I know this isn't the right place but does anyone know how long they will hold your copy after release? I was thinking about pre ordering this but if i have to get it within say 2 days i might reconsider pre ordering.

They hold it for 2 days, 48 hours. When I work on a Tuesday and Wednesday of release week, my game has always been there on that Thursday. I would make sure to get it by closing on Thursday. Otherwise they'll sell it on Friday.

^ The above two posts are based on the individual stores in question.

Many stores have a demographic. For example, my best friend managed a GameStop. In his store, you can't get a copy of Madden, GTA, CoD unless you reserve it. There are lines around the block at release for those games. But you could walk in on release day and pick up Bioshock: Inifinte with no problem. It comes down to what games/series do well in your local GameStop.

The GameStop I go to is 100% by the book. On Friday morning at 10:00 if someone walked in and asked for GTA V and mine was the last copy, they'd sell it in a heartbeat. There's one guy who is cool and would hold a game for me if he could, because I've been going there for a few years now, but the management there isn't having it. In other stores it might be no problem though. You have to go by the premise that they'll follow the rules. If not, it's likely you won't get your copy.

They'll hold it for you if they can, but if it comes down to it and they only have your reserved copy left to sell, they'll sell it. Get there within 48 hours for a guaranteed copy, or a little later for probably no copy.

I forecast that all the Gamestops will be packed on release day. Like, people camping outside the store packed. Except for maybe the Gamestops in Wyoming or some other empty state.
