...to announce a release date for a game, only to have it come out THE NEXT DAY! Words cannot describe how angry I am right now. >: (

This topic doesn't make sense either.

Seeing your angry face is kinda funny when your avatar shows a smiley face.

Punch Out!! man! I went to every store in town, and not a one of them has it! Guess i'll just have to get Majora's Mask to bide my time until tomorrow... D'X

Out of experience, most games aren't available on the actual release date. Most stores tend to get them a day or two after.

Release date = / = Ship date.
The only places that my make exceptions are places like Wal-Mart and GameStop (over here: EB Games).

Oh, that. I get it. You, like so many before you, have confused the "Ship date" with the date the game is available to buy. Unless a game is street dated, you usually have to add one day to the announced day of a game. Punch-Out!! was not street dated, so it'll be on shelves tomorrow.

Unfortunately, it's never obvious to the consumer what is a "street date" what is a "ship date." I can sympathize with the frustration. I always check on Day 1 just in case.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

@KnucklesSonic8: That's really all we have over here (save for one Target and one Hastings).

@Adam: Yeah, I guess I have an unfair advantage that way because I work at Gamestop and have easy access to the listings. You can ask for release dates at Gamestop, though, and depending on the store you may get to look at a printed list. A game with be labeled "SD-insert date here" after the title if it's street-dated. Otherwise, it's best to add a day. If you don't get that kind of list, you may be able to get a helpful employee to tell you the date and whether it's street dated.

I pre-order my games online and always recieve them on the release date, occasionally the day before, maybe you should try that.
This is good

One day later? Lol. I'll have to import Klonoa because it's impossible to get it in Mexico otherwise, and who knows when Punch Out will be released around here. At least I got Brawl one week before the release date.
