Went by GameStop yesturday.

GS: "We won't get it until Thursday."
awkward pause...

me: "But my receipt says Street Date: 09/21"

GS: "Its changed."

Went to another GS store, they said they would have it on weds. If they don't today I may check out Walmart/BestBuy. I see no reason to pre-order a game they aren't going to delivery to me on time. Just cause it isn't a AAA Halo Reach title doesn't mean its 'ok' to be sloppy on release.

Mostly because its $1295. There are far cheaper options.

Best Buy has them in limited quantities!

Decided to give it another shot this morning. Called 2 Gamestops, one said Friday, the other said Thursday/Friday. Went to Best Buy and they had 2 copies... one was sold already, one was on hold.

Had him check the inventory for other stores in the area. Next closest BB was sold out of both their copies; but a store about 30 min away showed 4 in stock. So he called them while I stood there and had them put it on hold for me!
Drove straight there, and now it's sitting here next to me... haven't even opened it yet

So call your nearest BB and have them hold a copy for you!

if anyone is in the tri-state area or new england area, i'd recommend ordering from walmart.com.....the game ships out of albany, ny, so you'll get it in a day.

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...
haha...i'm loving it!

are you doing career? which team did you pick?
