Went to get battlefield 2 which has been out 2 days now, they still havn't bloody got it. :ass: :fu: :argh: I tell ya this country is ****e for pc related stuff. Try getting any decent hardware offline.
I even phoned up and was told the store had thie item but it wasn't on display and it wasn't in the store room. :thumbdwn: :mad:

A big bloody Joke! anyone else have trobuble getting the latest games from high street shops??

Bought mine from http://shop.game.net/ Got it on day of release.

Going to real shops is too much effort ;)

I bought it the day before it was set to release here in Sweden acctually..
But, if its any comfort to you, it feels as if I might aswell should have waited a month to get it, so they could patch it a bit (mainly that damn server browser) and some more Ranked servers could show up (all are full, all of the time, atleast those with decent ping from where I am), and so ASE and other such tools would get support for it (just incase they drag their legs on that Server Browser).. both Xfire and ASE shows the IP of the server your pals are on, but neither allows you to launch and join from the tool.. need pen and paper to write down IPs since you cant Paste ingame (CTRL+V)

Its still fun, when you play it... problem is to get in and play...
The retail version has also crashed on me a few times, which the Demo never did..

Got mine from tesco the minute it became friday morning, the benefit of living close to a 24 hour store with a small selection of current pc games.

I was born in Portmouth, England if we are thinking of the same place. I moved here when I was 4 though... :(
