    Went into a Game and HMV in Edinburgh on my way home and both were sold out.
    So I went down to the Tesco Direct store and found 3 copies. Well they have two left now.

    No code, but them I'm not that fussy for it.

    £39.98. Same as Amazon and since they weren't going to get a copy to me till Monday (ordered Thursday night using Amazon Prime so it usually takes a day) I cancelled that and picked it up in store.

    HMV Edinburgh apparently said it was £37 but sold out and Gamestation were £45. No idea how much Game had it for.

    My mistake. I only bought one copy.
    Though I believe he is getting it.

    Played through the first level. It's long but enjoyable.

    Got mine through the post with Shockers this morning. Finally managed to retrieve the unlock code from Activision! That was painful, trying to register!

    Protip: register in advance on Activision's website, then login during the code generation process. I kept getting a 404 error when it should've given me the code! :(

    I caved and put SMG2 on hold for this, got it in the post from the rainforest this morning.

    My wallet checked itself into hospital, its bleeding profusely after 3 new games in almost as many weeks and a ton of books.

    Went to game and gamestation with a mate yesterday and asked why it was sold out. Apparantly the excuse is that Game policy is they will only get enough in stock on release days for pre orders due to the "current finacial crisis". I've heard less bolocks in an audio book of gay orgys.

    Finally got me a copy today, one solitary PS3 copy in Gamestation.

    The guy said I should preorder Activision titles as they only get enough to fill preorders.

    Played a couple of hours tonight, I love it. And the credits are amazing.

    Loads of stuff in the media as to how GAME is in a lot of trouble financially. They're closing down a load ofstores and may be bought out within the next year or so. This is probably why they're being cagey about getting stock in. All HMV stores i've been in seem to be well stocked. So are the supermarkets.

    The Sainsburys near me had none, I checked every day.

    They did have one copy of Autobots for DS, but no PS3 or XBox copies.

    It's all Activision's fault, I think. Rumour is that a lot of UK retailers aren't ordering large amounts of their games in protest of their pricing structure. Gamestation told me they wouldn't exchange it for cash either, only trade.

    Bah, anyway I got one now, so it's all good for me, heh.

    My pre-order from Amazon which should have arrived either on release day or the day after, won't be with me until July 9th even though its supposedly already been shipped.

    Seriously fuck you Amazon.

    My pre-order for PC arrived from Amazon on the release day, only ordered on 20th. I guess anyone who hasn't received theirs yet is waiting for the next shipment of discs to arrive.
