    I bought my pc version on June 29th in BC when it was shipped to all the stores on the 28. Pretty fast service for it, but the mac version might take a couple days.

    Apparently there are few BC people here. I bought my G4 at Simply Computing on Broadway. The place I work at is friends with the people that run MacStation they have a few stores but I couldn't find the one I was looking for. CompuCanada downtown on Georgia has a Mac Store within a Store thingee. They had Alpha Centauri when Simply did not (the day I picked up my G4). I don't mind buying software from them as they carry more games then Simply but their staff isn't always the most knowledgable about Macs hence why I bought my G4 from Simply. I may swing by CompuSmart after work and hassel them I've held off phoning Simply Computing as I have no easy way to pick it up until Monday.

    I just called Simply Computing they wimped out said they had it on order but wouldn't give me an ETA. I'd say at least Monday knowing how things work. Since it is already in Texas, maybe they pressed them down South.

    I buy all my mac stuff at macstation in Burnaby. They're staff is great, really knoledgable. Anywho, I wouldn't trust anything to do with a mac to future shop employees. They don't know jack about macs, or pcs!
    You'd think they found their employees in a canning plant.

    So did anyone find Diablo 2 in BC yet. I was in CompuCanada or whatever they are called now and they didn't have it. Burnaby isn't one of my usual haunts but their is a MacStation on Pacific though I've yet to be able to find it.

    I may journey forth again on my lunch break if it's not raining and see if I can pick it up down town. If it makes it to Burnaby it will surely make it to the civilized world, and North Ontario. ;-)

    Still nothing. I'm told that there's a huge mac back-order so the stores have no idea when they're getting it.

    Oh ya, if you live in canada don't bother buying from Outpost.com, here's why
    game: 49.95
    shipping: 18.75
    total american 70.00$
    total canadian 100.00$
    Duty fee: 5.00$
    PST: 7.00$
    GST: 7.00$

    The final cost of D2 from outpost.com for someone in BC would cost 120.00$ canadian. That's obscene.

    Went to CompuSmart or I believe CompuCanada now, after waiting several minutes the Mac guy ended his personal phone call and this is what he said (the rest of the staff, all five of them never asked me if I wanted help, wonder why I didn't buy my computer there...)

    Anyway Diablo II on Mac has made it to Vancouver. I however missed out as did pretty much everyone as the four copies they got in never made it to the shelve, one went to a pre-order and staff might have taken the rest... One could have been mine as I was in Monday but didn't bother to actually hassel a sales person. Oh well I have no time to play due to work anyway.

    But the game has made it to the Lower Mainland just in very limited quantities, 36 more copies are on order. One of which now has my name on it. Should have it by tomorrow (maybe).
