    I pre ordered fable 2 a month ago from future shop i think its realeased on the 21st am i supposed to get it on the 21st:confused: If i am im :mad: :nutkick: since todays the 21st if anyone knows if it should arrive today please tell me or if it arrives tommorow youd think if you paid the extra 20 buck for shipping youd get it before other people can go out and buy it in the stores. also does anyone know if they have any guarantees like if you dont get it by whenever you get free shipping or any thing.

    Erm, if the business you are dealing with is halfway decent, they should be contacting you to inform you when it has shipped....as is pretty customary for businesses...

    You'll know before...WE...know..

    Its this friday! :D Shit, I thought it was next :rolleyes:

    I pre-ordered mine from Game, due to a special offer they had, I usually order from play.com here, and the last two games I had on pre-order arrived a day early :rockout:

    It usually depends on the company selling the game. Some ship the game on the day it is released, so you get it a few days later. Others ship a day or two early so you get the game the day it is released.

    The day the game is shipped depends on the publisher. Basically, the publisher mandates that no consumer can have the product before x date. Some retailers like Gamestop may ship it (or at least box it) the day before release. I don't know of any service that will have it at your door the day it comes out. If you want it the day it is released, best to get it from a local retailer.
