You are kidding, right? Bethesda said they would ship the games on the 20th. Please post screenshots if its true ASAP, or make a digipic of the box and content. THANKS a million in advance!

Must be the Special Chuck Norris Edition where you get to play as Chuck Norris and kill anyone in one roundhouse kick. :eek:

Heh, I think this is a joke. I've heard of games being released a little early, but it only went gold like a week or two ago... theres no way stores have it already. The release date is March 20th. 10 more days guys, 10 more days :p

Some stores have these annoying looks-like-the-real-game promo boxes, but obviously they donīt contain anything but air.

Yeah, like the Battlefield 2 ones that you could buy (as a preorder) to get the headset. I havent heard of any of these for Oblivion but if rflair isnt yanking our chain, this is probably what he saw.

Here is the Canadian link:

I also looked at availability at their downsview location in T.O. - none in stock. Of course, maybe rflair is talking about one of the many surrounding cities of toronto.

The only way you can tell if it was a REAL Oblivion game box is to hold the box against a strong light(the sun will do). If the box casts a shadow on the ground, then the game is fake. If the box doesn't cast a shadow at all, then its the real deal.

EDIT: By the way, if you add the game to your cart it comes up as a preorder.

t'was so good to be true :(

Whats the difference between the collectors and the standard? Are they both DVD?

Both are DVD. This is taken right from their site:

# Pocket Guide to the Empire - 112 page guide to every aspect of Tamriel, including it’s people, provinces, and much more!
# "Making of" Oblivion Documentary - DVD of a special behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the game.
# Septim Gold Coin - An authentic replicated Septim, the official currency of Tamriel.

Thats some pretty cool stuff (at least to me). Not bad at all for $10 :)

With Morrowind Collectors Edition I got a little pewter Ordinator (sort of a Dark Elf Knight), a big book of Morrowind concept art and a big fancy box. Bethesda actually makes their collectors editions worth collecting :)
