    if you pre-order why should you get it after others?

    I would think it would be because they got there first, and there was a copy available.

    Well when you pre-order you arent guarunteed your copy before any one else, youre just guarunteed a copy period. So if the store sells out but you preordered then you still get it. This is only useful if you are devoted to gamestop IMO because gamestop sells out of games. Wal Mart :)mad5: ) and target and places like that don't usually sell out of games.

    I'm guessing that you've preordered this game on the web correct? If that is the case you may just want to go to your local gamestop and pre-order it there. I'd suggest only putting down the $5on it in case they don't have enough copies. If more pre-orders come in than they have copies they give them to the first people that arrive to pick it up. Incase this happens you can just pick it up at any store you can find it in. You'll lose the $5 but who cares right? Just my suggestion. That's what I am planning doing. Hopefully though, my search ends at gamestop.

    To be honest, you would most likely get the game if you only put down the $5. Paying it off completely doesn't change anything. It may make them feel more obligated to get you the game before others but that really depends on who your dealing with. If you've ordered the game online that depends on the quantity of the unit they are shipping and the service you choose to have it shipped to you. Next day shipping should get you the game by the 11th or 12th. You should know that even though the game is released on February 10th, it ships on that date and arrives in stores on the 11th typically. I suspect that there will be a few stores that recieve the game the day of release but that's never really certain what store it will be. In a series of unfortunate events you could get it maybe a week or two later than the release date.
