Imo, target can be a great place to pick up special/limited editions, at least in my area. On 2 pre-orders at bestbuy (1 for marvel capcom 2 special edition, and the other for forza)...both time bestbuy
ed up and so I didn't get it from them. With the marvel vs capcom one, I went to target right after leaving my bestbuy (about 10:30 am) and was able to pick up a copy and noticed they had more for both systems. With forza, a couple days after it was released, i saw copies avaialble as well.
I asked my local bestbuy yesterday if they received their shipment yet, and was told they had received enough to fulfil all pre-orders plus would have extra to sale on release. So it will be entirely dependent on how many pre-orders your store has and whether or not if it is considered a low volume store. I know for me, on forza release day (october 11), the gaming supervisor made it a point to show me where I was on the list for forza as well as mw3, I was about 6 and at that time they had about 15 pre-orders for mw3....and my bestbuy is considered a low volume store.
