    well it depends if you have a 24 hour walmart near you!
    If you don't then they would sell it when ever they open.

    I asked my Gamestop, the one guy said: probably not, then the other guy said: well since the zelda party we might
    every gamestop/eb games has the choice to have a midnight release which is AKA "zelda party"

    I heard from a regional manager that they are not doing midnight releases as people get robbed more when they do it, he said they even had a case where a PS2 was stolen from an employee in the parking lot after they finished the midnight release, of course in Japan they were stealing PS2s in broad daylight then probably selling them for a huge mark-up. I would just make sure you go with at least one other person to get you console since all these people that had theirs stolen were alone.
    **edit - this was an eb/gamestop regional manager.

    I know the Gamestop I went to for preorder told those of us who made it in time to get a Wii, to come on midnight of the 18th. I assumed all gamestops were doing this, but I guess not?

    My walmart is open 24 hours and it is doing sales at midnight. However, they will also know exactly how many systems they are getting and on Saturday they are lining up that many chairs and when those chairs are taken there are no more systems. So you might still have to camp out on saturday to get a system at midnight.

    Seems like it's different for each store. Call them up and ask - that's your best bet.

    Also, when my Walmart did the Xbox 360 release at midnight you were escorted to your car after purchasing a system by a Columbus police officer carrying a shotgun. One of the craziest things I have ever seen but you felt completely safe. lol

    Obviously a Super Wal-Mart would have a midnight release seeing how they are open 24/7 and game stores usually do a midnight release for major games or game consoles.

    No, I called a super Wal-Mart in my area that's open 24-7, and they told me they weren't putting the Wii's out until 8a. Whether EB and gamestop do a midnight release is up to the store manager; the folks I've talked to at my local gamestop haven't said anything about a midnight release to me. The easiest thing is still to just call and ask.
