The BB employee did say that each of their stores will only get 2-3 copies initially.

My friend just checked with the Gamestop next to her work for me, and they said they'd have it in-store tomorrow. Guess I'll try and get it again tomorrow morning.

No wonder my copy from amazon hasn't shipped.....argh...more time to play Borderlands....

I heard the same thing from F1 fans from planet-f1....

This may interest you guys. Apparently us folks in the US haven't been so lucky. At first I though it was just me. I head out on a sunny September morning, walk into Gamestop:

"Hi, I'm looking for F1 2010, Xbox 360 version. Today's supposed to be the release date." (In my head, this is my emotion: )

Employee: "Huh, Final Fantasy?"

"(Speaking clearly): Formula One, 2010"

*Employee checks registry* "Nope, not in stock right now"

*I walk out of Gamestop*:

There's a LOT of US fans on the official forum that have not been able to get their copies, either. Only the PC Steam users might have a chance to get it on time. It seems the US release date has been pushed back without so much as an announcement. Needless to say, a lot of gutted gamers in the states right now.

But don't cancel it till you have your physical copy from Gamestop/Best Buy.

Just got to play the game more... holy shit is the game intense!! Controls and options on the car are pretty detailed. First corner usually has some bumping going on mostly on my part But oh man I was in 2nd place while Webber was in 1st... Lots of late braking and taking the inside got me in front of him on the last lap!! I couldnt look back to see how far he was in fear of going off and wrecking the car lol

The only part I dont really like is the sound, it just sounds like a bunch of bee's... I dont think I heard any tire squeals etc. 25 points now.. off to the next race!

got it today from steam for the pc...played 4 very enjoyable hours and got thru 2 events. Very immersive game, you play through career mode entirely in first person, even during the pre/post race stuff (can switch cameras during the race, but the helmet view is working best for me sofar). I actually find myself participating in all of the practice/qualifying stuff and working to dial-in my settings (when I would usually skip thru straight to the actual race in other games).

AI seems pretty tough on the PC too: playing on easy, I'm getting my butt kicked...I finished 15th in my first race and was heading for a 5th place finish in my second race until Stupidmacher made me spin out on my last lap LOL. I'm loving the challenge tho, makes it feel very rewarding when you climb up the standings...there is definitely no "start the race in last, then fight your way to the top before the end of the first lap" stuff here, hehe.

Looking forward to more racing the rest of the week, feel free to ask any questions...
