Whether they give priority to people who pre-order earlier is on a store by store basis, but from what I know of the corporate structure I'd bet 9 times out of 10 someone who pre-orders the day before release gets just as much priority as someone who pre-ordered a month ago.
So yeah, don't preorder from Gamestop. Really hoping Amazon comes through for me.
For the DS, and Wii I was waiting in line for at least 20-30 mins to make sure I was reasonable close to first in line. For the 3DS I got there and was like maybe 5-6th and I waited 2 hours for it. I never trust gamestop with any preorders.
I don't want to have to wait again. This time I want painless.
