My Lucasarts pre-order has just been shipped...I guess there's a better reason to pre-order from Lucasarts than just the plate thingy! :)

It'll probably get here on monday... (that's how long my other Lucasarts purchases have taken with the shipping that I selected) :)

Rawr, lucky. Sometimes the stores get it earlier but they don't put it on the shelves until release date.... it's so annoying :mad:

stores arent able to put them out before release date becuase they could recieve a huge fine, if the company got wind of it the store could lose their right to sell any other games from that company.

i used to work at best buy, and if that did happen it would cost about $5,000 for every copy that was out.

Did you get an e-mail comformation or something? I can't check the status of my order on the Lucas Arts Store page. I pre-ordered mine with next day shipping (when I preordered Starfighter w/ free shipping, it didn't come on time.).

Yeah. I haven't received any sort of confirmation on my pre-order from LEC. Did you get any sort of confirmation e-mail?

are u sure it has shipped? i checked my preorder status @ lucas arts and it said it has shipped. but when i try to track it with ups it just says "cannot track so and so tracking number" i did, however, get a confirmation email from lucas arts saying they got my order request.

Yeah. I got the e-mail from them confirming that they got my order request. I even have the order number, but for some reason I haven't received any e-mail saying it shipped. Still haven't been able to log into the order status section of their site for some reason.

Iv'e never seen Best Buy get any new release games before Electronics Boutique, so it should be awfully rare for a Best Buy to get fined for breaking street dates, I think Best Buy makes up their own street dates, usually 2-4 days after EB

Called Lucas Arts today. They said my order was shipped on the 12th via UPS Next Day Air. They said I should receive it today(Monday), but I did not. UPS has no record of it according to the tracking number Lucas Arts gave me- blah!!!

I just called LA and they said that most orders were shipped today the 15th. Mine was shipped on the 12th and they said that if I didnt have it by tomorrow I should call them back. So far it doesnt look like anyone got it today.

Actually, for stores like GameStop and Electronics Boutique, they arrange for a special contract that allows them to distribute the game to RESERVED/Pre-Ordered copies a day before the retail release. But for all other individuals who didn't place a pre-order or reserve it, they have to wait until at LEAST the 17th to get their copy.
