Glad to hear it shipped for some people.

Does anyone have their copy NOT entered "Shipping Soon" status? Mine is still struck in Not Yet Shipped.

Tenjin, I suggest you call amazon and complain about it.

My Final Fantasy was in limbo status for 5 days after the release while it's obvious that they had it in stock. I called amazon three times over the week and finally had it shipped. In the first 2 calls they didn't seen any problem with my order and said it should ship soon. Of course it didn't happen. Worst, my order dollars were all messed up (I overpaid it by over $16). I bitched the third time and the order specialist zeroed out the numbers in the order. Half a day later it went to "Shipping Soon" status.

Seems like amazon had TONS of software glitches from charging customer full amount (sans coupon), coupon/GC disappearing and orders stuck in limbo

eau, yeah, finally decided to contact them about Dumbo a couple days ago. They gave me the apologetic speech and that there was a dealy in the shipping process but would upgrade my shipping to 2nd day. Oh oh.

Just got a shipping notice today. Expected something to go awry in my totals and it did but in my favor. Balance of $2.78 was supposed to be charged to my CC but instead, the order was noted as paid in full by GCs (more than I had in the account) plus I found an additional $1.10 was now added to my GC account). Still waiting for Shrek to ship though.

I am still waiting for "Shrek", which I pre-ordered on 8/15! I sent an email to ask why, and I got a pre-formatted email with BS in two days. That was so disapointing, and the site still clearly states that the item is available and may be shipped within 24 hrs. How?!

I have seen so many copies in the stores, and price is as low as $16.99. I have always been shopping with Amazon and other sites, and tried to be one of those Internet business supporters. I am getting a bad feeling about Amazon now. Last time I got my shipment from them was late for more than 10 days. Amazon is getting behind and sh!tty, not only the price, but the shipment as well.

I truely believe this is the typical feeling that many Amazon shoppers are getting now - and it is dangrous.

My copy arrived today.. When ever I have concerns about amazon orders I call them (email never satisfies my need to know now). The CSRs are great, if they dont supply a satisfactory anwser I ask for an order specialist..
