FSX (Both RETAIL versions) seen at Best Buy in Ohio

Recommended Posts

Guest rangeral

Call me a troll all you want, I've been reading this forum for awhile. But I finally have something to contribute.I've just seen BOTH RETAIL VERSIONS of FSX in a Best Buy in NE Ohio. It wasn't just a "pre-order" box, it was the honest to goodness real thing. Unfortunately for me, I pre-ordered, so I'll have to wait a few days. Just wanted to get the word out.

I believe you. Someone else just posted on the Flightsim.com forum that they just picked it up at Best Buy too. Sounds like Best Buy has busted the release date. It may not be all of them, but definitely worth checking out if you have a Best Buy reasonably nearby. I will check mine ASAP and reprot back.

I wonder if you will be able to activate it before October 17th?

Apparently Best Buy is selling it everywhere. I just picked up a copy in the Albany NY area. They had both the deluxe and regular version. No problem activating it online. Installed it on the same drive with FS9 and there doesn't seem to be any conflict. Fitz

No go unfortunately. Same for Circuit City, CompUSA, Target, and Walmart. I'll check Best Buy again tonight or tomorrow morning.

Thanks AJ, I too called Best Buy, Circuit City, and CompUSA, i was going to try Walmart next. By the way, one Best Buy told me October 17th, and the other two stores I called never heard of it and instead suggested FS2004, heh. No mention of it on any of those comanies websites either, I guess I'll be checking the BX (AAFES) next they have everything.Jeff

#### it. My XP machine is not ready. I still add another harddrive to the FS9 machine. Guess I have to wait until my work is not that busy.

Well if its out its out. I'm just a mere mortal and will have to wait till the 17th for my copy or maybe even a couple of days latter with mailing since I preordered it.Not going make me change my perorder. If anybody should get it early should be sites like this that have stores and have been here for the FS communties.

first of all i'm new to the forum. i work for best buy and we were informed by company daily news that some stores might receive the product early but not to sell the product until october 17. did see the new fsx guide book come in today and took a fast look thru it. at least the pictures are in color and has some good information. looks like it is from a different source compared to fs9. if the media supervisors want to keep their jobs they won't break the street date!

Why would Microsoft want to inhibit stores from selling early if they already have the product? I fail to see the logic behind this policy. It only seems to have started haoppening in the last 3-4 years. Seems to me, the the sooner the finished product hits the streets, the sooner Microsoft starts making money from sales. What is the advantage to them of having it go on sale everywhere on exactly the same day?

I just contacted the Best Buy in Greenville, SC - they have 10 copies of the standard version, and 4 copies of the deluxe. I guess I'm going to be making a trip in the morning! :)Best,Owen
