LOL! I got to skip the line at the midnight release!

So there's these new Platinum Memberships you can get at EB Games, so today, when I was preordering my Xbox One, I figured why not get this $15 membership, when I get increased trade in value and a bunch of other stuff. Whatever.

Then last night at the Pokemon X and Y midnight launch, my friend and I got there around 11:30. Normally, I'd like to be there around 10:00, but we were at a Friday Night Magic. So we were near the end of the line, with like 200 people in front of us.

Anywho, so once it's like 10 minutes to midnight, the employee comes walking down the line asking if anyone has a Platinum Membership card. I showed the guy mine, and he said I could move to the front of the line with the 10 other people that got the membership.

So essentially, I only had to wait 30 minutes, where as the people who used to be at the front of the line have probably been waiting there for hours.

Powerup Rewards Pro is not a new membership, I have had it for a few years now. Didn't know it can get you to the front of a line though, I don't do midnight releases.

Feels good to be Irish sometimes when nobody has an interest in Pokemon, wandered into a toy shop and bought it with no line YESTERDAY! :D

If someone is stupid enough to buy it there will always be someone smart enough to sell it.

Well it's new here.

I think they only started selling it recently. Either which way, it will be amazing if I can cut to the front of the line at the Xbox One midnight launch. xD

Did you leave your friend behind in the queue?

Yes, but since I preordered both X and Y, I gave him my Y, and told him he could play it while he waits in line, and then just give me the Y that he was going to get, later.
