Well, I hoped for the best but really I'm not going to have to wait longer than anyone else. Can't buy it locally anyhow. The store near me actually said they would almost definitely not carry it, as due to the recession they aren't stocking high end gear.
They don't want anything that might sit on their shelf.
They obviously don't know what they are talking about... this is the greatest low end high quality release in years and it's going to fly off the shelf like crazy!!!
