The Digital Bits doesn't have a listing for any pre-order date for "Home Alone 2: Lost In New York"  and Amazon.com still has the statement: "This title has not yet been released", where the release date usually goes for ordering./img/vbsmilies/htf/confused.gif

Yet, High-Def Digest, Blu-ray.com, DVD Empire and DVD Planet have the release date as October 6. /img/vbsmilies/htf/crazy.gif

Wonder what will actually develop in two days time?/img/vbsmilies/htf/rolleyes.gif

Thanks for the heads-up Dave. 

It's listed $2.00 more than the price at Amazon but it's available @ Best Buy-online and it said it was available at my local store, so I canceled my Amazon preorder. 
They really need to get their release dates coordinated with the studios if they want the business.  I'm not going to wait and I also have a $25.00 Best Buy gift card I received for a birthday present that now will  come in handy.
