This must be a price mistake as the MSRP for this game is 49.99.....

Mods' note: Some CAGs that have ordered this game have ended up with Crush for the PSP. Others have still have a pre-order for Alien Syndrome for the Wii. May be due to a SKU # mistake on Buy.com's part. See thread for details.

EB's price says it's $49.99, so I guess this might be a price mistake. :-s

Oddly, on the Buy.com page, J&R.com has it for $29.99, as does Amazon.com. Though, when you go to Amazon.com, it comes up as $49.99 and on J&R.com, there's nothing listed.

Might have to jump into one, just in case it's not priced correctly.

Videos look fun. Co-op is a big plus. I wish they pushed the hardware little bit more though. I think I'll bite, another fun summer game.

I cancelled my order after watching the dev diary vid on IGN...guy looks like a f**ktard, and sounds like he doesn't know anything about video games.

Graphics may be passable, but animations are not. Game is poop. I only first ordered because it is a nice deal...but after then reading up on the game...nuh-uh.

Ordered for $18.99. Hopefully it turns out to be fun. If not, I'll just cancel when the reviews roll in.

I checked on my order this morning, and it was "Sent To Warehouse". :-s

I sent them an email about it, because it makes no sense to have it go to the warehouse if it doesn't ship until 07/31. The "official" date listed in the item is still 05/31, which is probably why it was sent off to the warehouse. The 07/31 date is listed in the item description, not the release date field.

Should be interesting to see how this comes about. :-s

Buy.com does not have a warehouse... maybe that means your order was just sent to the company that is going to 'drop ship' the game when it comes out...

That much I know, though what doesn't make sense is why they'd change the order into that state, when they have a pre-order state just for this situation. :-s

It seems like they mistakenly picked up Crush prices from JR and Amazon as Alien Syndrome prices (somehow), and priced their preorders competitively.
Let me show you them.

Unless they botched the name and we all have been ordering Crush. (which looks sorta cool in its own right)

Yikes, that could be Crush. I emailed buy.com about status mix up, and they said the date was indeed 7/31 and they would ship once they got it.

The status of your order shows Sent to Warehouse and will be shipped
out as soon as it is available. The expected release date is 07/31/07.
An e-mail will be sent when the item is shipped.
Let me show you them.

Great, mine shipped too. The only problem is that since it was a pre-order I had it shipped to the place I'm moving to next weekend. Oh well, I'll have to watch the tracking and head over there.

Mine still shows as "Sent To Warehouse", so hopefully, they'll not ship me a game I won't want because they screwed up.

This also brings up the question of it being a pre-order, why're they charging my card for it? :-s

Not exactly sure how they would have gotten stock over a month in advance of the release date. Guess we'll just have to wait and see when the package comes in.
