Sorry to bump this thread. The deal is still alive though, so I hope nobody gets pissed about it.
Now, I noticed they're not offering release date delivery on this. Does anyone know when I should expect the game to show up if I chose overnight shipping? I haven't ordered a new release from Amazon in quite some time, so I'd like to know what to expect.
Games have usually arrived on their release date in my case if overnight has been selected, so I think you'll get it on day 1 with this option as well.
I've also contacted Amazon regarding the "Release-date Delivery" and recieved this as a response:
"Hello from Amazon.com.
I'm sorry to learn that you are unable to place the order using Release-Date Delivery shipping option.
I've checked the product detail page of this item "Madden NFL 10" on Amazon.com, and it appears the item is not currently eligible for Release-Date Delivery shipping option.
We only offer the Release-Date Delivery option when we know we can get the item from our suppliers in time to meet our delivery promise to you. It is possible that this item will become eligible as the release date gets closer and we've confirmed our inventory.
At this time, I can only suggest that you check back on Amazon.com at a later time."
I've responded with a link to their "Release-date delivery" sub-category, so they can hopefully figure this all out. I'll let you all know if I have any luck so you can follow-up with them if needed.
