Best Buy vs. Gamestop midnight opening

I heard Best Buy lets you play Black Ops 2 before the release or something at midnight.

I don't understand the hate for Gamestop.

30% extra trade in for certain games, including Blops 2

Warranty coverage for $3

I went in with a FIFA game that was annihilated and w/o a warranty. Two gamestops didn't replace it since it was user error but the third one a girl replaced it for me for free! Naturally I bought a warranty after.

My gamestop is taking orders/payments at 6 and then starting up again at 11:30. Not bad at all.

Actually Gamestop processes payments at 9:00 pm and hands out the games at 12:00. It's exactly the same as Best Buy.

I don't know what kind of Gamestop you go to.

you do realize you can pay for games as part of your pre-order right? so that release day you can just pick up the item...

Yes, this is a signature.

So every year when I go to buy a game at midnight release at Gamestop, including last week for Halo 4, I am actually just dreaming and not actually processing my payment at 9 and getting my game at 12:01?

But it felt so real...

Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked people get a $20 gift card. Gamestop Power up pro people get nothing.

Yeah, obviously you can pay it off early, Gamestop is eager to take your cash at anytime.

But the difference is you get your NUMBER for line at 6PM for my gamestop.

And dethklok, once again, you can go ahead and call and ask. Maybe your gamestop doesn't have as many people going to it as mine or something, but they are starting to give numbers out at 6 PM and opening for the first group at 11:30.

You kidding me? It's packed. But I guess it's different for Gamestops in other states.
