    In the video desc: "I stopped by my local gamestop to changed my pre-order color for my 3DS on reserve and to pre-order Street Fighter 3D and it just so happens they had some units in the stores already." I may try to do the same, but I'm pretty sure my GameStop has more respect than to sell it early. I had the chance to listen while the managers were talking amongst themselves, planning out upcoming stuff. They were really serious about the store's reputation.

    Kind of weird, right? I've seen many people too get the US 3DS early.

    A lot of stores don't really care about official dates. Their line of thinking is generally "Well we've got these units and we can sell them for money, so let's sell them for money!"

    I got a call from my local Gamestop earlier today. They reminded me about it releasing on Sunday, no day earlier. [​IMG]

    Stores generally never do this for hardware...at least not big release hardware. I still have not seen anyone get the 3DS early in the US from retail and it will likely not happen.

    I think that's really cool! That'd be awesome to get it a few days early...since some stores do this, do you think Amazon could ship a little early?
