My friend still hasn't received an e-mail from Capcom about it shipping. Hopefully it will be here soon, I'd like to see it in action on his HDTV.

I'm assuming it's still available since it's still on the capcom site.

I called Capcom USA this afternoon and they said that my order was still on hold until the warehouse gets the shipment, which he said would be sometime this week.

He also said that since its shipping straight from the warehouse he didn't know if they will be sending an email to notify of shipping.

Also, as far as I know they've already sold out of this second shipment. Though a third shipment is being considered, you have to email steelbattalion@capcom.com to order it. It's a first come first serve deal.

I can't wait to get mine.

ebgames.com says claims they will be getting more in the middle of Feb. Gamestop in Dallas is taking reservation for Feb 10 arrival. Who knows if either are right.

I went ahead and emailed Capcom. It's worth a shot.

Credit card was charged on 2/7/03. I called Capcom today (2/10/03) and the guy said it looked like it was either shipping today or tomorrow. Of course he was just looking at a screen, capcoms customer support is seperate from their warehouse.

I got a copy from ebgames.com last Friday. It's fun, but there is a very steep learning curve.

Just curious, but is the game really worth the $200 you pay?

I would think that if it is worth the money and is available in limited quantities that people would hold on to it instead of selling it on ebay.

$220?

You know you could buy 11 greatest hits games with all that money.

I can't ever see paying THAT much for a game.
