@gcunit The Game in Manchester is opening at midnight (actually its opening at 11pm for browsing) so I would assume they all are. Inside the store they have quite a substantial display. Nothing on it but a poster but still.

@Mellor2000 I just checked Game's website. Turns out there's a shed load of stores opening for midnight launch, including my local. It's got me intrigued now, I feel like going along just to see if anyone else turns up.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Just been looking at Smyths Toys Switch Midnight launch.

THE CONSOLE IS AVAILABLE AT MIDNIGHT!

THE CONTROLLERS ARE AVAILABLE AT MIDNIGHT!

THE POWER SUPPLY IS AVAILABLE AT MIDNIGHT!

...I can't help but think that something important is missing from being available at the Midnight launch....

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

^Oh crap, I might have a problem, a shiny console but no game to pick up!!

Also, aren't the walk ins only sold in bundle form? So don't expect to only spend 300 plus tax.

So ive decided on the GAME midnight launch. cancelled my other pre orders. Anyone got any experience of these launches? what time should i start queuing?

@ChrispyNoodle I'm told they're are opening at 11pm. If you've preordered I wouldn't bother queuing. I doubt there will be a mad rush.

I'm gonna try and snag a midnight launch order for immediate play while I wait for the Amazon order to be delivered on Friday. The extra console will go to the boyfriend. It's alot of extra money but worth it if he can play games with me in the future like Mario Kart.

So I'm hoping people don't start lining up before 9:30 on Thursday because that's when I get off of work

UPS will be dropping mine off but I may hit up my local GS the next day to geek around.

While not a member of GAME, I am actually running the Basingstoke's one! My gaming group is pretty known by Nintendians in the Hampshire region so GAME asked us to pitch in for the midnight launch.

We've having the Switch playable in the store, retro consoles and cake (possible even a Nintendo Switch cake with Joy Con mini cakes attached to it). Possible a few decorations as well. I need to work out the packing plan for my massive suitcase (seriously I could fit inside that thing)

@ChrispyNoodle who have you preordered with? I've preordered with Game and want to know if prepaying is an option.
