    Ok In about a week the 3DS will arrive in EU so I was was thinking of buying it before I go to school because I think I can't survive school with the feeling it is going to be sold out [​IMG] but luckily I have the first 2 hours(100 minutes) free so I'm wondering isn't it a bit weird if I'm going to a Game store at about 9 am ?? And will they even have it at that time ^^ I mean: "Hello I want to have a 3DS" -> "Sorry we don't have it in stock yet" or "haha Fanboy"(Joking) but I really can wait until 3PM [​IMG] than it'll be like shaking and stressing.

    Is it weird to get it so early ?? and how about you?? When are you planned to get it ?? AM PM ?? (If you're not buying it... Don't bother us)

    I promise that a retail store will not think you are weird for wanting to give them money.

    Just go for it, no worries [​IMG]

    Considering that midnight launches exist, I don't think it would be weird to pick up your 3DS at 9AM. [​IMG]

    Trust me, if you're going to get it from a Gaming store, they will not think anything of it. The people who work in GAME and Gamestation, are all gamers themselves so they'd be happy for you to get it early xD

    Like others said, people wait and get it at midnight, so 9am is nothing [​IMG]

    I'm getting Super Street Fighter and maybe Ridge Racer.

    They get everything ready before the shop opens. Don't worry if you think they won't have it on the day of release because they get stock a day (or more) before release.

    Don't be crazy, why it would be weird? [​IMG] I always do that, even when I had school I was the first one there.

    No, it isn't weird.

    I'll be going to Zellers at 10:00AM (when the store opens) to get the 3DS. Since Zellers isn't a dedicated videogame store, I'm hoping that there isn't too many people there. When I went to get Metroid: Other M and Pokemon White, Zellers was empty.

    Yeah I also thought of pre-ordering it but I just like the buying part (and I had some bad experience with online shopping -_- 2months for a yoyo (which I canceled)) I also like the riding back home part ^^ super fast so I can open it up [​IMG]

    EDIT: maybe gonna buy it at Bartsmith because you can't pre-order it there (so no out of stock because of pre-order) you only can book one so they will send you a E-mail when it's available or just bart muli media ^^ I'm not expecting a enormous crowd of people

    They already get them in stock on Monday. They will definitely be in the shelves when the shops open on Friday.

    That's pretty much what I'm doing. I on Nintendo 3DS's launch day, and on Sundays I normally work 8-3, but I know the day is going to drag on and I won't be able to stop thinking about it.

    I requested to work 8-1 instead. I don't have to worry about it being sold out, because I pre-ordered mine January 19th (Day the price was revealed).

    It's far from weird. I would've done the same if the 3DS was launching here.
