Better than the US situation, where some BB's are waiting until the 17th lol, here FS and BB actually had ads for the "early" FSX release. I'll try again later today. They've still got the entire afternoon and evening to get FSX in.Yea, I know that is sucks that they appear to be only advertising the Standard Edition, but I wouldn't be surprised if they in fact do have Deluxes coming in as well.

Am I the first??? London, Ontario rules! ;)I bought two (1 for me and 1 for the son) about an hour ago at EBgames. They only had two deluxes and three standard versions... but the Future Shops and Best Buys here in London will be putting them out on the shelves this afternoon sometime. I tallied between them there should be over 100 copies of each just for the three stores.duttonhttp://dutton.fsblogger.com/

The Source (formerly Radio Shack) has them listed on line at $79.99 Can., but they won't be in stock till Oct 10.I should check EB games in the Durham Ontario region. How much did you pay for them in London, Ont?Ron

Same on the west coast. I was in a Future Shop about an hour ago. The guy in the software dept opened every box that came in last night. No FSX. He told me to try later when their "afternoon" delivery comes in.Got home and phoned a Best Buy. I was told they expected it last nightbut it didn't show up....said to call later as they also get a late delivery.FaxCap

Great thanks! Looks like deluxe is the way to go for us up north. Now just wait for it to arrive and hope they have the right version in stock.

Finished teaching my class, postponed my officework until tomorrow morning, and left my office at Kwantlen University College early :-) just to see if FSX was anywhere to be found in Surrey. Success! I bought FSX Deluxe at FutureShop in Surrey (Scott Road and 76 Avenue).As of 1:45 p.m., the FSX Deluxe and FSX Standard packages were not on the shelf yet but were in storage boxes by the shelves. Picking a package out of the box, I asked one of the sales associates if I could buy FSX Deluxe in spite of the fact that it wasn't labelled, the answer to which was something about stocking the shelves later today but no problem buying now. Yeah!I would imagine that within the next hour or so, FSX will be on the shelves at FutureShops around Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.Now to install it....Joel @ CYVR (not far from CYNJ, really)

Forgot to mention the cost:$79.99 + PST/GST = $90.39. A bargain, really, considering all the hours of entertainment I'll enjoy over the next three or so years.Joel @ CYVR (not far from CYNJ, really)

I was in the FutureShop in Victoria about 1/2 hour ago and there was no sign of it. Thought about checking Walmart and EBGames while I was in the area but then thought that I wouldn't have time to install and play it until next week at the earliest, so what's the rush?

Thunder Bay, Ontario Future Shop. Got the deluxe version early this afternoon. Checked in the morning, they advised the truck was expected in mid-morning, to try back in the afternoon. Sure enough, salesperson advised they weren't sure if it was supposed to be held until later in the month, but the display said October 5th, when I picked it up.John Haley

Well, the EB Games in Ottawa all have the Standard Edition, BB and FS are still waiting for their shipment. If it was in London, Ontario, early this morning, and Toronto this evening, chances are Ottawa stores will have it (Deluxe Edition) by tomorrow afternoon.

Toured my local Best Buy, Future Shop, and EB Games in Winnipeg early this afternoon (or might have been late morning), nada.Went again 5-6pm to Best Buy, and there was the stock guy with a whole bunch of FSX copies on the cart, rearranging other games to make room for the new stuff. Don't think I was the first to do it, but I got it directly from the cart, before a single copy ever made it onto the shelf... :DToo bad, by the time I get enough stuff burned onto dvd's to make enough room for it, probably won't have time to try it out tonight.... :(

Bestbuy has the Deluxe at $79 with $10 gift card, FutureShop price matched to $69.I have a feeling its going to cost a lot more over the next few months to get this thing running a decent speeds ...

Looks like it's pretty widely distributed throughout Canada ... i picked up my deluxe copy last night at Future Shop in Windsor. Note Detroit folks ... come and get em ... there were a bunch of both Standard and Deluxe on the shelf ;)A little choppy on my machine so far ... but i can definitely see the potential. Man i was like a kid in a candy store ... you should have seen my face when i picked it up off the shelf .. :)Steve
