Thanks Bobby.

I looked at Bestprices' site and it appears they are sold out and not expecting to ship it any time soon. All prices were fairly close, though Bestprices was $29.10 (all the others were $29.99) and Buy.com was $26.99.

Here's the Resellerratings ratings:
Amazon: 7.31
Electronics Botique (aka EBWorld.com and EBGames.com): 8.61 but few ratings.
BestPrices.com: Not enough reviews to be valid, but all three of the reviews were positive.
Buy.com: 6.85

It looks like both Amazon and EBGames would be good bets.

BBB ratings:
Amazon: Satisfactory (complaint total not specified)
Electronics Botique: Satisfactory (one complaint, resolved)
BestPrices.com: No record available (may be owned by another company)
Buy.com: Several branches provided. One had an unsatisfactory record, but the rest were either unfiled or had satisfactory records. The final Buy.com location asked me to say how much I intended to spend on the product.. Answering $1, $29.99 and even $9999999.99 led to an error saying that there was no longer information available on the company. EBGames would probably be the best bet, followed by Amazon.com, and then Buy.com. Where did you get the information that BestPrices would have stock on the 18th? The page you linked to said it is out of stock and won't be available for over two weeks (well past Christmas.)

I'm sure there are errors in this post. Just tell me them and I'll correct 'em.

This item has not yet been released. You can reserve your copy by placing an order now, and it will ship after 12/18/2002.
So 12/18 is the best possible date, but with them it is hard to tell when it really arrives.

Ah, yes. Their definition of "not within two weeks" is a bit shady. ;P

So instead of buying it, people will be going off to see TTT? Oh well.

Okay, i admit it. I didn't follow all the hype here and have basically no idea about this new Jazz game (i don't care much about it, because i don't own any consoles and probably never will).
Just one question: does the game come out in North America only or is it available here in Europe either? I checked some major german onlinestores, but didn't found anything.
Wouldn't be completly unlikely, because this new Jazz game is the first without any connections to Europe (US programmers, US publisher, completely in contrast to all previous Jazz games).

Mixed messages. So far, the vendors listed have all been American, but they may very well ship to Europe.
