Thursday and Friday night is when I'll make my attempt a JB HiFi..

Has anyone in Melbourne confirmed or denied this? I work in the city, so can go grab it on my lunch break if that's the case.

I checked in JB Hifi yesterday on the VERY off chance it was released way early, but to no avail. :-(

not uncommon for stores to break street date....

depends on store for one....

usely happens when a store puts the item/products on shelf before the release date then all it takes is oh my sons birthday is on the 12 and he wants pokemon really bad (sob story about spending time with kid what not)
they sell it early then the person gives it to their kid early....

the person has no clue on street date (employee/usely on shelf)

employee sells out back door of store

falls off truck/ truck driver steals shipment (hardly happens now due to everything that goes online can be tracked)
owns all game systems... equal feelings about all of them...
its the games i tend to take favor to o.O

I tried grabbing the pre release boxes (not the ones that have the release date).

Almost conned a blondey at JB Hifi In Werribee in giving it up, her co-worker wised up to it and told her not to release it yet...

So close..

Don't know if its store wide, but I called an eb games, jb hifi and target down on the peninsula and none of them had broken street dates. I guess I could try in the city.
And then God created Saturn...and he liked it, so he put a ring on it.

I'll try Big W tomorrow and see how it goes.
Leon survived his encounter with the boulder in RE4. He would be against punching the boulder and would rather take it in for questioning - kilo47

So basically unless the game is on the shelves, you can't buy it.
They just search their data-base and tell you the release is Saturday...
