How does GameStop preorder work? First come, or order of preorder?

I got a very late preorder, does this mean I am back of list even if I wait on line? Like does it matter when I go to pick up system?

Gamestop is not supposed to take more pre-orders then consoles (some keep on taking pre-orders after, but should say you are not assured a launch console)

So everyone on the pre-order list should get one (assuming they did not do any shady business practices)

Ask your local gamestop? My receipt says Day one edition, don't know what yours says. But normally you should be able to just go and pick it up since you did pre-order and they only took pre-orders for the amount that they are selling.

Usually Gamestops open early to make sure your console is paid off and then it's first come to people how have paid it all off at midnight.
Everyone that preordered one will get one on day one though

Think its 1st in line, but I really hope I'm wrong because I'm the 1st to order at my local GS

I was garrenteed an Xbox on day one, but it is not day one edition! I preordered like three weeks ago when it came out that GS had a few extra coming. There not day one editions though.

Basically every one who preordered one from GameStop will get it at launch.

Just got a call about coming to the midnight release, said they're doing a check in for pick up.

First come first serve with that however.

At check in, you're given a number at which point you come back 6 hours later and wait for your number to be called.

Also, their taking 90% more on trading in a system... my Xbox is going for $30, so 27 increase brings it to just under $60.

No thanks.

What about ordering from GameStop online? I ordered mine pretty late online when they opened up to take a few extra pre-orders. I paid for 1 day shipping, so I assume it won't be here on the 22nd but instead the 23rd/24th, but I have never pre-ordered from GameStop before so I'm not sure what to expect.

I ordered on the 15th from the Xbox one tour. They say it's a day one but I'm not sure if I'll get it on the 22nd

If you pre-ordered you will get your system. What spot you are in line depends on how early you get up there Thursday night.
