When should we find out if Gamestop is having a midnight release?

Question I was wondering when should we find out if Gamestop will be having a midnight release for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y?

They won't.

It's unlikely since the target audience's bedtime is way before midnight.

That's what my Gamestop said. And I don't blame them. Pretty sound logic.

I already made a thread about this.

If you have a 24/7 Walmart near you, be there at midnight and ask for them to bring out the game.

I did it for Pokemon Black and White with my friends. No pre-order, just tell them "The game comes out today, can you go see if Pokemon X and Y are in the back?" and they will come out with them.

GameStop decides on midnight releases based on how many pre-orders they get. If your store has 100 pre-orders, they will probably have a midnight release. They should know by now if they will or not.

Some will, some won't.

Why don't you check to see if yours will do one or not?

When I was at mine last week, they said they needed 3 more preorders to have one, and when I went in today, they had signs everywhere announcing the midnight release. The Gamestop is very close to a college campus, however, so most of their customers would actually be willing to go to it (and 3 of the 4 employees I know there all are getting the game and probably wanted it too).
