Hi Lucky,

Eb Games in Toronto say they will have it tomorrow. I live in the boonies and my local store says Thursday.

And I have talked to my dog and he says he doesn't like sledding.

EB says Thursday in stores here in Ottawa...was there (and prepaid) yesterday.

Fingers crossed he was correct.

Oh, and my dog only likes sledding if someone is pulling him along.

Lazy, uber-shedding, pile of fur that he is.

I'm in Toronto, so I'll let you guys know if I get a chance to pick it up.

...my dog is on strike with the other NHL'ers, something about a salary cap

I ordered it on OCT 10th, still showing as "Pending" when I check my order status. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I called 3 EB stores in the Vancouver area today. All said it will be in-store Thursday. They've given me a different date every day I've called for the last two weeks so I'm not hoping for much.

Checked with EB in Vancouver this morning, and once again they told me "tomorrow".

Multimedia at Broadway and Granville told me this morning that PF has been shipped and they will have it tomorrow afternoon. I'm more inclined to believe them, but men have lied to me my whole life.

Vernon BC, was supposed to be here at EB today the 28th.

No shipment received. EB shows 29th release now.

I got mine further North in Alaska today.
Problem is that you canuks still use Husky's to pull your sleds, try the hybrids, much faster and more endurance.

Apparently faster delivery is available by doglsed in Alaska than by piglette express here in the Atlanta, GA area. Even though steve v managed to get a copy at EBGames, my pre-ordered one has somehow yet to come into the store. Just goes to show, never preorder anything. It gives them less incentive to actually get you the game.

Any of you big city boys seen hide or hair of PF yet? I have to make a treck to Owen Sound this afternoon and kind of have my hopes up.

No luck in Toronto as of last night - checked at EB and at Futureshop. Guy at EB said probably today (Friday), but he didn't sound at all certain.

If you find it in Owen Sound let me know, I'm going up to Parry Sound this weekend so maybe they're hitting smaller areas frist

EB games in Langley, B.C. said November 13 but I thought maybe if I took them all a nice snack today it might hurry them up a bit ...

When anyone goes to pick it up, please rememeber to leave the clerks with the hyperfighter /hyperlobby site addy to give to anyone else gettting PF....you will be doing them a favor, instead of them going to Ubi site ugh!

I've been having daily discussions with the nice brain-dead people at EB in Vancouver and was assured yesterday by their Oakridge store that I could order it for a delivery today, Friday. So I did.

This afternoon I was told that, remarkably, the game disk is on their delivery sheet, but it's not in any of the delivered boxes! And, and, it might show up tomorrow, but probably not, so it might be in-store on Monday.

This release seems to be cursed.

it's amazing how across this entire huge country (and down south as well it appears), EB somehow manages to snag all the living dead/ zombies to be their store clerks. Do they post this in their job descriptions?

I mean, mention Doom 3 or GT Auto and they're all drool and excitement. Mention anything else, especially PF or FB, and they're back to zombie mode...
"Do you have my pre-order of Pacific Fighers?"
"Pacific Fighters...what's that?"
"uh, it's a WW2 flight sim"
"WW2? Oh, don't you mean Call of Duty?"

Aarrrggh!

No luck out here in the Paris of the prairies (Saskatoon). 1 EB games and 1 compusmart but both are very small and probably last on the delivery route.

went in to EB today with a buddy from out of town who needed to pick it up PF.
I had gotten a copy already so I let him 'have' my reserved copy.

I asked the EB guy how it was selling and he said that their entire order had gone to the pre-orders and had a back up of demand for it.
Apparently selling very well.

Nice to see there are more of us out there than EB might have thought.
