Early last week we reported
about the differences between the U.S.A. and Canada in the street dates for VEI's upcoming release of In Search of... - The Complete Collection
. At the time the schedules showed that the 19-DVD set would be out November 27th in the States
, but that Canadians would get it much earlier than that, on October 23rd (a week from today). Over this past weekend, however, Amazon.ca (the e-tailer's Canada branch) sent out word to pre-order customers that the title was pushed back, and was now estimated to ship on November 20th in Canada
...just a week before the U.S. street date.
Today we've received confirmation directly from the studio that this isn't an error on Amazon's part, and that the title is indeed delayed. No reason for the change was provided, but there doesn't appear to be any change to the previously announced contents, either. Nor is there any change to the release date in the States, for that matter. So we assume they just need the extra time to get these to stores. Stay tuned, and we'll let you know if we find out anything further. Our thanks to the many readers who took the time to e-mail us about this!
