Wish Best Buy didn't suck so much. I still don't even know if my preorder is valid, let alone if it will be release day delivery. Will probably just end up going to Walmart and grabbing a CE unless my order ships out the day before. Living in IA, i'm sure they'll have them.

I did not receive such an email.
Double-check the links and make sure it's not a phishing scam. I got an email confirming release-day delivery for a movie I didn't order. Links in the email led elsewhere from the Amazon site.

Good luck. I wouldn't hold out for Walmart, honestly. There will be some guy that buys all 5 copies they receive, I can almost guarantee it with the demand of this.

I didn't click the anything, but I went to my amazon and I indeed have free same release day delivery on it... Amazon is just awesome like that. So if you didn't get the email I'd go double check your order and see if you can select it

I just checked and I still just have standard, 2 day, 1 day options, but I have always had 1 day selected. No option for release date delivery.

Odd... do you have Amazon Prime? Maybe it's for Prime members only. I can't be the only one who got this, it makes no sense.

Why would you even go to a retailer for the product?

Just buy it online and download it. Retailers are utterly outdated and unnecessary.

Yeah, if you're not a prime member, you're off their list now.
In Germany they actualy announced the shipping date for the NORMAL version of the game beeing May 18th 2012.
UNLESS of course you buy a special delivery in which case they'll ship in on the 12th.

I know you guys with CE editions can't do what I did, so I hope it works out for you!
(I had to cancel on amazon and buy a digital one)

Because you can only get the CE in a retail store. Its not avialable for download.

Perhaps try reading the thread before making a fool of yourself.

Funny, I did buy a copy from Blizzard as well because I got sent to Japan and i didnt want to wait for my CE to get shipped over seas. So Yes, I did that too Mr. Troll. Fact is, Amazon is awesome and whenever possible I buy everything from them. No tax, free 2-day shipping on everything, and I can watch a lot of decent television with prime.

Your just now doing this? This has been available to do since they confirmed the release date on Amazon. Did mine that day.

This is very odd, it's almost like they are staggering the message out then. I literally checked my order 2 days ago and I did not have the option for Release day shipping. I got the email today though. Very strange.

Is it FREE release day shipping?

Gamestop usually offers it for $.99, but only on select titles for some reason. (Must be via a deal with certain publishers)

I haven't seen anything about a release day discount for D3 on Gamestop though - the only option I saw was overnight shipping for $9.99 - but that was back in October 2011.

1. ISP download limits in some countries and through certain providers
2. No delivery coverage in your area (rare, but possible if you live out in East Bumblef-youknowwhat-)
