Pffft Best Buy and Circuit City? I'm sticking with Game Stop. As much as I'd rather support a smaller game store, can't seem to avoid using them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

when they announce a release date, it doesn't come out that day usually, it come out the next day.

That's why she said: "As much as I'd rather support a smaller game store, can't seem to avoid using them."

*** Correct me if I'm wrong, this meant "prefers to support a game store smaller than Gamestop, but can't avaoid going to Gamestop."

I think they just let anyone post here.

So far, in the weekly ads for this Wednesday's release:

Best Buy (by 2pm)- $59.99, unlockable non-exclusive rifle
Circuit City (by 2pm) - $59.99, Vegas 2 fuzzy dice, gamer's energy kit (which looks like it includes energy drinks and candy)
Target (by 4pm) - $59, $10 Target gift card

I think Target's the best deal, especially if your parents aren't buying the game for you.

Compared to Best Buy and Circuit City, yes they are. They don't sell half as much as Best Buy or Circuit City.

Also, don't insult forum staff. It is uncalled for, and just disrespectful.

I didn't think Wal-Mart or Target, etc. did pre-orders.

Lets all just relax. It comes out this week. Lets all go out listen to The Dropkick Murphys and enjoy our St. Patty's Days. There is life outside of Vegas. Least there is for me.

I think Target has to specifically have an item to ring up like a special pre-order card or something and they'll only do it for super big releases like like Halo and Grand Theft Auto.

And as far as those times are concerned, the guy I spoke with at Target said those times would be for if they hadn't received them until that day. You should definitely call ahead.
