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
I received like many others an email from UBI store that confirmed me my copy and my manual was shipped the 10th. I live in France, 20 km from where the copy was sent....I was expecting the copy to arrive today.
But you are right, it is still 5 days ahead the official release date.....BUT I KNOW MIRACLES EXIST (JESUS TOLD ME !)

Maybe he can deliver them faster, like father christmas...but on a donkey...hey I'd be happy with that if he dropped a copy of SHIII and the recognition Manual into my place!

Yeah, I reckon it will be Monday at the earliest.
I was hoping for today Saturday as well..hmm wonder if it will be by postal courier..anyone know how big the manual is ?
I think if parcel over certain size then maybe courier van instead of old Postie trudging up the road with arms full of SH3 packs. j/k LOL.

I'm betting nnobody will get it until it is officially released. Some of the people who got shipement notices this last week called UBI customer service and UBI told them that the packages were actually being shipped Monday. The only ones getting it early are the ones doing reviews for websites, magazines, etc... The person who posted the screenshots at SimHq for instance is probably doing a review for C6, a major French simulation site.

The earliest I would expect it if you payed for Next-Day air would be Tuesday. I seriously doubt that UBI would break a street date and negate all the pre-orders done through the major retailers like EB, GS, etc..

I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

No worries though. It'll be there sooner or later.

Thank you STEFOSTEF, I have just seen this pic on another thread and made suitable comment to it, LOL.

I will say again here though that the map of the Atlantic is a great offering from Ubi.

Agreed.

I was going to ask about one a while ago but figured, "what are the chances of that happening..there's already a written manual included". VERY nice suprise. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Posties just been and gone, no signs neither although I didnt order from UBI but from Play.com I was quiet surprised when I phoned them yesterday to find out that they had recieved it into stock, what makes it more frustrating is that their warehouse is just 5 minutes away from me but they dont let customers call on them ..booohoooooo

Ok I know a little more now...I checked the UBI store website/my account/my orders and I found that they REALLY posted it as there is a tracking number now. Our french postal service does not give these numbers unless the mail is on its way. So....still two hypothesis...

1) I will get SHIII (oh my...) on monday (god...) like few others members of this community
2) like someone said, the parcels are sent by donkeys and we will get it on the 17th...And maybe I could keep the donkey.

whre does your tracking number say it is at?

anyway im not expecting mine before tuesday or more likely wednesday, cause i didnt take next day air and postie rarely delivers packages on mondays here...

also maybe they ahvent actually shipped it out until monday yet sooo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

no SHIII this weekend http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Is that real? Is that the regcon manual? If so am I the only one that things it looks a bit pants. Its not even the same colour as they showed on the original pictures when ordering. Hmmm, I feel I've been conned into ordering from UBI for that small, pants, plastic book.

I could be wrong http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I guess I was just looking at the main photo they kept showing us. So was assuming it would be hard back and that oranging old look colour and dreaming that it would be leather bound http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
