So much for pre-ordering http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif It's a good job that they had AEP in stock in the local HMV store. Not on display mind, but at least they did have it.

Last time that I order from them, naturally. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I can beat that..

Pre-Ordered AEP from amazon, then decided against it.. thought i'd get it from a shop instead..

Lo and behold, today none of the shops have it in yet.. So what do I do?

Order it AGAIN from amazon.. Have to wait til monday http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

...

Then i realise i sent the thing to my home address (i'm at university) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif so I can't play it for a week til i'm back for easter!! Argg! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Oh btw, I asked for it in HMV today.. they'd said it'd be 10 days.. you may have a wait on your hands!

That sucks. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
If they are going to offer a pre-order facility, they could at least have the stock in on thr release date.

You may want to consider Play.com, generally good prices and (in my experience) a prompt mail order service to the UK.... I got my AEP yesterday morning.

"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

First (and last) time I buy online from HMV. Never had any probs with Amazon, but I'll keep play.com in mind.
Cheers!
