    It's not possible to direct link, so click that, and click the Right arrow, until you find the one with the blonde haired woman holding a blue 3DS on the right side, or just scroll down until you see the banner ad.

    Yea, I'm not gonna bother. I have it on pre-order, so I'll just wait a day so I can play with it without worry of other people breathing down my neck to watch.

    One day before launch... Now they're just f*cking with Americans.

    Edit:

    It says to click to find participating stores, then it doesn't show any... great...

    Lol, thats a evil move. Gamestop should know the day before a new release is ALWAYS the longest. Now they just taunt us with thier Kiosk unit that will be covered in grease and boogers.

    I don't see how this helps the consumer one bit. It's probably just a chance to shill extra accessories and games. I'll pass and wait 1 stupid day for my 3DS. Unbelievable. [​IMG]

    Edit: And they have the nerve to do an "encore" of this stupid idea one week later, lolz. [​IMG]

    http://www.gamestop.com/gs/gamestopevents/ Doesn't list the previews as events. But this did inform me of the 9AM and Midnight Openings. I think I'll hit up a 9am opening before church since neither of my GameStops are doing a Midnight Opening apparently. I just hope the one I preordered at will be the one opening early, but I'm pretty sure it is.

    Yeah... the GameStops in my reach are all WAAAAAY far out.

    I'll be getting mine in the morning at 9 right down the block. [​IMG]

    It's REALLY lousy that they have the preview event only a DAY before release.... >_>

    The Gamestop I got my DSi at midnight at is having a midnight release, but I preordered it at the new one that's like a two minute drive. No midnight release at that one.

    I have work on the 27th at 8 A.M. anyway, so I guess it's a good thing because I would end up staying up all night. I guess I'll pick mine up after 3 P.M. on March 27th.

    That's strange, the Gamestop I pre-ordered mine at isn't being listed under Midnight or 9AM launch :/

    Same here with my store. But I'm sure it's because they're in a mall.
    Oh, what the hell, they're lazy bastards anyway. [​IMG]

    Same, mine's in a mall. But there are three locations near me that are not in malls that aren't being listed as midnight or 9am either.

    You realize Nintendo is the one including that 2GB card, right? It's not like GameStop is throwing it in. If you found a bundle with an 8GB included, more than likely, you'll be getting an 8GB and a 2GB.

    What would we even use an 8GB SD card for? That's too much space.
