Australia here, EB games had it in today. Big W didn't but I pricematched EB games to their 69.83 price . The guy went back to check so I'm guessing they still make a profit from that price.

Box is cool, it's got a holographic peel off card for my viewing pleasure and a magnetic front cover (???) to keep the flap closed. It's installing now and needs just over 9GB.

I know everyone just wants to play but has anyone tested this on both XP and Vista? The beta still runs significantly better for me in Vista x64, and this game seems to use OpenAL so its looking like a good game to have Vista for.

Oh, and I got an email from game.co.uk saying the order is being processed so that I'll hopefully have it by release day. I think thats the 23rd, so... w00t.

If they can process the order and get the game from the UK to my porch in 3 days I'll be very impressed.

Sigh, I rang up my EB today and he said 'yes its in stock to get'... then I went into the store, and he says he has to make a call to the manager, so he does, then he comes back saying 'sorry, cant give them out today, come back tomorrow, for the trouble I'll give you $10 more off'.

According to Gamespot there are problems in Vista... not sure since the Beta ran fine for me.

Also, sadly my rig is under construction Damn. ETA for some Stalker action, next week
