It also depends on how many people pre order ps4 at your gamestop. My gamestop doesn't do midnight releases for ps exclusives bc I live in an area where most people have xboxs.

Even if you do preorder, there is still a chance of leaving without a ps4. Sony has set a preorder cap. Which means you might notget your console until January.

I get it, but still it's like the ppl there will already have their stuff either paid for or preordered so what do they really have to worry about? ppl outside trying to steal stuff? I guess, my gf and I always carry knives on us so idk, bring a weapon or something. Our plan is parked one of our vehs nearby earlier in the day then drive our other veh to the store so that way we're close by and can just throw it in the trunk and take off ^ ^

 

Where the hell do you live... Pakistan?!  I live near Detroit and don't even have these kinds of concerns.

it may not be in gamestops control.. primarily they can only do a midnight release if the mall that its in permits it..

if the mall managment says no.. then they got no choice..

 

and safty concerns is a major factor because the mall would be liable.


 

Most Gamestops aren't in malls (at least in Michigan).  Also, how is safety a bigger concern with a console release?  This whole thread is insane.

havnt you heard what happened the last time a midnight release was done for a console launch?

 

and while its true thete are gamestops that isnt in malls but the lot its own is not owned but leased, much like a mall..  which also has a company which manages the lot..

I think it depends on the store / area. Not ALL GameStops will have a midnight release, but I'm sure most will.

 

I have 3 GameStop stores in my area. Then 2 others in about a 20 mile radius. (1 of which is in a mall.)

I wouldn't expect every single one of them to have a midnight launch for the PS4.

 

It depends on pre-sales for that particular store (if it's worth the payroll to have the midnight) and safety.

 

 

 

This applies for games too. Not every store has one for CoD.

TLoU was a highly anticipated game, yet the closest store to have a midnight was 20+ miles away from me.

So, I got a refund and just picked it up at Walmart after midnight.

He just doesnt want you to be another person in line at the midnight launch so he can take your place and get your PS4 hahahaha

Im sure the vast majority of gamestops will be open at midnight, it is a business and it has to compete with other businesses who will be open for the midnight launch.  Walmart definately will most are open anyways, best buy usually does it so i dont see any difference this time and with gamestop becoming less of a necessary business and trying to hold thier customers i dont see them pulling a MS oops i mean not opening at midnight and upsetting thier customers so they go somewhere else.
