I just happened to be shopping at midnight on 11/11/11 and they paged "Everybody that would like a copy of Skyrim please come to electronics" over the intercom. Plus odds are it's been sitting in back for a week or more, I'm sure they'll have it.
I've gotten at least 5 games at midnight from my 24hr Wally World. I must be lucky, there's a nice lady that worked 3rd shift and was more than happy to help me get a game from the back rather than stock the cd shelves lol.
I do it all the time, TC. There's a Wal-Mart 200 yards away from my Gamestop, I've driven by the massive lines a couple times, holding a copy of the game people are waiting on out the window, several minutes, sometimes hours before they get theirs, and I shout "Always low prices!"
jk about the second part
