I've got one with Zelda and Red Steel waiting for me to pick up after work at the local Blockbusters. May sneak out earlier this afternoon though.

I took yesterday off work to prep some space under the telly, and i'm off today waiting... (and on my 5th coffee already!)
You must have had some stuff to shift yesterday.
yeah, the gamecube and a bit of a wiring nightmare. Also took yesterday off in the hope that it might arrive early. :)

Funnilly enough, I think that refreshing the website every 30 seconds DID help my delivery!

Did they give any idea of the delivery times?

Unfortunately not, it does say they sold out of the last batch in 7 minutes, so I wouldn't bother checking after 10 past 3.

At the moment it's just other sellers offering them at ridiculous prices, no sight of any from Amazon.

I was in Wooleys in Halifax and they had for normal sale. The girl behind the counter thought they had non so was turning customers away until the stock room bloke rang through to query why they were still unsold!
