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)


Joel Murray @ CYVR (actually, somewhere between CYNJ and CZBB, but quite close to CSK8)

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?
