    I would have to go after work so guess I'll have to have it delivered, I do know my UPS delivery guy though, last time he came to the house and I was out he remembered where I worked and brought it to me at work! that's customer service for you :thumbsup:

    I am thinking of doing the same!!!!!!!

    checking it out at 12am, however, I am pretty tired been working all weekend and stayed up late on Thurs/Fri...

    However, will have a peep at midnight to see if there is an option for collection at the store otherwise I will be extremely upset :unsure:

    Again, in my experience, in the US they nail the release day even if it's a saturday. On rare occasions for software, it's arrived the day before!

    In the UK it's been a lot worse. Generally stuff has tended to arrive either on the day as long as it's a weekday or a couple of days later with no real indication of when. (the 27" imac was far more trackable than most stuff IVe ordered)

    So whilst there's hope for sure, unless they claim very clearly "you'll receive on may 28th" I would plan for a three/four day window.

    Will they deliver to an address that your card isn't registered to?

    yeah me too. I think they send it out on the right day but they use some stupid cheap delivery company which takes ages and unlike the US, they dont have a priority shipping option

    well only you know how many movies and how much music you have.

    Most people/places I've seen are saying that the 32GB is the star buy. Not too little, not too much
