    Default Eb street date Bullshit

    I just got back from my local Eb and they told me the street date for PDZ was th 23rd and PGR3 was the 24th. This sounds like total bullshit to me since MS is holding it's game with fame event tomorrow and the only games being played are PDZ and PGR3.

    I'm gonna argue my ass off with the manager to give me my copies and maybe i'll have some luck. I got Condemnded today and that was only after arguing their street date of the 24th was totally insane.

    Anyways, anyone else having this simliar misfortune? And does anyone know the offical release dates so i can have some proof when i plead my case?

    Hah, thats horrid. As for proof, I'm sitting on a copy of PDZ right now and PGR has been at my buddies house for a week, but that certainly isn't going to help you much :/

    I don't know what to say other than to ask them to call a competing game store that isn't retarded.

    Don't worry i intend to.

    Thankfully i know the EB games manager and he knows that i'm a no-nonsense sort of person so hopefully everything will go well. Like i said i got him to give me Condemnded even though the street in the book was the 24th.

    Why not just shop at a different store?
    Selling collection, Atari through XBox. Send a PM with whatever games you're looking for.

    First two are the games you want, third is King Kong, the only launch title with an actual street date.

    QoF and I were at an EB Games just a couple of hours ago (trouble with a couple of DC games we got) and they had all the launch titles out on the shelves and priced up. PDZ and PGR3 included.

    PDZ is not street dated.

    I was just playing it on my 360.

    It's just your EBs apparently.

    We've been selling them since we got them.

    King Kong on and the actual hardware were the only street dates.

    Once again, hate the particular dunce at the counter, not the whole company.
