I checked my email today. BestBuy sent me an email telling me that the Sims 3 had arrived, was packed and ready to ship. I checked the order status and it has shipped, so I'm assuming it will get here on the day of the release!!! I'm so excited…unforunatly, my hardrive just got sent in on the 29th, and probably won't be repaired and sent back by the time The Sims 3 gets here…we'll see what happens.
Regardless, I won't mind staring at the box for a few days. That's what I did with The Sims 2, because my computer was too old to play it, and I waited about 3 months for the new computer…and I just stared at the Sims 2 box, almost everyday….so I don't mind doing that with The Sims 3 for a few days. It just makes it that much better once I actually get to play it…
