same problem in maryland too....but i preordered from Amazon hoping to get it on the day and was really pissed when i emailed them to ask why the shipping date was a few weeks later and they said it was because of all the orders....geeesh, i am getting the game at a local shop and cancelling with Amazon....so much for preordering.... this is very frustating, you wait and wait for the game and then finally its released on 4/11 then you find out that you have to wait another day....

That's what typically happens. Even though the game site says a specific date for a game's release, that really means the publishers of the game will ship it out to retailers on that date and the stores will have them on display the following day. Sometimes I do think though that they try to have it in stores on that specific date, but from my personal experiences of purchasing games that I really want in stores, it's rare when it comes to buying them on the release date. So I'd end up buying them the following day or sometimes two days after the release date.

There were occasions when I'd actually call up the store like either EBGames or GameStop and asked if the game's in stock since that's what the site showed. I'd be told immediately that the date listed in the site is when the game will be shipped to their store and that they'd have it the following day.

not in any stores today, although I did find one Walmart that had the guide!!! Go figure. Why put the guide out before the game? So I think it'll definitely be in WalMart tomorrow....

It also really depends on the shipment quantity of the game ordered by the stores too. So that's why you'd see some stores have it one to two days after said release date.
