    Well, then this is official since I work for GameStop. I intended to post this Tuesday, but something came up.

    We got a memo from GameStop HQ 6.19 saying that all Transformers: The Game product (all systems) "are not street dated" and can be sold upon arrival. The DS and PSP versions as well as the strategy guides for the game should have arrived in most if not all GameStop/EB Games/Rhino Games locations as of Wednesday 6.20.07.

    I sold two copies of the PSP version, and one DS Decep version. So I know whereof I speak.

    PS2, PS3, 360, and Wii versions should be arriving in stores shortly. The computer at my store was showing them "in transit" as of close Wednesday night. If you still want to make sure you get a copy of any of these versions, they will still be reservable/pre-orderable through 6.25.

    If you pre-ordered the DS or PSP versions via GameStop/EB Games you can pick them up NOW!!! If an employee tries to turn you down and tell you it's street dated, tell him/her she needs to read the "Store Informer" dated 6.19. That's as official as it gets.

    And in case anyone asks, the PC version is a Target exclusive.

    Incidentally, I thumbed through the strategy guide and was impressed enough that I plan to buy one and I *never* buy game guides. Futhermore, the strategy guide is 10% off if you buy it with the game on the same transaction, and it's 20% off if you've got the GameStop/EB Games EDGE card.

    The guide's chock full of very detailed images and info -- both from the game AND the movie -- including more in-depth character descriptions than have been released anywhere else to date.

    Was not too happy with the DS screencaps. If they're anything in the game like they're presented in the guide, the graphics are pretty crappy. Very pixelated and fuzzy. But otherwise, I can't wait to get my hands on my PS2 copy as soon as it arrives.

    Sorry, I didn't read enough through for the "secrets". If someone doesn't grab a copy and post about it between now and then, I'll post Thursday night after I get home from work.

    I work next to a Gamestop, got my PSP version today, and they will let me know when they get it for 360 :D 

    I'd love to see them get it earlier if it is "in transit"

    I may have to get a guide to get the extra goodies and all.

    You as much as I am on TF boards and looked at all the game spots I had no idea it was coming out this soon. Even with the pushed up date I figured it would come out late july early august. I wonder if this is going to be a good movie tie in game. It looks rediculously sweet but the only movie games I ever liked was the chronicles of ridick and spiderman games. Oh and path of neo rocked
