Default Who hasn't Pre-Ordered to play on the 14th?

So who hasn't fallen in to the purchase of the Pre-Order digital DL? I haven't thought for a sec that everything hasn't gone exactly to plan yet with Crysis. SP Demo delayed, a day, O but if you pre-order you can play it when you were planning. There wasn't anyway I was passing it up. No way I can pass up playing the full version 2 days ahead of the shelf release either. I wonder how much they will save on all the digital DL's, there's ganna be allot. Who wants to bet EA downloader will go on the fritz on the 14th .
So how many of you are actually holding out till the 16th for a box? You know when all the shots start rolling in your ganna kick yourself for not pre-ordering. This is the first I've pre-ordered in years but I’ll still pick up a hard copy later just to have it.

Well EA said that it may actually appear in stores before the 16th and it doesn't sound like they are going to force stores to wait to sell it until the 16th... But who knows.

Nov. 16th is a friday, never seen a game ship on a friday, Im guessing it's coming out the tues before or after Nov. 16th, regardless, I can wait. More than enough gaming to keep me happy and most importantly, I need the box and manual to show off my purchase - the biggest downfall to virtual purchases...no cool case to show off next to the rig while you play.

The launch day is the 16th. Being such a huge title I doubt EA would let the rules slide and let it out earlier.

Actually I think it was Cevat from Crytek who said it could be in stores earlier than the 16th and he didn't act like they will hold it until then. To me it sounds like it should be shipping on the 14th or 15th and hopefully in stores by the 16th, but may arrive earlier. For a while I think gamestop was showing 14th as the ship date.

Me. Getting it retail on the 16th. No digital downloads here, just Steam ones. And Crysis isn't on Steam...

I'll be getting a hard copy of Crysis. There's no way I'm downloading a game like that lol.

I agree, normally there would be no way I would DL a game like this but I figured I've got the pre-order why not try it. The only reason I got it was to have the SP demo early. If there is one little hitch and my game playing is delayed in any way it's off to the store. I'll bet the box will be in stores on the 15th, being a Thur, unless it's a very controlled release and they actually manage to hold it back till the 16th. I'll bet there will be a few lucky people that get their hands on the box on the 14th. Everyone that Pre-Ordered with a digital DL will pre-load and unlock sometime on the 14th. At least I hope that's how it goes. I'll buy the box later either way.
