What I need to know is does anyone know where I can buy AEP off the shelf in the U.K?

You won't find it earlier.

The retailers are not permitted to sell it until the 19th.

The only way you'll get one before friday is by breaking into your local game store. I fancy they'll be there.. just waiting patiently in little stacks

Lol....i can really feel the disappointment! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I did it to myself this a.m. While checking the status of my pre-order I decided to take a look at Amazon and see whether they might be earlier..... I got pretty excited when I saw they were indeed shipping it out - until I realised it was the US page I was looking at!

Guess we'll have to wait another four days.

I got a credit note from a game shop: hope they will have AEP when I rush in waving it on the 19th!
The sight of a grown man trampling over kids to get to the counter only to be disappointed and burst into tears is not a pretty one... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Wow. Madsarmy, that`s really bad of them. They deserve everything they get! I don`t understand the logic of these places! I know what it`s like waiting a whole weekend for something only NOT to get it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif You won`t get AEP off the shelf till Thursday or Friday. I checked today no go anywhere...

p.s.... I think I`ve become a bit more rude myself lately. It`s the waiting.. and enduring all those unappreciative whines about AEP...

The best part is AEP's been on back order from mid Jan & if it's taken them that long to get a game to me thats been out a year. How long will it take to get Aces http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

It is the retail trade that makes me rude. Feed up with poor service,attitudes etc. & were supposed to take it on the chin. We dont complain enough in this country about shoddy service & products. There is an ever growing list of retailers that I refuse to use anymore.

On a lighter note: I would have given good money to have seen my face when I pulled FB out of the jiffy bag.

Oops!

I wonder if I too am getting a second copy of IL2:FB?

I oredered from the same place as you Madsarmy, got an email saying it had been despatched on Thursday.

The fine print at the bottom went on to say something along the lines of:

For popular/large consignments this email is sent out Before despatch.

I guess my order is in that category...'cos I ain't seen nothing yet.

I note that in an earlier thread two others claim to have received their copy of AEP from Strategy.....have they?

Actually, Nomad, that`s my attitude as well. I try not to say anything until it`s there and actually happening, cos you can bet if it can go wrong before it`s working on your HD it will!

Apply it to anything in life. It`s just a matter of time before scientist discover that Sod`s Law (murphy`s law for our US friends) does actually exist! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gifLike physics, etc.
