Tales from a Midnight Release

A gamers perspective and personal insight into the glory which is that of the midnight release! This is a topic that is not often spoken of in great detail, and hopefully a conversation starter amongst the community.

Sounds like this person had a good time. The Gamestop in my town has midnight releases on big titles. My best memory was the Xbox 360 midnight launch at my local wal-mart. My sister and I showed up at 3pm to an already long line. We had food delivered to us, and the folks at walmart brought out 50 chairs for some people to sit in. They only got a shipment of 50 360's in. Luckily me and my sister were like number 30 and 31. A guy offered us a 100 bucks for our place in line and everything, we werent budging. Such a joy to finally bring my 20gb premium 360 home.
