Well, that explains why I haven't seen the damn thing yet. I don't know how accurate it is, but according to that page, there is only ONE kiosk in my entire county. And that one copy just happens to be at our Best Buy, which means I'm not going to bother. Their aisles can only accommodate one person walking through at a time and there is always a super long wait for the game demos for the old consoles. There's no way it's worth the hassle of dealing with cramped quarters, annoying kids, rude assholes, and employees that bug you every five minutes. Besides, I kinda wanted to wait until actually getting it home anyway; it's more exciting that way.
When Diablo III came out, the guys at my local Gamestop were chomping at the bit to sell my Collector's Edition to somebody else. It was sitting on the shelf on display behind the counter with my receipt taped to it, versus in a case or under a register.
When I asked them about it, they said, "Well, we weren't sure if you were going to come in and claim it." This was the day of release. I'm sorry if I'm just not cool enough to come to your midnight release, bro.
My advice: pick it up the day of, or at least call the GameStop and let them know you're coming the next day. Have them tape a note to it that says, "DO NOT SELL" or some such. I don't know. I feel like they're not going to try very hard to keep it there for you.
That sounds about right. Other stores will do it too, but GameStop seems especially bad about it. You can't even make a site-to-store order and trust that your game will be held long enough for you to drive over there.
