I didn't receive a call from gamestop yet so I assume most Gamestops will get them tomarrow.

wait 'till GTA4 comes out, and you'll see the importance of reserving your copy!

Amazing... this game with such supposed longevity and playability...why does it matter to wait one more day to get it?? Yeh thats my reasoning to relax, I will be playing this game tomorrow night.

My copy is on pre-order at a game stop, so I'm expecting to be able to pick it up after work. if they don't have it, I'll be a little pissed.

At lunch today I checked Circuit City, Target, Gamestop, and Walmart and nobody had it. The guys at CC and Gamestop said it won't come out until tomorrow (30th) Walmart and Target were clueless and never even heard of the game but checked and said it wasn't at the store at all.

called two different gamestops and they said it ships today and gets in tomorrow. Doesn't every other retailer get it tomorrow as well? If so what's the use of preordering....

^^Because when you're in gamestop, the genius behind the counter will tell you how they're going to sell out and you probably won't be able to find it for months...

I'd be surprised if anyone has it today, due to the holiday weekend.

Circuit City guarantees it by 2 pm or you get a 20$ GC.

EDIT: On the 30th.

to bad you reserved your game at gamestop. I reserved nothing and get forza 2 with a free game from circuit city. And if they sell out I get a 20$ gift card which is also fine with me.Game stop SUCKS. They are thieves all of those places there for little kids who want games and their parents will buy them not knowing the real cost of the game.

Somebody in marketing fell asleep. Should have stated public release for the 30th in the first place. And besides that, there is no reason for stores not to have it. In transit mail shipments dont typically stop on holidays, they just aren't delivered.

I'd buy from frys everytime but I either pay shipping and still get teh game late or drive 40 miles and spend the same amount on gas as I would shipping. Circuit city isn't close enough to be worth the drive and I just outright refuse to give best buy my money.

I'll be hitting up CC tomorrow with the 2 free gift cards I got from the Pirates Blu-ray movies.

Combine that and the free 20$ game with purchase of Forza 2 and I'll be out the door with 2 games for 30$.

Not bad....

59 Blu-rays and counting...

Anyone going to try to get it at a 24hr wal-mart?

I would but its hopeless where I work, not to be prejudice but everyone that works at the 24 hr one here barley speaks english.

Its seriously like walking into a 3d world country, your lucky not to get robbed in the parking lot also.


I wantt this gameeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I have my copy(ASIA vers). Really great game! Initially the graphics did not wow me, but I appreciated it more as I played. The tracks are highly detailed, and running through nurburgring with D class cars is a joy
I will eventually buy that wireless wheel, but I wish that ultra nice logitech g25 was supported.

Mine will be available at EB around 1pm, so i will probably get there after work.

One thing though, last week i got the forza Faceplate and it came with a token code to download something but its not working yet. Im guessing they will have a free car or theme for the token hopefully soon.
