    Endless Ocean (Forever Blue in Japan) is slated for an October 29 release. By now I would think it would be on the Gamestop or Amazon website. I've not found it anywhere online and Gamestop doesn't even have it in their computer system...

    Anyone know who will be carrying this so I can preorder it?

    I believe it's been delayed.

    And why pre-order? It's not like most games are hard to find in stores.

    Ya, I don't think alot of people are gonna get it
    so a pre order wouldn't be necessary.

    Try to google it or find the wikipedia page.

    There was a recall for Forever Blue in Japan, but I don't think it resulted in a NA delay. I think it's just going to be a hard to find title, since it's such an obscure game.

    I want to pre-order it for precisely the reason mentioned above -- scarcity. It's not like it is going to be such a hot seller that it will sell out... It's just that it doesn't appear on the Gamestop computer systems at all or on Amazon's website... I'm wondering if either of them are even going to stock it... Preordering it will insure that I at least get it -- even if I have to mail order it...

    pre-order .....game stop onley get 2 copies of a game if no one pre-orders and then you know you have a copy and the $5 you put down to pre-order go to the purchase of the game your not losing anything by pre-ordering

    Yeah, thanks, but the point of my thread is that gamestop doesn't even have it in their computer system which means I CAN'T preorder it. I'm looking for a company that DOES have it listed for preorder so I can just pay for the damn thing and not have to wander about looking for it when it comes out.

    Both IGN and Gamespot recently updated their release list and they still have it at October 29...

    atleast until after the holiday season when online wii games become more commonplace.

    This game was delayed a couple days back. It was pushed into 08. I was pretty excited for this one too. The delay kind of sucks...

    Yeah, at least that's what the link says. And that's coming from nintendo's press room.

    IF the game was compatible with the headset, so that you could communicate with your friend while playing, I'd get it. But since it doesn't allow that, then I probably won't get it. Swimming mute with a friend must feel a little awkward...

    Of course it wouldn't be realistic being able to talk, but not being able to talk, would mean both would go in complete separate directions, as neither wants to be lead by the other, ad, well, yeah. And you can't make hand gestures as you would be able to in real life.

    actually i think most scuba divers do have a means to communicate when they are underwater. there's a lot of technology that goes into that kind of equipment.

    Well, In a standard diver suit, there's no communication device. With a tube in your mouth, not easy to talk.

    Delayed until Q1 08. That blows. I'm certain it is because they don't want the game to be buried by MP3, SSBB, and SMG this holiday so they have moved it forward to a 'drier' period of games so it gets *some* attention. Oh well. I'll just have to get BWII instead.
