Gonna check the GS I preordered at tomorrow. I preordered with debit, so if I want my money back, I have to wait "3-5 business days" (according to them) to receive my money back on my card (no wait if I choose to get money back as a GS gift card, or they can give cash on amounts below $20).
If they have the game tomorrow (as per promised on my receipt and in-store, "Pre-Order Guaranteed In Stock 02/04), I'll nab my physical copy.
If they KNOW it will come on the 5th, I'll wait the one more day.
If I ask them tomorrow, and they say they have NO IDEA or pull that "it'll ship to our store on the 8th", I'll just withdraw my pre-order as $40 in eShop cards and ~$5 cash. With leftover eShop wallet money and the $40, I can get FE, and with the cash, I'll buy a 4GB SD card from Wal Mart right across the street.
