Well if these damn forums would stop crashing on me maybe I could answer your........

Damn forums crash every fricking time I try to post.

I will get my copy before 29th here in KS. I check UPS and it said 2-1/2 to 3 days shipping from Fremont to Auburn, KS.
The wait only makes it better.........

The email i received said that the game will be shipped the day of release and arrive a few days later. I'd prefer to not take the chance just to receive free shipping and a lousy lapel pin

Well, I don't wanna scare anybody or anything, but I'll tell ya a little story. Hopefully LEC is better than these people were.

Long ago (way back in 2000 I think?) there was a game in development called Rune. For some reason, I was in great anticipation of receiving this game, so I pre-ordered. The release data ended up being at the end of October I think. Well, as luck would have it, I found a warez copy for download the day before release (I'd already ordered, so this wasn't really piracy mind you). I played the game. Beat the game. Played some multiplayer. After a few weeks of this, I decided I really didn't like the game. Actually, I kind of sucked. So I moved on, forgetting about my pre-order. Then one day in the middle of winter (I believe it was February), I was surprised to find a package outside my door. And umm... well, I still have an unopened Rune box lying around here somewhere.

I was scared that LEC might SHIP it the same day it shows up in stores, which would be the 29th. According to the first post for this topic, this is how it'll work. So yeah, I cancelled my LEC orderand I'm just gonna go to EBX and grab a copy there. Maybe i'll take a trip there this weekend, since its in the mall, and give them $5 or something so they reserve me a copy

but whats funny is i sent the same e-mail to LEC adn they said the same thing. They won' tell you if they'll send the preorders out when they ship to the stores or if they ship it the day the stores get it.

pre-order from LEC

I've pre-ordered from LucasArts before. My orders have actually come a day earlier than the street date. I know a lot of other people have had that kind of luck as well. This is one of the reasons I pre-ordered with LucasArts. Don't know if this will change anybody's minds or make anybody feel any better, but that's my 2 cents.

LEC pre-order-ers will get it first

I know that LEC pre-order people will get it before everyone else, not including the stores. When the bulk ships to stores, the pre-orders are sent out also. If the bulk arrives before the 29th, the pre-orders will still continue shipping, right into the person's hands. Stores can't put JK2 out before the 29th. Pre-order-ers made the right choice.

Hmmmm... a lot of you guys seem to have faith in LEC. Maybe i won't cancel my order just yet. I think instead i'll wait and if i don't get anything in the mail from Lucasarts then i'll just buy the game at the store and when i do get the game in the mail i'll just return it. The reason i can't wait until saturday is because my college postal service doesn't operate on the weekend. There's no way i could wait until monday.





and i'll still get my lapel pin!

You guys have too much faith in LEC. They have already said in emails that it will be shipped out and arrive two days later after the 29th.

Anything else someone says is false.

I think you may be assuming too much about that email. It stated it would be shipped out on the release date. Outcast has a definite in-store date. As far as I understand the release date is the date the game ships out and the in-store date is the day it will definitely be on shelves. If I'm wrong somebody correct me. I have a feeling they are shipping the game out on the 26th or 27th and then telling stores not to put it on shelves until the 29th. The U.S. mail system isnt perfect so I would think that they ship to retail stores a few days early so that any problems with delivery can be solved and still have the game in stores on time. Plus, that email response was pretty vague. I sent lucasarts an email about my pre-order and asked them specifically when it will be shipped. Hopefully they will give me a more precise answer. BTW, I checked gamestop, they have the release date set for 3/27/02 on the regular version and 3/28/02 for the collector's edition.

Its a good thing that I decided to buy it at a store when it comes out. I had a horrible experience when I pre-ordered Episode I on VHS when it came out. I ordered it because a free copy of the Episode I Insiders Guide came with it. I didn't get my Episode I tape until a whole week after it was in stores. And to pour salt in the wound the Episode I Insiders Guide that they sent was scratched and didn't work. I called them and they wouldn't even swap it out. I think this was from Bestbuy.com .


