This delay stuff is getting old. I can't wait til they can get their cards in order and release games as promised. Not the retailers fault here, but hey, this is ridiculous.

Every Tuesday, Every Friday.
Instead of this Dirt Tuesday, HS on Wednesday, anything on Thursday, Friday?

This Wednesday Dirt, HS and next Wednesday yadda, yadda, yadda, you get the picture.

Truthfully, games hit major retailers on Wednesdays unless otherwise stated. Some major game releases (i.e. Halo 3, Rock Band) may elect to have a "special day" just for the game, but most cases, Wednesday is release day. Nobody seems to be following that rule lately though. :(

MACHone4965d ago this a 'mishap.' I work at a Game Crazy and I could have told you a week ago that we wouldn't have the game until the 13th. That's the way it goes for any game that isn't 'street dated.' The same thing happened with Metroid. The release date everywhere listed it as the 27th, but Nintendo's site said "In stores August 28th." That's because games almost always ship the day they're "released" and arrive the following day, with some special exceptions. This is not a "delay." The game will be everywhere tomorrow. Trust me, I'm as eager as the rest of you!

Everyone knows this, unless there is some official launch.
If gamestop says shipping on the 12th is on the shelves the 13th.

heh heh, not really I just found out the other day when trying to pick up warhawk :D

I got smart YEARS ago and realized to add one day to the release date before I knew I could pick it up. Maybe it's an east coast thing though.
