    Dan said it was Okey-day to ask it here since it's game specific
    When does Buy.com usually ship games? Is it on street or do they tend to ship targeting street? I want to know when I should start pannicking on Steel Batallion if I don't get notice [​IMG]

    I should say that aside from T2 being 5 days after street, and some SKU mixups on their end with Lethal Weapon DCs, I've had nothing but good service from them, just wondering about games specifically

    I only ordered from Buy once and it was horrible. I preordered Silpheed for PS2 a good 4 months before it came out(actually 1 month before original date with 3 months of delays). Anyways, after the game finally did get finished, they didn't ship it for 3 weeks after the local walmart got it in and I eventually cancelled my order.

    so in other words, if I don't see a shipping notice by the day before street, it's time to panic?
