I contacted an Amazon representative and was told that the sharpshooter was no longer available for release date shipping do to the packaging and handling time needed. Something about a 5 day processing time needed by the publisher/shipper.
I hope you are pulling our collective chains. Hmm I wonder if it will be delayed enough that I can walk into gamestop and buy one release day and still have time to come back and cancel my online order. I MUST have at same time as KZ3 so I can play.
I lose a bigger part of my soul waiting the 2-4 days it takes for the sharpshooter to arrive while my KZ3 sits there....or I play it through with the DS3. I sometimes buy at Gamestop when they have decent preorder bonuses, but I NEVER ever sell used games to them.
I asked my gamestop and seriously, the goobers that work there dont know jack....I should friggin work at gamestop. The guy didnt know what the Sharp Shooter was called...and its on posters all over the place in the store. I went in pretending I didnt know much about it, asking if they had any for sale, because if I did know all about it, I should know that its not supposed to be on sale yet. Although some claimed their local Gamestop had them on sale already. The guy didnt know if they had any and said he could only look up games in the system...so I guess they werent doing preorders. It was weird. So had I found one, I would have bought it and canceled mine on amazon, but now I anxiously await my release day shipping Sharp Shooter
HA!! Get this.....Went into my local Wal-Mart and was browsing games while i was waiting for my wife to finish shopping and i stumbled on what i felt at the time was a gold mine. There in front of me was a shelf full of Sharp Shooters. the shelf had the price tag and everything so i grabbed one and went on my merry way excited as could be to go home and try it with the demo. I get to the register and they REFUSED to sell it to me because it wasn't to be out yet. I felt crushed and irate. I thought if it was on the shelf and was priced they had to sell it, but they wouldn't.
I would guess so. I think there is a certain type of delivery like "express overnight" or something that fed-ex and/or UPS will handle pretty much any day of the week no matter what. You also pay a bunch extra.
I ordered mine on the 17th (when they added the $20 promo credit to KZ3). My KZ3 has shipped but my Sharpshooter has not. Now the product page shows Out of Stock too. Amazon screwed me - why did they let me pre-order with Release Date Delivery if they did not have enough to fill their orders??
Same. Mine says "Shipping Soon", but me suspects it's out of stock. KZ3 is out for delivery, but I'll have to let it sit for a few days before I get the sharp shooter, lame. =/ Wish I could cancel and just pick it up at Gamestop or something.
