I ordered both the Console and the LE game + Guide. I have a tracking # for something that weighs 1.3lbs. Those guides weigh several pounds.

Yeah thats what the other guy ordered as well. The N3DSXL weighs at around .7lbs so its box and the rest of the packaging should add up to that amount or so.

I don't think we'll know the actual weight until UPS has the item in their hand. Just a placeholder for now.

I could be wrong, but Best Buy does guarantee anything. Even their most expensive shipping lacks any kind of guarantee. If you're pre-ordering from Best Buy and aren't doing store pick up I'd be prepared to get things late.

They do. Everytime they have not arrived I call BB and they give me some sort of credit. I've had several games arrive on release date, so it's not like they don't have that option.

It depends on customer support and how much complaining you do....YMMV nonetheless. For one day shipping, unless it's terrible weather like the snow fall that happened a bit ago, I usually wont be too happy with late deliveries. You pay for it I mean...if it was free..eh whatever.

I bought it at gamestop so it was $11 for one day shipping. I wasn't given an option from the gamestop employee for a lower shipping rate even though there are more. She just told me it $11 for shipping. I wasn't thinking and went along with it knowing I have a better chance of receiving the box unharmed and I'm paying way less than getting scalped. Does anyone know if their one day shipping is suppose to come on launch day?

Guys, did any of you get a robo-call from GS yesterday? Apparently they said that a game would be available in the morning Friday. I wonder if it was for the 3DS or for my Monster Hunter?

I got a text saying its going to be available midnight and come to the store at 10 or so to finalize payment. That one was for my MH LE.

Looks like my GameStop pre order of Majoras Mask LE console is coming tomorrow. I did not receive confirmation from GameStop yet but UPS my choice says I have a package coming from GameStop tomorrow.

I got a text that my red 3DS will be available tomorrow at GS.

I'm getting to best buy at opening though to try and get one there first AAAAANND perhaps take a chance at the MM 3DS.

found out one of the employees there buys and sells stuff that's rare though so I bet he will get it if he's working

Just got a second notification for one at 1.30lbs. That is probably the system. So 1.10lbs should be the MM LE game.

Hoping amazon will put up more stock on the LE game. Anyone think they could go up today? Not really interested in the console.

MM N3DSXL from bestbuy hasn't shipped yet. Still processing.

 

MH4 N3DSXL from Gamestop hasn't shipped yet. Still in open order status. Payed with paypal.

 

What the heck is going on here?!?

 

My MM hardcover book shipped. My 2 32GB $10 miniSD cards from walmart shipped.

 

My consoles didn't. Argh!

Same here just now via usps. I have 1 day shipping and it's scheduled for tomorrow. I don't have the charge to my cc yet but this is good news. =)

Calling and complaining about delivery date is smart from a CAG stand point. Especially when you're flipping and trying to make a profit or make back your money since you almost always get a credit or partial refund. Its dickish bit its business.

Sweet, both shipped and set for tomorrow. My MM+Guide was 2 day but I guess they bumped it up

Yup, same thing for me. Thankfully I got UPS My Choice to tell me the tracking number! Stupid Gamestop never sent out any shipping notice.

It looks like it is the shipping label only that has been created.  Hopefully UPS actually picks them up today.

not surprised to hear that since it wasnt in the ad this week

 

perhaps any stock Best Buy was receiving was completely allocated to online preorders

Well, since my console isn't set to arrive for a week from Best Buy, I'll likely scoot over to Target on my lunch tomorrow. If, somehow, they have an MM system, I'll probably be an idiot and snag it.

LOL.

 

No. There will not be extra stock of MM LE game or Console (being sold at MSRP, of course).
