As mentioned above, it happened with Rogue Leader, and who is to say it wouldn't happen with JK2? Maybe not a week, but certainly a couple of days.

Actually, March 29th is the in store date. The shipping date will probably be the 27th or 28th.

Um....Shark.........

Shipping WOULD only be refunded to those whom have chosen the 2 day shipping. If LEC ships later, like I said, they're going to loose A LOT of profit if the game arrives on or after the release. ALL US STATES have the "refund policy" available for new game releases. If the West-boarder states get it before the 31st, that's great, LEC doesn't loose profit on them at all, but the midwest and east coast people's copies take 3-5 day shipping, which, WOULD AGAIN put the doorstep receivce date on the 31st or the week after, which would implement LEC's "week of the release" policy.

And, depending on where you are in relation to where they ship it from, and what method of delivery you selected, you too could have the game around the release date, unless that bit about 3-19 is true (and I still have yet to see it).

My bad Mustang, I didnt even take into consideration that some people would upgrade their shipping. If that was the case then yeah I can see them losing a bit of money. I guess we'll find out by the 20th if people that pre-ordered get shipping confirmations. I would feel really stupid if that happened seeing how I canceled my Lucasarts pre-order yesterday.

Indy4...make sure you type in your password when you look up your order status. Your order number shouldnt be your password, it should be whatever you decided on when you signed up.

You use your order number whenever you need to contact them about your order. Makes it much easier for them to look up.

Backordered is pretty much when they are sold out and are waiting on their next shipment. Don't worry about that though, it's been backordered ever since it was available to pre-order.

I don't exactly know what to tell you. I just cancelled my order from LEC today. Do you have any stores around that sell games in the mall or anything? I went to my Software Etc. on Saturday and put a copy on reserve and they even told me they are getting it in on the 28th. I didn't want to take any chances with LEC considering how much I want this game.

I think we need to give LEC a bit more credit. I've decided to wait untill the week of JO's release to consider cancelling my order if they havn't sent it yet or something. Thats because most people in my area don't lik star wars. I know this for a fact, when Galactic Battle gorund came out by me not that many people bought it. So, when it arrives at the best buy by where i live i could easily get it. But anyways, we do need to give LEC better credit, i know some of my friends preordered from them before and they got their games sometimes a week to half a week before it was in stores.

Anywayz, if it IS 19...it's tomorrow...you'll see.....

Definition of Backorder - The product has sold out...the retailer is ordering for more.

It happened when I ordered my Asus motheboard...backorder for a week...

Remember though that LEC is packaging and shipping the game in North America. So they can ship what ever they want and when ever they want. it doesn't matter when the STORES get them, the company gets them first and they distribute to the stores and online services. So it could be bloody likly that the game could get shipped this week to people who have preorders and such.

Around where I live, new releases usually are put on the shelves on a Tuesday, so people that pre-order will usually sometimes get the game before the retailers. I've worked at K-Mart, Target, and Wal-Mart and they all usually put their new releases (video games, music CD's, movies etc.) out on a Tuesday, but will recieve the product way ahead of that.... sometimes 3 or 4 days before the stock date. I know me and my friends would always get first dibs on games and such, we'd be home playing the games before anyone ever had them. Same thing with the PS2, it was a hot item and every employee in the store that wanted one already HAD one. Of course it depends on the management, had a few managers that would not allow this, but some just didn't care. I don't think many people can do this now, because if the register scans a product and it is before the release date it kicks you out of the system or some junk, so it's not really possible to do this anymore without stealing it.

Another way of ensuring you get the game 'early' is if you have a Wal-Mart supercenter that's open 24 hours, go there at midnight... you'll land you a copy pretty quick. But beware, it's almost impossible to find someone to check you out at those hours... your best bet is to just make a mad dash for the doors.

Don't think anyone knows for sure. Have patience, you should have it by next friday at the latest. Just don't get your hopes up on LEC shipping them out to pre-orders this week.

Guys guys...chill.

I have ordered from LEC directly since years. Their products always arrived *after* EB had it in their stores. The last game i got directly from LEC was Grim Fandango and that arrived 3-4 days after stores had it.

They first ship most of their inventory to the stores. Then the pre-orders from the LEC site.

Eb pre-order is your best bet. Mail or Mall pickup.

Indy....stop worrying there buddy. You worrying isnt going to affect what happens. Just wait it out. If you dont get a shipping confirmation by the 27th just cancel with LEC and pre-order from EB or Gamestop.

I was just at the site, and it didn't say ANYTHING about being shipped or released on the 19th. Maybe it was a typo, and the LEC people took it off. Don't get me wrong, I hope it's shipped on the 19th, (in time for spring break!) but it doesn't look good.
