Empire at War being delivered already??

Some people have actually received a copy of Empire at War from EB games. The game release date changes were obviously ignored and the game was sold early. I wondered if anyone else has the game...

If this is true then more stores need to break date because I suspect when this game hits the torrent network, all hell will break loose....

I can quote the posts by the people, and trust me I tend not to believe people about getting a game before the release date as usually they just want to make people feel jealous etc etc, but this is true. Apparantely, in Canada, the shop has taken orders for Feb 8th or 9th (the earlier release date) and has given out the game to those who preordered from ebgames before the date was changed. Surely without Lucasart's consent this is illegal is it not?

I'm sorry to tell you that this is BS, Ebgames doesn't usually recieve their shipment of games until the day before it is released. Anyone else that tells you they have the game is blowing smoke up your butt...

Yet they haven't actually changed the date of release over there from the 9th.

Might have to call my parents and have them stop at a store up there if someone up there doesn't confirm this....

Quote: "See the problem with EB games is their system. I spoke to one of the managers and he said the game was listed as in transit or something around that nature. They [eb games head qauters] neglected to mention the release date in their invoice. So basically unless their staff KNOWS what the actual release date is they will not refuse to sell it. I suggest you run to EB games asap before the problem is corrected. "

Posts of that nature. Since there aren't any EBgames shops near me (At least I don't think there are) I cannot confirm that this is true. I just wanted to make people aware of this so that someone on these boards can confirm it.

EDIT: I live in the UK so there's no way I can get to Canada in a few hours lol. If someone over there knows about this please confirm or deny.
