Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 begins to appear in stores

Posted Tuesday, October 8, 2002 8:56 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, the sequel to one of the biggest selling PC games ever, has started to appear on store shelves in the Greater Cleveland area a week before its scheduled release. Target stores appear to have a few copies, and EB stores say they expect it this week.

You can order Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 from Amazon.

I'm up here in western michigan, stopped by the local target store and the woman there has them in stock....though she received an email today advising her of other target stores that prematurely released the game to the public. She was advised in the email that she(and other target stores) is NOT to release the game early and if stores had placed the game on the shelf, they are to remove them immediately. She said monday is their receiving day and that is why they got them yesterday. Stopped by Best Buy and they will be releasing them sunday, they have 68 on order that will arrive on thursady the guy said.

So it looks like a very few people have gotten a "sneak peak" at the game prematurely....lucky souls. ;)

I think I'll wait till my birthday in November. I'm a little short on spending money right now. After all, I didn't get the original RCT till it had been out for a year.

What do you bet the number of posts in the "general buzz" forum drops dramatically these next few days?

I guess I've made the big score then, because I'm happily playing it at work, er, I mean, I'm thinking about playing it when I get home. ;)

I've got to resist the urge to buy it! I'm probably gonna buy it for myself in December. I don't want it now because I won't get any work done if I have it! Man, that game looks sweet.

So Jeff, what do you think about RCT 2? Is it really what everyone expects it to be?

Well, Jeff IS still at work, so perhaps we should give him a chance to get home and write up a review ;)

If it was a corporate order, I'm sure it's off the shelves.
