Heres an update the Gold 2pack is in stores that had preorders for it, but alas the standalone ToA expansion will only be available from tomorrow due to shipping probs from Koch Media who distribute the game...

If any Game store trys not to sell you the game 2morrow ask them to contact Either Simon Reynolds or Lucy Whitaker in the buying dept for auth to sell it


Hope this helps

Cheers :cheers:

Anyone else find Koch media funny, or is it just the immature side of me showing through

I very much doubt they are in the business of using tactics.from what I know the Game shops here get a delivery around midday,so I don't think they are lying to anyone.

I went to my local GAME yesterday and the guy hadn't even heard of ToA, SI, or Daoc. They had no copies of any of the 3 games in and haven't had for like 6 months. He had no idea when ToA was out, and it wasn't on there "to be released" list.

I think I'll wait till friday.

I've had the same news as fruitcake... the local GAME store said they'll have it in stock later and will sell today. Looks like ToA zones will be busy tonight :D

to my knowledge the friday release dates in the UK are nothing to do with UK retail law.

(afaik, plz correct me if I am wrong but...)

...this is a general "agreement" between publishers releasing in the UK to release on friday for the game charts, similar to how music is released on mondays for the music charts.

if the publishers authorise the game to be released prematurely the distributors can do so if they please, GAME did this for SI and it sounds like they are doing it for ToA if they have it in stock too.

the best thing to do is to head down to your local game IN PERSON (phone is usless) - check if they have ToA expansion in stock, and inform them to phone head office (or the buying department with names above) to confirm the release date has been moved forward. If the assistant refuses to do this ask to speak to their supervisor or the manager of the store. they dont often get people going into their stores talking about phoning head office or their buying department so they are normally pretty shocked, but it does work if you are persistant and dont get stroppy with them.

You may just try getting them to check their e-mail as well.I can't really see why my local game received an e-mail allowing them to sell today and not other game stores,I would have thought they would send CC to all stores.

Well just phoned 3 of my local Games in Newcastle upon Tyne 2 of them where arseholes tbh, no time to speak to me. I gave them the game title and reply was oh yes heard of that not sure when we getting any of those in. I asked if they would check and the said i would have to phone back after delivery. tossers!!!!

Anyway the 3rd store was more fruitful they got 9 in stock this morning and i was lucky enough to get my hands on 2 of em.

Just rang the GAME store in Birmingham pallisades. They got a grand total of 2 copies in and sold them to someone who stood waiting whilst they opened the delivery - so my preordering it with them was a waste of time... He said he hopes to get 10 more copies in tomorrow. He suggested I try GAME in the bull ring.

Tried ringing there and they said they had received none in their delivery.

Just spoke to GAME in Nottingham - they have copies, but only enough for pre-orders.

Good thing I pre-ordered then :p
