How come the estimated delivery on this is June 18? I obviously want it when the game is released. Does anyone know if the estimate is wrong or why it is that way?

I agree that this is not a desirable situation. Amazon is not even giving the option to pay extra for a Saturday delivery, which is an option I always have on items fulfilled by Amazon since I am a Prime subscriber. I only have the option of "1-day shipping" which still places the delivery date on Monday. So, I'll be playing the game all weekend and still not have the guide until after 7pm on Monday (the average delivery time at my home for )UPS/FedEx).

Why shouldn't I just pick up this guide at a physical store on Friday instead? Do these "L.E." guides really sell out that quickly?

I'm almost tempted to keep my pre-order, attempt to purchase the guide on Friday (release day), and if I am successful in purchasing the guide on the weekend, just refusing delivery when the guide shows up on Tuesday. (One benefit to my deliveries always arriving so late in the day, I am always home to meet my delivery person.)

Emailed amazon this morning to ask why the guide, which I preordered back in April, would be arriving late. If they don't have a valid answer or make up for the delay somehow, I'm just going to cancel my order and buy it at a best buy or something.

Wish they understood that the guide is basically useless if it doesn't come the same day as the game.

I see the Amazon Strategy Guide Release Date Mysteries has reared its head again. I woke up to find The product's status has "improved" to 1 to 2 months. If I recall correctly, seeing that the signature guide is finally in, I am thinking the limited edition guides should be on their way within 24 to 48 hours.

So help me Amazon, WHY must this old saga go on with Big release strategy guides? The system used should have been completely revamped or some people fired by now.

Grrr... I preordered in early May. Hope that's early enough to get this in a few days. I typically like getting all collectibles in a game on the first playthrough, which is why I wanted the guide so early, but based on trophies I know I'll have to play this a few times. So I might as well dig in as soon as I have the time.

So did anyone get this from Amazon yet? Did it even ship yet?

I just got a report saying that it won't be delivered until at least July 25th... but no reason given. Not real happy about this.

I also just got an update saying June 24th for my delivery estimate, it's kind of annoying since originally it said the 18th so I should have gotten it today, and ten days after I got the game doesn't provide a lot of help since by then I probably will have looked online for the info regarding the in game collectibles, I just better not get a copy someone else used and sold to amazon it better be brand new.
