Ok, normally I stay away from Gamestop, they suck...period. I really wanted madden 12 so for the the first time, in a very long time, I went up there for the midnight Madden 12 opening. I was in line with maybe 20 people, I got inside and they wouldnt sell me the game because I had not pre-ordered it from them! There were at least 30 copies sitting behind the counter and 1 other person behind me in line, the employee told me it was Gamestop policy because i didnt pre-order through them. This Gamestop is located 100 yards from Walmart, I told the kid fine, I will walk over here and buy it. Walmart not only sold me the game, but they had football cupcakes for customers shooping madden at midnight! Walmart!! wow
I had to vent! Wow gamestop, you would give up a $60 sale to Walmart because I didnt pre-order it? WOW

The gamestop corporate office is going to hear about this, i know they dont give a damn but I have to.

They had to save those copies for others who had pre ordered it through them. But I can understand that it was probably a bit frustrating at the time.

The reason is, gamestop has all of those preorders paid for ahead of time for the midnight release. At midnight they simply let in the people who reserved and mark off the reciept and give them the game. They are not actually running transactions at that point. Just reserve the game next time.

That`s why I tell all my friends Amazon it-No tax No shipping costs Release day delivery & in most cases a $10-$20 credit towards your next game when you preorder through Amazon-I`ve been doing this for a year now & saved so much money-I ordered COD Black Ops Fallout New Vegas Fable 3 Mass Effect 2 LA Noire Alice Batman Arkham Asylum & Arkham City NHL 12 Madden as well as NCAA Football-I have never had any issues just a great service-

It's pretty much GS's SOP for midnight launches. The don't usually sell to anyone who didn't pre-order until the next morning.

And I am laughing at the people of Ethiopia for not having anything to eat at midnight! Who cares about Ethiopia? That is not related to buying a game at midnight...
