I'm sorry, but this seems typical. Yes, the fanboys will flame me. It has been done for a while, but they hold back on allowing us to download (sorry but the EE is not them giving us something extra special, but instead giving what they should ahve the first time). They say the 16th, but of course no stores will have it then. BestBuy says release 23rd, so by making us wait is not any benefit. I was going to buy but I might now now. I will download, however that will take forever since 1.4 GB and thousands trying to get will equal an entire weekend trying to download. Basically, it is another example of a developer not really thinking through the whole things, looking at the big picture. I bought their game for $50 and have not played it much since I wanted the full thing, and now have to wait again. Was planning on buying EE but not sure now because I see the company adding agrevation for no reason.
