    I recieved an automated call from Gamestop yesterday that said they were having a midnight release for it tonight, so today I call them up just to confirm it.

    After attempting to call them five times (One of which they picked up the phone then hung up on me.) I finally was able to speak to someone. I asked them about the midnight release and they told me that there is no midnight release for the game. I asked if I could pick it up tomorrow but then they tell me the game isn't being released tomorrow either. Then they say the game is being released Thursday but they won't receive the game in stores until Saturday.

    Is anyone else having this problem and can someone explain to me what the fuck is going on? This is the 5th god damn preorder that I've had a problem with and after this I'm no longer doing business with them.

    I tried the other GameStop in my area and they told me Thursday. I'm confused.

    It says on both Gamestop.com and the Transformers game website.
    http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/games/transformers-dark-of-the-moon/90280

    Which one was that? And still though that is Wednesday, they told me the release date is Thursday now.

    The date Gamestop has in their computers is the 14th, so automated calls and texts are sent out based on that date.

    That said, I and several others called up the Gamestops we pre-ordered from and got several different days. I and a few others were told Wednesday, the 15th. Others have been told Thursday and Friday.

    If you pre-ordered with Gamestop, then the best thing to do is call them (if you haven't already), find out when they'll have the game and go the day they say. If you didn't pre-order, then try a TRU or Target or Best Buy or what-have-you and see if they have it out tomorrow.


    It seems that Activision decided to change the release date last minute, most likely due to the number of big name titles hitting tomorrow and to avoid having the game buried.

    I live in Rhode Island. I preordered the game in the next town over only five minutes away.


    Of course :banghead: 
    Am I the only one who doesn't care for Duke Nukem? It looks alright but I'll probably end up renting it or buying it on clearance price years from now.

    Thanks I didn't see that before :)

    Just to try an alleviate some tension in the original post, you were probably calling at a very busy time. I've worked for GameStop for years and some times you just get swamped and can't answer the phone. As for the hang up, if it happened immediately then I suspect they grabbed the phone and it fell out of their hands. I've done that a number of times. It's annoying on both ends.

    As for the release date confusion I'd say something got changed and the corporate office didn't bother to send out an email explaining when things will arrive. It's likely a low priority game so no one is rushing to learn the truth. Stores will be using basically gossip to guess when the game will arrive.

    Want to know how sure they are of a date? Ask them where they got the information of the new date. Find out if this was a message from corporate or if they just heard it from someone. All employees are required to read the store emails so if corporate sent it they should be able to tell you that was their source.

    Amazon has it listed to release today but it says the game is not in stock. Looks like the company decided to hold off on the release for a few days.

    Yeah, call your stores. Mine said they literally just got the shipment in about 5 minutes ago.

    Going to pick it up now, my XBL is GeneticFusion, add me! =)

    Picked mine up for the 360. The computers in Gamestop say a different date than today to sell them, but I guess they're still selling them.

    Also, my receipt says Sidewipe. >.>

    He skates pretty damn smoothly. I wouldn't say amazingly fast, but it's pretty quick.

    His weapons are a Scope Burst Rifle and a Machine Gun. Stealth Force weapons are Rockets and Guns.

    Abilites are a dash and a Melee Spin.

    Melee is just one swipe of his blades.
