On the flipside, if you buy from Best Buy and live in Vancouver they have a warehouse in Richmond, so you'll always get "day 1 delivery."

Any time anyone cites a business as having fast delivery or slow delivery, it demonstrates just how bought in people are to corporate marketing. Unless you're a private courier like Amazon, it's up to Canada Post (or UPS or whomever) and is 100% not to said company's fault or credit.
I think most RFD'ers know the difference between the delivery time and when the item ships and are rightfully blaming the store. I think the case your describing is not common on RFD, we're experienced complainers around here.

Not exactly - every thread you see people bashing Walmart/BB/Amazon etc. and praising the other. When in reality, the deciding factor on the delivery date is where you're located in Canada.

You just proved my point. Unless they own a private courier, the store isn't to blame (or praise), it's Canada Post / UPS / another carrier. As colavs19 reiterated, with rare exceptions, delivery is influenced solely by your distance from the shipment's origin. "Free shipping" is standard regular parcel mail no matter who you're buying from; you can look up shipping times on Canada Post's website and they'll also tell you it's based on distance. Assuming they ship on release day, the corporation has nothing to do with when your parcel arrives.

Umm, actually...
Our friend works at corporate in Mississauga, and Walmart does have to blame with shipping. For example I recently had to find a filler product (shampoo) for an online order, and the generic shampoo that was available in store took a whole week longer to arrive than the other, more specialized items did. It is Walmart that chooses the most cut-rate shipping company, and they were getting a lot of complaints because of this. Our friend shared this with us as we asked why some things from Walmart took so damned long to ship.

Straight from the horse's mouth.
c'mon get happy!

Is it possible to preorder the games in-store honouring the online prices?

I have had awful luck with years-out preorders with Walmart.ca due to their awful payment method change policy, super antiquated. Last year I had my wallet stolen and the Walmart.ca online support were 100% useless.

this has probably been asked as well, but are there any digital pre-order sales on the microsoft store or anywhere? or only physical copies during e3?

Sorry I didn't word it well, I'm talking about when it leaves, when the store says OK it's been shipped. I think that most of these types of complaints on RFD are people who understand that difference.
