If airfreight from Amsterdam airport it arrives next day in Usa
One day then in Customs
And maybe 2-3 days to deliver
So shipping air from Holland on Monday you have game delivered Friday latest
Go ocean and it be at least 3-4 weeks
Cost almost the same for air via ocean.
Quoted from sd_tom:
It really all depends on how quickly they can start getting games out. The 1 a week situation it seems like we are in now is going to #1 take forever and #2 encourage more people to do air freight which further slows getting to a full container.
They really need to hit 10 a week, so a full 40 game container once a month before it will feel like anything but torture to wait for container.
I plan on container shipping, because the price is so steep.. it erases the cost advantage of my preorder. That's a psychological wall I can't rationalize just yet.. but we'll see how long it takes to get to #17.
