I've noticed that problem as well with EB and Gamestop. They rarely have the games on Street Date. The Street Date is the time when stores can put it on their shelves and sell it, so that all stores have equal oppurtunities to sell the product. But some stores don't seem to get orders until well after street day.

Unless it's a huge release title like, Half-Life or Madden... odd. :confused:

well be happy you did preorder from Amazon (US), i emailed regarding when I would receive it and they said they have an estimated ship date of 4/25, ouch.... I am getting it earlier at a game shop and then cancelling with Amazon. I was under the impression that I would get the game at least the next day when i preordered....what a joke preordering is....

Tell me about it:rolleyes: I pre-ordered my copy from amazon.co.uk in early March and was notified by email that it had shipped early in the morning on the 7th(the release date for Europe). The estimated delievery date was April 7th-11th 2006...yeah right. Currently late in the evening on the 11th and I haven't received a thing:( Yeah sure it can arrive tomorrow or the day after, but I'm a bit fed up with sitting here bored to death while everyone's out there having fun playing:(

i'll never pre order again... this was my first and last time. i just checked the Amazon web page and the tomb raider game says 'ships in 1 to 2 weeks', what the heck is that all about... as soon as i get the game from my local shop, i am cancelling....

I'm starting to get really worried about all this talk of Amazon being ..... well, you know. I pre-ordered it in March w/ one day ship so I could get it the 12th. When I log in to my account, it still says estimated delivery will be the 12th, however, as of 11pm the 11th, it still hadn't shipped! That's the whole point in pre-ordering... we pre-order, we get first dibs. They should know how many copies they need just from the number of pre-orders. I'll never pre-order again.. this is ridiculous! And to think, a friend ordered it TODAY from walmart and is expecting it TOMORROW!!! What up with that! If I don't have my game tomorrow, I'm canceling my order and will just drive around till I find it!:mad:
