I don't have a preorder my self never believed in them (i mean i don't want them building interest on my money) so I'm gonna get the earliest bus possible into town (get it free since I'm at uni) and camp (not overnight though) outside game (so I can get points on my game card), we have two game stores but I know quite a hidden one that don't get busy so gonna go to that. Great thing is ill be on summer holidays for 4 months XD that start like a week before the game launches.

I'm hoping to take some video if there are any crowd ques, I know the recent WoW was quite a hit with my Uni mates and Final Fantasy so I'm guessing this is gonna be a sell out.

this is the most ridiculous idea ever: game store owners dont have some 'preorder account' set aside to earn interest on all the money from the suckers who preordered, they invest it back into their business in order to make more money... they more than likely use it as a gauge to see how much they should order of said game and use it to buy the supply plus more as they have more capital to draw from...

all that being said, im neither going to camp out or preorder, but i do plan on picking up the game...

Geez, I camped out for Halo3 and it was alright. I didn't wait like 10 hours ahead or anything. I just got there like 1 and half hours before. It was cool because the weather was nice. I don't think I'd do that again though since I have a full time job now.

Well I aint got it they made me work tuesday sad.gif anyway I've seen pictures of people queuing up at midnight in my town as well so maybe I shoulda preordered but I wonder who missed out if they didn't have enough.

So does anyone (I'm guessing no) know when the next shipment is coming in?

Camping for games in pointless. Consoles are the only thing worth camping for.

I will be there as soon as the game goes on sale.
I don't believe in paying $60 for any game.

One or two retailers around here opened at 12:00 for GTA but I just waited til' yesterday morning. There was plenty of stock available of both versions and on both consoles.

Only thing I ever "camped out" for was the Wii and I was just there 2 hours before the store opened.
