My gamestop just called me to confirm I will be there to pick it up. They are opening at 10 instead of 11 so thats good.

Is it just me, or has this been a hell of a year in terms of video games and the like selling out and there being a chase to get them? All three portal guns, KH: DDD collectors edition, Persona 4 Solid Gold, Halo 4 limited edition, Wii U, Wii U Pro Controller.

It's been a friggin battle sometimes

On thread topic of preorders: I got a text today from GS saying my console and Mario are ready. Nothing about the pro controller though.

So Gamestop's second attempt at processing my online order also failed again due to their address verification system. The guy i spoke to was confused considering we had my name/address exactly as the bank does (down to the zip code extension).

So in order to clear this up I ran to a GS and bought a gift card for the $70 that I owed on the system. Now that has been applied hopefully I will recieve a shipment notification soon.

Fingers crossed!.... again

If they called you, i can say for certainty that they were short. They only do that if they have a screw up or a shortage and are hoping someone cancels.

I used to have to make these calls when i worked there, trying to talk people out of picking up their collectors editions or whatever when corporate screwed up the stock.

I got a text from Gamestop saying my pre-order will be ready tomorrow morning. My GS opens at 10, but I'll be there around 9:30 just to be safe.

The game guy at Best buy told me that too, I guess it's one of those string bags but still it might be a nice gift to give to a little kid or something

anyone have any spare deluxe pre-orders in the los angeles area? trying to decide if I want to brave TRU tomorrow morning. I'm thinking i'll swing by and check the line, if there is none, or only a couple people, i'll jump in. If it's too long, i'll drive over to an often desolate KMart and try my luck there.

I've been looping it for the past hour. I'm going to sleep to this and wake up tomorrow and probably crash through the WalMart Layaway line because my body is ready.

You’ve got to be kidding me. I’ve been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It’s just common sense.

Blah, I was hoping to get my console early, but no go. The same gal who swore up and down that they'd be doing a midnight release has now informed me that I have to wait until tomorrow. So, I guess I don't need the gun anymore. Although...it will be during normal store hours, so maybe I should still take it.


Is WM's site to store hours the same as layaway?

You can check the store locator on their web site. It varies from store to store...at one store in my area, they close at the same time. At another, layaway closes earlier. Also, I'm not sure if this is the case at all stores, but Site To Store is handled at the photo counter near Customer Service.

Lol ... why would it be a fake review? Honestly guys, when was the last time that a console launch had high quality 3rd party games ... ZombiU probably is crap that none of us will be thinking of a year from now ... let's be real

Debating whether or not to camp out. There are four people outside target, with 10 consoles available. The.old lady said she would stay out with me, but damn is it cold out. Do I really want one this bad to stay in the cold for 12 hours?
