Acceleration out today or tomorrow?

Recommended Posts

Stores are showing in stock tomorrow? Is this out today or tomorrow guys? I was all psyched to have it today as the availability date says today and Aces said today, but stores are all showing tomorrow. What's the info here??________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

Supposed to be today but I checked around yesterday ... no one had any stock ready to be sold today.Ace Combat 6 for the xbox seems to have been pushed back a couple days.

I mean, it's on amazon now to order, but I can't find it on walmart.com or anything.edit again... I just called Walmart and Target and they don't have it nor do they know anything about it....

I just called Gamestop and talked to my friend, she said the street date is tomorrow (Starts selling tomorrow). It ships today.

I just returned from visiting two Targets, two Wal-Marts, and one BestBuy in the Woodbridge VA area and none are in stock and none of the people working in the computer gaming areas knows anything about its release. A couple sales persons had no idea what a "Flight Simulator X" is so I'm in trouble.... I'll order it on the Internet.Jim

Not cool Aces. Not cool at all getting us all hyped up on a release date on the 23rd when that was a ship date. 2 thumbs down for Phil on this one.________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

>I just called Gamestop and talked to my friend, she said the>street date is tomorrow (Starts selling tomorrow). It ships>today.Well, the way these things work in the US is: Tuesday is new-release day for music and movies and games.If today is a street date, then the product would have arrived last week. Now much of this may have changed - although my casual observations tell me that tuesday is still new release day - but I'd say that choosing the 23rd was in keeping with this tuesday-is-release-day pattern.It does seem like games have fuzzier release slots.

See my reply in the other thread, this is not in our control so saying anything like this is offbase.I'll repeat it and elaborate. There are roughly 80,000 employees at MS. Aces is roughly 120 people. Thats 0.15%. From a revenue perspective the sizings are similar. We are a small fish in a very large pond. Aces make product, we do not control manufacturing, marketing, selling, distribution, pricing, etc. I do not even know anyone besides the 1st level marketing contact in any of those areas. So "blaming" us for 1 day is ludicrous. Think about what is going on in the world. Be greatful that all you have to worry you is waiting 1 extra day for a game. Take a deep breath. Really.

Especially around the NCAA/Madden times of year.

EB Games Canada now has 30th as the date...FS and BB have some on order but no firm store date, they have not shipped to stores.Looks like at least a week up here...Ace Combat is missing today as well, but its expected this week, so if you have a 360 it will you busy until Acc arrives.

And Ms does control the day things are released regardless of what you say. Our local bestbuy had a shelf full of fsx in stock for almost a week before it was released to the masses and would not sell it because MS controls the release date. They get in trouble for selling anything before a street date. The street date was supposed to be the 23rd which is why i am mad. Call me mad, call me a nutt, whatever. I have been looking more forward to this pack than any other game coming out, including crysis. You and the other people on here making me feel like a jerk should be glad that i am so anxious to buy your product instead of making me feel like a lunatic. Sheesh. Pardon me for loving and being passionate about fsx and aviation.________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

You are right, although at times difficult, I should always be very happy as an IT manager, when people are clamoring for my services, if that was not so, I could be without a job :(I also understand the people that work at ACE, especially Taylor, responding (communicating) and trying to keep the costumer happy is an art with a whole lot of patience, a whole lot of repeating, and a whole lot of understanding, but hey when you commit yourself to a job of costumer communication and service, that

I went to two FFs and a Best Buy and nobody knew what I was talking about. Quite excited but now a downer. Oh well. I'll wait until next week.

This whole release is a bit of a debacle. Nobody knew what i was talking about when i was asking for it and nobody seems to carry it or know if they plan to. There seems to have been a bit of confusion on this board as to when it was coming out which is pretty uncharacteristic.________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

I'm a Beta tester. I have no idea why but I felt compelled to check availability here in Abbotsford, BC. The only hit I got was at Future Shop. Their stock database showed 18 copies in transit. The clerk said it would come by courier and ventured a guess they could arrive yet today but tomorrow is more likely.Edit: it was noon (PDT) I checked. If you phone a Future Shop store, ask them to check stock #95039 -- $29.99.CalCYXX

>Nobody knew what i was talking about when i was asking for it and nobody seems to carry it or know if they plan to.If it ain't Halo (*or a similarly hyped platform game), chances are the sales drones won't have a clue. Nobody in my area knew what Flight Simulator X was last year, I don't expect them to know what Acceleration is this year. I'm on my own in this hunt. Remember the day when Electronics Boutique was 90% PC games and 10% console? Take a look now, and that too will play into helping answer your concerns. If you're seeking blame, put it on your local store for not providing their salesforces with any semblance of education as to what they are carrying.-Greg

By now, I think we all get it -- you're unhappy. You seem intent on blaming someone for your disappointment. Will that fix the problem...or give you some sort of satisfaction? If so, I suggest you contact MS Marketing. They're the ones who control the show, not Phil Taylor or anyone else at ACES.But, take heart. The extra day of waiting is well worth it, I can assure you.CalCYXX

My Sunday news paper BestBuy insert clearly shows that Acceleration will be "Available on Wed 10/24 before 2PM!Don't think it's that big of a deal. Jeez, if people can't wait 1 or 2 days without ranting, they really need to get a life!As Phil said: there are more pressing things in this world to worry about!Pete S.

A date is a date and it has been broken. Fault isn't particularly important.
