I have a gamestop near me that is doing the midnight release that I can be there for. I never pre ordered the switch because I didn't know about it until after the pre orders were sold out Anyway I just wanted to know how long I should wait in line for the switch. I already have botw pre ordered so I am good on that so what is the point in having botw and no switch?

I'd set up camp there now just to be safe.

Five days should be enough. So don't worry, you still have time.

I only have a max of 8 hours sadly is that good enough to be able to get it? I am so worried here.

Well, most stores give people in waiting in line a ticket of some sort instead of a mad dash when the doors open (especially tiny Gamestops... where the heck are you going to dash to? lol). So you'll know pretty early in the night if you're going to get one or not.

Edit: Oh, yea... I would just show up as early as you possibly can.

Thanks, this helps a lot I don't want to wait in line all evening just to find out I can't get one lmao.

Oh, keep in mind I believe gamestop is only selling in bundles. You won't be able to buy only a Switch, as I understand it.

For me, I'm running over to my nearest Best Buy after work at 9 and hoping I make it in time

Don't you have to have a pre order at best buy though?

I was told there would likely be a small amount for walk ins, I've gotta go back next week to get a definitive answer.

Hey all, I phoned my local EB Games, and they said they would open at 9 AM on Friday (and have walk-ins). I live in a pretty small city, and the hours are advertised as 10AM-9PM online, do you guys think with past experience that if I get there a bit under an hour early that would be enough?

Why don't you go around Wednesday and ask if there will be consoles for the walk ins to the manager? That way, you can be sure if the trip and the wait will be worth it.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
