Depends on where you live, and the gamestop location. If the location is in a mall, they wont do a midnight release not unless they have an outside access door. At least the Gamestops around my area are like that.

Hmm, most times if there is alot of preorders at the store you are going to...I think the worker at game stop said something around 50+, they will have a midnight release. Maybe it wasnt enough, or like you said...An epic fail on that stores part.

I'm hearing of a lot of the stores not doing it. Every one with a preorder should call the store they use:/

OR you can get a good night sleep then go and get your game after you've had breakfast and coffee, that way you can enjoy the game to its fullest.


I went to the midnight release of the Sega Dreamcast, 9/9/99 it was awesome but I fell asleep after a few hours of playing.

So there was these two bulls up on the hill, the younger one said to the older one "Hey lets charge down there and get on two of those cows. The Older Bull said "Hey why don't we walk down the hill and get them all".

That's why I'm doing my install the day before. So there is no rush when it goes live

You can get it at midnight at wally world thats great.

Don't blame a store or company if this game is not selling well enough for them to warrant the time and money to put into releasing it at midnight.

Theirs a lot that goes into it to decide if it is worth it Example employees they have to pay over time, utilities, and for inside a mall teaming up with security to have doors open and a line watched.

For borderlands 2 every freestanding game stop was open at midnight some of the malls where not, for halo 4 and diablo 3 all stores where open at midnight, it all depends on the number of people ordering I am near a major city ( Phoenix) and a college town ( Tempe) and their are not many if any midnight releases around here it just did not do that well in pre orders.

Midnight release would have been great with out it do to work I probably will not be getting mine till friday so my UE sit's their because I can't pick it up till then and was told they would be doing a midnight release when I pre ordered my copies but now their not.

Just the way it goes with gamestop.

Did you preorder from Walmart?
If not,are you sure you still get the bonuses?

I'm just curious,as I'm going to my local Walmart as well,it would be cool to get the bonuses even if I didn't preorder.

Of course, there's no benefit of canceling a Gamestop order in order to go to Wal-Mart instead if you're in extreme hype mode, since that likely means ordering an Ultimate Edition, which is a Gamestop exclusive...

I payed full for two copies of the collectors edition, I just called to see if they were taken any more.


So A) they didn't make enough or B) they didn't think it would be this popular or C) all of the above.

This is why I usually don't preorder. And never from gamestop. They always have a reason.

The servers are up at midnight, so getting it early will still be awesome. Trion stated that it will be midnight Eastern time, so i guess it depends where you live.

As an employee of GameStop, you need:

A certain quota of pre-orders
OK'd by district managers
People able to work it
If GS is in a mall, the cost of keeping the doors open

Gamestops get their pre-orders in a few days before release, so if they already have their shipment and you pre-order 2 days before release, there is a good chance they won't get it in til after.

If there's a cool enough employee, could they give me my game that monday night before they close?

No, in fact Trion could sue the store and/or Ban those that get it early. Happened with halo 4 some people got it early from stores and were banned.

Doubt it would matter all that much anyways since you won't be able to get in game till the servers open and you are allowed to patch.

Depending on the area where the store (Gamestop) is and how many pre-orders they have determine if they have a midnight release.

My district requires a store to have 75 pre-orders on a title to be able to have a midnight release. My store has about 20 and that's only because I've been talking everyone's ears off about this game. I'm upset too about not getting mine at midnight, but knowing I get an employee discount makes up for it since I have 3 copies to pick up.

My GameStop won't be having a midnight launch either, but I'll pick it up as soon as the store opens, get the install started, and do anything that needs doing to kill time.

Well....I was told when i preorder, this at a standing location, that they were all ready for the midnight release...Called my gamestop today just to confirm, they told me its not going to happen now. Oh well...Would of loved to have it all ready the night of release, maybe called in sick to work and gamed all night and day. Guess i will do it after work now.
