    Default Is it better to pre-order online or in store?

    the reason i ask is because i work at wal-mart. i havent heard anything about a midnight madness event yet. i work 3rd shift so i could just buy it on break.

    for some reason if you order it online at walmart.com the earliest you can get is it the 26th and thats if you pay 10 dollars more for shipping.

    Well, I don't normally make ANY video game purchases at Wal-mart but the benfift there is while you are waiting to buy your game, you can walk around the store.

    But, I like pre-ordering in store so I can have the game then and there.

    I would say in-store to get it during your shift. Not sure if there is MM at Walmart or if there even is a bonus for it.

    Online (at least with Game in the UK) gives you a fairly decent chance of receiving the game a day early.

    Order online then it gets mailed straight to home instead of having to go to the store after work/school on release day!

    I am not sure, but I think that the only way to get the Savage Grenadier Elite is by preordering on Wal-mart.com.

    I am 99% sure that you can't pre-order games in store at Walmart.

    Best place to preorder is amazon cause they usually offer you deals and have launch day shipping where it will be at your house the day it comes out. Deals sometimes include like 10 to 20 dollar giftcards depending on the game, just wish they have midnight shipping lol Hey a man can dream right!

    Im so sick of gamestop anyways they are a hassle to deal with they give you so much lip when you cancel a preorder and act like they got a call telling them they got 24 hours to live but the caller forgot to call them yesterday and try to shove bad games down your throat.

    I preorder my games online. The next gamestop is 19 miles form my apartment, Besides i get 2 day free shipping form amazon and most of the time they have great deals on games, Plus returns are easy and simple.

    This.

    Everytime I pre-order from pretty much any UK retailer online, I get my game a 1 or 2 days early.

    I always like to pre order my stuff in store. If you wanna go to a midnight release, pre ordering at gamestop is almost a requirement.
