Yeah the guy said they may get it on the 7th or 8th. Anyone else encounter this? If this is true perhaps a the big N will do a d/lable version on the 3rd and print copies release later to boost electronic sales? Sounds plausible.

called corporate and they said that date is only for Canada not the US. He said they were instructed to do it, so my guess is its only for Gamestop/EB games as a backlash for the early release.

Wouldn't that contradict the commercials saying in stores Feb 4th?

I just got back from Gamestop. The guy told me the street date is broken and that he may get it Sunday/Monday but he's not really sure. So I go to WalMart to check it out and they have no idea when they're getting it. I go home and call a different Gamestop closeby and they tell me there is no street date and they wont get it until the 8th, they're not doing anymore preorders and if I didn't preorer it it may be hard to obtain. Then I call Best Buy AND Target and they both tell me they have no clue when the game is coming in.

Man I wish I preordered it, I'm probably getting screwed now :(

Same thing my guy said. Like a poster above, I also didn't preorder but I licked out as they had an extra art book. Dude put my name on it and told me to call Thursday and if its in, I can pick up the game and the art book then.

The GameStop employee I spoke to on the phone a few days ago didn't say anything about the street date being lifted, it sounded as if he was reading a script, he was so, I don't know, generic sounding? Like a pre recorded response to my question. I'll have to call again later today to see if they changed anything g.
