Oh god, GTA4 has been WAY easier to presale...it's made me feel almost criminal sometimes...

But with SSB, we sold out of our regular (non-presold) copies in about 2 hours and we had people asking the rest of the day about it...it was a very satisfying feeling telling them they should have pre-ordered it when we asked them...

They lasted that long at your store? At mine they were gone by 11am.

im so glad noone asked me about SSBB this morning because I opened alone and forgot to ask my SM if by chance we had any presales. (small game rental/retail when it comes to the Wii)

Though I hope we can rock at the GTA4 presale we have tons of people with 360's

I may be slightly exaggerating, this is just what I heard from the person who opened that morning...

Regardless, I'm sure they disappeared pretty quickly...

so the GTA will be hella easier to presale, because I rent more 360 games than i do anything else. GTA will have online capabilites, so that makes it an easier sell to the hard core gamers.

from what i understand, the goals will be huge on this. good luck everyone.

(and i am a 11pm store, i will not be having a midnight sale.)
we are an 11 pm store also, but with the last wii mario smash brothers, they made us stay open till 1 am.

Yesterday, I had a thirty-something woman come up to me with Saints Row and Devil May Cry 4, and when I asked her if she wanted to preorder Grand Theft Auto, she gave me a look like I'd just asked her to buy crack and said, "My kids don't play those kinds of games."
