    Midnight releases are based on preorders of a specific game. My local Gamestop said he is "pretty sure" they are having a midnight release. Hey, that's better than a no.
    Its also store specific so make sure your store has enough preorders.

    One of the Gamestops in Rockford (near the kohls at state / mulford) will be having a midnight release. I'm not sure about the rest of them, however.

    God I love the member map haha.

    Preorders. The Gamestop I called said they need 50 preorders in order to have a midnight release otherwise its not worth it for them to stay open.

    IMO, unless you want to play in the launch tourneys that most big stores do in the mall when the big games get released at midnight, i would go to walmart.

    Becuase walmart also does preorders, they are required to have it available to purchase at midnight. Last time i did a midnight release at walmart, latest COD with over 250 ppl in line, every person got a game and was out the door within an hour, they dont mess around at wally world

    GameStop = 50% of Pro Combats
    Walmart = Recruiting Advisor
    BestBuy = Exclusive 5 star QBs
    Amazon = NCAA 12 starter guide

    What kind of places are these and what do you say to them to try and get them to give one out?

    Places that are one or two store chains where you can make friends.

    I've also had luck in the past getting copies "loaned" to me from Gamestop.

    EA has said that you'll still be able to get the pro combats as a free DLC even if you don't order from gamestop. I haven't read when they'll be available though.

    Midnight releases are overrated. Plus I don't like to drive drunk.

    There will be no midnight release where I live. All I have is a Walmart, and two places that buy and sell used video games. In addition my Walmart sucks the game will not be stocked till the afternoon of the release of the date. Again I hate where I live. :mad:

    II have question, if I pre order the game, would I most likely get the game by the 12th, or would it be later?
