The official date is 25 September 2012 and that is just perfect for me and my previous prediction of 18 September wasn’t too far out at all. Seems my logic was right at least.
My pre-order for the CE box is in thanks to shopto.net who after fantastic service with my Cata delivery, a day early despite the snow induced traffic problems across the UK compared to Amazon’s 4 weeks later delivery (yes seriously!) were my preferred choice despite a £5 saving. I did consider play.com too but they wanted the money upfront.
