I thought u should know... If u live in the LA area, a small local shop named Gameplay on Venice broke street date and is currently selling them. When I was there last, I saw stacks of them in the back. There were a huge line of people waiting for them, fyi.

Awesome deal. In for 1.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.


I am a pussy :-(

This will happen with any small chain store or mom and pop store especially. It happened with GH3, Halo, and Rockband. If you want it now, go to any local mom and pop store that sells video games and see if they will give it to you.

Often they will charge a small premium to have it a few days early.

Big chains won't break it because Nintendo of America wrath is pretty scary.

Eh, I don't want to drive 40 minutes over just to have a it a few days early. Gotta save on gas money here in L.A.

BTW, they're not charging a premium, and usually small stores get shafted by the giants like Gamestop...

Hahaha, that's 5 minutes away from my office. What's this about people lined up for it, though? Has word spread through the Culver City ghetto grapevine already?

SPLASH!

They are already on ebay with some ending in an hour or so, so they have been on there for atleast 23 hours.
