They ship before release date. Normally on new stuff they ship Monday and most zones get it Wednesday on the release date. BO told me that because of the holiday back logs/no shipping thanksgiving/Friday that cases won't ship until Tuesday - meaning a Thursday delivery for most places, but I believe Houdini is in the area that wouldn't get them until Friday (maybe later) hence why he paid for overnight delivery (I assume).
