Haha.

The release will get pushed back 3 times.

The 2nd time will appear to be the real release date, but it wont. It will be a mistake, and noone at EB will know whats up.

You'll recieve your copy the day after I get mine from the EB store.

Never pre-order anything and never vote for the same guy twice. These are the rules.

Those of us who have been dealing with this preorder thing already know that Baldie is on a diet today . . . he won't be eating any crow over this. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif You will be lucky if you get it the same week as everyone that goes to the store to buy it.

I pre-ordered AEP from EB games in Canada and got it the morning of the pre-order...it was on the shelves the next day

I will pre-order PF as well

Why pre-order? I never had trouble in buying a game thru the net shortly after release. Maybe it's useful for mass games such as Doom3, that everybody runs to buy, but for a sim -unfortunately- you're always on time.

I preordered from UBI for AEP and got it 3 (or maybe 4 I dont remember) days after it was released. I remember they didn't actually ship the thing until the day after it was released. Got to love preorders. This time I'm stopping at the Gamestop on my way home from work.

I got my AEP on the day it was rteleased by going to the store. Pre ordering is good... just pre order at the store. My last pre-order by mail experience was extremely frustrating.. not only was the product a bust... (CFS3) but was in stores for almost a week before I got mine. I pre ordered FB and the AEP at my local EBGames and they called me the day it was released and I got it that morning. It had actually came in the night before but they couldnt sell it to me till the official release date.

Generation PO. Its always the Newbies that pre~order. When they learn to pre~order never again, they become bitter, encrusted old timer Noobs.

..good point about pre~ordering inside the store you will buy it from. Still, I never forget seeing empty boxes of DOOM~3 on sale. That looked so...dumb.

I agree with you that most of the time it is dumb to preorder a box, but id software went the extra mile and had limited edition figurines for Doom 3 inside those pre-order boxes. Gotta love a company that tries to please its customers.

After the AEP debacle with pre-ordering, it seems to me that anybody can be excused for acting gun-shy at the thought of pre-ordering PF. I know I won't pre-order, ever

I pre-ordered FB from UBI. As the website was down I'd had to telephone the order through but I wasn't at all confident that the lady had taken my order correctly so I called a couple of days later and cancelled.

Anyway I bought FB on the day it was released from HMV.

So about a month later I receive a parcel and guess what? Yes it was FB arriving from UBI!!! ONE MONTH LATE AFTER I'D CANCELLED! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I'll never pre-order anything again.

He is just excited about being this much closer to having PF in his hands is all.
With all of the negative vibes he is doomed for sure, he will get it 1 1/2 week after everyone buys there's at the local store. People will be posting screen shots and vids and having a blast.
This will of course drive him crazy and make him pull his hair out and knash his teeth and mumble odd things.
Than he will be sent away in a white coat for proper treatment and 6 months later he will get to finally enjoy PF.
We dont want that for him do we? Lets think positive thoughts, repeat after me Por favor...

but some days the sun even shines on a dogs a$$ so you may get it on time.........

Hmmm, I'll get mine two months after the rest of you. None of the stores around here are good at having the new flight sims. Takes forever for them to stock up.

Had to get an online buddy to buy me a copy of the ACE pack and send it to me from 3000 miles away. Might have to do that again.

I called EB like 3 times to find out the release date of AEP and make sure it was still on schedule. They had to look it up each time. I called from work the morning of, still not in, called in the afternoon and it was in. I had them put it aside. Like I had to worry, I must be the only flight sim freak in my little town. I ran over after work and picked up my copy. I told the guy at the counter what a great sim it was and he looked at me like I was crazy. You know EB...X-Box, GTA, snot nosed kids, etc. I'm like in my mid 30's and gainfully employed. They have no idea what IL2 is or that they even have it. They pointed me to CFS 3 when I was first looking for a flight sim. It's like the video store, the crappier the movie, the more of the wall it covers.

I looked at the manual in my car.

I will be doing the same when PF is released. Best damned cheap thrill ever! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I didn't get my preordered AEP until like 4 days after the release. It's still sealed in the box it arrived in.....bought it locally the day it was released.

Lesson learned. If you preorder....do so locally where you can pick it up on release day. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

BTW, Baldie...did you ever post pics of your completed cockpit?
