It looks like 2k will be in stores 1 day before "that other hockey game" again this year:

2k is shipping on the 8th so should be in stores by the 9th.

Companies use "ship" dates and "release" dates in different ways sometimes. It would be nice if they would just say when they expect it to hit stores.

EB is pretty reliable with their ship dates.

I know I had 2k8 on a Tuesday last year and had to wait a day for 08. Not sure why it happens that way but it wouldn't surprise me again this year.

Latest I've seen is K9 on the 9th. 09 on the 10th (4pm).

What the hell does "Gone Gold" mean or do for us? These guys cutting albums now or something?

Yeah sure sounds like it. Don't know why that made me happy hearing about them going gold now that I think of it.
