GameStop Lists Transformer Prime Release Date as December 9 (Updated: Now November 28?)

The Asus Transformer Prime was announced back on the 8th as the world’s first NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core tablet. The specs and price blew our minds, but we were left without a release date. Asus assured the media that some sort of launch party would be going down in early December though. According to GameStop, “early December” means December 9. And we aren’t talking about a pre-order date – their site says as plain as day that the “release date” for this beast of a tablet is 12/9/2011.

Update: And minutes later, they have adjusted it to show November 28 as the release date. Mmm K. 

Go get your pre-order on. Shipments go out on the 9th.

Cheers Jason!

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    FYI, Gamestop also dropped the price of the regular Transformer WITH the gaming bundle to $339.00.  I think that’s a pretty good deal and just ordered one for my son.  I’ll also get the “Power-Up” points!!

    I pre-ordered one from Bestbuy.com this afternoon, but since there was a issue with my billing address a customer service rep called me to correct the issue.  I asked when it would ship and he stated tomorrow and I would get it on Friday.  I don’t know if this is true, but I hope so!

    • Jjjjj

      Hope you don’t end up getting the original transformer.

        Based on the comment he got from the BB rep, either he’s gonna be pissed or doesn’t know what the hell he is buying. Either way I would be mad if I payed for an old trasformer all the while markII is due in a couple weeks

  • Lmrojas

    Eh where us the windows 8 version coming?

  • wiz

    I’m confused…I can buy the tablet with a “free” controller for $540 (plus tax), or get just the tablet from Amazon for $499 (no tax)?

  • Anonymous

    Does that controller work with the Xoom?? If so I am getting one, just made a lot of games much better including the n64 emulator I have.

    and the nexus will be the 2nd us device with ICS lol.

  • Okay so if we pre ordered yesterday, will it ship on the 28th (or 9th) or will it arrive? Im desperate over here!!!! 

  • Lizz.0

    Makes me wonder if they are fibbing on the release date so they get more sales…

  • hfoster52

    I guess we can get our ICS fix before the GNex is out.

  • Barbacoa

    Sooo do i need to point out as a former manager of Game Stop, that these dates are arbitrary at best.

  • Anonymous

    says it ships with dead space – which I don’t see in the market – is it a tablet only app or 3rd party?

  • Jl92880

    Look Below – 11/28 – I believe these release 

    dates are all speculation.

  • I’d love to know if I can use that controller with my Logitech Revue.

      the gamestop description says it’s shipping with 3.2
