I can confirm this!!! Just talked to my local Gamestop and they said I could come pick up the game tomorrow... stinks there is no demo for the PS3 though. But I am crossing my fingers that it is a good game!

Just got the call, thank god!
 
# 3 LingeringRegime @ 05/28/10 03:37 PM
**** yeah! Just made the call!

YES just called gamestop and I'm picking it up tomorrow morning! WOO! Memorial Day weekend just got better.

I'm just going to do what I did with The Show, then. I'll buy the game from Gamestop and play it, then buy the game from Best Buy and return that unopened one to Gamestop. It's bulletproof.

EDIT: Actually, I'm traveling this weekend so it might not even be worth it.

This is a good idea, I might have to do this myself. I preordered on Amazon and I'm guessing it's already in the mail. I think I'll go buy from Gamestop and then return the Amazon copy to them once I get it.

Check your order on Amazon. I was able to cancel mine.

Yes indeed it is available tomorrow! Just talked to our local Gamestop.

I just may have to get it (already pre-ordered). It's a new football game damnit!
 
# 11 NoDakHusker @ 05/28/10 03:49 PM
If your Amazon order hasn't shipped(they send you a separate email saying that it shipped btw) then you can still cancel it.

Yes, I do think it has something to do with it.

Noice! Props to 505 who made the call! I just wish they would've put it out as immediate release. Perhaps I can get a K-Mart employee to sell it today if I can convince them the street date has been broken? Anyone know of official announcements in writing anywhere?

That's the only thing that came to mind for me as well, but I am positive that I can look past this game's negatives.

It's a smart idea to release it before Memorial Day IMO. May sneak a few extra sales. People always like to be surprised with positives. The demo's depth was another nice positive surprise.

What is funny is I asked him how many copys do you have, should I reserve it? He laughed and said, actually we dont have a single reservation for this game, and we only got 1 copy of each(ps3 and xbox360). He said, give me your name and I'll hold it for you.

On one hand, Im pretty happy. On the other hand, its pretty sad this game has no reservations. This game is so promising, and easily has potential to be the future of football gaming.
Yeah, I only saw a few commercials on draft night and that is it. I hope that another wave of commercial come out. They definitely need to. Because it is a niche game right now.

Yea, this was probably a gift for the demoralized PS3 owners, and because of the holiday weekend.
 
# 18 DirtyJerz32 @ 05/28/10 04:04 PM
Just called 4 GS in a 5 mile radius and ALL confirmed the 29th!
 
# 19 DirtyJerz32 @ 05/28/10 04:05 PM

I wonder if they would sell it to me a day early since I am leaving town tomorrow for a week.
