I never preorder unless it gives me a good incentive to. A dull steel case that will take up more room is not a good enough reason. So I went to gamestop to pick up a copy and the manager who i know pretty well said they only got 2 copies in for non preorders and they sold them already.
Long story short..having friends within gamestop is very beneficial as I got him to let me buy someones preordered copy. Basically he can always just tell them that there was a problem with shipment and it will come in soon. Sounds jerkish but we do this thing a lot...hes let me take online codes/passes from new copies for used games i bought.
Anyway..my point was..if you didnt preorder...well i wish you luck. Oh and the store I go to does very good business so its likely most other gamestops will have low quantities too.

I'm pretty sure that both of you are terrible human beings all things considered. If you didn't want a steelcase, you don't have to accept it. Still could have pre-ordered instead of screwing someone who had the intelligence to do so. --- Alice returns in 2011, I'll be ready... http://www.ea.com/alice Inception ending spoiler: http://twitpic.com/26k9ub

I learned that lesson years ago... if there was a game that I really wanted then I need to preordered it because if I didn't I could never get a copy on release day and had to wait a day or two until in store stocks filled.
That is wrong to steal/buy somebody else preordered copy.

Hope your manager gets fired for that, as it's against Gamestop policy to even do that kind of s***

Both of you are a-holes, you're the type of people that annoy the living hell out of me, someone is excited to pick up their rightfully preordered copy and you bought it and now they have to wait for something they already put money on, and you take codes from new copies of games when you buy the used copy? So someone spends they're rightfully earned money and doesn't get the online codes dlc whatever it is that they deserve and payed for because some kid and his friend took it? --- PSN- TheMightyCfresh, Currently Playing- Far Cry 3, Ni No Kuni Fallout 3-1550/1550, ES V: Skyrim-Platinum

I agree with everyone else here. You, sir, are a moron and your friend should be fired as well.
