It's been offered for pre-order since I was a freshman in college, nothing new here.

Uhh, dude, this isnt news and it isnt even funny anymore, and it sure as hell isnt a ROLF's or an OMGBBQ or LEET HAXOR or anything else.

Most every place you can buy software has been doing it since around the summer 2000.
This isnt a new concept.

"No, you cannot pre-order the game. If you see some online store saying "We are taking pre-orders", they're just trying to get your money (they usually also make up their own supposed "insider release date info", too). There is no release date set, we are not taking pre-orders for the game. End of story."

Did you check out the other Links on the site (review)?

There's another (game info) one you come accross from the main page linking in Gamespot.

Looks to me like someone at BB is having a little fun.

It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum and I'm all out of gum

edit: oh and they better use Jon St. John or the game will be doomed to failure ... if it ever gets released

Cudos for 3D for sticking to their guns, this is how it should be for every game out there. NO release date unless it goes gold, NO Pre-Ordering unless the publisher guarantees it, and NO awards unless it's out.

Unlike Team Fortress 2 that won E3 Game of the year in 1999

Another company that doesn't know how to keep their mouth shut is Egosoft, obviously they haven't learned their lesson. They just announced X³ Terran Conflict, scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2008. NONE of their games were EVER released on time, so don't hold your breath and expect this one sometime in mid to late 09 and of course full of bugs for the first few months.
