Thanks to our man Kevin from the Garden City EBgames for taking the time to confirm why a Polo Park rep would make such a silly mistake. The pre-order madness induced by a previous blog post of mine was all a ruse. You see, the trick to asking about upcoming releases for titles worthy of being called national treasures is to NOT mention to the sales reps that you can see the item already listed on the EBgames.com site. If history has taught me anything, it’s that they just might agree with you without looking at the computer they have in front of them.
The EBgames.com site operates separately from the EBgames.ca site.. while the release dates for titles in North America are usually reliable throughout both systems, (Canada and US operating independently) the pre-orders are not linked. So we can still place our orders through the site and have it shipped to us here but not order it locally.. which also renders my old post irrelevant, having nothing to do with Winnipeg.. but everything to do with Metal Gear Solid… and at the end of the day, I think that’s what really counts.
