Midnight launches are definitely not what they used to be, and i think people realized that. There's less excitement about standing in a line with people not smelling that great, for example.

Your sure your not standing next the the homeless guy who happens to be sitting next to the shop?

There needs to be some incentive which there isn't so that's why i have never done midnight launch.

They handed out golden hammerburst at the Gears of War 2 midnight release. I'm pretty sure that was the only way you could get them. They clearly said "Midnight Launch" and I had to beg them to let me pick up my buddies to get it as well since he had work in the morning. You're right though, they need to do that more often. That's personally the only time I can remember I got anything special at a midnight launch. I mean I got a crappy Pirate of the Carribean PC game at the Halo 3 midnight launch for trivia but I don't think that counts. :P

I've been strictly a PC gamer for the past few years so everything has been digital. I actually kind of miss lining up at midnight for a game that I have been waiting a while for. It's just something about it that will always hold a place in my heart. It becomes kind of lackluster to simply hit "play" on the game in Steam at 12:01am.

I'll be getting a PS4 at midnight launch though so I look forward to that.

depends sometimes they keep extra stock behind the counters for those who don't pre-order so it's a chance to actually pick up a game if it's pre-orders are sold out
