Same thing happened to me. I'm 2 for 3 on NOT getting my release date shipped game on the release date. I'm really close to just pre-ordering at Gamestop or Best Buy from now on.

So bummed! I too am just going to buy from local GS. Had the day off...lame.

I just ordered this game yesterday afternoon and it will be here today in about an hour. I also have an Amazon Prime membership if that matters.

I think it depends where you're located. Appears a UPS airplane in Phoenix was having problems...for almost 8 hours!! After 2 it's time to get a new plane!! :P

Go to walmart or anywhere that has an easy return policy, buy a copy, save the receipt. And when you get your amazon copy in the mail return it to walmart unopened with the receipt.

Oooh. That's good!

Returning the Amazon game to Walmart will cost you the Broderick Suit. The download code is sealed inside the game box with the manual. Of course, Walmart has an exclusive case, so you'd basically be trading one for the other.

Back on topic, my Amazon copy arrived this morning. Guess I got lucky.

I'm in the same boat. Pre-ordered at the beginning of the month ...and my order currently says it won't be delivered until the 20th. Amazon's great, but it's not the place for new video games.

I thought new copies had a Rockstar pass.

May 16, 2011 08:32:44 PM US Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit

No mechanical issues, unless 'external' means just that.

Never. EVER going to pre-order through stupid ass amazon again.

Don't get me wrong, Amazon is cool in millions of ways, but they throw in a $15 credit I have to use by the end of this month?!?!

$15? Cool. But I have to use it in 2 weeks or lose it?

I'll stick to my regular retailers from now on.

Thanks for nothing Amazon.

Gus Hound says:
The $15 credit expires in a year and two weeks (May 2012). Also, it seems like the shipping issue is UPS's fault rather than Amazon.

Amazon usually compensates people for issues like this, and it isn't even their fault.

Im in the same boat. Im in San Diego, my order went from Arizona to New Mexico? WTF

I too am a bit aggravated at this because I pre-ordered the game on, no kidding-July 10, 2010. Since the game was slated to be released in November I thought a few months headway would be enough. Guess not... 10 months on pre-order and my expected delivery is May 20. Sad sad day!

Just so you know - the code forthe suit is in the case

1st and last time I pre-order from Amazon ... delay here too.
Uggh ... well, I think i'll give Witcher 2 or Terraria a go while I wait ... will probably stick with pc gaming from now on.

Yeah... I pre-ordered in Dec. Not happy one bit. This is the one game I've been looking forward to and super excited about! I even had the day off for it, and I get about a day off a week - so I'm rather upset. This isn't the first time this has happened either. I'm rather confused as to why it went to NM from AZ as well...

I have prime and love it but had been buying my games at GS for the first time I bought a game here hoping that I would not have to deal with the stink that is GS but now I learn that I wont get my game until tomorrow. Boo amazon! I will still use prime but not for things I want fast. Boo!

At least you guys know yours is in New Mexico. Mine left Phoenix at 8:15am and I haven't gotten an update since.

depends on where you live .. mine always arrive release day. Amazon ships them on time, then it's up to UPS to deliver. And, well you know how that goes.

sorry, but look at it this way, what's the hurry? It's a very slow paced game, kind of boring. Already thinking about dumping it.
