I called earlier and got three new games from the deal put on hold without a single issue. I just asked if they had them in stock and then if they could put one of each on hold for me until noon tomorrow.

This is cheating, and no fun. Where is the thrill of the hunt? That to me is part of being a CAG.

Nothing there of interest for me. Surprised this thread is getting so much hype.

Now if Riddick or Red Faction were on there I would be all over this!

Bah, got all things of interest off of Amazon's DotD.

How's Wii Music? Also, no love for PC?

This is rather tame if you ask me. I've seen and heard people hording 10+ copies of games during some deals and then gloating about eBay-ing them later.

1. I wasn't complaining about hoarding, I was complaining about calling and getting them to hold games.
2. I was (mostly) joking

I almost regret getting Wii Sports Resort now. The sword fighting is excellent but now I don't have the money for 2.5 awesome games and my arms hurt.

Riddick would be epic win.
As for SFIV, it does look interesting, but I have plenty of other fighters to get through first. I might try to snag it cheaper once I get my Tekken 6 arcade stick. :)

no one has really confirmed if this is in store only. hopefully this will start at midnight (3.am eastern here) It will save me from getting up at 9:30 on my day off to get to the gamestop that opens at 10.

And it seems like someone over at SD has taken the list and said when it's starting. So good luck to everyone here in finding what you want! Luckily there's 5+ GS within 15 mins of me xD

I'm definitely going to buy a PS3 copy of SFIV, and I don't even have a PS3. This is because most tournys are held on the PS3 console, so I bought a PS3 TE stick. Gotta break it in somehow, and that will be me using my friend's console :)

Anyone on the east coast got the game online yet? I'm trying to stay up because the closest gamestop to me is in Wichita Falls, Tx.

not available online. Guess I'll have to try to go during my lunch break. Hopefully they'll still have copies, otherwise it's going to suck.

I hope this is true since I didn't see any actual confirmation. I just imagine showing up tomorrow at 10 and asking for a copy of SFIV, only to have it ring up at $40.

yeah man same here. it would suck even more for me because apparently the gamestop website is telling me there is no copys of excitebots or street fighter at that store which means i got to drive more out of my way

I suppose only way to know is to go tomorrow morning... I'm picking up 1 SF4 ps3 regardless if it's on sale or not tho. It just means I have to be there earlier than planned now to ensure I get one if this post is legit.
