actually, i had to preorder mine. where i'm from (guam), there's only a few gaming stores on the island. so when a highly anticipated game or gaming console comes out, they fly off the shelves and if you're one of the unlucky ones who don't get your hands on them, you have to wait for their next shipment (usually a month later). but i'm pretty sure you're not from guam, but i'd say preorder it if they're offering you to. that way, you'll know it's yours.
