I have 2 friends/co-workers who live within 5 minutes of the Walmart I'm going to and they have cars so I'll make them authorized pick up persons. On launch day they will pick up the console for me and I will get it from them at work the next day. You're crazy to think I'm getting on the bus with it. ;)


Yeah at first I thought you were. Your plan sounds so much better and safer,lol.

That's what in going to do as well. They should have in front of the store correct? I'm going to the 24 hour location so hopefully everything works out. I have to be at work by 10:45 :(

Just called the closest Walmart, layaway is closed and electronics hasn't heard a thing. I'll head down there at 8 tomorrow, hopefully someone will know what the hell is going on.
Damn, going to be up until 2am with Toonami too, going to be a rough day.

Layaway area.


Thanks. When I stopped in earlier no one (at customer service, layaway or electronics knew anything). The layaway girl did tell me they close from 9pm to 9 am though. So, if the preoders are happening only at layaway then there shouldn't be any activity at my store until 9 ish tomorrow.

See, thing is though, layaway areas in ALL walmarts usually close at 9PM, so you just have to hope that the person you're asking knows what they're talking about.
