Midnight Release
« on: Dec 19, 2011, 09:05 AM »
Got my text from Gamestop - saying "Hey your SWTOR Collectors Edition will be availaable at midnight release!"

  I'm curious just who in the world will actually go there at midnight?   Everyone that preorderes is playing already, so there really is no incentive to go out to gamestop at midnight when you coudl otherwise be playing.

Probably all those 3 people who didn't pre-order and are waiting to buy the copy to start playing? I know, I'm sure there are a few out there lol.

Just more proof that retail is dying. I mean ffs, I got my copy a full 4 days before release from amazon.

I wouldn't say retail is dying or is useless, but for big games like SWTOR, pre-ordering is pretty much the LAW. Unless you don't mind waiting a few days after launch.

I go to EB Games, Best Buy, etc. from time to time to check older games, because sometimes they have used games for like 10$ and I don't have to wait 1-2 days + shipping to get it, I can buy it and play right away.

Best Buy... Amazon's local show room, check out all the cool stuff and get in store help only to go home and buy it online for cheaper

I guess brick and mortar is good for used console games... But even then amazon sells used(also eBay ftw) and steam sales/GOG have made PC retail worthless for bargains, unless you really really like boxes.
