Mate, you got it wrong. Santa is supposed to get YOU presents, not the other way around.

When I see threads like this one pop up asking for info about GMT's plans, I always wonder why the people who are interested don't simply subscribe to the GMT newsletter. It's an easy way to keep up on all of that, and unlike with some publishers it doesn't result in a non-stop series of spam emails, just regular comprehensive updates on everything GMT has in the works.

Perfect example; theflax knows what's happening because he got the email.

I read the gmt newsletter every month. I read it last month that it will be in November, I know they wanted to test their new system. I even went on the GMT website before I asked hoping to see an updated newsletter for this month. Maybe I should've been more specific, and asked about any NEW information on an actual date. I'm so sorry that I gave you the impression that I'm just a bum who is too lazy to actually look up any info on my own. Thanks for the help.

I read that P500 games to the UK were shipping via an in-country distributor, does anyone know if they do that for direct orders as well?

Someone asked the same thing on Consimworld the other day but the question was lost among an ongoing debate over GMT's p500 shipping. There has been no response there yet.

It's happening via secondchancegames.com, but it seems a bit up in the air still:

Gene just posted on CSW that the November update is coming out this Friday. Perhaps there will be sale info then.

I hope not. The last thing my bank account needs is a GMT sale. My shelf on the other hand will always welcome more games.

It's not you, you posed a great question.

Via Consimworld....

GMT Fall Sale postponed: Will very likely be a Winter sale in January 2017.

(cue wails of lament, hand wringing, pulling hair out)




(also: don't shoot the messenger)

I'm actually okay with this.

I still got stuff in shrink that I have t played yet, it won't cut into my holiday spending, plus a January sale is a nice thing to help offset Seasonal Affective Disorder...a bright spot in an otherwise dreary month.

Im ok with the delay into the new year, I have a couple of games I'd like to grab, but we're encroaching on xmas spending so the delay will make getting new games less painful. My pre-xmas personal spending will now be aimed at brewing equipment to build the stockpile for the new games in Feb!

They've said in January, but I can't remember where I've read it.

EDIT - Found it: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/GMT-Update--November-18--...

Quote:
Fall Sale Moved to January. So the only really important functional news that this delay brings is that there is really NO WAY we can do a yearly mass sale with our existing systems, so we're going to have to wait on that until the new systems go live. So at this point it looks like it will be the "January Sale" this year instead of the "October Sale. " Don't worry, though; we'll still make sure there are great discounts and that our P500 customers are taken care of with their 50% off for past P500 orders.

Adding to that, this is from the latest update, sent this past Tuesday:

Quote:
Work continues on our new systems, but we're still at least a month away, in my judgement. We're still working on the custom programming for all the P500 functionality, as well as getting the back-end shipping details all implemented. We've made progress, but not as quickly as we'd hoped. I'll get you more up-to-date info in the January update.
