Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Called 3 of my local EB stores and...

So the story goes like this. EB Games/Gamestop Canada stores were told via email from their HQ yesterday, January 29th that they were permitted to start selling FE: Awakening as soon as they received it since it "wasn't" street dated. Most stores called up their pre-orders and sold through a bunch of their copies by end of day. This morning, January 30th they sent another email out retracting the previous instructions and stating that only pre-orders that were contacted previously were still allowed to obtain their FE.

To conclude my findings, I'm glad I checked my voicemail this morning! :D

My favorite basketball player on Michigan's team this year (Nik Stauskas) is from Mississauga. The kids in the student section have a maize and blue (school colors) Canadian flag they wave to support him.

Any luck with Square One?
#27luxapolloPosted 1/30/2013 9:36:10 PM
I preordered and the store at SquareOne (the big mall in downtown Mississauga) actually *called* me in the morning to tell me I could come pick it up. I wonder if they were only releasing to people who preordered?

*shrug*

Only if I pre-ordered it, Square One says.

That's BS.

Super late to this topic, but I live in Toronto, and still go to this great store in Mississauga for every major release- VGP at the Central Parkway mall (that crappy mall near Square One) I won't say any more, but go there from now on. And try to preorder, every 12 games picked up via preorder gets you a free full price release.
