Where have you guys preordered your game? Will you be getting it at midnight?

Just found out that my gamestop will not have a midnight release. Instead they'll open an hour early (9AM) on Saturday morning.

Unfortunately I can't wait that long since there's still two weeks left and i'm already at my wits end waiting for this game.......and also because I go to work at noon on Saturday and I had planned on getting the game at midnight, playing until the early morning and then waking up an hour or so before work

I want a physical copy so I really don't want to digitally DL this game if I can help it. Are there any places that you know of that will have a midnight release for this game?

Didn't preorder, probably won't get it until the Monday after it is released.

Everyone feels sorry for you, but that's definitely not what he asked.

My GS isn't doing a midnight release either, so I opted for Target. You get a $5 gift card for each game, plus if you have a redcard, that's an extra 5% off. I actually get an employee discount as well, so it's really 15% plus that gift card.

Both games at GS: $87.98 @ 10% tax
Both games at Target: 83.59 with a redcard @ 10% tax, -$10 with the gift cards.

So you really only spend $73.60 as opposed to $88 if my math is right. And Target opens at 8.

However, I would imagine Wal-Mart would sell you a copy at midnight if you talked to the electronics department manager beforehand.

Edit: fixed math

Gamestop, nope.

If that offends you for whatever reason, shoot me a PM and I'll correct your misconception.

Midnight, Digital Download for Pokemon Y version.

I hope to by a physical copy of X that Saturday morning... unless I find that these games somehow break my expectations and tank horribly. Though I'm doubting that will happen.

Preordered at Gamestop .. are they even doing a midnight launch?
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-

Preordered at Gamestop.

Even if they do a midnight release, I'd rather avoid the risk of being robbed in the dark and get some rest before playing it almost nonstop.

Target. Can't get it at midnight because of some factors. I'll just get it early the next day.
