    Hi, my local EB Games is having a midnight launch. If you did not pre-order, do you think they would have extras? And would anyone know if it's too late to pre-order? I know I'm a little late to the race =/

    Thanks.

    I think its too late to pre-order from EB Games, I tried back in the middle of February and my EB games said they had taken all their pre-orders. As for extra copies, I don't think they will. The only copies there will probably be from the pre-orders.

    They will have extra copies.

    I went to the Halo 2 launch at midnight, and lo-and-behold they had at least 50 extra copies.

    Same at the Halo 3 launch.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    well i reserve games becuase you can pay them off widly because i ordered in november i just put some dollars and even cents down everytime i passed by and becuase of the delays its already all payed off thats why i mostly pre-order because most places will order 5-7 extra copies which you probably could get because everyone already as preordered, Anyways try target or other low key locations that well mostly have copies

    unless Nintendo did not produce enough copies, most stores will try to have atleast double the pre-orders in stock. When I worked for a company a while back, they usually forcasted 2-4x the number of Pre-orders for their initial stock, more if several other factors were met. I would assume that if the supply was there, most stores should have atleast double the amount of preorders available.

    A friend of mine said he also did that. How much money are they requiring for a down payment? The usual 5?

    Remember that if your preorder Gamestops will be having a tournament at around 9:00 before the game comes out.

    where abouts did you try to pre order

    i live in a tiny town town about 2 hours of toronto and i preordered it about 18th feb, and i was able to pre order it, but they also said ill be getting my copy likely on the 10th, so im guessing i got on the list for a second ship ment.

    I heard it was illegal to completely preorder your stock

    like you have to at least some on the shelves. Not neccisairily all the time mind you..but they can't JUST sell them for preorders
