This is torture! Went to a store in Str√¬łmmen north east of Oslo yesterday to check for AEP availability and found to my surprise a store clerc telling me that "Yes of course we have it". He then disappeared into the back of the store only to reappear empty handed saying, "Yes we have 50 copies but wont sell them until friday".

As much as I understand the release policy with the logic part of my brain I find this pure refined torture worthy of Pol Pot!

I was at Comp USA the morn'n they came in. The dude went in back grabed one and rang it up for me. Thats service or maybe he saw me shake'n all crazy when he said he had it and thought it better just to give me it and get me outta his store. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Poor customer service!

The proper answer would have been: "No, I'm sorry we don't have it yet...it's due Friday".

This is an outright lie of course, but saves the poor customer a lot of anxiety and perhaps a few days of life due to hypertension! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, my sympathies...

My copy dropping though the door this morning ( thanks to Play.com and Royal Mail), and its been fun so far.

The Me-163 is a blast.

The P-38 is sweeeet!

i could go on... but I know you will only drool http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Oh, did I mention the Spitfire? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sorry....

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

FornDude, you just didn't handle it right. Go back to the store, but like, drool and have a nervous twitch. Keep moving your arms like you got a hand gun in your pack pocket! Talk about Revelations and the Four Horseman. Trust me, they'll get you a copy! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Of course, I don't know if they've got cable internet access in the padded cell they'll throw you in, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif so it is entirely up to you!!!
