I preordered my copy of Y at the local Wal Mart a couple of weeks ago. I've never preordered anything before, but after reading over the instructions on the back of the card, hings seem straightforward enough. Just return the preorder card and receipt on October 12th, pay the remaining $30 and I get my game right?
Does the fact that I preordered the game guarantee that I won't have to worry about the game being sold out? I am assuming that the store will either recieve a extra copy of the game for every preorder card sold or that they will at least reserve a copy for me. I can't see the game being sold out since I'll be at Wal Mart as soon as the doors open on the 12th, but I would still like to know if this is the case.

Also, a friend of mine is working on the 12th, so he gave me his preorder card and receipt for X. I should be able to get both without any problem right?

Assuming the store has the game on the street date, you should be able to pick it up with no problem. In my experience, the Gamestop I've preordered games at wouldn't have the game until a day or two after the street date. Mind you, by "Gamestop" I mean multiple ones in my area.

It's annoying having to call every day asking if the game's in. -_-

But lately, I've been able to pick up preorders on the actual street date with no problem. The latest of which was Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. I was able to get Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon at the same time (both games came out on the same day) without needing a preorder.

I preordered it a little while ago at gamestop. Normally I don't like dealing with gamestop, but I don't wanna get screwed over, and order it on amazon and have it come like 3 days late, and I wanna pick it up early in the morning.

Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-
