on the old board before it was wiped. The only current dev posts from the old board are in the News forum. The devs ALWAYS said it was the 8th previously, but then a dev corrected that and said it was only the sixth for the US. It's still the 8th for EU as they don't ship until the 5th.
The 8th for EU? If it gets released on a friday, processed by the saturday, no post on a sunday, shipped on the 8th...is that not an awful short grace period? Presumably if you were in the head start you've preordered...which means you've got a code coming. Can we not have a little bit more time?
(But yeah, seriously, if folks are in the head start they've preordered right?)
