    So what is going on.

    earlier today several were listed for preorder including the searchers and the mission impossible set. now listed as not yet available.

    Sky Captain is listed twice.
    once as normal and again, not yet released

    most other sites have all the releases available for sale or preorder.

    what are they doing.

    i havent checked the BR section , i dont have a player so i dont know if the same is happening with that.

    Same thing for The Italian Job and We Were Soldiers. Nada. Weird? And some of their titles say, 'items will be shipped estimated 6-11 days" [​IMG]....what's up with that? [​IMG]

    I contacted Amazon early this month and the replies were to the effect that it takes time to get the official announcements. Interesting.... I inquired about Aeon Flux on street date as an example and it still shows as not released yet at Amazon. Searchers has been on and off of the order system at Amazon several times this month. It now says NOT AVAILABLE. It was only up for order for a short time. Yesterday they lowered the price of SILENT HILL from $ 26.?? to $ 16.??. VERY STRANGE. Has anyone received a ship notice or ready to ship posting from Amazon yet for the 8/22 titles????

    Is it because they can't get enough titles to stock?
    Thanks.

    Related to pre-order for SEARCHERS, Amazon sent E-mail that they can't get any from their supplier and that expected date is September 20. They said they would compensate by providing expedited shipping when title arrives.
