Big games arrive a day or two earlier with strict rules that NOBODY, even management, can open the boxes or break the street date.

However, most games arrive the same day of the street date.

EB stores isnt what it used to be and anyways they charge tax if its an online order. In the store though now in my area there is 2 stores and in their store they have mostly Xbox junk. Only a small shelf for PC stuff. I waited for 10am for them to open the store and nothing came in the day a game was scheduled. Another thing also is they have a bad habbit of insainly ordering only 5 copys of a PC title to put on the shelf if its a new game. Really p i s s e s! me off

EB: Item can arrive a week before it is released or the same day (or any time inbetween for that matter) it is released. For sale when the "street date" arrives. NOT before.

CompUSA: Item arrives and is put on the shelf the same day (products usually arrive after they are officially released, except in special cases).

BestBuy: Pretty much the same as CompUSA.
