The usual process is that retailers buy stock on credit then pay the publishers back when they sold enough copies. However it is well known that GAME are having financial difficulties at the moment, so companies like EA and Nintendo are demanding payments for their games upfront and in full because they don't trust GAME to pay them back, but they are not in a financial position to do this so just won't be able to stock the game.

This is some pretty big news. Is there an article that explains whats gone on with GAME etc? Or is it still unknown? I've got a ton of points saved up at GAME, would be pretty lame if the chain collapses. Although I'd obviously spend them all first.
Think of them as the Greece of retailers.

Not necessarily. It really depends in my experience. In some cases, they dispatch the game so it arrives on release day (regardless of delivery option) or the super saver is just extra quick or it arrives a day or two after release day.

You get items on release day with super saver delivery, right?
In support of this, they do state (in respect of standard edition which I assume applies to collector edition too):
I've received games on release day
more times than not with super saver though.
Want to receive this the day it comes out?
Select First Class at checkout.
