plus theres a diference between the 'release' date and the date it actually started shipping. in order to be placed on the retail shelves on let say the 15th, it had to ship much earlier, (travel time from the manufacturer, time spent at the warehouse, travel time to the local store, time spent in the stores stock room, plus a possible embargo as far as the earliest date the product can be on the shelves) amazon doesn't have to deal with most of this, they just ship directly from a regional warehouse, or in some cases, have the manufacturer ship directly to you.
