Why is it that whenever people post about getting this early, somebody gets really angry that they are buying it before release date and yells at them for not waiting. :I

If it's there in the store and the register allows them to buy it, it makes no sense for them to deprive themselves of the game. Furthermore it hurts none of you in the slightest that they buy and enjoy the game when they see it there.

The game isn't released where I live for another 9 days or so, but that doesn't mean I'm going to flip out at anybody who was fortunate enough to get theirs early. I'm a little jealous sure, but that's it. xD The instant you guys see another person get the game before you, suddenly that games are only sold to the public after their official release is something you deeply care about?


There's only one person in this topic even acting like that and you damn sure better not be including me in this rant. I'm being realistic, nothing more.

Naw dude don't worry, I've seen it mainly in other topics, I wasn't talking about you. c: I guess this was a little rant-y for just one dude getting angry about it. Sorry guys~

I'm not saying people shouldn't get it early if it's being sold with no restrictions. I'm just saying people need to be patient, for the ones who are trying to get people to sell it early even though they can't or aren't willing.

From: Pkmn Tranier Abram | #019
He's technically right though. No one that can't get away with selling it early is going to sell it early. Unless they are stupid.

Of course I'm right. I'm just saying, people are impatient.

And yes, you are right stock like this gets shipped weeks in advance. That doesn't mean that they are going to sell it just because they technically got it.


Our games and stuff usually come in on the Tuesday before release. And if I'm working at that point, even if it's cleared through the system I'm not selling it. I am a gamer and I am fully aware of release dates. If you want to try it on one of the other multiple people that have no idea wtf they are going, go right ahead. But I'm doing what I know is right.

Fail here. I walked in and noticed they had a spot for it but none on the shelf. A guy had a cardboard box and was putting out some games coincidentally so I decided it was worth a shot and asked him... he informed me it doesn't come out until the 7th :(

I tried 3 different walmarts in 2 different states (because im a foreveralone with no life) and only at one walmart was I able to get them to pull out a copy, and at the register they got a message saying they couldn't sell it.

Let's see proof... including the walmart receipt. There's no doubt somewhere broke street date... I just doubt walmart was that place.

Oh, I could believe it. Out of my entire department counting every shift, only me and one other person actually know when things are supposed to go out. Everyone else if it'll scan, they will put it on a shelf. I lost count of how many times I had to go back and double check the games section to make sure nothing was placed ahead of time.

If it's not supposed to be sold, then Walmart's system will prompt as such.

BTW- pics will be here shortly.
