It's still possible that it isn't the 10:30 deadline yet in their time zone (say, if they're in MST, PST, Alaska, or Hawaii). So I suppose we'll see.

It'll happen. It always happens. People will always risk their jobs and freedom jus to leak the games early. It's just a matter of time

I'm also expecting it to happen at some point, but there may be fewer people willing to take the risk when it's a less hyped game with drastically less new content. I'm expecting either late this week (thurs/fri) or early next week.

Huh maybe we won't get any leaks this time. I want to say it's unlikely we won't get anything...but maybe it will be a few days before instead of a few weeks this time.
We will. iirc the leaker from last year, Lurantis, got a review copy and was fired from their job for it.

Well I'm in California and its officially been 10:30 everywhere in the world except for Alaska and Hawaii so...

Gamestop did get the games already though. I work with a friend who works PT for Gamestop and he confirmed they got the shipment for it last night.

If there's one thing I've learned about watching pre-releases of major games, it's that regardless of what the game has to offer (or lackthereof for certain examples) fans will always want their few minutes of fame. There's something about being the first person to reveal the game's content to the world that drives a lot of people to take the risk, and I don't think USUM will be any different.

With that said, I think we should start keeping a lookout starting tomorrow since it's usually around that time stores or loose-lipped fans start to slip.
