If it gets to a local store first, then I'll own two copies. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Well, I've already pre-ordered and just hope the damn thing turns up at the same time as it hits the shelves.

Nothing quite like being locked out of Hyperlobby as everyone inside is on a new version, and all you can hear from outside is the sound of lots of other people having fun.

No Way!

Nothing beats the rush of taking a day off work to zoom around the city looking for copies to hold in your very own hands. Seriously http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And then you take the next day off too because you are having so much fun playing. I actually scheduled vacation time when FB was released.

And d@mn it was fun doing that!

I pre-ordered my copy at Electronics Boutique (EBGames) here in Canada. $45.something in Canadian funds (incl. tax). Guaranteed to be that or lower regardless of actual price when released. Benefit of pre-ordering.

I noticed over at Staples IL-2 & IL-2FB games for under $20 (you can get IL-2 along with 2 other games in a combo pack in department stores for that price also).

I don't see the point of pre-ordering. I'l go to Best Buy instead of waiting for it to ship.

I voted yes.

I live in Newbrunswick, 45 min from fredricton. So i fingerd it would make things a little easier. I even got the Gold pack, so now i dont ever have to down load 1.22 on dial up lol.

I pre-ordered from HMV here in the UK because it will only cost me ‚£15.29 inc P&P. I just hope that it appears on time!

Well MapleTiger I'm just down the road in Saint John! I am originally from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, but been in Saint John for over 11 years. Great to know there are others in NB enjoying this game.

I pre-ordered mine. I can wait until it arrives at my doorstep. I **HATE** going to the mall to shop. More and more of my purchases are done online.

Gonna go to Fry's to pick up my copy. I can go during work since I can use the excuse that we need network cables or a hard drive for some system or another.

Has anyone worked out a good excuse for why you would be using a joystick at the office? "Uh, hi boss, I have a joystick because I progammed all these buttons to perform shortcuts in Excel..." or something. Oh well, I guess it's better for my career that flying with the keyboard sucks.

UBI, in the past, has shipped before their products arrive in stores.

Pre-ordered it. All the stores around where I live don't get anything new until about a month after it's been released.

The only way I would pre-order these days is if there were some sort of guarantee that I would be able to have it in-hand a day or two before it were available on the shelf. I have no trouble venturing out on the day of release to pick up one of the first copies in my area and the guys at EB know me by name...heck, my wife says I have my own parking place at Best-Buy and I don't work there!

No way. I like driving out and grabbing me copy at the store. I pre-ordered FB, and it came to my house before it got to stores in my area, but still I'd prefer to just pick it up in person.

BTW, I still have yet to see a final list of what's going to be in the Aces box. If I buy, It'll be after I know what's inside the thing.

You are going to buy it anyways, despite what's in it... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Unless you don't like playing online. lol

Everytime I drive somewhere outside of my neighborhood in New Orleans, someone tries to kill me. I pre-ordered for safety's sake! (and to help out netwings)

I just like spending money unecessarily... I also buy games I never really intend to play I think because I am simultaneously stupid and insane. But I really think there's hope for me as stupidity is my main quality. Insanity I think I currently have at bay.

Also, my wife has agreed to keep me as long as I continue to amuse her.. But I am running out of good material and I think my days are numbered.

Is there anyone here in the entertainment business who could come over and fill in for me while I fly?

Uhhh., Actually... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif I see where that could be a problem....for me... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif...nm.. I'll take care of my own wife..

Let's see... why did I really come here to post? OH YEAH:

Does anyone have any money I can borrow, so I can pre-order a few extra copies of the Expansion Pack.. That way if one or more get delayed I have a better chance of one getting through sooner... Wow. What a great idea! I think I just broke free of my stupidity syndrome.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here in Indiana I couldn't find FB when it first came out until about March the 6th or 8th, or something like that. All I know is I was reading about people playing the game way before me, some for days. Both those that bought it at stores and people who pre-ordered it received it before me. I was hopping mad, so I'll probably pre-order this time. Sometimes I think frikken Alaska gets stuff like that before Indiana does!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

No need to pre order for me. It seems like I have plenty of time to buy it and not enough time to play it.

Well, I didn't pre-order it from the UBI site since it must travel all across the ocean to reach me (wich probably costs more then the game itself) but, rather pre-ordered it from site within the BeNeLux wich won't ask for posting money.

I probably won't be able to fly it until the weekends. And so, it will be a pleasant surprise if I come home, tired from work, and FB aces expansiion pack lies on the floor http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It would probably make up my whole day http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
