So im wondering if my CE box will come on the 22nd without having to get OverNight delivery? That puts it up to 90$ total and thats a little crazy for just one game.

Anyone know if its important to get OverNight shipping or if there is anyway to start playing on the 22nd, without getting your box that day?

Anyone else concerned about this or am I being a nervous nelly?

Some places I think offered free overnight shipping to have it to you on the 22nd. If you didn't, you likely won't get it on the 22nd. When Starcraft 2 came out, I preordered and all that but used standard shipping and didn't get it till 2 days after the release. For FFXIV this time around, I just went into a gamestop and preordered it there. My first time doing an in-store preorder =p

If you can download 22GB in one day, then sure =)

I thought Amazon was offering $1 day of release shipping. When my friend ordered his it was actually cheaper for him to get it delivered the 22nd.

Amazon is a bit cheaper, but even overnight estimates delivery on the 24th. What the eff.

your "installing" 22GB in one day :D

Hopefully the patcher doesn't have massive updates to the point of it crashing/not working :X

If you order through Amazon don't select next day delivery, there should be a "Release date delivery" option and it's only 99 cents.

I went through both GameStop online and Amazon. Amazon didnt have a 'release day' option and Gamestop with overnight was like 94 bucks.

So I called the Gamestop near me and the guy took down my name for the last copy. He said they have 11 coming on Weds, only 10 are preordered. I got lucky!

I got free release day shipping from amazon (due to amazon prime). I don't really expect it to show up until 3-5 though so I doubt I'll be logging in until thursday.

Whats funny is that there is 10 people in my area getting CE and 26 getting regular.

I wish New Jersey players would all play on one server, that would be neat.

You shouldn't need any same-day or overnight delivery. The game is likely with your chosen supplier right now, they don't magically receive the game on the date it is due for release ;) A friend of mine who works for Game already has her CE edition in shop, opened and pawed through-- she just isn't allowed to take it home yet :P

Play.com state mine is in packaging right now, expected to be posted out tomorrow. I've always pre-ordered with Play.com and always received whatever it was a day, if not two (and in the case of Age of Conan, a whole 3!) days early ready for the servers or whatever going live.
