Just got back from mine, they said they arent selling till the 3rd, however he said their boss mumbled something about working "late" on the 2nd so he said maybe monday. But they were told to not sell it early even if they get it in by the gamestop hq.

My EB has it as well, said the same thing: Monday at 7:00 p.m. I'm going there straight after work and just waiting.

I also had to practice some self restraint. I actually SAW the freaking boxes. I have actually fully paid my pre-order, and jumping over the counter and making a mad dash for it was looking like a pretty good option, but I wussed out. It was right there, like 5 feet away from me. And with only a little pasty skinny high school kid standing in my way. *Sigh*

If I had that chance I'd have offered him an extra $50 to sell it to me early. Man I'd love to be playing it all weekend.

Well, I offered him money. I've paid the balance on the preorder so technically one of those damn boxes is mine anyway. I actually offered to let him take my credit card as collateral. No dice. Oh well, Monday's only 2 days away, I'll live. It'll be a kinda half-alive unlife until then, but my vital signs will be OK.

I think my EB has it also.. they called me and I was like AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH going crazy. Then answered the phone and they were like "Did you preorder Doom 3 for the PC" "YES!" I say. Then he crushes me when he says "You will be able to pick it up (I almost crapped myself at this point but then...) Monday at 7:00. :(

Well the two more days of waiting isn't that bad... its just the fact that I thought it was THE call that I could come to pick it up :(.

Where did you go (@topic creator)? Carmack said that although the street date is August 5, retailers can sell them once they get it... It may not be the publisher's word, but enough for most...
