    Thanks, UPS.

    MS shipped it in a flimsy envelope.

    Mike,

    Mine showed up yesterday... bent!

    I called support, and they don't have any replacements yet!!!!!!!! So now I'll be offline from 11/14 until they find a disc, decide to ship it out, and UPS gets it to me (hopefully un-broke this time).

    Geez!

    p.s. Originally from Bergen County.

    I believe that the update will update the Live software on the `BOX, because it will point it to the retail servers instead of the Beta ones... or maybe it's the games that are updated with the server info, not sure. In any case, they've said that the Beta discs will no longer work after 11/14. That's why I'll be offline.

    Thanks for clarifying that. I'm glad that we got it straightened out.

    I have the retail NFL Fever 2003 so I'll be able to play that on the 15th.

    I'm not worried about MechAssault since I won't be able to play it until late Friday night anyway.

    At least some of you got your retail discs...

    I have neither received a disc nor an e-mail saying they are shipping it... Should I be worried?

    Andrew,

    I never got my final e-mail either, but here is a way to find out if it's coming to you.

    Got to UPS.com and track a package using a reference number.

    Reference #: FF 11/5/2002

    Change the dates to 10/15/2002 - 11/15/2002

    Input your zip code and country, and then track the packages.

    The reference number I gave is the one being used for the Xbox Live Final discs. If there is more than one coming to your zip, you'll have to call UPS and narrow it down from there.

    Mine is coming tomorrow, and it looks like there are 5 other discs coming to my zip code as well. Hope that helps.

    It looks like most discs will be getting to peopl on the 13th as planned.

    According to that lookup, 3 have been delivered in my area, and 1 is out for delivery... mine?

    Might be.

    Call UPS ask them if they can verify an address if you give them the tracking number. That's how I figured out mine would be her tomorrow. Hope you get it today though!

    Just to tune in on the MA point. The evaluation copy of the game works online now, but will not after the 15th just like the beta games. There are are some outstanding single player levels to play while we wait for the servers to go "live" [​IMG]...

    NFL Fever retail doesn't work. I still get the message about "come back soon" or something.

    Still awaiting my XBox Live Final CD replacement. I'd like to take Friday off from work (I have a LOT of days left to take) but it would be a bitch if I actually NEED the disc and it shows up at work...Friday.

    I'm hoping that people are right and the final CD is just updates to the games.

    Mike

    My disk showed up bent. How do you go about requesting a new one.

    P.S.
    Once I install the new retail version do I still need to have the network tester and xbox updater still saved in the harddisk?

    I called XBox, and the rep gave me the number for the distribution company that sent the discs. I don't have the number on me.
    I'm real sorry to hear about your disc [​IMG]. MS moved to this new distro company and it looks like it was a bad move.
