After checking the status of my Gamestop pre-order of Burning Crusade Collector’s Edition—order placed on October 21th—this is what the pre-orders section at Gamestop says:
Due to system maintenance our order status system is temporarily unavailable. Please do not call our customer service center as they share the same system and do not have additional information. We apologize for the inconvenience; please check back later.
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade orders are shipping today, on schedule, out of our Louisville, Kentucky distribution center. If you placed an order before 2:00pm (cst) on Monday January 15, 2007, and have NOT received an email from us requesting additional payment processing information, your Burning Crusade order should ship today at the shipping service level you requested.
/tap … Medievaldragon taps his foot as he waits for Gamestop!
Woot! Gamestop’s system is back online. My Collector’s Edition was sent second day delivery and believe it or not it is already in my area. Just waiting for delivery. Awesome! Draiken also got his copy from Amazon today. Seems like two reliable pre-order stores for future Blizzard releases.
