Guess I'll have to see if I can "woo" somebody at the local store in an attempt to get my hands on the game early. Not that it can be for sure; what you read on the internet is hardly documented fact in all cases, but I've read several posts on various sites where people have said that they've already got their copy of the game.

Doubt you will get it. The shop will get their heads kicked in if they release early unless preorder

1) It was pre-ordered.
2) It's called a friend that works at a retail place.

well if your friend works there then you have a pretty good chance.

it really all boils down to whether or not their big-boss is there. (oh well, no biggie either way. i'm not going to die if i don't get it.) hell, last night the bulb in my Samsung DLPHDTV went out. finally, after 2 1/2 years of me using the TV like no tomorrow... one of those things that you know is going to happen, but it sucks when it does. anyway, i'm not waiting for Samsung to get the part here to play, so last night in a rush I ran out and bought a 42" plasma to hold me over until the bulb is fixed.

Happens alot. I got FIFA 10 about 1 week before everybody else in my country. The shop were I preorderd it, got a few copies early and decided to give the first people on the list their copy. I was like nr. 5 on the list because I preorderd it like 2 months after FIFA 09 came out.

Jealous!!!!

I've been waiting for an F1 game for years.

Hopefully ShopTo are their usual efficient selfs ans post out a day early, that'll do for me :)

Just to let you know if it may affect someone of you.. according to rumors Amazon (at least Amazon.de) is about to ship the pre-orders on Monday, 20 Sept. so that probably those who have pre-ordered the game will receive it on Tuesday or Wednesday

I can't wait to get my copy ;-)

Not necessarily, I'd presume that would be for the super savers, so with 2-3 days, best you could probs expect is one day early :/
If they send out super savers early though, why even have the option for first class? :confused:

That sucks about the stores in your area. I've already got confirmation that my store gets it tomorrow at its noon delivery, and that's when I'll pick it up - unless my lazy a$$ is yet to have awaken.

I've also confirmed that some stores received their copies earlier today. Too bad it wasn't my store. :(

A Dutch webshop (a pretty big one) got the game yesterday and already sent it out to the ones that preordered. They'll be receiving their games today... Too bad I don't feel like paying €64 instead of the €44 I paid for it :(

how people get their games early

1) they know a friend/family member/manager at a game stop
2) they download the games
3) go to the mom and pop shops, this is how I get my games early all the time.

Received mine from ShopTo today. Been on pre-order for 2 years(!) and paid for over 6 months. Happy days, ShopTo FTW! They sent Halo Reach, Forza 3, NFS Shift, Bioshock 2, Final Fantasy XIII and many others before release, gotta love them.
Won't shop anywhere else.
Cheers.

I've had my game on preorder for nearly a year now at shopto, and I got it today! I have no idea why they sent it to me so early, but I ain't complaining! Been playing it all day, and done half a season already.

You should have checked properly. They had the game on preorder since 2008, with a black cover and a big "F1" in white on the cover. They started receiving payments at the beginning of this year, I paid as soon as they were taking payments and I even manged to "save" 0.14p over the original price. :woop:
