Mine as well! I suppose this means they're shipping them a day early so they arrive on the release date? :)
That's usually how Amazon rolls.

If you preorder movies or games, they ship the Monday, the day before the release date, so you receive it on release day. It's called Release Date Delivery. ;)

Sometimes they screw up and don't classify things properly, as I've received Blu Rays that shipped ON release date, but so it goes.

According UPS, mine has arrived in this distribution hub and the status is "Out for Delivery"! Can't wait for this, this is my very first SNK Hardware!

Which brings me the question: Is this really an official SNK, Japanese product? Or is it a licensed, third party console, authorized by SNK? I thought SNK was bankrupt?

Thanks for clarification.

Looks like it! (maybe) A few Amazon orders for NeoGAF members got shipped. Mine's still on Shipping Soon, fingers crossed.

As far as I'm aware it's just licensed.

This is not official hardware as in "made by SNK".

It is "official" from the standpoint that it was licensed from SNK and manufactured by a 2nd party that then gave the distribution rights to a third party.

Awesome stickers on the side of that stick! Mine hasn't shipped from Amazon yet, unfortunately. Says release date of December 24.

Should get the console on Wednesday, by the looks of it. Still waiting on Target to ship my stick. Those who are already getting their sticks from Target are making me jealous.

Gamestop will stick to the street date. If you ordered w/ overnight, you'll get it Tuesday. If you ordered w/ standard shipping, it'll go out on Tuesday and show up... whenever.
Not true. This system does not have a street date... The manager at the store I go to said he will call me when it comes in. They are still going through today's shipment but he doesn't think they have it.

I preordered from Gamestop. Got a pending charge on my credit card this weekend for the system, but my order page still says Open. I'm sure it's set to go out tomorrow, though. I picked up an extra stick from Amazon and that shipped today. That should be here Wednesday. Basically, should have everything here by Thursday/Friday :) Just in time for the holiday break next week!

I ordered mine from Gamestop as well. Used gift cards. No pending charge on my credit card for the remainder, but I don't usually see those.

Usually Gamestop will ship the night before the release date if you pay for next day shipping (which I did). So I'm hoping it turns up tomorrow, but Wednesday is fine.

I think reviews already given have been mostly detailed enough though it is nice to have multiple perspectives. Most report the joysticks being good quality as well as the handheld but the dock being kind of flimsy and not too easy to close. (edit: first impressions post on destructiod reports no problems closing dock)

The firmware also seems to not be as full featured as most of us would like and unless I hear otherwise doesn't support any kind of saving. Also stuck on aes mode and region locked. The good news is that it seems to be a firmware limitation and they do plan on updating the firmware. Plus it will likely be hacked and have unibios put on it.

edit: this is just from info I got from following various posts and may be wrong.

Mine has been pre-ordered as a Xmas gift from 'Funstock'. As such, I'm not receiving any updates directly sooo... so any UK members here have any updates on this?

I'm not expecting it before Xmas, but I'll admit I'm expecting it in the window between the 27th Dec and 1st Jan!!
