Throwing a little credit where credit is due, here's a pat on the back for Amazon.com for offering release date delivery for the not-released-soon-enough-as-it-is Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Once I found out the true size of the limited edition Slimer statuette/figurine, I decided to jump into the river of slime and order the special Slimer Edition of the game and "settled" for next-day delivery. Resolved to my fate of having to one extra day to play the game, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an e-mail from Amazon explaining that... well, read it for yourself:
We are now able to offer Release-Date Delivery for this video game. This special delivery option is available to you for no additional charge and has been automatically applied to your order. Your copy of Ghostbusters: The Video Game will arrive on Tuesday, June 16th.
We realize that many of our customers are huge Ghostbusters fans, and we're happy to offer Release-Date Delivery to get this title to you even faster.
So, thanks for that, Amazon. Consider me pleased.
