    I was just wondering. I stopped by an EBgames at lunch and was told it does not come out until tomorrow. I was told it would be out today by a local gamestore owner. That was Saturday, though, and he could've been mistaken.
    I checked the Official Playstation Mag. Board, but it is useless. Just wondering if anyone knew the scoop. The EBgames guys suggested I pre-order and while I know it goes against the sentiment of most on this forum, I hate pre-ordering anything.

    EB told me it is out tomorrow, but the FYE is going to sell it later today. Just look around, and you will probably find it today.

    Got mine from Fedex this morning (ebgames.com). Haven't been home yet to connect, but will let you all know how it goes.

    Have mine, along with Socom. At work currently so I can't connect it yet but I will be on Socom later this evening.

    My friend got his, hooked it up, got me to come over to help him with it, got it to work, and played SOCOM online. Then, his little baby cousin broke his PS2 a few hours later so it won't read the disc.

    Not yet. I'm still not sold on the Sony PS2 online plans. SOCOM sounds interesting, but not enough to make go for it yet. I currently building a new PC (when I'm done I shall be buying new games) and should get Mario Sunshine in the mail tomorrow, so I have plenty to keep me busy for now.

    West Omaha Best Buy report: They had about 10 of them when they opened this morning... I don't expect they'll last terribly long...
    Now, I need to go dive into my Cat5 cable nest and find one long enough to go from the PS2 to the router... Wish me luck! [​IMG]

    Got online last night. Setup and installation was a breeze. I don't have any online games other than the demos it came with, though. I tried the demos, but I suck at Frequency and don't know much about football.

    Who here has played Socom? Is it all that?

    I have Socom, but I didn't have a lot of time to play it last night. The servers were up/down/up/down/slow/fine/up/down. Just like an Everquest expansion launch day [​IMG].
    It looks like it COULD be a lot of fun.

    Well, I didn't preorder, hoping I'd be one of the lucky few Live beta testers.
    Got Mario Sunshime instead, figuring that would be the more "family" game.
    But, its raining hard here,so my day plans got canceled.
    My other half (who feeds my addiction to DVD & gaming) gave her blessing to go & get one.
    Called the local EB's & Funco's - sold out
    Tried TRU's - none
    My local KB says they aren't gonna even carry them.
    Called the last resort - CC (hey,its only 3 miles away) - & they (as usual) haven't got a clue. I hate CC...
    Finally called my 2 area BB - one sold out, the other has one left, & won't hold it.
    So I put to good use my professional driving skills & drive the 20 miles to the store.
    I've said it before, & I'll say it again - I love BB [​IMG]
    I won't be able to test it till later, but I got it!

    I am so loved.

    I played SOCOM last night at a friend's house. I can honestly tell you that the only experience was amazing. We also were playing around noon since he got the NA and SOCOM early yesterday morning, so the servers were running fine. We tried to play Frequency (the demo only) online but we couldn't connect to those servers. Oh well.

    Morgan: I was just playing Frequency online. It's pretty fun - you host a game, people show up, you chat, and then start the song. I recommend connecting a USB keyboard to your PS2 as the Frequency people like to chat.

    I don't have a USB keyboard, but I will probably end up buying one just for my PS2.

    Apparently if you have the full release of Frequency you can swap out the demo Frequency and play your full version. DOn't have this to test as I only have the Linux kit network adapter (which is broadband only - don't mind not have 56K). Also I do have SOCOM and it's cool. Lots of controls to get use to, but with practice that should would out fine. Enjoy the online experience. Soon more games will come.

    Just a quick update for people in the Dallas, TX area. I was just up at Fry's on 635 and they have 9 more adapters left. I picked mine up, but alas, I don't get off from work till 7am. [​IMG]
