September 9 will SUCK.

September 9 will suck.

You know why?

Because I pre-ordered the Beatles Rock Band Bundle with George&John's guitars from Amazon.ca, and delivery date estimate? September 16th - 17th.

ONE FREAKIN' WEEK AFTER EVERYONE IS HAVING FUN.

F*** my life.

    Preorder from a Gamestop or Best Buy. I wouldn't order from Amazon unless you got a killer deal.

    I would never preorder anyway. I just go to the store on release date, so I don't have to wait until this thing is shipped to my home.

    Although in case of Rockband I have to import since no Rockband game was region free yet and I guess the Beatles game won't be as well. And I have an US Xbox but live in Austria. :p

    I've preordered games from amazon.ca in the past and the delivery date estimate is always wrong. They ship it the day before so you usually get it on release date. Or if not that, a day or 2 after. I'm in Toronto by the way.

    I'm really looking forward to this game, but I don't know when I will be able to get it. I'll be in college, and without a car. I'll have to wait for the weekend to go home and buy it. But I won't be upset. Until the weekend I'd probably be looking at all the reviews and gameplay videos on youtube, but not anything which spoils the story mode. The wait won't be that big of a deal. I suggest you figure out what you'll be doing during the wait.

    I'll still be able to get the game September 9th, but that just had to be my first day of school.

    I only pre-order limited editions anymore. and even then sometimes I don't even bother. For TB:RB I'm just going to hit up Best Buy on my lunch break. Or if I get that paranoid about it selling out I'll buy it online, then just pick it up locally.

    I know second day of school. I'm considering pre ordering because it's a full day. They just keep your copy aside for you for in store pre ordering right? I've never pre ordered a game before.

    Gamestop holds it for 2 days, I believe, when you preorder. Other vendors may have different policies.

    That's about when I'm getting the game myself, from Amazon.com. But I'll be living in Hawaii. I am not sure of the local gaming scene there and how hard it is to find games that just came out. In my area now, there's tons of game and electronics stores. But Hawaii is a frickin' island. There's only so many places you can look before you're stuck.

    I don't mind waiting. I can keep busy with normal Rock Band.

    Same, luckily it's a shorter day with no homework, so it's like suffer for a few hours, and then play TBRB for the next 8 hours, so I think we can all manage.

    My day is no shorter whatsoever. Plus, my bus schedule changed, so now instead of getting home at 2:40 I get home at 3:13. Damn economy. Maybe my school should stop spending money on new whiteboards and other stuff that doesn't matter and not cut the number of buses so I can go home and play the Beatles: Rock Band. :P

    Ooo that sucks, my first day is only like 1 hour long because it is an orientation day, but to be fair, I have to wait until 3 for the bus, and I won't get home until about 4 so you will still have the game before me.

    it's times like these that make me wish I had taken driver's ed last year.

    Not in college. I have a class at, I believe, 9:00 that goes until 9:50. Then I'm off until 5:30, but I'll probably only have time to pick it up and play a few songs (if that, depends on how parking on campus is). Luckily that class ends at 6:45, so as soon as I'm out, I'm heading straight home and playing for the rest of the night.

    My class the next day starts at 9:30, so I think I can manage not staying up too late.

    Ok, has something changed in the past 13 years since I graduated college? Do semesters now end in September or something?

    Who cares?!? So what if you miss the second class of pre-1800s english lit or don't have your full concentration for junior year HS chemistry. Spoiler: Milton's jokes aren't very funny and acid+base=salt+water. Quit whining and either resolve to drink extra coffee the next morning or just wait until the weekend. Sheesh!

    LOL - Who actually goes to class? That must be a new development as well.

    Yeah I use free shipping. I can only speak to Toronto though. I don't know about other parts of the country.

    When Sept. 9th rolls around will have already been in school for a month. I'm hoping i will stay busy enough to keep my mind off the game and before i know it, it will be time to pick it up!

    oh and i'm also planning on doing a big Beatles project for my senior project this year!

    I would have loved to have taken advantage of Amazon's deal that could have saved me $$ on TBRB and the bundle, but I just didn't want to chance not having it on release day. Sure, they usually try to get it there release day, but all this waiting, and a day off specifically requested for this are my main focus. No way would I take a chance on hoping an online order will get here on that day (even if it does, it wouldn't show up until the afternoon - wasting half a day of TBRB glory). I will gladly pay the extra $$ to ensure that I am playing this right away on 09/09/09.

    Wow you guys start pretty late, I'll be a month in by then. But that might be worse because I'll actually have homework and stuff and with 3 college level courses I don't think I'll be getting too lucky lol.

    There was the thing where you could buy another game, save 20% on another purchase...with the bundle, it would have saved $50 on that. That might have been enough for me to just get the bundle and sell off the parts I didn't need. Not quite enough with the risk of not getting the game on release day, however.
