Everytime I'm in a store with PC games, I've been taking a look for one.  Should they not be being offered in stores by now?  My Future Shop and EB's don't seem to have any. :cry:

Just ask the staff at EB to pre-order it. They don't always get the pre-order boxes first.
Basically, as soon as an SKU for an item is available, you can usually pre-order it.

I wish I had a BestBuy close by but its on the mainland.  I didn't see anything in my Futureshop yet and don't think I even want to buy from EB anymore.  EB seems to have delays.  When i bought FEAR I went to EB first and they said they wouldn't have it for two more days(this was on release day).  I then walked over to Futureshop and there it was.

I guess I'll just ask-maybe they just don't have the boxes out...

The EBs (and Gamestops) in my area have turned into the old Funcolands. Nothing but a depot for used console games. I don't even go into these stores anymore. What a shame.

I pre-ordered the game on Amazon because I have Amazon Prime. I hope they reliably ship new releases on release date, because this is the first time I have used them for a game I want first day.

Does Best Buy have the CE boxes out for pre-order?

Good luck.  Amazon is not the place to pre-order if you want the game the first day.

I still go with GameStop for stuff I want to pre-order, though not for much else.

in addition to have the pre-order available, it looks like BB is also offering 10,000 reward zone points if you put your money down early.  add your $60 purchase price, and you've quickly earned $5 off the game.  not a bad deal...
