Title: SFxt early releases and where
Post by: DQsama on March 01, 2012, 03:21:11 PM
like previous capcom games there is a huge interest in getting the game early.

if anyone knows where  within aus pleaase tell - all it takes is for 1 store to sell it early then we all can get it

likewise i will also go out and have a look after uni etc

please keep posted

Yup, once a store breaks street date they can all do it. We just need to find the one willing to crack. Marvel experience teaches me that Big W is the one with the most potential, those guys don't give a shit.

from my experience the big w's in nsw normally get the games later than most game focused stores like eb or jb

I've been down to my local EB and asked a few times. Each time they've told me they can sell it as soon as they get it in stock. I'll visit again soon enough to find out if it's still that way.

I remember getting my Vanilla Street Fighter 4 SE a few days early from EB. It was probably like 1 or 2 days early but I remember being really surprised when I got the call to go pick it up. Alas I did not order SfXT from Eb and decided to go with Amazon.

JB Hifi are easy to crack, GAME and EB on the other hand can be total arseholes.

I think they mean 'Released Today' for Thursday's special ;)

Most retailers don't get new releases until Wed or Tues at the earliest for Thursday releases, so I wouldn't get my hopes up for many breaks today.

One of the EBgames near me was honest and told me they have their stock already (and another closer to the city has theirs on display in pre-order section), they just aren't selling until head office says they can. Highly doubt only one EBgames store near me got stock and the other one didn't. :\

Hell, the honest store even has consoles set up for play (wish they had sticks at least).

This is 10 minutes down the road from me. Just had a chat to them. They haven't received stock yet. They'll sell it as soon as they get it, but they don't know when. 7/03 is just an estimate.

Title: Re: SFxt early releases and where
Post by: DQsama on March 06, 2012, 02:52:03 PM

Title: Re: SFxt early releases and where
Post by: Deathwish on March 06, 2012, 06:19:33 PM
Well I checked JB near my house this arvo and they got the stock but ain't selling until someone else breaks embargo. If it's any consolation, I don't get paid until tomorrow so works fine by me :P

$100??? You're crazy.

I'm just gonna pop down to Big W tomorrow and pay my $69. Just hoping it doesn't sell out before I get there. Have to be unlucky for that to happen though.

Meh. He's just a dipshit working a crappy job. No point in taking everything personally. You get to go home and be yourself. He's still stuck working at target. He loses.

If you make it a big deal, stand there yelling at him for 10mins, getting managers involved etc, you both lose as you're not going to gain anything from it. You'll just lose time in your life that you could've been doing something more interesting and fun with.
