    Today is suppose to be the day when EB games will get their copies for the 'regular' edition. (ones non-preorder folks like me can buy).

    Please use this thread to update the status of various video game retailers in GTA on the availability of Civ4.

    Let's start the countdown!

    Update: I just called EBG in eaton center 10:30 EST and they said they won't receive the regular copies today. They only have the collector's edition for the preorder only folks.

    Eaton Center can suck balls.
    I'll be checking with EB games uptown, dufferin mall and gamerama. If none of these get them.... maybe I'll call yorkdale and sherway gardens or or what's left that's ttc accessible

    Yorkdale just said the same thing. The guy also said that they won't get the regular copies until end of this week or early next week....

    EBG sucks big time...

    Compusmart said the shipment got pushed back to tomorrow as well...

    Non-preorder fans here in toronto are all pretty much screwed I guess...

    I wonder why our shipment is delayed....

    Maybe the truck driver hit a moose on his way to Toronto...

    Just saw the review of gamespot on civ 4 (9.4)... DAMN I WANT THE GAME!

    perhaps its a good idea if everyone who bought a copy in the greater toronto area mentioned which store/name, location they got it at? To help others find the few stores that did get them and which day? Waddaya think? :goodjob:

    Perhaps you should look at the first post :p that's why the thread was open...but it seems no one who didn't pre-order has gotten it.

    In another post someone suggested it might have something to do with the French Canadian manuals accidentally being shipped to the U.S. I think this might have something to do with it, apparently the shippers buggered this one.

    Of course. :) We've gotta help each other out. This is a difficult time for Toronto civers :p

    I say we should all continuously call EB games and demande to know who their supplier is and then gather all together and get our own copies from them..........by force of course.

    I called EBgames again 2 minutes ago - he said that no where has it, and that there's some issue with distribution, and that he's hoping that by some fluke some copies will come in a shipment today, but more likely tomorrow.

    Atleast they spent time explaining the situation to you. Most got annoyed by all the 'Civ IV' phone calls that they only spend 2 seconds to say 'It will come tomorrow' before they hang up.
