A few places are doing pre-orders. $15/disc for it at Infinite Discs, really not bad at all for MVP. http://infinitediscs.com/mvp-shock/
Justin at Community Discs has them for $15 and $1 flat rate shipping. Just saying.

You know as well as I do that it is impossible to keep people from posting useless **** in said thread tho.
It may be impossible to keep people from posting their useless opinions, but this ancient forum layout doesn't help. I find myself visiting the site less and less because sorting through 60 pages of speculation for an accurate review is impractical.

Probably just as useless to encourage the community to separate threads. I think its more practical to have an active user review system for the comments like the course review "helpful" vote has. But with a better search system.

Please disregard this post as its filled with hypocrisy.

There needs to be a way to make a thread that you can edit the OP to add links to separate posts that contain actual information.

Yes That's a great idea.

Maybe, there should be a "Useful Post" button by each post that gives a member karma for each useful post they make.

For example, i would get no karma for this worthless post.

Yeah... These types of forums are rough. Voting system is the way to go. But would a full change to the website be practical? I don't know much about webpage construction or whatever.

It would only be beneficial to retailers, manufacturers and pros needing to pimp products without muddied waters

We just need to be conscious of our thread titles. For example, instead of just calling this one "MVP Shock," we could use:

-MVP Shock Pre-release Speculation Thread
-MVP Shock Pre-release Review Thread (for the zjs, Mike Cs and discspeeds of the world)
-MVP Shock Mass Consumption Thread, for after the full release

Self-governing at its finest!
