ive never had a problem with release day delivery either, for a tuesday release they typically ship overnight. i know you have to order a bit in advance, if you try ordering the wednesday or thursday before release you wont get it on time.
I ordered 3+ months in advance both times, so there is obviously no prioritiy based on when you ordered.
The Best Buy Unboxed forums are filled with people ranting about botched delivery due to them just tossing it in UPS Ground and crossing their fingers or not shipoing until the morning of release. Each time Best Buy responds with their standard boilerplate copy and paste "due to vendor restrictions and shipping logistics, don't blame us." If they used UPS Next Day Air Saver on all of their items, they would all make it on release day. The 2 out of 9 that made it to me on time, those came Next Day Air Saver. The other 7 out of 9 that didn't make it, those either didn't ship until the morning of release or shipped the night before via UPS Ground.
Maybe it works for some of you, but just an FYI that YMMV.
