So I hear we can get this game as soon as stores get their shipment

I REALLY hope my local GameStop will let me buy the game when they get it. I haven't been more hyped for a game in a long time.

It happened with LBP Vita. Don't know where you heard that from but it's likely untrue

All I heard was that Sony doesn't care if their first-party titles break the street date.

With LBP Vita, Tarsier Studios gave GameStop the go ahead. Sony/Superbot probably won't.

I doubt the devs have any say in that matter. The publishers are probably the ones who gave the OK, and in this case it's Sony.

No. This is not the case (I work at Gamestop). It's "Street Dated" in our system meaning we can NOT under any circumstance sell that game before then without paying a reallllllly big fee. Sorry

LBP vita was a very unique case. No one really knows why they did it but PSASBR is Sonys biggest release this year so dont count on it

I'll double check tomorrow, and if for whatever reason they removed the Street Date expect it in the Thursday or Friday before hand.

Only a few days early? IIRC LBP was sold like 2 weeks early at Gamestop.
