Where is Rainbow Six: Vegas?

Online retailers are either still showing the release date as June 26th, which was previously expected, or delayed until Thursday, Friday or even Saturday.

According to Gamestop's website, the game "usually ships within 24 hours," which generally points to the game being in stock at many stores. However, our local Gamestop in central New York says Rainbow Six: Vegas for PS3 won't be in stores until June 30th, at the earliest. Message boards across this crazy worldwide web are lighting up with tales of Gamestop employees reiterating similar tales, that the shipping date shows June 29th with expected in-store availability for June 30th.

How about other retailers? Best Buy online shows the game coming in tomorrow (June 27th). As is par for the course, their in-store clerks can only confirm its current absence in store shelves, without any further idea as to when the game will come in. Mega-retailer Amazon doesn't fare much better, showing its release date as June 26th with an 11-13 day shipping time frame. Yeesh. Sans an Ubisoft developer connection, it doesn't appear likely that gamers will be able to experience the PS3 reiteration of Rainbow Six: Vegas until later this week. Weekend releases are practically unheard of, but we at least hope this one proves true. Waiting another full week for some hot online Rainbow action? Too much. Now where's that copy of The Darkness ...

Thanks to all who sent this in.

1. The EB Games in Meadville, PA told me today that it would be in tomorrow. Not sure if they were incorrect or not just thought I would throw my log onto the fire. If EB doesn't get it tomorrow I will be calling other stores, especially Best Buy.

2. Went to GameStop earlier and the same exact thing happened to me. I'm going to call them up later tonight to see if they got it because they had all the other games that came out today (Darkness, Transformers, Harry Potter etc.) in there.

Damn you GameStop, if it wasn't for the 20% I saved by pre-ordering the game there I would have been checking every store that carries PS3 games.

5. I already got my copy, sorry guys. I’m crazy to be at home, to play it. Next time reserve your copy dudes. Why this site always so negative them.

6. God I hate gamestop. There is no need for them to try and push the entire pre-order catalog on me. The guy at my store tried to tell me how awesome Dyntasy Warriors: Gundam will be and how I need to preorder it for about 20 minutes. For the love of god... DW:Gundam!?!?!?!?!?!

7. @5

I did pre-order and when I went into the store they told me possibly tomorrow it would arrive.

8. "According to Gamestop's website, the game "usually ships within 24 hours," which generally points to the game being in stock at many stores."
From my understanding, that typically means that the title has shipped (both to stores and from the website), so unless a store happens to be close to a distribution center, they'll get their copies the next day.

At least in NY here, games tend to come out on Wednesdays 95% of the time, assuming it isn't a budget-priced title (Raw Danger, Red Star, etc.) or has a street date attached to it (Nintendo likes Sunday launches for whatever reason).

11. I live in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, and i went to 2 different EB Games locations and the story i got was that the release date was pushed back to June 28th. I also went to BestBuy, Walmart, Future Shop and The Real Canadian Superstore and couldn't find both Rainbow Six Vegas or The Darkness. I did end up getting the last copy of The Darkness at one of the EB Games locations.I'm glad that i bought a PS3, but the wait for some of these games is killing me.

13. Liongames dude told me it has to do with release date and street date. Apparently the game is sent to distribution centers on the 26th and should arrive at the stores by the 29th.
