The earliest I've heard so far is the 26th but eb.ca redirects to the US site so it should be about the same time. I'll visit one of the local stores and see when they expect it.

I checked with EB in Pacific Centre in Vancouver this morning. They're saying November 13.

I've got an order in with Multimedia Technologies on Granville and Broadway but no date yet. They have contacts with suppliers in Europe and usually beat EB on release dates. And their prices are lower.

Are there any Gamestop stores in Canada? if so check with them their timeframe for delivery here in the states looks to be ahead of EB for some strange reason.

Bestbuy just sent me an email saying they have upped my preorder to the 26th. So it should be available in na tomorrow some time. I'd imagine even if you dont have best buys up there in the north the local chain stores will have it around then also.


Guess you could just order it from a the states if customs or something is making u guys have a later release date.

Hope that helps.

I haven't seen a Babbages around here in a very long time. I think they were all bought by EB.

So maybe by the end of the week we'll see Pacific Fighters around. That'd be great.

So I've searched the Futureshop.ca and the Bestbuy.ca websites and I can't find Pacific Fighters on there ANYWHERE. Anyone else had better luck?

10-25-2004, 04:58 PM
Ouch! Its not on the bestbuy canada site? But listed on the main one. This release is getting weirder and weirder imo.

It's a bit sad imo. Anyways where do you live in canada? Mebbe you could just take a day trip to buffalo or something and pick it up. Why Canada should be getting it any later than the us is bit weird.

Ahh well what can one do?

Save ya some trouble. I spoke to several FutureShop's, EB games and a Best Buy or two. The skinny seems to be that EB keeps saying "tomorrow" (they get their shipments in aound noonish), Best Buy has no clue when it's out and FutureShop won't be carrying it at all! The guy at FS actually told me that "these kind of games don't sell well so we don't stock them". I told him I'd be taking my business to Best Buy from now on. I *think* either Best Buy or EB is your best choice but by all means call around! If you get lucky, let the rest of us Ontario boys know!

EB Guy "Over the phone?"

Me "Ugh, its a PC game, do you have it?"

EB Guy "No, I don't"

Whatever, next time I will ask the drive through girl at McDonalds, she probably knows more. Over the phone? no, I was hoping you could check via registered letter.

**News Flash**

EB Games in Toronto now has PF!

I went to the one up at Yonge and Steeles and they had it in stock! They still have at least one copy left (I got the other one). The EB Games in Centrepoint Mall also has them in (2 games when I talked to the guy at noon today) Check the other stores while you're at it, if two of them have it, maybe more do as well.

I just picked up a copy at an EB Games outlet in Montreal. The odd thing is that I called them last week and they said PF was only scheduled to arrive on November 13. This morning was pure fluke - I was walking by the store (it's in a mall) and decided to check again. The guy told me they'd already sold out of one shipment (this is on October 29 - two weeks ahead of what I had been told). I was about to leave the store when the clerk realized he'd just received two more copies, slit open a shipping carton and plunked one down. It's already installed (FB + AEP + PF mode) and seems to work just fine. A weekend of carrier landing practice awaits.

He picked up ACE for me months ago. Thank God. They didn't have it at FutureShop for ages after it came out. I'm out in the woods, and the FutureShop in the "Big Town" down yonder is the only game in town.

FutureShop still doesn't list it on their website, but is it in the store computer as arriving.

RCAFrankenstein should keep up on the news. When Bestbuy came up here to Canada they bought the Futureshop chain... if I remember correctly. Taking your business there just means your $$$ are just going into the same vault.

Not here in Winnipeg yet. EB guy in the mall I work at told me at noon that ya he had it but he hadn't had a chance to open the shipment yet. It said so on his shipment list. If I could came back in an hour he'd have it out. No prob I just work down the hall. Go back at 3 and well what do you know...it didn't come in. His shipping list was messed up. No how sad was that? Of course the manager wasn't there today, just new guys. Manager knows me from my weekly visits for the last 2 years. He's is the type of guy who would have opened the shipment up when I had asked the first time...he's the first to admit that EB's computer system is messed up when it comes to the non-hyped games.

I was getting some stuff together for a halloween costume today and while at the mall thought I'd pop in to EB games which was packed with punks of course, and after a very brief scan of the PC games section caught the attention of the nerd behind the till and asked him if they had PF.

He started to give the line that it wasn't out but was cut off when the other geek unpacking boxes behind him just presented it over his shoulder to the first geek without even looking around. First geek stutters for a second and rings it through for me.

$49.99+tax.
