    I am curious if anyone knows when stores will begin to receive this game, and when it will first ship. Brawl should have to be shipped way in advance, so the game can reach all the many stores. Does anyone know when we can expect this game to be leaked? Wasn't SMG leaked about 2 weeks in advance? It is officially less than 2 weeks for Brawl now. Any thoughts?

    SMG was leaked so fast because Nintendo send "demos" to the stores which actually were the full game.

    They will never do this with brawl.. and the shops get the games about 2-3 days before the release.

    Please don't ask when games will be dumped, we have no idea.

    Seriously these type of posts should be deleted.

    You can expect Brawl to be "leaked" the day after it is released in stores.

    Actually, the purpose of this thread was two-fold. Most people seemed to just answer the obvious question, but I really wanted to know when stores started receiving the game. I am asking this in the hopes of finding someone who has inside knowledge, of when stores first receive the game. I always wondered if some stores received the game a week in advance, while others received it the day before. That would make sense, since the amount of games is so immense, separating the delivery times seems to be crucial.

    Fellow, Mc DUI, and Hooya, please actually read the post before post nonsense or say the post should be deleted. If you have nothing to add, just go post somewhere else. Posts that serve no purpose should be deleted.

    1337, You make a good point, but I wonder if the shipments for Brawl will be so much larger than the shipments for SMG that delivering the game way before the release date will be necessary.

    Honestly, if you have nothing to add, just ignore this thread. I am so tired of posting things and having n00bs just run their mouths.

    lol if you want this top secret "insider information" and you call the people of site you look at newbs.

    then what information are you trying to gather, why here, and whos the newbie fucktard now?

    also this forum probily wouldnt be the best way to go about getting your information 007, but good luck.

    Heh, Brawl will be dumped whenever a release group gets a hold of the game.

    Just wait, the worst thing that happens is you wait until March 10th to get the damn game.

    Who cares. I've been playing the Jap version for a month and that's all that really matters.

    Wow. I am amazed almost all the posts here have been either rude or just dick-ish. Someone here works for gamestop, or gameforce, or wallmart. Someone would probably know how long games like this are received in advance.

    The fact is, honest information and honest discussion is just drowned out by people spouting "who cares".

    This thread has been utterly ruined. Please promptly delete.

    Chillax bro don't take it personally. We often get people with less than 10 posts here asking some stupid questions then never returning. There's also a rule about asking when games will be dumped I believe.

    As for when stores will receive the game - it depends. Some games sit in the back room for a week or two before release, some arrive the day of release and some arrive late.

    Pretty sure talking about when you will be able to pirate software isnt honest discussion, but even if it was, this thread was utterly ruined when you didint read the rules before posting.


    And if some arrogant prick came in, in a demanding, bitchy way crying for information, and insulting community members when he doesnt hear what he wants, if that prick feels he needs to be treated intelligently and not like another random internet fuckwad. Well, my only advice is please go attempt to breed with a electricity socket and do the human race a favour :\

    I saw the title & opened this thread, ready to flame the poster for being an idiot, but I see it's already been taken care of. Thanks everyone!

    I thought the same thing! I think the original poster assumed "leak" to mean, 'when can we expect this game to be released early'. People are talking about Sears selling early, ebay listings, and places like walmart already having this game in the back rooms. I don't feel like flaming is honestly very nice. But what do I know, I don't post hundreds of times on one forum and then claim everyone else is a "noob" and deserves to be flamed.

    Quoting from the official website:

    Due to delays in the completion of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, we’ve had to change the release date of the game to Sunday, March 9th.

    I deeply apologize to the people who have looked forward to playing the game for so long and ask that you hold on just a little longer. Thank you for your patience.

    I guess we'll just have to wait.

    I went in to Walmart today to nose around and ask some questions about Brawl, maybe talk up a younger employee for some inside info or whatever..But it was a snooty older lady working who just snapped 'no!' before the word 'Brawl' had even finished rolling off my tongue.

    Anyways, a couple weeks before this there were two Brawl cases in the display case with the other Wii titles, and one was open and it was*empty*. The instruction book was visible, but it contained no DVD. I'm guessing Ninty just sent out some empty cases for display purposes or something..

    They do however have an extremely sweet SSBB 'coming soon' poster on the side of an end-display with all the characters on it...I'm thinking about scooping that up for my game room, lol
