What if you have already freaked out? It wasn't much but people noticed.

Perhaps we should never take any notice of expected dates and then when they turn up its a nice surprise.

I ordered mine off Ebay in April I think...hope the guy I dealt with is solid. Anyone know how long an order will exist in Ebay before it totally exits system and Paypal will not pay you back? That's what sucks about paying upfront :-x .

yeeaahh... id never preorder anything off ebay. anyone correct me if im wrong, but i beleive you have one month after auctions end to report a problem or open a case. so if that time has lapsed and the thing hasnt even been released yet you could be SOL. that is of coarse if the seller is a d-bag.

I'm actually pleased about this. August is going to be horribly expensive.

Can't complain much, the delay is good for the wallet. Just hope Jack and Magnus don't come out within two months of one another. lol. That'll just be painful.
