Now you know and I know PF is due out in the U.S. next week, but unfortunately the dumbas..err..."gentlemen" at EB still seem to be under the impression that it's coming out in November. Just today I went to my local EB in the hopes that they might have PF early(which of course they didn't) and the clerk got on his trusty computer and "informed" me that PF had been pushed back to November 27. Of course I knew this was wrong, but who was I to tell him otherwise? Anyway, EB is my best bet of getting PF and I would appreciate it if they were made aware of this release date inaccuracy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I am in the same situation. I would appreciate it if Ubi set them straight, if this was possible. The late release date they are giving me is all that is keeping me from paying for it outright RIGHT NOW.

Probably EB itself knows the update...but the guys in my local EB have this book that they look stuff up in. They seem to rarely have it updated http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Same here. Talked to them more than once, and they're still saying November 27th. I don't think I'll be able to stand another month of waiting.

Why would you wait? Buy it some place else.

I have been having a really bad time with EB over another game that I preordered: Sabre Squadron, the expansion for Hidden and Dangerous 2. It was originally supposed to be released Sept.22. Went in 3 times; tomorrow, tomorrow he said. Hurricanes in Florida, blah, blah, blah. Then the release date was October 19, I showed up, no SS. They said their computer indicated October 22, I showed up today. It's still not here. The ****** couchsurfer EB cashier loser actually chuckled. I don't know whether to blame him or the publisher. He looked up PF and yup, still 11/27.

I'm getting tired of EB. For a 3 hour round trip I could pick up PF at a Gamestop in the next state. I might just do that.

I'm in an unusual situation. I go to college in a small town, and EB is the only brick-and-mortar store in town. I don't have a car here, and the bus line doesn't serve out-of-town routes, so I have no choice but to buy it from there. I can buy it online, but I'd rather not unless I have to. I was hoping to be able to buy it from a real store so I could get it sooner, but that doesn't look like that's going to be the case.

Ditto to most of what Lateralus said.

I'll do like Bear suggested and try the 26th. If they don't have it then, I guess I'll try back on the 30th. If they don't have it then, I dunno......
