    Businesses can get bulk collection arranged for Sundays ... however, even next day postage would take 'til Tuesday, as the bulk collection items would not go into distribution 'til Monday.


    Though, saying that, I ordered something, a few months ago, on a Sunday afternoon, and I paid for next day delivery, and somehow it actually arrived the next day, on the Monday ... and that was Royal Mail Parcel Force.

    Go check GameFAQs, GameSpot UK, loads of other game forums ... people posting everywhere about it.

    Side-Note : Had to be someone in the U.S. ... a place that wont have the game for weeks ... asking for proof, didn't it? lol [​IMG]

    i'm guessing it won't be dumped by thursday or friday as the scene is very slow anyway, and it will be another few hours before it appears on usenet too, i would be very surprised if it was dumped very early.

    Many PAL Wii releases have dumped early, in recent weeks ... I believe the only reason this hasn't been dumped yet ... and there are people who already have it ... I am not one of them, sadly ... is one of security.

    GAME's security over their copies has been tighter than normal, plus, some people get all scared about being busted, if they release a major title too early.

    I dont think it will get dumped as fast as people are saying.

    I reckon it will be dumped in a week or so as no-one has actually recieved their copy yet.

    Some people ... not people who pre-ordered it ... have it, already.

    I am not one of them, but I know who some of them are.

    They are just not willing to share, yet.

    If you pre-ordered from GAME ... or most online sellers in the UK ... after the 4th April, they cannot guarantee you will get it for launch day.

    Not the only decent game out this week ... it's the US release of Baroque, tomorrow, also ... I love rogue-likes ... it was only last week that I finished Chocobo's Dungeon on the Wii.
