    Just FYI to the Oleg Team. There were only two copies from what I can gather delivered to the Houston area after release and there is a huge demand. I guess no PC company is delivering large quantities of games anymore to save on costs. The salesman at the place I went to had people calling him and asking him if he would accept an additional $20 - $30 bucks(on the side) to hold the game since they didn't pre-order it. I hate to see this type of thing since in my book you guys need to capitalize on the demand. I want to see the Oleg crew become a success as I'm sure many others do. Houston is the third - fourth largest city in the United States BTW...Hopefully more is on the way soon...

    Its not really Oleg's problem...its the publisher, UBI that needs to deal with this.

    So far...my efforts here in Canada have been totally thwarted. Neither Bust Buy, nor Futureshop...the two largest electronic stores, have ever heard of it...its not even in their systems!

    I hear EB in Toronto had a pair of copies delivered. They were sold quickly apparently...its a self perpetuating prophecy...sims don't sell well because they don't produce enough. Ironic.

    The stores aren't buying them. You can find a whole row of M$CFS that will mostly be
    there for a long time at inflated prices that take forever to drop (still won't buy
    em even then but somebody will, maybe) below $50 but something people keep calling for?
    Just another case of management types needing to get their heads up for air.

    I've been wanting to buy from a store to help support the mass preorders they do, but
    they don't. Direct from UBI still works?

    Our Best Buy was sold out on the same day it was on the shelves. I didn't make it in time. (15 can't drive)

    The moron at game stop wasn't to concerned and pronounced it as a "B" title. He had console n00b written all over him.

    Swine,
    The Best Buy at Hwy 6 and FM 529 had 8 copies on Friday the 29th. They were still in the shipping box at 3:45pm and I had to wait for over 30 minutes while the guy dug them out. They probably still have some left.
    The Best Buy at Hwy 6 and Westheimer had 12 copies in shipment on Thursday the 28th.

    The EB Games across Hwy 6 from the Best Buy had a large shipment come in Thursday but it had been broken into. One of the missing titles was all 10 copies of PF.
