    Put an end to "OMFG I WANT IT NOW" threads?

    Okay, can't we all just stfu and accept the fact?

    Here's how it is, Atari announced the RELEASE DATE, not the delivery date of the game at every individual retailer. It is not Atari's job, nor should it be expected of them to give an exact date for each retailer pertaining to the arrival of the game. When a game is released, the game ships out from the supplier to the retail location, an online one or an actual store. Shipping takes time and with as many copies of ut2k4 to be shipped, things get very expensive. They shouldn't be expected to rush things along, they've (Epic, DE, and Atari collectively) been working very hard on ut2k4, can't you just give them a break? :bulb:

    I just had to get that out. Everyone just be patient, you'll have your ut2k4 eventually. :up:

    Then, maybe they should revise their choice of words in their press releases. Since they stated in the press release that the game would be in store worldwide the 15th March.

          Read the title of that thread. Its not really a big deal but frustrating that March 15th is a worthless date.

            Maybe they should revise the release, but they still have no (or very little) control over what happens once the games leave their sight.

              You do know where you are right? Which forums you're posting in? Asking the people that take the time to write those threads to calm down and wait is completely futile. For better results, just ask the sun not to rise tomorrow.

                    It's not a worthless date. Many stores do have it today. Hell, Israel had it last night. Atari cannot be held responsible when retailers refuse to put it on the shelves until (in the case of Best Buy) Tuesday. Many stores only stock on Tuesdays, regardless of whether or not they have the game in their storeroom.

                        I don't know if you can call that an official press release.

                        (From UnrealTournament.com): "Unreal Tournament 2004 is expected to be available worldwide on March 15"

                        That may be a misleading statement, but when they just said it would be avalible, nothing about being in store or at your door.
