I'll be staying up for about 10 minutes past midnight if there's anyone that would like to buy it.
If I see anyone that has it pre-ordered, I'll let them know.
But beyond that, meh.

As a side note:
We keep all out PPG dead, the discs don't take up much room.
About 500 or so take up 3/4 of a drawer, of which we have plenty.

Gamestop also sells used movies, they might not have a huge selection but they keep all the discs behind the counters in sleeves, games and movies, i think if we did that, we wouldnt have to worry about theft on but the new retail stuff we carry on movies...so lets have a nice filing system where all prp and games are behind, the rentals arent stolen as much on movies, so we can just keep yellow locking those.

Oh and lets so what hollywood does, put the yellow lock through the middle not on the edge, so if someone tries to steal they fuck the disc up too hahahah`

I think the only reason we keep most stuff live is because corporate thinks we're all morons and can't either handle the filing systems or we are too slow at finding the discs and piss off customers. I think the customers are more pissed off when they get home and there's no disc inside. We would also be able to check the condition of the disc if we've already removed it from the case, thus reducing credits and angry customers getting shit-covered discs.

They also use this excuse: they say that 80% or something like that of theft is internal! I have never believed that, at least at the stores I work at.

Maybe employees see how everything is getting stolen so easily that they just figure if they take a few home, what's the difference, right? If nothing is live then anything that ends up stolen will be blamed on employees, so wouldn't that be a good way to keep them honest?

I just got word last night that I'm staying open until 12'30.
Yeah, that last half hour is going to be for all the people that come in to rent after we close.
That normally pound on the door, puzzled as to why it's locked.
I'm sure the people that will get SSB:B will be in and out by 12'05.

Our district is pushing GTA4 hard....minimum of 20 presales per store with hopes of reaching 60 presales for that good old TNR. So Far we have 8 presales which it has been easier to deal with then SB for Wii.
