I'm looking to pick up RE5, as it's only $53.99 to preorder.  Any idea on how long they take to ship usually?

I never have, although ordering in-stock from Amazon.ca has always been within 3 days.

I've ordered a few times from them, since once in a while they have video game sales that offer some great discounts. I've also purchased many books and a decent number of DVD's from them. All shipping you pay for goes through Express Post and you'll literally have the game within days; I'm in Vancouver and friends and I have received items in as little as 2 days. Anything you buy over $39.99 has an option to be shipped free, but the delivery is slower. Still I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 business days for any item that was listed with a status of 'In Stock'.

If they ever start offering the game trading service that amazon.com does, I'll probably start using them more often than local EB stores.

Ya.. I've done quite a bit of shopping for books, cd's etc from them.  Always been happy.  My only question is that they seem to take a few days to actually ship the item.  Once it leaves, it gets here quickly.

I'm thinking that $53.99 for RE5 with free shipping, is too good to pass up.

Me and a friend pre-ordered Fallout 3 from Amazon.ca, it took about 3 weeks after it was released to show up. (I'm in Calgary)

That's what I was afraid of.  Thanks.

Wow, that's a terrible delivery time! The only time it took me that long to receive something was when I accidentally ordered a DVD that had a 2-3 weeks status listing. I guess in your case they got short changed on copies of FA3. I've never placed a pre-order with them so that's good to know.

Yup, sounds like amazon or the vendor was out of stock and they had to wait for the shipment to come in so they could ship out to individual customers.. This happens on new or hot products that sell out fast.
