Doesn't change the fact that they (specifically he) kept hyping it all through the day on the 3rd and then the 4th before finally just clamming up about it. And wouldn't you maybe run that program by the lawyers (and the retailers) before you announce it to the world at a live stream press event? I mean, I'm willing to cut people slack when appropriate, but that whole pre-order thing was bush league. Heck, they never even came out with an official comment about the fact that you can't pre-order it in the US, just complete silence as soon as things went tits-up.

well Roy did offer his email to those wanting to pre order in the usa by the 5th once it was realized that newegg/td couldn't do preorders. I took him up on it and can say there were positive results.

What was the result? Where will you get the card from? How much did you have to pay? Can you post any more details? First I've heard of the email thing.

Im in the same boat, they put me on some "special" waiting list, not sure exactly what its about, but we are still waiting to find out when we will be able to preorder. When i asked about the delay rumor last night by email (not twitter) the response was to "Please wait. Worth the wait...". That was from Roger Goh (Newegg).

At this point i don't even care, i just want to see the benchmarks and know how much the cards will cost and then allow me to preorder or ill purchase something else. I have even been tempted to just go with 280x because its already out and available.

Plus, launch =/= NDA expiration (review release) and when he was asked to clarify that NDA lift wasn't delayed, radio silence.

+1.

Way to make this thread really entertaining right off the bat.

You guys think the 290x will be available same day NDA is over?

Based off the track record of Tiger, I wold say the guy doesn't know what he is talking about and is just screwing with people (or dreaming).

If I had to guess as to which day it will release; Tuesday the 29th. That is the same day of the BF4 release....

Then again, if they released it on the 22nd, next Tuesday, it would allow BF4 edition owners to pre-load. Hmm....
