Video game release dates

whats up with video game release dates lately? I tried buying Two Worlds for the 360 the day it was supposed to come out, but it was almost a week later before they had any in stores (not sold out, they didn't get them until then). Now I've been waiting for MONTHS to pick up NHL 08, which was supposed to come out today, and they are now saying that they were SHIPPED today, so it won't be in stores until at least thursday. I can see the odd games taking a few more days than expected, but these are the last two games I've tried buying and they were both later than I expected.

Usually big games will be shipped a week or so before release day and are told not to sell them. Smaller games will just come in whenever they come in. Probably has a lot to do with the fact that anyone can just go on the internet now and have the game shipped out release date directly to them.
Yes, that is a banana in my pocket.

Games usually ship to the stores on Tuesday, arrive for sale Wednesday.

Don't buy Two Worlds, get Oblivion GOTY.

9 times out of 10, a given release date from a publisher is the shipping date. Depending on where you live in relation to a warehouse for a given store, the actual in-store date won't be for another day or two. Big box stores like Best Buy will usually list the in-store date in ads, and a shipping date online (which may or may not be the same day). Only REALLY big releases (Bioshock, Halo, maybe Madden) will have an in-store date listed from the publisher since they tend to get them to stores a week or so early.
