Ever since the announcement of best buy selling systems two hours early, I hope Gamestop does the same.

Is beat buy actually selling the systems at 10, or are they just finalizing the previous order purchases at 10? I know Gamestop stayed open for the Black Ops 2 launch the finalize purchases, but they didn't start handing them out until midnight.

"We are anticipating lines to form at many of our stores so we recommend that you arrive early," a Best Buy Q&A reads. "The processing of pre-orders will begin up to 2 hours before midnight and will begin with the front of the line and continue in the order that people arrived. While your pre-order may be processed before midnight, no consoles will be given to customers until after 12:01 a.m."

The OP probably just got confused.

 

They're just processing orders 2 hours early. They are NOT giving the consoles out early.

No store would be allowed to hand out consoles early without permission from Sony, and good luck getting that for a console release.  Only way Best Buy would get that permission if they draped thier whole store in Sony ads and pushed all thier tvs, cameras and everything else Sony lol.

i think your misunderstanding what they are doing...

 

they are probably allowing to pay off any remaining balances before midnight, you probably wont be able to leave the place with one prior to midnight..

they are permitting people to finish off paying for the console ahead of time so when midnight comes all they have to do is pick it up and leave...
