Pre-ordered mine the day after it was announce and the 1st day best buy officialy started pre order so I feel safe and I'm worried as hell at the same time D:
For people who are planning to go to target but can't go to at midnight but can later on don't worry much I waited out like around 8am and everyone was guaranteed one with a ticket and if they didn't get a ticket no problem they were just told to wait in line so they can get any that are leftover. Just trying to talk about my experience.
There's a difference between those of us who pre-ordered on BestBuy.com either with free shipping or as an in-store pickup... and those who went to Best Buy and pre-ordered in person.
From what all of use know about Best Buy, online pre-orders and store pre-orders should be completely separate, as BestBuy.com and Best Buy stores technically
operate as separate entities.
The only reason you can buy something at BestBuy.com and pick it up in store is BestBuy.com has access to Best Buy stores (mostly) real-time inventory.
So, when people say they were "the first" to pre-order at Best Buy, it's because they went in and pre-ordered at the store (I did that with an iPad 2 when they first were released). Those of us who pre-ordered at BestBuy.com have no clue, except for the email receipt we have confirming our preorder.
