    I didn't think this was news-worthy, so I posted it here. I was looking at IGN's system release date info, and the PSP version of the TFTM game is set for the 19th of this month. I checked EB's website and it's also set for the 19th.

    This link also shows some of the specs to the game at the very bottom.

    Yeah, that's scary. I'll give it a shot, and comment on it here to let PSP owners know if it's worth the money.

    I just hope the firmware on it isn't too high. I'd hate to give up my homebrew (yes, homebrew) for this game. I remember buying GTA LCS and owning the disc for quite some time before I could even play it.

    I went by the local EB yesterday, little dipshit said it'd be the 20th. Email from EB/Gamestop I got this week said it'd be the 19th though.

    The Date on sites are Ship dates. Games usually are sold 1-2 days after that ship date, so your little dipshit could still easily be right.

    So be it, but he is still little dipshit. Anyway you look at it, I'll be entertained till the movies premier and after if this game lives up to its claims.

    Custom firmware. I know it's scary messing with your virgin 1.5, but it's SO worth it.

    Plus once you've flashed it once, it's like getting the first scratch on a leather jacket. You won't be scared to wear it anywhere.

    Oh, I have custom firmware, but there is always that element of "If". I'm not quite current with it since I did it originally it was because of the PS1 support. It does everything since then so I haven't felt the need to upgrade to a newer custom. Dark Alex is great though and I'm sure it won't be a big deal.

    I agree with everything you said, hehe. I need a copy of LCS again though, for that reason.

    Just saying, even if the stores do get it a week early..if it is street dated it won't (read: can't) be sold before then.

    Stores got Diamond and Pearl in at least a week before it was due out, but you still couldn't pick it up before the 22nd.

    THe 19th is the shipping date for all the versions of the movie game. However, none will be sold *legally* till the 26. I expect to see both the DS and PSP versions up for download before the 26th though.

    Hello, Heat Guy. Your friendly neighborhood little dipshit here--aka GameStop/EB Games lackey.

    The DS versions of the TF game also show a ship date of 6.19, as does the official strategy guide for the game. However, the vendor still has a locked-down street date of 6.26, which means stores won't sell it until that day. Violation of the vendor's street date involves fines, public floggings, and chronic diarrhea.

    I should add though, that it's possible the PSP/DS versions of the game as well as the strategy guide could actually be available before that street date. It happened recently for the Shrek The 3rd game -- stores were allowed to sell the DS version a week before the street date, for some odd reason.

    Being that I work there, I'll keep a eye out for any updates to the release date and/or any memos involving this title that I'm allowed to share here.

    i didn't see any. Asked at a Gamestop the other day and was told it is on the 26th like all the others. I'll still look at Target and Walmart, but I don't expect anything.

    It's now shipping from gamestop.com at least. I ordered the PSP version during the free overnight shipping special this past weekend and I now have a tracking number. I already had tomorrow off from work so now I have to decide if I want to stay home and wait for the UPS guy...