My dream, to watch Imperial ships explode in my gunsights.

That's it, I'm sending another message to "Sara" from LEC and asking if the product is shipped on the release date or the in-store date. That should lay this debate to rest. I'll report whatever I find.

I don't wanna be rude, but, I'd hardly compare LucasArts to Lucasfilm when it comes to games. Just because things didn't work out with your Episode 1 video has nothing at all to do with LucasArts' shipping for games. They're two different branches. Anyway, I'm keeping the faith in LEC...... I've had nothing but good results with them and I expect good results this time around as well.

Sorry, DVD... my mistake. Either way, don't get sour on LEC just yet. Especially if you haven't had too much experience with them.

Yes, you can't compare the two, however, I am telling you from experience not to trust LEC.

Anyone heard yet?

i'm just wondering if anyone has heard anything yet.. if it really won't be shipped until the 29th..

if it is shipped the 29th that would suck since its a friday and the sunday doesn't count as a shipping day..

i would definately rather cancel my order and just truck it on down to the local EB..

Thumbs up Ebgames....

Ebgames has changed ship date from April 2nd to March 27th

So there is a good possibility for those who ordered from LEC to
get their pre-orders on 29th!!!

I got a reply from the LucasArts company store.....same exact response that was already seen. Apparently it was an automated response, I did however pre-order from EB when it was only 40 bucks, they sent me an update that the ship date is now the 27th, so I'll just cancel my LEC order....didnt need the lapel pin anyway. EB and Gamestop right now have free shipping or discounted over-night prices. As to when Lucasarts will ship...could be between the 26th-29th, anybody's guess is as good as mine.

I just went to EB's website and Gamestop's. As of right now niether one is selling JO for less than $49.99. While Gamestop is offering free 2-day shipping and EB is doing the same (or $5 off overnight shipping), It still appears that people ordering from either one of these places will probably still only get the game on the 29th. Looks like there's not going to be much difference between these places and LEC.

When you get it from LEC will depend on a) where they ship it from and b) where you are in relation to a), and of course WHEN they ship it. I don't have to have things shipped from EBgames overnight, for example, since I am very very close to the FedEx distribution center.

I got a reply

I was concerned with this so i emailed LEC and this is the response i got


Hello Andrew,


Thank you for your reply. The LucasArts Company Store new game policy is
"When you pre-order a new game you are guaranteed to receive your order
in-home the same week the game is available in stores or we will refund your
shipping and handling charges (valid for the U.S. addresses only)".


Please contact us if we can further assist you.


Thank you for your patience,
LucasArts Company Store
1-888-532-4263



hehehe that is why the shipping handling is free.. so they don't have to refund you anything

--edit--

on the other hand do they mean.. if the game comes out the week of the 29th that we will receive our game by saturday?

meaning that week or is it.. within a week of when the game comes out.

Uhm, the same week?

That can still be later than the stores. If i lived in the US (but i dont ) I'd just walk into one of those EBs (i was in the us once, those stores are cool, dont have anything like it here) and BUY the copy right there and then

That e-mail is a load of crap. It's a standard e-mail they send to everyone who asks about pre-order shipment. I got the EXACT same letter over a month ago when I was asking about when I would receive the game. Don't take it literally. All it is is a disclaimer.

well...

Saturday IS the last day of the release week. I REALLY think it will be there Friday. This game is HUGE and they know it. I think they would want to give us something for all the disapointments in the past. Please LEC, Redeem yourself!

I would think everyone will have it by the 29th that preordered with Lucasarts. I canceled mine today though. I got it at EB when it was 10 bucks cheaper and I ordered overnight delivery, so I may even get it on the 28th with EB's new ship date. I would rather get the game by FedEx instead of USPS anyway. I don't really wanna hurt the mailman if he sticks the game in the wrong mailbox, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
