Apparently some Targets in the US have broken the street date

Why the **** are they even shipping games if they get so homocidal about leaks?


to prevent shortages and angry fans on release day.

If they shipped things out only a couple days in advance then things like: weather, traffic, detours could result in a delay and loss of sales.

Some places are doing midnight releases so they want to make sure they have the product.

The store also has to do inventory on all of their copies and submit them to a database (I imagine most stores do this at the warehouse, but some may not.)


^ This so much. Especially the angry fans. Anyone who is a Fire Emblem fan could possibly recall that GameStop had quite a lot to deal with when shipments weren't coming in.

I would go to my Target and try to pick my game up, but I don't want Nintendo coming to my house to take my games away. I've had enough of that **** in my childhood from my own horrendous and abusive family, don't want relive my PTSD.

When I worked at target three or so years back I got spore several days early. So there's a chance, but I doubt it.

I guess theoretically an employee could pass a copy to a customer from a box, collect the money, keep the money in their pocket or something and simply enter the transaction into the system the day of release. But the likelihood of that happening is slim to none especially with cameras on so many employees.

I can recall that for sure my Sam's club broke the release date for BW2 as they had them a day early, but they could have been out even earlier. Now the system might have locked out the sale however if you tried to buy them early. Sam's club isn't known for its great video game inventory so you might want to check there if you are looking for a copy and you have a membership.
