What are the odds of it being released early?  Would Bethesda surprise us like that?  What are your thoughts?  Maybe we can bribe some people.....

I normally wouldn't do this, but I'd pay extra to buy Oblivion a week early.  It's being released right in time for my 24-hour, 7-day oncall period.  frown

I'd say the odds are pretty good that people will have it before the 20th. Just look at Ghost Recon. The "official " date for Europe is this Friday, but it was out last week over there in many stores.

I'm guessing there will be pirated copies out before the release date.

Yeah, I'm guessing there is a pretty high probability of that as well.

Oh boy I hope so!  We're talking about forum shitstorms of apocalyptic scale -- gamers are so polarized about this game, you'd think we were talking about the president.

And if anyone really thinks it -won't- be pirated before 3/20, they're deluding themselves, or have no idea what actually goes on on the internet.

I asked Bethesda on this and was told flatly that there will be nothing shipping before the 20th.  Piracy is a while different animal...

Aren't people who intentionally post in threads about topics they don't care about just to get reaction generally known as "Trolls"?

Not nessecarily, trolling requires a deliberatly offensive post designed to piss off the general population of the board being posted on.

That would be lying.  You are close though.  I think you'd have to say "The Phantom is the best console (n)ever and you are a douchebag if you say differently!*"

Actually, yes.  IF you posted it on, say, a forum dedicated to DS or PSP fans.  Or any forum that had a history of hating the ngage.

Doop's line is probably the better troll.  In the right spot he could get just as many responses without being blatenly hostile and thus a less chance of anyone catching on.

EDIT AGAIN: I can't spell.

Yes, and LE has been doing it for years. He was banned from GG and OO. As I told him in another thread, I feel sorry for him, cause he must be a very bitter man the way he trashes nearly everything.

hmm, if they don't ship until the 20th, that means that a lot of people won't get it until the 22nd at the earliest then. I don't think every store gets drop shipments, so it would be:
20th ship overnight to EB warehouse (for example).
Receive on 21st, hope the workers aren't having a bad day
Ship from warehouse overnight arrive on the 22nd.

Does that sound right?

This game should be in stores on the 21st. It should ship to the EB warehouse before the 20th, it just can't ship from the warehouse until the 20th. Or else, yeah I don't see how in the world they would have it on shelves for the 21st.....but they may drop ship, cause they do that with most big games.

KD's right.  It just depends on whether it's deemed a big enough title to justify the extra expense needed to have it in stores that day.

From what I have been hearing with the amount of preorders already for this game....I am hoping it will qualify. smile

Strangely enough, my local store gave me a date of March 17th as when it'd be in.  I suspect this is the ship date, and the actual street date is the official date.

Well, I doubt they could get in trouble for saying a date, only if they actually sold it before they were supposed to.
