Alot of places will get it later than the official ship date. i remember when GHTP and GHTP Maxd came out you could order it at gamestop (or your local game store) and get it right away. but Best Buy, and all the big box stores(wal-mart, shopko and others like that) got it later. some were weeks and others were months after. so if anyone is planning on getting it there. good luck. they may have it on the 18th or 19th but kinda doubt it. also if you didnt pre order it there is a chance gamestop wont have it eather on the 19th. i know my local gamestop only got GHTP Maxd for PS2 for the people who pre-ordered it because it wasnt a big name game and didnt want to take the chance on it just sitting on the shelf forever.
