We received the following message from a source that wishes to remain anonymous:
I feel I should inform you that the game “DragonBall GT: Final Bout” was in fact not shipped yesterday. Our received shipments in my own store and all local stores did not contain the expected copies. I personally had a copy pre-ordered and mine never came in. We’re hoping to receive shipments by the end of the week or early next week, but New Release titles rarely come any days other than Tuesday or Wednesday. The message we received via e-mail is that the company themselves never shipped out the packages. Sorry.
Also, if this only applies to stores in my local area (PA, NJ, NY, etc.) then I apologize for providing you with false information, but to the best of my knowledge, the game was not shipped from Atari.
My copy has indeed not yet shipped, so there is likely something to this story — hope that is helpful for those of you who have not gotten your items shipped yet either and are looking for some type of explanation.
