I realise nobody ever officially said it would be the 15th, but this means that all my CE buddies will either be way ahead or will have to wait. I also find 48 hours for the preorder to be a bit fecking paltry, in my not particularly humble opinion.
It’s not the end of the world, but it’s pretty MEH.
