  3. Day 1 without a preorder?
3 years ago#1
So I have this game reserved at one gamestop but I realized I would be away and wouldn't be able to pick it up until Tuesday. I was thinking of just cancelling my preorder and going to buy this on day 1 at another gamestop near where I will be for the weekend but without a preorder. What are the chances I can get this day 1 without a preorder?

I'm positive you can get a copy. It wont run out,I'm sure.

This is a big release, so most stores are getting a lot of copies. You shouldn't have any problem picking this up at any store you go to, but it may be a good idea to get there early just in case.

It'll be good to go in early when the store opens, at that time they could afford to give away copies, but it depends on how many pre-orders there are to give out first. I've done it when b/w was released

Cancel the pre-order and pre-order at Target so you can get the gift card. Target gives you a week to pick it up.

Depends on the city where you will be. Is it a retirement community or out in the boonies? Yes, you'll have a chance. If you will be in New York or California, fat chance.

Yes, stores are getting lots of copies, but there are lots of pre-orders as well. My own store's launch day inventory is about 40% pre-ordered at the moment, and I'll be surprised if we don't sell out by the end of the day Sunday. My first and foremost suggestion is not to cancel your pre-order until after you have procured a copy. If you can't wait a couple days, and manage to get one on launch day, then you can cancel your pre-order when you get home.

Thank you guys for all the responses. I have another question now. Does anyone know when gamestop stops accepting preorders? I would be able to go into that store Friday to preorder it but idk if that's too late. Anyone know?

You can preorder up until a day before launch. Whether or not they are full on preorders for that shipment is another story.
