When I went to pick up my Copy, there were at least 5 people in the queue with a copy, they had ran out of their first batch too. I got to the counter and the guy said all the people behind the desk (4 of them) just started playing the game.

I bring it up to work with me since I got the copy before work. 3 People I work with said they're playing it at the moment and like it. I start work (I work at a Pizza Hut...!) and serve a table, who happen to have the game lying there on the table. The woman told me she loved the game, and her and 3 of her friends were all starting together.

I later serve two more tables who both had a copy tucked away in a bag.

Now admitidely I do work in a shopping mall where both places are under the same roof, however to put this in context, I only ever saw about 1 guy with a copy of Halo: Reach. These numbers may seem small, but I'm only one guy, and I found it kind of weird if I'm honest, seeing so many people holding the game. It's also a feeling of community too I suppose. For all I know I could be playing with these very same people right now and not know it.

Oh and in case you're wondering, this is in the UK. And well, both FFXI Wings of the Goddess and Treasures of Aht Urghan sold out pretty quickly in the 3 game shops in this mall.

Maybe I just live in a Final Fanasy crazy place in the country, or maybe it's like this everywhere. Feel free to share any sightings you had of people holding the game.

There were 3 copies of the CE at Best Buy today - as many as would fit on the shelf, given how big they are. Several copies of the SE.

I don't think they're running out.

Yea, sure.. people will buy the game...a 30 day trial was a horrible idea. I figure it is supposed to get people addicted so they will be willing to pay every month to play. I think the opposite might be happening.

First and foremost im sorry that you work for pizza hut, as do i... i deliver and manage once in awhile here in the states (its not that bad i suppose....)

on topic that is kinda crazy that you seen that many people in one day all at the hut. but then again you did say the hut and the game store are in the same mall.
on launch day i went to walmart and didnt see any copies and i went to gamestop and they only had 1 copy and only like 4 or 5 pre-orders for the collectors edition....
personally im holding out for the ps3 version since my pc is old...
